France’s critically acclaimed sci-fi series Missions now has a new stateside home, as AMC Networks’ Shudder streaming service has acquired the rights to the series from AB International Distribution. The terms of the deal give Shudder exclusive “first rights” for broadcast in the U.S., Canada and UK/Ireland for the first season of the series, which will launch on September 28. The streaming service will also co-produce the show’s 10-episode Season 2, slated to air some time in 2018.

Created by Henri Debeurme, Julien Lacombe and Ami Cohen, and directed by Julien Lacombe, Missions examines how a joint European mission to Mars (Ulysses 1) quickly changes from exploration to rescue. When the European crew of astronauts and scientists learns that they’re not the first crew to visit Mars and that the original crew has disappeared, they decide to go searching for the missing mission. What the European crew discover will raise more questions than they answer, causing them to question everything they’ve been told so far…and question who around them they can really trust.
