As the list of streaming services continues to get longer, many of these platforms are having to find a niche in an overcrowded market. Netflix is leaning heavily into documentaries and delightfully messy reality TV shows while Apple TV+ is digging deep into its sci-fi bag. The latter found recent success with shows like For All Mankind, Silo, and Foundation and now it is hoping to continue that with Constellation, an upcoming series starring Noomi Rapace that has one super intense trailer.
We love a good psychological thriller, especially one with some possible conspiracy drama. It makes us question everything we see onscreen. And, if there’s an unreliable narrator, the story goes to a whole new level. Alongside its trailer, the synopsis for Constellation reveals that we will get all that and more in this series.
Created and written by Peter Harness (“Wallander,” “The War of the Worlds”), “Constellation” stars Noomi Rapace as Jo – an astronaut who returns to Earth after a disaster in space – only to discover that key pieces of her life seem to be missing. The action-packed space adventure is an exploration of the dark edges of human psychology, and one woman’s desperate quest to expose the truth about the hidden history of space travel and recover all that she has lost.
The Constellation trailer certainly gives us a peek into Jo’s spiraling life on Earth. What truths will she reveal? How can she keep herself and her family safe? What, exactly, did Jo see in space that is causing her to have a mental breakdown? We won’t have to wait long to get those answers.
What Is the Release Date for Apple TV+’s Constellation Series?
Constellation will run for eight episodes, with the first three debuting on Apple TV+ on February 21. That’s just enough to hopefully hook fans into its narrative. We know we feel hooked into Constellation just based on its trailer. The remaining five episodes will be released weekly every Wednesday leading up to the finale on March 27.
