Watch Halle Berry Handle Uncertainties in 2 New 'Extant' Sneak Peek Clips

They don't answer any 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 on Wednesday, July 9, at 9/8c.

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, and who, by the way, looks just like a black man, 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).

All these "somethings" will hopefully be defined when the series runs this summer, debuting in just about 3 weeks. 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. 

2 new clips from the upcoming series have surfaced online, and are embedded below:
