BYUtv has greenlit their second scripted series, Extinct. After the success of Granite Flats, BYUtv’s first scripted series, the network is amped to produce Extinct. Written by Orson Scott Card (the writer of Ender’s Game), this sci-fi series takes place 400 years after the extinction of the human race. It follows a group of people who have been revived by an alien civilization. Throughout the season, this colony of revived humans will struggle with the aliens who destroyed humankind centuries before, all the while trying to build relationships with the mysterious aliens who revived them.
Local director, Ryan Little, is a perfect fit for this series with previous works such as Saints and Soldiers, and Forever Strong. With the storytelling ability of Orson Scott Card, the directing ability of Ryan Little, and the exploration of life after civilization, Extinct is likely to have something for everyone. We’ll let you know when the series is ready to premiere sometime next year so keep an eye out!
