There still isn't much known about CBS' upcoming sci-fi series Extant, and the network is keeping its new show as mysterious as ever with a brief and beautiful first teaser. The short clip shows a cell dividing and turning into human life, while giving a nod to Jurassic Park with the slogan, "Life always finds a way."

Steven Spielberg is an executive producer on the series

The first of Extant's 13 episodes will premiere on July 2nd at 9PM ET/PT. It stars Halle Berry as an astronaut returning to Earth, whose experience in space "will change the course of human history." That's a bold premise, but Extant has a strong team to help pull it off: alongside Berry, Steven Spielberg is one of the series' executive producers.

CBS is hoping Extant will give it a strong summer, backed by the return of Under the Dome on June 30th at 10PM ET/PT. CBS' continued success would be good news for Amazon as well: it has a deal to stream both Extant and Under the Dome just four days after they air.
