Tv Season Info

In the second and final season of this sci-fi thriller, Molly (Halle Barry) begins coping with losing Ethan (Pierce Gagnon), only to realize his programming is intact, meaning he is still alive. However, an act of betrayal sees her lose Ethan again and, coupled with the sudden death of a loved one in the season premiere, sends Molly spiraling out of control. Later, she becomes wrapped up in a murder investigation with detective JD Richter (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), but it proves to be a far more complex than meets the eye. Elsewhere, a more powerful Humanich named Lucy (Kiersey Clemons) is created and a deadly plot against the alien hybrids surfaces, putting Molly, Ethan, JD and others directly in harm's way.


Critic Reviews for Extant Season 2

Berry rallies in the second half of the premiere, seeming to finally embrace the absurdity of the space-invader plot with a "if we're doing this, let's do this" determination.

The love-hate chemistry between Morgan and Berry recalled a Bogart/Bacall noir. Sadly, it will no doubt be wasted by this criminally cack-handed drama.

Halle Berry, in the Season 2 premiere of Extant, is maybe a little looser than she was in Season 1, but she's also playing a person who has a pretty decent reason to be in a mental institution.

A major makeover doesn't look bad on Extant.

Yes, Season 2 makes concessions to mass appeal. Nonetheless, these make Extant more alive in ways it might have benefitted from had they been there from the start.

With its use of aliens and robots, Extant dares to merge classic science fiction into our everyday lives; so much so, that it starts to feel like it is holding up a mirror to the world we live in today.

"Change Scenario" employed all of the best show reboot tools: there was a time jump, a swift shedding of excess baggage (farewell, John!), and an injection of new blood to get the ball rolling in a new direction.

It looks as though Kruger and Shapiro have a handle on how to make Extant more engaging, and Berry's performance certainly seems liberated by the new changes.

Confusing, convoluted and never captivating, Extant asks you to worry about many apocalypses but forgets one thing: whoever could care about the end of a world this dull?

It's a courageous effort, but still looks like a failure to launch.

Audience Reviews for Extant: Season 2


The series has gotten a reboot so to speak, in hopes they won't be booted from the screen themselves. The pilot episode is a confusion made in time travel. There's 3-5 times we are shown before the actual story just to set us up with what happened. Their trick to 'retell' the story after the events of the first season. He husband is now dead, and Jeffery Dean Morgan is in it. She's been in a 'rest' home, but it's really for those they think have mental problems. after a few epiosdes, it's not really improved. I've slipped in watching it; besides Chiller shows Todd and the book of Pure Evil from 10-12!
