By the time the “Extrapolations” trailer concluded, I have to admit I was pretty excited to see what the show has in store for audiences. But part of me also feels that since a lot of what we’re seeing in the show’s trailer are real inevitabilities for humanity in the coming years, it doesn’t exactly feel fun to consider living through them before they actually happen. That said, it would be great if the series ended up being such a hit that it built more awareness about the pressing environmental issues we face, so it could be a major force for good. Only time will tell.
“Extrapolations” stars a ton of major names, including Yara Shahidi, Kit Harington, Daveed Diggs, Matthew Rhys, Heather Graham, Sienna Miller, Tahar Rahim, Meryl Streep, David Schwimmer, Neska Rose, Judd Hirsch, Cherry Jones, Edward Norton, Michael Gandolfini, Indira Varma, Diane Lane, Adarsh Gourav, Gaz Choudhry, Keri Russell, Gemma Chan, Marion Cotillard, Forest Whitaker, Hari Nef, Eiza González, Tobey Maguire, Ben Harper, Murray Bartlett, and MaameYaa Boafo.
The upcoming show is being executive produced by Scott Z. Burns alongside Michael Ellenberg, Gregory Jacobs, Dorothy Fortenberry, and Lindsey Springer. The drama will continue the partnership of Apple TV+ and Ellenberg’s Media Res, with “The Morning Show” and “Pachinko” also being part of their dual slate.
“Extrapolations” will premiere on Apple TV+ on March 17, 2023, with new episodes debuting on Fridays.
