Plot Synopsis

Based on H.G. Wells' book of the same name, WAR OF THE WORLDS is set-in present-day Europe, where astronomers detect a transmission from another galaxy -- definitive proof of intelligent extra-terrestrial life. The world's population waits for further contact with bated breath. They do not have to wait long. Within days, mankind is all but wiped out; just pockets of humanity are left in an eerily deserted world. As alien ships appear in the sky, the survivors ask a burning question: Who are these attackers and why are they hell-bent on our destruction? This is a story of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances -- but they are more than just victims in a brutal war. The aliens' savage attack on earth is not arbitrary: its seeds are being sown before our very eyes. WAR OF THE WORLDS had its U.S. premiere on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT on EPIX.

The sophomore season of WAR OF THE WORLDS made its U.S. debut on Sunday, June 6, 2021 at 9pm ET/PT on EPIX. In the first season, an alien attack all but wiped out mankind, with just a handful of humans fighting to survive. And no one felt more rocked by the invasion than Emily, who discovered she may have her own strange personal connection to the aliens. In the new season, people are left reeling by the possibility that the invaders could be human. A tense fight to take back the planet awaits them. For some, the sheer desperation to survive will lead them to contemplate sacrificing one of their own.

Season 3 of WAR OF THE WORLDS made its U.S. debut on Monday, September 12, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT on EPIX. The new season picks up as the war between the survivors and aliens reaches a new turning point and a terrifying phenomenon grips countless people across the globe. With stakes at an all-time high, one survivor sets out to investigate, forming a tentative partnership with another unlikely hero along the way. The pair will need to use every resource they have available to face an opposition more dangerous than ever in their fight, once again, for the survival of all humanity. WAR OF THE WORLDS moved to its regular timeslot -- Sundays at 9pm ET/PT -- beginning September 18.
On Sunday, October 30, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT, EPIX premiered the Season 3 finale of WAR OF THE WORLDS. With Adina's plan in motion, the world's last hope is for Bill to make one more journey, risking his own life in search of Catherine's help.
