Watch the First 3 Minutes of 'Falling Skies' Season 2!Kevin Fitzpatrick |
With summer rapidly approaching and many of our favorite high-concept series breaking for their finales (tear, 'The Walking Dead'), the June debut of 'Falling Skies' season two feels like a million miles away. So how might we tide ourselves over until the "Skitters" re-invade our TVs?
Wait no longer!
In anticipation of the show's 2-hour Sunday, June 17 premiere at 9 p.m., TNT has begun to whet viewer appetites by leaking the first three minutes of "Worlds Apart," straight from Emerald City Comic-Con! The premiere takes place three months after the 'Falling Skies' season 1 finale "Eight Minutes," which ended on the cliffhanger of Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) agreeing to be whisked off by the Skitters and their mysterious "overlords" in exchange for information that would lead to his son Ben's salvation.
For those unfamiliar with the series, ‘Falling Skies’ follows former history professor Tom Mason as one of the leaders of a human resistance force desperately struggling to fight back and survive in the aftermath of an alien invasion that killed off 90% of the planet’s population. In addition to protecting his children, Tom maintains a close relationship with the resistance’s doctor Anne Glass (Moon Bloodgood), as well as charismatic rogue John Pope (Colin Cunningham) and military leader Captain Daniel Weaver (Will Patton).
Check out the three-minute clip below, which picks up after Tom departed with the Skitters, to find Weaver, John Pope and his band of rebels, as well as Tom's children Hal and Ben engaging in all-out warfare with Mechs and Skitters in the abandoned streets! And when the guns stop and the smoke clears, it seems like Ben (Connor Jessup) still holds more than a grudge for having spent months under their thrall! And how about those impressive physical abilities he was left with?
The full look is below, so give it a watch and don't forget to check out 'Falling Skies' season 2 this summer on TNT! Have your own opinion? Share it with us in the comments!
