Episode   Credits   Transcript    

"The Resurrection" is the first episode of the 1st season of the War of the Worlds TV series.




  • Originally aired as a 120 minute episode, but has been formatted as two 60 minute episodes in most subsequent re-airings for scheduling reasons. While many guides list it as a two-parter, its initial airing and release on DVD as one double-length episode should make this the official recognition.

  3. Lt. Col. Paul Ironhorse: I don't believe in ghosts, and I sure as hell don't believe in aliens from another planet.

  • Are there any more war machines left over from the 1953 invasion?
