Premise[]

In this new take on War of the Worlds, when astronomers detect a transmission from another star system in our galaxy, it is definitive proof of intelligent extraterrestrial life. Earth's population waits for further contact with bated breath, but does not have to wait long. Within days, mankind is all but wiped out, with just pockets of humanity are left in an eerily deserted world. As alien ships appear in the sky, the survivors ask a burning question — who are these attackers and why are they hell-bent on our destruction?
