Fellow Mormon and Ender’s Game author Orson Scott Card has created a new sci-fi TV series called Extinct that will be shown exclusively on BYUtv starting in October 2017.

The first trailer was recently released, and it has me really intrigued.

The premise is as follows:

The 10-episode action-packed series takes place 400 years after the extinction of the human race and follows a small group of humans who are revived by an alien civilization. The aliens claim they want to restore the human species, but the reborn humans uncover new dangers, hidden agendas and powerful secrets that challenge that claim and threaten to annihilate the human race all over again.

Extinct carries the colony of revived humans through struggles with the aliens who extinguished humankind centuries before — while trying to understand and get along with the mysterious aliens who revived them. Nothing is as it seems to be, and if they aren’t careful, courageous, and unified, they’ll find themselves under the control of one group or the other.

The talent they have on EXTINCT is pretty impressive as well! The series was co-written by Aaron Johnston (Earth Unaware, Earth Afire, Earth Awakens) and it was directed by Ryan Little (Saints and Soldiers, Outlaw Trail).

Chad Michael Collins (Sniper, Freakish) is set to star alongside Victoria Atkin (Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate), Jaclyn Hales (Unicorn City), Yorke Fryer (How to Get Away with Murder), Jack Depew (Mad Men, The Fosters) Matthew Bellows (Grimm, Fuller House) and Jake Stormoen (Mythica).
