Extrapolations, a series of episodes focusing on the near-future impact of climate change, is coming to Apple TV+ next month. Specifically, on March 17
The streaming service has released the first trailer, featuring a cast full of big names. Among the stars featured in the series are Meryl Streep, Sienna Miller, Kit Harington, Daveed Diggs, Edward Norton, Yara Shahidi, Matthew Rhys, Gemma Chan, David Schwimmer, Keri Russell, Marion Cotillard, Forest Whitaker, Tobey Maguire and Murray Bartlett (who was most recently seen in The Last of Us).
The eight-episode series features “interwoven stories about love, work, faith and family,” says Apple. They depict how people around the planet are adapting (or maybe not) to the effects of climate change. It covers a period of several decades in the mid-21st century, during which time humans landed on Mars.
Extrapolations premieres March 17 on Apple TV+
Given the cast and the visual effects-filled trailer, it’s clear that Apple has spent for this series. The clip shows a future version of Manhattan and hints at technology that could allow people to “thrive” in a world further devastated by climate change.
Contagion writer and An Inconvenient Truth producer Scott Z. Burns, created the series. The first three episodes of Extrapolations will premiere on Apple TV+ on March 17, with the remaining five arriving weekly.
