Apple TV+ is set to launch “Constellation,” an eight-part series that blends psychological thriller elements with a conspiracy-based narrative. This show, featuring Noomi Rapace of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” fame and Jonathan Banks from “Breaking Bad,” is expected to deliver a unique blend of suspense, action, and space exploration. With Apple TV+ already having tasted success with shows like “For All Mankind” and “Foundation,” “Constellation” is anticipated to be a different yet thrilling experience for its audience.

Mark your calendars for February 21, 2024, as “Constellation” will make its global debut with the first three episodes, making up almost half of its eight-episode season. New episodes will be released every Wednesday until March 27. While the show is not officially labeled as a limited series, the possibility of a second season hinges on the audience and critical reception, especially if the central mystery captivates viewers.
