The Invaders (or The New Invaders) is a two-part television miniseries revival based on the 1967-68 original series The Invaders. Directed by Paul Shapiro, the miniseries was first aired in 1995.

The premise was used as the basis for a four-hour television miniseries on Fox. Scott Bakula starred as Nolan Wood, who discovers the alien conspiracy, and Roy Thinnes very briefly appeared as David Vincent, now an old man handing the burden over to Wood. The miniseries has been released in some countries on home video, edited into a single movie. The first part aired on November 12, 1995; part 2 aired on November 14, 1995 (both in two-hour time slots).

The miniseries was in essence an extended television pilot.[citation needed]



In the original broadcast version, the aliens were never shown. They do appear in subsequent airing on SYFY and on the DVD.
