The second and final season of CBS’ Halle Berry drama Extant will premiere on Syfy UK on Wednesday January 13th at 9pm, it has been announced.
From Mickey Fisher and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV, Extant follows Molly Woods, an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space and discovers that she has been impregnated by an alien life-form. The show’s 13 episode second is poised to be one of change with the series away Molly’s (Halle Berry) work at the ISEA and focus on the search for her alien son who is threatening the human race.
As part of that change in direction there have been several casting changes. Season one regulars Michael O’Neill (The West Wing) and Hiroyuki Sanada (Helix) have exited the show, while Goran Visnjic and Camryn Manheim have been downgraded to recurring. Returning regulars include Halle Berry, Pierce Gagnon, and Grace Gummer. New cast additions include Jeffrey Dean Morgan, David Morrissey, Lyndon Smith, Nacar Zadegan and Melina Kanakaredes.
