War of the Worlds

About the Show

One of CBC’s most-watched dramas last year, WAR OF THE WORLDS returns with an action-packed second season in Fall 2021. Set in present-day Europe and based on the timeless story by H.G. Wells, WAR OF THE WORLDS is written and created by the BAFTA award winner Howard Overman (Misfits, Crazyhead, Merlin). After a series of brutal losses, the human survivors of the alien attack mount their own fight to take back their planet. It’s four months after the initial attack and Professor Bill Ward (Gabriel Byrne) has discovered more and more about the aliens. Most shocking of all are the undeniable similarities between the humans and the aliens – but Bill can’t find any possible explanation. With the human resistance struggling, the sheer desperation to survive will drive some to contemplate taking extreme measures. Could someone be willing to sacrifice one of their own in order to save mankind?

WAR OF THE WORLDS is Executive Produced by Johnny Capps, Julian Murphy, and Howard Overman through their company, Urban Myth Films.
