Apple Drops Nightmarish Trailer for Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Constellation’

Building on its slate of original series, Apple TV+ has unveiled the unsettling trailer for its next sci-fi psychological thriller Constellation, which seems equal parts creepy and compelling. Created and penned by Peter Harness, this upcoming eight-part mind-bending thriller TV series stars Noomi Rapace as Jo, “an astronaut who returns to Earth after a disaster in space — only to discover that key pieces of her life seem to be missing. The action-packed space adventure is an exploration of the dark edges of human psychology, and one woman’s desperate quest to expose the truth about the hidden history of space travel and recover all that she has lost.”

Noomi Rapace’s Jo will be joined by Emmy Award nominee Jonathan Banks as Henry alongside James D’Arcy, Julian Looman, William Catlett, and Barbara Sukowa, as well as introduces Rosie and Davina Coleman as Alice. The new trailer for Apple TV+’s ‘Constellation‘ blends mystery and an unsettling atmosphere, hinting at how Noomi Rapace’s astronaut, Jo Ericsson, is lured into a web of hidden dangers far more profound than she could have imagined.

The trailer opens with European Space Agency astronaut Jo Ericsson aboard the ISS when a catastrophic explosion nearly claims her life; however, she manages to eject and land back to safety. In the trailer, we hear Jo saying, “When I was up there, the only thing I could focus on was getting back to my daughter.” However, things take a bizarre turn after Jo reunites with Alice (her daughter) as she starts hearing voices and having visions.

“I have a piano in my house and I don’t play the piano,” Jo says. We even see Noomi visiting her psychiatrist who asks about hallucinations as she copes with PTSD and hears her daughter’s voices. Later shots of Jo, as she navigates her life haunted by disorienting visions, memories, and experiences, are shown off. Thoughts of her time in the space shuttle above trigger visions of an attack, and while talking to her daughter about her childhood, she’s struck by the unsettling realization that her memories might not be real and the one she’s talking to and hearing might not be her real daughter.

Just when it seems like nothing makes sense, Jo finds solace in Henry (Jonathan Banks), who has witnessed astronauts grappling with similar psychological issues. “I invented a machine we took into space … and I saw something, but it seems like it doesn’t want to be seen,” says Banks in the trailer. The ‘Constellation‘ definitely trailer looks like a gripping psychological thriller with intriguing sci-fi elements. The trailer offers no answers, but it does raise fascinating questions: who is this enigmatic figure that haunts Noomi’s Jo? Alien, multiversal self, or simply a product of her fractured mind? We can’t wait to find out.

Turbine Studios and Haut et Court TV collaborated in the production of Apple TV+’s ‘Constellation,’ with executive producers including David Tanner, Tracey Scoffield, Caroline Benjo, Simon Arnal, Carole Scotta, and Justin Thomson. Additionally, MacLaren serves as an executive producer, alongside Rebecca Hobbs and co-executive producer Jahan Lopes for MacLaren Entertainment.

Constellation premieres on Apple TV+ with three episodes on February 21, followed by new episodes released weekly every Wednesday through March 27.
