While the first teaser for ‘Extant‘ didn’t tell us much, the new trailer finally gives us a feel for what the look of the show will be. When there wasn’t concern for her role in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ from Berry being pregnant, she was quite busy preparing for her role in this series that ends up with her character being with child. Only the question here is where did the child came from as she has been in space for the last 13-months on a solo mission? How exactly is she pregnant in that scenario? What did she come across while on her mission? What does that mean about humanity not being alone in the universe?

Well it is too early to tell but this 30-second trailer does tease quite a bit. Take a look:

In a thrilling drama, Berry will play an astronaut who returns home from a year-long solo mission in space and tries to reconnect with her husband and son in their everyday life. Her experiences in space and home lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.

As you can see, not only are we going to be following the domestic drama that Berry’s character has with her husband and robot son, but it would appear some larger conspiracy is at work. The question is will it be aliens or a government cover up of some kind? Will the idea of ‘Extant’ also deal with the possible extinction of the human species or will it in fact be the continuation of an alien species that will be interacting with humanity as the story moves forward? There are so many questions on what direction this series will take still. While alien impregnation isn’t new, the other mysteries that surround the show and the prophetic words uttered by her current son give quite a few interesting plot lines.

Has the trailer caught your attention or do you think Berry should just stick to playing comic book characters?

‘Extant’ will star Halle Berry and will premiere on CBS Wednesday, July 2, at 9:00 PM, ET/PT.
