AppleTV+ Slots Premiere Date for New Anthology 'Extrapolations' Created by Scott Z. Burns

During the streamer's presentation at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour today, AppleTV+ announced the premiere date for its upcoming original anthology series Extrapolations created by Scott Z. Burns.

The 8-episode first season will launch on Friday, March 17 with its first three episodes. New episodes will then be released weekly every Friday until the season finale on April 21.

Told across a season of eight interconnected episodes, the drama introduces a near future where the chaotic effects of climate change have become embedded into our everyday lives. Stories about love, work, faith and family from across the globe explore the intimate, life-altering choices that must be made when the planet is changing faster than the population. Every story is different, but the fight for our future is universal. And when the fate of humanity is up against a ticking clock, the battle between courage and complacency has never been more urgent. Are we brave enough to become the solution to our own undoing before it's too late?
