'War of the Worlds' returns for a gripping Season 3 on EPIX. The show was considered a breakaway hit with Seasons 1 and 2 earning rave reviews. There have been enough adaptations of the cult story and irrespective of platforms, the intergalactic threat saga never gets old. Tom Cruise wading his way through, weaving in and out of the city, eluding death rays in Spielberg's hit 2005 part-thriller, part-horror flick of the same name, and the three-part BBC miniseries 'The War of the Worlds', an Edwardian period adaptation were solid examples of why this storyline could be borrowed time and again. The only challenge was to make it a notch better than its predecessors, and EPIX succeeded.

The pair will need to use every resource they have available to face opposition more dangerous than ever in their fight, once again, for the survival of all humanity."
