Summer Sci-Fi Preview: Falling Skies Returns for Season 3

Noah Wyle

The third season of Falling Skies could turn into either War of the Worlds or E.T. — which just happen to be two movies directed by Steven Spielberg, an executive producer of the TNT alien-­invasion series. A new ally from outer space has given the human resistance the upper hand in their battle for survival against the Espheni, but not everyone is so trusting, especially given recent evidence of a traitor in their midst.

Weekend TV: The Newsroom, Falling Skies, The Great Escape

Newsroom

There aren't enough words. Except in the world of Aaron Sorkin, where there are always enough, maybe too many, as the Emmy- and Oscar-winning maestro of the hyper-verbal aria (The West Wing, Sports Night, The Social Network) aims his sights back on TV with the exhilarating, exasperating and often sensationally entertaining The Newsroom. (It premieres Sunday at 10/9c following summer hit True Blood.) read more

Falling Skies' Noah Wyle: Tom Has No Illusions of Peace After Visiting Aliens

Noah Wyle

Falling Skies is back on Sunday (9/8c, TNT)... and Tom Mason will be too from his time away with the alien Overlord.

Tom (Noah Wyle) will return a changed man after the aliens make it pretty clear that his visit aboard the ship was far from a peace offering. In fact, the 2nd Mass will be in even more danger this season, which could actually be Tom's fault.

Still, there may be hope on the horizon when the outside world makes contact. Will the promise of a stable life and safety be too good to be true? TVGuide.com turned to Wyle to get the scoop on the second season, including the quick progression of Anne (Moon Bloodgood) and Tom's relationship and the inevitable, impending deaths... read more

On the Set: Falling Skies Amps Up the Sci-Fi Action in Season 2

Falling Skies

Under a cold, driving rain, a platoon of resistance fighters moves through piles of dead, charred Skitters — the spidery aliens that invaded Earth and massacred billions — and smashed-up Mechs, their giant deadly robots. Signs of who (or what) killed them are nowhere to be found, but that mystery could provide the truth about the invasion that kicked off TNT's Falling Skies. Right now, however... read more

The Cast of Falling Skies on Why Their Alien Invasion-Resistance Tale Could Work

Noah Wyle

Stop us if you've heard this one before. Aliens have landed on Earth and they have not come in peace. While most of the world's population has been killed, a ragtag group of survivors stage a resistance.

This is not a new idea to TV. We've seen V's Fifth Column and the U.S. government in The Event take a stand against threatening extraterrestrials, so what makes TNT's Falling Skies, which premieres on Sunday at 9/8c, different? "We haven't been canceled yet," star Noah Wyle deadpans.

VIDEO: TNT debuts new Falling Skies trailer — will heroes rise?

Be that as it may, the show's cast and producers offered five real reasons why they think Falling Skies (produced by some guy named Steven Spielberg) could work better — and last longer — than more recent stabs at the genre.

Beware: Some of their answers might still seem, well, a little familiar... read more
