TNT alien actioner 'Falling Skies' underwent something of a makeover going into its fourth season, with David Eick tapped as the new showrunner, while a story shakeup divided the cast. Now, it seems the Noah Wyle alien drama's changes were in fact a chrysalis, as TNT has renewed the series for a fifth, and decidedly final season to air in 2015. Plus, what other TNT series have been renewed?
‘Falling Skies’ season 4 rains down its 4th episode of the year with “Evolve or Die,” which sees Tom and Weaver make a horrifying discovery on a mission to liberate Matt, while Pope makes a new friend on the road, and Hal tests out his leadership abilities.
‘Falling Skies’ season 4 rains down its 3rd episode of the year with the “Exodus,” in which Tom and the others put to action their plan to escape the Espheni ghetto, while Maggie forces a confrontation with Alexis (Scarlette Byrne), and Anne comes to a shocking realization of her daughter's origins.
‘Falling Skies’ season 4 rains down its 1st episode of the year with the season 4 premiere “Ghost in the Machine,” as a vicious attack scatters the 2nd Massachusetts, placing Tom and others in a Skitter-controlled ghetto, while Matt languishes in a reeducation camp, and Ben discovers a shocking evolution for the ever-mysterious Alexis (Scarlette Byrne).
Last year's ‘Falling Skies’ finale “Brazil”
TNT's 'Falling Skies' has taken time to catch its breath after last year's season 3 finale "Brazil," but the season 4 premiere "Ghost in the Machine" barely gets past the opening credits before the bombs start dropping. Watch the first five minutes of the June 22 premiere now to find out what divides the 'Falling Skies' cast, and what major cast member bites it right off the bat!
The fourth season of TNT alien actioner 'Falling Skies' won't debut until June 22, but episode "Ghost in the Machine" already arrived with the first photos from the premiere. Check out the latest from Tom Mason, creepy daughter Alexei, Pope and more, as well as some brand-new trailers to herald the arrival of 'Falling Skies' season 4!
While all the broadcast networks scurry about with their surprising renewals, cancellations, pickups and scheduling for Upfronts, TNT added a number of exciting new series to their development slate, simultaneously debuting trailers for Noah Wyle's return to 'The Librarians,' 'Transporter: The Series,' period drama 'Public Morals' and more.
Despite not returning until June 22, 'Falling Skies' season 4 has been none-too-shy with footage of late, teasing out yet another epic trailer from WonderCon this past weekend. The latest prophesies a few new wrinkles to the TNT alien actioner's fourth round, along with a potentially major reveal for a mystery character we've seen in every trailer to date.
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'?
