Apple has unveiled a trailer for its upcoming sci-fi mystery series, Constellation. The storyline revolves around an astronaut, portrayed by Noomi Rapace, who faces mysterious events and peculiar sci-fi phenomena upon her emergency return to Earth, leaving viewers intrigued about her experiences in space.
The nature of the sci-fi elements remains ambiguous, with potential hints at a multiversal narrative or connections to false memory theories like the Mandela Effect. There are also suggestions that Rapace may be influenced or manipulated by an alien intelligence, or even that she herself is an alien intelligence. The series is set to debut with three episodes on February 21, followed by weekly releases each Wednesday.
Constellation features a cast including Noomi Rapace, Jonathan Banks from Breaking Bad, James D’Arcy, Julian Looman, William Catlett, and Barbara Sukowa. Created by Peter Harness, known for his work on Doctor Who, and directed by Michelle MacLaren, with a notable track record in genre TV including Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Westworld, and The X-Files.
The show promises a surreal and mind-bending experience, as hinted in the trailer. Apple’s use of HDR in its trailers enhances the viewing experience, particularly on devices like the Vision Pro headset.
Apple TV+ has quietly become a go-to platform for sci-fi enthusiasts, hosting successful series such as For All Mankind, which just concluded an acclaimed fourth season, and Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, wrapping up its inaugural season. Additionally, the streaming service has recently released the first season of Silo, based on Hugh Howey’s books, and the second season of Invasion.
