Constellation season 1 stream: preview

When Jo (Noomi Rapace) flees a doomed mission aboard the International Space Station and successfully navigates a safe return to Earth, it feels as is she's one of the lucky ones. Little does she know that her ordeal is just beginning. Read our guide below for how to watch Constellation season 1 online and for FREE with Apple TV Plus.

Being able to hold Alice (Davina and Rosie Coleman) again was her key source of strength up in space, but the girl that Jo comes home to isn't her daughter. Or at least, Alice isn't the person Jo remembers her to be. 

Alice, too, is left alienated by her mother, and their twisted relationship forms the heart of a mind-warping eight-part mystery in which nobody, apparently, is quite as they seem. 

Take Commander Henry Caldera (Jonathan Banks), who prioritises the science above all else, and his identical twin Bud, a former astronaut whose life was derailed by a controversial mission. 

Rich with head-spinning hallucinations, timeline hopping and unreliable perceptions, it's a challenging watch. Here we explain how to watch Constellation season 1 from anywhere, and don't forget to check all the ways you can get an Apple TV+ free trial.
