One would never have guessed that an alien invasion would be more amusing than terrifying. Resident Alien, which airs on SYFY, is a smashing success for the channel because to the show’s hilarious and endearing central character, Harry (Alan Tudyk).
It’s Patience, Colorado, and Harry, an extraterrestrial stuck on Earth, has to pass for a human so he can fit in among the locals.
The success of Resident Alien has led to SYFY renewing the show for a third season before the second half of season 2 even premieres. These are the current known details regarding Resident Alien season 3.
What Is The Plot Of Resident Alien?
Resident Alien is based on a comic book series with the same name, and it tells the story of an alien who has made it his purpose in life to wipe out all human life on Earth. His ship crashes in Patience, Colorado, and he has to recover its missing components before he can destroy Earth and return home.
He assumes the identity of a human inhabitant, Dr. Harry Vanderspiegle (Tudyk), and gets dragged into the investigation of the town doctor’s murder.
The series follows Harry as he searches for his lost ship, discovers the goodness of humanity, and plans his revenge on his sworn adversary, Young Max (Judah Prehn) is able to see through Harry’s human cloaking device.
Where Did Season 1 Of Resident Alien Pick Up?
The first season of Resident Alien explains Harry’s motivations for visiting Earth and how he ends up here. Harry’s ship gets struck by lightning while he’s on a mission to wipe out all life on Earth, and he crash-lands on the planet below.
He murders Dr. Harry Vanderspiegle and assumes his identity so that he may stay under the radar as he looks for the pieces of his ship that have gone missing. He leads a solitary life, watching Law & Order reruns to learn how to act and talk like a human.
There until police chief (Corey Reynolds) enlists him to assist with the autopsy and murder investigation of the village doctor. He’s fascinated enough to agree to help, even though it means he’ll have to interact with people.
He gains insight into human nature as he fills the function of town doctor temporarily. One of the few people who can see through his human disguise is a little boy named Max (Prehn), and the two of them are at first adversaries but eventually become friends.
A military clandestine operation with bad intentions is looking for Harry as he pieces together his ship and the device to destroy the world. After deciding not to destroy Earth, Harry fixes his ship and is headed home when he finds a stowaway.
We Honour Bill Terezakis’s Life And Legacy With This Season 2 Finale.
Does anyone know who Bill Terezakis is? Terezakis was a pioneer in the field of special effects and prosthetic make-up, having cut his teeth on early episodes of shows like Sliders and Seven Days. He’s contributed to a wide variety of shows and films in recent years, including Resident Alien, Salvation, The Terror, The Man in the High Castle, and a lot more.
What Can We Anticipate From Resident Alien’s Upcoming Third Season?
When asked about a season 3 teaser, Sheridan stated, “Season 3 is still in the planning stages, but we do know there will be 12 episodes, and I’m hoping they can all premiere at once.
With so many of our characters invested in the alien story, I can tell you that there will be some extra extraterrestrial material in the upcoming season. Our stories will always take place in towns, but the danger they face from supernatural forces has increased.”
There has been a recent shift in the television industry toward shorter seasons and fewer total season orders. The 22-episode season is far shorter than what is now the norm. It’s not surprising that Resident Alien only had six episodes in its second season given the show’s dwindling ratings.
