Finally! Watch the First Trailer for CBS's Space Baby Drama Extant (VIDEO)

By Tim Surette

Apr 30, 2014

One of this year's most anticipated summer shows that is not contained under a dome is CBS's Extant, the network's second consecutive gamble on a high-profile science-fiction drama that's intended to air during the offseason (the first one being that show under a dome). Extant stars Halle Berry as an astronaut who may've gotten busy or artificially inseminated in space, because she comes back to Earth after a 13-month mission with a baby inside of her. But here's the thing... she was on a SOLO space mission! So what happened? Well, that's presumably what Extant is about! 

After much ballyhoo but only a few cryptic descriptions of the series' premise, CBS has finally released the first trailer for the series via Entertainment Weekly, and it appears that I may be writing all sorts of "Extant does mondo ratings!" stories in July. Have a look:

Oh, and that little boy, Halle Berry's son who's about to have a space baby as a little brother or sister? He's totally a robot! 


Extant premieres Wednesday, July 9 on CBS. Will you be watching? I will.

    Well at least it cant be worse than halle berry as storm in the x-men films....or maybe it can 😨

    I was able to watch the first episode as part of a testing for ratings at the MGM in Vegas. It was 100% HORRIBLE!!! There is ZERO chemistry between Halle's character and her husband. The plot has been done over and over again. I can't believe CBS is wasting their money and our time. I strongly advise against watching this show!!!!

    Hally Berry in scifi, okay I'll watch at least 1 episode.

    eww. maybe she sat on one of them nasty party couches up in the space station...

    Cough " Once Upon a Time " cough. Seriously though it worked pretty well in Story Brook. This might be just as interesting at the very least to give it a watch. It can't do worse than some other shows assuming it was made well anyway.

    Well I like Halle Berry enough to watch 3-4 eps, plus it is sci-fi. But as usual, I will not watch spoilers...

    I have my doubts. It's been a long-long time ago that the mix of Sci-fi and baby worked for me. I can count them on two fingers.

    I have to say that trailer looked pretty good. But I'll resevre judgement until after the pilot airs.

  • KLB9037 May 04, 2014

    Yeah, I agree. If a person likes sci-fi, then they are going to watch, period. I guess I can understand how others who don't enjoy this type of content might quickly dismiss it out of hand. But I'll watch and hope for the best.

    Kinda sorta sounds interesting, but just like Gravity with Clooney and Bullock, the lead means I shall not be watching this.
