War of the Worlds is a bold, contemporary reimagining of H.G Wells' classic novel. Set in present-day Europe, War of the Worlds is an eight-part series that follows pockets of survivors forced to team up after an apocalyptic extra-terrestrial strike. War of the Worlds is written and created by the BAFTA award winner Howard Overman (Misfits, Crazyhead, Merlin) and has received rave reviews internationally. Collider praises the premiere episode, calling it a "must-watch for the sheer panic-attack hysteria of the invasion itself. It's a rapid-cut, sweat-inducing freakout on a large scale pulled off to perfection."
War of the Worlds weekly at 9:30pm on SBS. Episodes will be available on SBS On Demand each week on the same day as broadcast.
The series will be subtitled in Simplified Chinese and Arabic for SBS On Demand, available immediately following its premiere on SBS.
