Sunday night, 'Falling Skies' season 3 came to an ultimate end in "Brazil," setting up the TNT alien actioner for its guaranteed fourth season in 2014. Before the Spielberg-executive-produced drama kicks up production on another round, however, departing showrunner Remi Aubuchon previewed the new season to come under 'Battlestar Galactica' vet David Eick, as well as a few lingering plot points from the past season.
This time last year, TNT renewed its alien action-drama, 'Falling Skies,' just barely in time for Comic-Con, but 2013 seems to have given the 2nd Massachusetts a bigger head start. The Steven Spielberg invasion series will officially return for a fourth season in 2014, this time with David Eick ('Battlestar Galactica') in place as showrunner, replacing Remi Aubuchon.
While most accounts rank TNT's 'Falling Skies' season 3 premiere as on par, if not an improvement for the series, we learned weeks earlier that showrunner Remi Aubuchon would depart by the end of this latest cycle, the second departure in the show's history. 'Battlestar Galactica' vet David Eick has been tasked to fill in, but what caused Aubuchon's exit in the first place?
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?
