‘Falling Skies’ Season 4: ‘Battlestar Galactica’s David Eick Takes Over As Showrunner

Falling Skies Season 4 David Eick Remi Aubuchon

TNT’s alien action-drama ‘Falling Skies‘ won’t air its third season until Sunday June 9, but already the acclaimed series has made a major change in anticipation of a fourth season pickup. Season 2 and 3 showrunner Remi Aubuchon will step down from the series, tasking former ‘Battlestar Galactica’ and fellow ‘Caprica’ showrunner David Eick to take his place, but will anything change for ‘Falling Skies’ season 4? Find out about the future of the series inside!

A few weeks from now ‘Falling Skies’ will start its third season on TNT, as Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) and the 2nd Mass continue their struggle against the Skitters and overlords alike, but already we’ve learned of a regime change in place for the fourth season. Via Deadline, it’s been revealed that ‘Battlestar Galactica’ producer David Eick will take over for former ‘Caprica’ partner Remi Aubuchon in advance of the fourth season.

‘Falling Skies’ has yet to receive a formal fourth season pickup from TNT, though the issue is considered a formality given the show’s success among younger demos, and production schedule that typically dictates writers begin scripting the season before a pickup.

Premiering June 9, the third season of TNT’s alien drama boasts former ’7th Heaven’ star Stephen Collins, who’s appearing as surviving US President Benjamin Hathaway, former ‘House‘ star Robert Sean Wilson as the previously unseen Charleston power-grid moderator Dr. Roger “The Rat King” Kadar, Doug Jones as the 2nd Mass’s new alien ally Cochise, and Noah Wyle’s former ‘E.R.’ co-star Gloria Reuben as Marina Perlata, member of the resistance and aide to Tom Mason.
