Sunday, June 17 will see the the arrival of 'Falling Skies' season 2, near of a year after the action-packed post-apocalyptic alien drama first debuted on TNT. Even better than simply getting to revisit the world of the 2nd Massachusetts fighting off the Skitters, the return of 'Falling Skies' means one very important thing: Colin Cunningham his back as the bad-ass biker brigand John Pope!
'Falling Skies' season 2 debuts with a two-hour premiere this Sunday at 9:00 p.m. on TNT, which will see Tom Mason returned from the Skitter ship he departed on in season 1 finale "Eight Minutes." Chief among those suspicious of his return is Colin Cunningham's John Pope, breakout character from the first season, and now-trusted leader of renegade squad "The Berserkers," who thinks that Tom could be a danger to the existence they've crafted. So what's on deck for season 2?
We recently had a chance to sit down with Colin Cunningham, a sci-fi veteran of series like 'Stargate SG-1' and 'The 4400,' who gave us the inside scoop on the darker, "more hardcore" season of 'Falling Skies,' and just what's in store for the battle against the Skitters!
We're less than a week away from the season 2 premiere of TNT's underrated post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama 'Falling Skies,' and already its hard to believe that near of a year has passed since the show ended on its tense cliffhanger. Now that time has passed for both the viewers and the characters, what other unanswered questions remain before the big season 2 premiere this Sunday?
A good idea is a good idea, right? And even if 'Falling Skies' bears a number of comparisons to 'The Walking Dead,' some more apt than others, what's one more? Post-airing talk shows like AMC's 'Talking Dead' are fast becoming one of the best ways to expand brand awareness and keep viewership up after shows have aired, and TNT is finally getting into the game...with a twist.
We're still in that weird lull of TV programming where all of the major network shows have wrapped up for the year, yet none of the major summer shows have made their debut. 'Falling Skies' remains high on that list not for its cool sci-fi premise alone, but also for the buzz-worthy nature of its expanded second season, which should give the under-performing series time to shine! We've told you a bit about the upcoming run of episodes, but how will it all end?
You know one of the benefits of Upfront week, that doesn't always get as much attention? In addition to all the new schedules and series announced (TNT dropped their biggest announcements this morning), existing shows arrive with descriptions of the first episode runs, ripe with juicy details for advertisers to pore over. So what's on tap for the first half of 'Falling Skies' season 2?
We make no secret of our piqued interest for TNT's second season of the Spielberg-produced post-alien invasion drama 'Falling Skies,' which garnered meager ratings in its initial 2011 season, but seems to have picked up quite a bit of steam in its second. But why talk, when you can go behind the scenes to see where we pick up the cast and crew in season 2?
You know, in the aftermath of an alien invasion that kills the majority of the human population, there's one bright spot which we don't often hear enough about: clearly, it's open season for graffiti artists! That's why if you haven't watched the first season of 'Falling Skies,' TNT has a few simple signs for you.
Summer TV can be tough, the way it so tantalizingly teases us from afar, much as the season itself. We've got 'True Blood,' 'Breaking Bad,' 'Weeds,' and FX's shows, not to mention all of TNT's summer slate. So for those looking for their sci-fi kick until 'The Walking Dead' returns this fall, how about a fresh look at season 2 of the Spielberg-produced post-apocalyptic invasion drama 'Falling Skies?'
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?
TNT's Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi actioner 'Falling Skies' didn't make the biggest landing in its initial 10-episode run summer 2011, but the alien invasion thriller did turn enough heads to warrant a second batch of 10 episodes, set to debut sometime this summer. But a whole year later, what mysteries do we need to remember?
