Second season of Extant premieres tonight on CBS

Astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) is back in a new season of the scifi drama Extant. After a so-so first season, the series was rebooted by new showrunners Elizabeth Kruger and Craig Shapiro. “It’s a substantial reboot, in that we’re going to come in, in this time and place, several months [after the Season 1 finale], and that puts Molly in a completely different head space," Kruger told Yahoo. "Her mental stability is potentially in question, and we’re going to find out how that happens. There is a significant amount of new casting that changes the landscape of what we’re doing, and it’s less about Molly as mom, and more about Molly as warrior. Molly as a sexy warrior.”

Extant season 2 premieres Wednesday, July 1 at 10/9c.
