Invasion co-creator Simon Kinberg addressed the possibility of a third season in an interview with /Film, explaining his vision for the Apple TV+ sci-fi drama by saying: “I saw the second season as part one, like the first 30 minutes of the second act of a movie, which is where you really start to get into the action.”
Kinberg, who created the show with David Weil, continued: “I saw, in my hopes and dreams, a season 3 like the back half of the second act of a movie where now the action is really accelerated, and the challenges are massive and seem insurmountable. Then if, God willing, we were to have a fourth season, that’s where, for me, it would be the third act of just final conflict and everything erupting, and then resolving. So there was a build, and it did mimic in many ways the structure of a movie.”
The co-creator also gave an update on the progress of writing Invasion Season 3: “We were working on season 3 scripts before the (writers) strike started, and we’re working on those scripts, and the response to season 2 has been really, really positive, and even bigger than season 1. Apple’s been really happy with the show. So fingers crossed we will get a shot at making season 3.”
