After delays due to the global health crisis, the crew of Apple TV Plus sci-fi series “Invasion” have resumed production with COVID-19 safety measures in Manchester, England, reports Deadline.

The series is about an alien invasion that spans across multiple continents, offering a look through multiple perspectives around the world. The series was set to be filmed in New York, Manchester, Morocco, and Japan. Only the scenes in Morocco and New York were shot because the production was put on halt in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The sci-fi drama stars Sam Neill as Sheriff John Bell Tyson, Shamier Anderson as Trevante Ward and Golshifteh Farahani casted as Aneesha Malik. Tyson is a rural lawman on the verge of retirement, Ward is a soldier stationed in Afghanistan, and Malik is a first-generation Syrian immigrant living in Long Island.

It’s written and executive produced by Simon Kinberg and David Weil. Jakob Verbruggen is the director and executive producer alongside Audrey Chon, Amy Kaufman and Andrew Baldwin serving as executive producers.

“Invasion” is among the first Apple TV Plus shows to resume production with new health safety protocols. Another sci-fi drama “For All Mankind” has also resumed filming its second season.
