Some months ago, we heard the surprising news that TNT would look to adapt its Noah Wyle-starring adventurer film trilogy, 'The Librarian,' for an ongoing TV series, with Wyle potentially reprising the title role. Now, the cable network has made things official with a 10-episode order and a cast that includes Rebecca Romijn, John Larroquette, and original series stars Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin.
Well, this is a twist. No doubt 'Falling Skies' star Noah Wyle earned the leading role in TNT's alien actioner through relationships forged as the Indiana Jones-esque 'Librarian' in multiple TNT films, but could Wyle go back to lead an ongoing series spinoff dubbed 'The Librarians'? Get the latest on Wyle's 'Falling Skies' future on 'The Librarians' right here!
Apart from the other major genre excitement this weekend, 'Falling Skies' will premiere its third season with a two-hour installment that picks up months after we last left Tom Mason and the rebels in season 2 finale "A More Perfect Union." The third season will include all manner of new twists and sci-fi action, so how would you like an early sneak peek right now?
'Law & Order: SVU' has featured cameos from countless big names and character actors alike, some of whom have been reused multiple times. Thanks to a recent 'SVU' marathon on the USA network this weekend, we got to remember some of those random stars that have shown their faces on the cop drama. However, we were not expecting to see 'Falling Skies' lead Noah Wyle.
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?'
