A first trailer was presented at the end of July 2018.
“ The First is not what many would expect from the series. Instead of an exciting science fiction adventure, the chief author Willimon often only serves us greasy family drama over long phases of this first season. It is less about the challenges of the journey to Mars itself, but more about the inner conflicts of the travelers, which are not even presented in a particularly comprehensible manner. "
