Halle Berry Lands TV Role As An Astronaut On “Extant”

Since giving birth to her daughter Nahla five years ago, Halle Berry has scaled back the number of movies she films.  Fans who've been missing Halle up on the big screen are in for a treat – the actress is heading to the small screen next year! 


We'll be getting weekly doses of Halle in a new TV project titled "Extant".  Halle will be playing the role of an astronaut in the new drama series that will air on CBS.  Halle "will play an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. Her experiences lead to events that change the course of history."

The series is scheduled for 13 episodes and will make its debut next summer. 

Now that Halle is the mom of two kids and with Nahla starting kindergarten, maybe she's looking for the more routine schedule that starring on TV shows can bring. 

Will you check out Halle's new series?
