War of the Worlds Season 2 is right around the corner as the French Science-Fiction Drama makes its come back after two years of its initial premiere. Written and Created by BAFTA Award-winner Howard Overman, War of the Worlds is a loosely based adaptation of the 1898 novel of the same name by H.G. Wells. This is the third televised adaptation of the same book, and this time it is based upon contemporary France.
In this version, we have astronomer Catherine Durand who detects a transmission from another star. This was definitive proof of the existence of extraterrestrial lifeforms. But before humanity is able to recognize what it meant, an alien spaceship appears over the Earth as they are hell-bent on destroying the planet. Large Meteors start raining from the sky taking down everything in its path. All of humanity is wiped out except for a few survivors who were either underground, underwater, or within metal walls.
The scientists work on learning more about their aerial foes as they fear a second wave of meteors trying to take down the remaining few humans. There is only a little glimmer of hope, but the threat makes the humans feel afraid to take their chances. Out of the remaining few, Emily has found out how she might have some connection to the space invaders. Meanwhile, there is always the possibility that the invaders are led by some human trying to take over the world.
