Epix announced today that War of the Worlds has been picked up for a third season, with production having recently begun. The good news comes with three episodes remaining in the sci-fi drama's sophomore run.

A reimagining of H.G. Wells' classic novel, the series begins with astronomers in present-day Europe detecting a peculiar transmission from another galaxy. It's not long before intelligent extra-terrestrial life is descending on Earth and quickly wiping out most of mankind with devastating attacks, leaving only pockets of humanity in a deserted world. As the invaders hunt and kill the survivors, those alive are left asking who the attackers are and what they really want.

Per the network, the third season will see a turning point in the war between the survivors and aliens. A new partnership will form, and they will face an opposition more dangerous than ever. Look for Season 3 of War of the Worlds in 2022.
