Still lots of unanswered, lingering questions about the series, but it's good to see more footage.

Extant

Halle Berry stars in CBS' new Steven Spielberg-produced futuristic thriller "Extant," which debuts next week Wednesday, July 9, at 9/8c. Finally it's almost here. We've been talking about it for what seems like forever. And I'm definitely curious to find out what the cast and crew have been cooking up for us, being a lover of science fiction.


The series, as we've known so far, will center on a female astronaut trying to reconnect with her family, when she returns home after a year on a solo mission in space; her arrival back on earth comes with the realization that she's carrying what is likely an alien baby (or something).

Who might be responsible for that impregnation? It could quite possibly be an alien life form (at least that's what past teasers have suggested) who seemingly appears out of nowhere, on her one-man spacecraft, as played by an actor named Sergio Harford (whose professional and personal life are likely going to see changes by the end of the summer, when the series ends). 

We also learn that her current child with series husband, played by Goran Visnjic, is actually an android.


And there's more, including suggestions of something far more grand at work (or play) than this family realizes. Quite possibly, whatever she's carrying inside of her, might ultimately change the course of human history (or something like that).

All these "somethings" will hopefully be defined when the series runs this summer, debuting in less than a week. I'm looking forward to it!

Louis Gossett Jr. plays Halle's good-natured but unreliable father - a retired doctor living out his last years in an isolated community, which keeps him out of touch with the rest of the world, including his daughter and her family.


Grace Gummer, Camryn Manheim and Michael O'Neill also co-star in "Extant."

The script was penned by Mickey Fisher, who is executive producing alongside Spielberg, Greg Walker, Brooklyn Weaver, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. 

An extended behind-the-scenes look at the series has been released, providing audiences with even more inside information on what to expect, as well as a look at new footage we haven't seen in past teasers/trailers. So watch the video below. And if you missed them, check out 2 previously-released clips from the upcoming series, underneath:
