Invasion Season 2 Episode 9 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch


Invasion Season 2 Episode 9

Apple TV’s stunning lineup has been the talk of the town. Still in its nascent stages, Apple’s streaming service is definitely turning heads. Every new show that they come up with gathers hype…and at times, the hype goes over the baseline. Viewers learned that as they begrudgingly finished the first season of Invasion, an Apple original that is now here with its second season. While the premise – an alien invasion – is inherently an exciting one, the creators failed to live up to that with the first season.

This new season sees a host of old characters reprising their roles, including Golshifteh Farahani and Shioli Kutsuna.

Last season’s disappointments needed to be washed away and we were certainly hopeful that Season 2 would be better. However, the episodes until now have failed to buck the trend. It seems unlikely that Invasion will be able to offer us anything markedly different going forward. 

Here is everything you need to know about Invasion Season 2 Episode 9, including its release date, time and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch Invasion?

Invasion is an Apple original and will only be available to stream on Apple TV+ and its digital partners. This is an exclusive original series and given the platform’s global presence, can be seen from any other geography on Apple TV+ as well.

Invasion Season 2 Episode 9 Release Date

Invasion Season 2 Episode 9 will be released on Wednesday, October 18, at 9 pm ET/PT. For the new season, Apple has bucked its strategy of starting off with a three-episode premiere given the length of each episode. Expect the runtime to be roughly 57 minutes or even more for the new episode, consistent with the timeframe of the previous season. Episode 8 of Invasion’s new season will be released with subtitles. 

The new episode’s title is “Breakthrough.” Episode 8 brought with it some overlap in the subplots, which might have some promise. However, the actual contents of the next episode are unclear at the moment. 

How Many Episodes Will Invasion Have?

Invasion’s Season 2 has been commissioned for a total of 10 episodes. This is the same number as the previous season. So, after episode 9, we will have just one more episode to go that will bring the season to a close.   

What happened in Episode 8?

Mitsuki has made significant breakthroughs already in her brief stint at the Amazon Lab. She makes another vital discovery, realizing that all the scientists who have gone before her are key to understanding the aliens’ language.

Trevante is caught by the military and sees more confusing experiments as he is locked up. Nikhil is getting impatient with Mitsuki’s breaks and wants her back in the room with the alien. He is at an impasse with Maya, who cannot let a vulnerable Mitsuki go back in to be burnt for Nikhil’s ambition.

Caspar leads the other kids to the lab where all the special kids still try to communicate with the aliens. It is revealed that Caspar and the kids saw each other in the same darkness as the aliens. But Caspar was the only one who didn’t wake up from the slumber like the others. When Nikhil learns that Maya has purposely sabotaged Mitsuki’s safety suits, he goes in alone to prove his madness.

Rose tells Wade, her co-worker at the station, about Caspar’s notebook and how it will be vital to win the war against the aliens. She also sets out to rescue Trev from the lockup as Nikhil’s antics trigger seismic activities in different areas of the country. His brutal battering by the alien force is confronted by Mitsuki, who ends up destroying it. Later, she realizes that it is a portal that took the humans to the dimension of the aliens.
