After a wash of cancellations and series finales in recent months, it’s nice to get some good news in the science fiction community. TNT announced yesterday that they have renewed Falling Skies for a second season.
The new drama is set six months after the invasion and occupation of Earth by a hostile alien race. It stars Noah Wyle (ER) and Moon Bloodgood (Journeyman, Terminator: Salvation), and features Stargate‘s own Colin Cunningham (Major Paul Davis) in the important, recurring role of John Pope — leader of a gang of outlaws.
The second season will be comprised of 10 episodes, like the first, and will air next summer.
Falling Skies airs Sundays at 10/9c on TNT in the United States. Four episodes have aired to date.
