First Look 'Extant' Footage Reveals Premise (Halle Berry Stars In Steven Spielberg-Produced Sci-Fi Series)

This new spot for the series gives us a key piece of information we didn’t have before today, regarding premise.

Halle Berry’s stars in CBS’ new Steven Spielberg-produced futuristic thriller series Extant, which debuts on WednesdayJuly 2, at 9/8c.

The series, as we’ve known so far, will center on a female astronaut trying to reconnect with her family, after she returns home after a year in space. Her experiences lead to events that ultimately change the course of human history. And the key piece of information the below new teaser reveals is that it appears that she’s carrying an alien baby, which she brings back with her to earth. At least, that’s what I got from the spot. Watch it for yourself below.

Louis Gossett Jr. will play her good-natured but unreliable father – a retired doctor living out his last years in an isolated community, which keeps him out of touch with the rest of the world, including his daughter and her family.

Goran Visnjic, Grace Gummer, Camryn Manheim and Michael O’Neill will also star in Extant.

The script was penned by Mickey Fisher, who will executive produce alongside Spielberg, Greg WalkerBrooklyn WeaverJustin Falvey and Darryl Frank
