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.
EPIX aired the season finale of WAR OF THE WORLDS on Sunday, April 5, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT. The survivors attempt to turn the tables on their aggressors once and for all.
