Meet Halle Berry's astronaut in new trailer for Spielberg's sci-fi series Extant

A new trailer for Halle Berry’s upcoming sci-fi series Extant has arrived, showing off more of her mysterious space mission and the conspiracies that await her when she gets back to Earth.

Produced by Steven Spielberg, the upcoming CBS series tells the story of astronaut Molly Woods (Berry), who spends 13 months on a solo space mission. But when she comes home, she doesn’t come alone. The plot looks to be a high-concept swing, taking aim at what it means to be human, and possible extinction, all at once.

This trailer shows off more of Woods’ home life, and it seems like she’ll be doing a bit of investigating back on Earth to figure out what’s going on. We also get to meet her young son, who is saying all kinds of creepy, foreboding stuff.

The series is set to debut this summer, and follows the network’s new approach of scheduling “event-style” series in the typical TV doldrum season. After Under the Dome proved a solid success last year, they roped Berry and Spielberg in for this effort.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:

Extant premieres Wednesday, July 9, on CBS.
