Call it the Apopcalypse: Pop culture’s continuing fascination with the end of the world as we know it. The latest work of epic eschatology is The After, a new mid-apocalyptic pilot from Chris Carter, the man behind shows like The X-Files and Millennium. The show will debut as part of Amazon Studios’ second-ever pilot season—with an exact premiere date still TBA—and viewers will get to decide whether they want a full season to find out what brought human civilization to a grinding halt. It looks a bit Lost-y in how it keeps most of its plot points in a mystery box, as eight (possibly connected) strangers are trapped together following an unexplained event. Check out the trailer below.
Look out for more on The After in the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands later this week.
