Invasion season 2 live stream: preview

Humanity’s fight for survival continues. Told from the perspective of multiple characters scattered around the globe, Invasion explores how their lives dramatically change in the wake of an alien takeover. But, as creator Simon Kinberg enthuses, where "season 1 was the calm before the storm… season 2 is the storm". Brace yourselves as we explain below how to watch Invasion season 2 online and for FREE with Apple TV Plus.

Invasion joins a growing list of Apple TV Plus sci-fi shows that deliver gripping drama, tickle the grey matter, and whose multi-million-dollar budgets show in the awesome spectacle on-screen. It’s the brainchild of Kinberg (The Martian, Legion) and David Weill (Hunters, Citadel), both of whom have produced  a string of critically acclaimed hits for TV.

Most of the main cast are back, including Golshifteh Farahani (Extraction) as Aneesha, Shamier Anderson (John Wick: Chapter 4) as Trevante, and Shioli Kutsuna (Murder Mystery) as Mitsuki, with Paddy Holland and India Brown being upgraded to series regulars.

Despite temporarily quelling their alien oppressors, victory was short lived, and the relentless, spiky black blobs have strengthened their stranglehold on the planet. Now Aneesha is forced to take extreme measures to protect her family from the increasingly vicious ETs. Mankind is woefully outnumbered and cities worldwide have been razed to the ground. But perhaps Mitsuki – the only person to have made contact with the alien beings – holds the key to bringing about peace between the two species.
