An EPIX sci-fi drama, the War of the Worlds TV show stars Gabriel Byrne, Elizabeth McGovern, Léa Drucker, Adel Bencherif, Emilie de Preissac, Natasha Little, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Ty Tennant, Bayo Gbadamosi, Stephen Campbell Moore, Stéphane Caillard, and Aaron Heffernan. The story takes place in present-day Europe and begins as astronomers detect a transmission from another galaxy and this serves as definitive proof of intelligent extraterrestrial life. Within days, mankind is all but wiped out by a devastating attack and pockets of humanity are left in an eerily deserted world. As aliens hunt and kill those who have been left alive, the survivors ask a burning question – who are these attackers and why are they hell-bent on our destruction? The survivors soon learn that the aliens’ savage attack on Earth is anything but arbitrary.
