The New Trailer for Halle Berry's 'Extant' Offers More Questions Than Answers


The first real trailer for CBS' new summer series Extant dropped yesterday (via EW), but instead of offering answers, it just gave us a whole lot more questions about the Halle Berry sci-fi drama.

The Steven Spielberg-produced series is about an astronaut named Molly Woods (Berry), who returns from a 13-month solo space mission to discover that she's — surprise! — pregnant. The new trailer shows Woods experience a close encounter of the very mysterious kind while orbiting the Earth ("I saw something in space — it was real."). She's also got a creepy young son who's worried about humanity becoming extinct.

So is Berry's character pregnant with an alien baby? And what's the deal with her son? And should we all be studying the entry for the word "extant" for clues? Watch the new trailer below and then hit the comments with your theories. Extant premieres Wednesday, July 9 on CBS.
