It's been a few solid weeks since we've heard about TNT's forthcoming 'Falling Skies' season 3 premiere, but that will change in the next few hours as the network has promised a major new trailer this afternoon. Before that, however, a few new photos of the epic action have hit the web, but will the newest aliens introduced in 'Falling Skies' season 3 prove friend or foe? Get a sneak peek of 'Falling Skies' season 3 and today's trailer inside!

'Falling Skies' will premiere its third season on June 9, but you don't have to wait for a sneak peek of the epic new action. In addition to a brand-new trailer dropping soon, SpoilerTV got their hands on some new photos from the season that highlight some deadly looking alien technology that would probably give even Iron Man a bit of pause in the field.

We'll find out later if these are the "mega-mechs" we've heard so much about, but we can also gleam from the photos that time seems to have moved up a bit, as Tom cradles his newborn infant daughter. Plus, what might have the Skitters hiding around a corner?

In addition to former ’7th Heaven’ star Stephen Collins‘ appearance as surviving US President Benjamin Hathaway, the third season of TNT’s alien actioner also boasts former ‘House‘ star Robert Sean Wilson as previously unseen Charleston power-grid moderator Dr. Roger “The Rat King” Kadar, and Noah Wyle’s former ‘E.R.’ co-star Gloria Reuben as Marina Perlata, member of the resistance and aide to Tom Mason.

You can check out the new photos from 'Falling Skies' season 3 below, and stay tuned for the new trailer coming this afternoon!
