In its second season, this series underwent a dramatic format change. The show title was changed to "War of the Worlds: The Second Invasion." The present-day setting of the first season was changed to a post-apocalyptic future where the US is undergoing a second Great Depression, several main characters were killed during the pilot of the second season and the alien fighting team were cut off from government support. The aliens could now produce clones of humans which they could control and the plot point that required aliens to "change bodies" every 24 hours was removed. This last change allowed actors playing alien characters to become regular and recurring cast members. See more
