CBS has released a new promo for “Extant,” its summer drama starring Halle Berry, and it packs an awful lot of dread into 30 seconds.
The show stars Berry as an astronaut who has returned from a solo, 13-month mission aboard a space station … pregnant. The show will delve into how and why that happened and the presumably dire consequences of the fact that she’s pregnant.
We’re presuming “dire” because when Berry’s son (Pierce Gagnon) shows her a picture of a family on a spaceship, he tells her they’re in space so they’re safe from “extinction.”
“Extant” premieres July 9 on CBS.
