It looks like the 2nd Mass just helped itself survive for at least one more year. TNT just renewed Falling Skies for a third season, slated to air in 2013.
From the press release:
Falling Skies is television storytelling at its very best, a powerful drama that’s told on both an epic scale and on a deeply personal level,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “With all the memorable and surprising moments taking place during the second season of Falling Skies, we can’t wait to see what DreamWorks Television and Falling Skies‘ terrific production team and cast members have in store for season three.
As someone who’s a big fan of the show, I’m thrilled. The season is constantly bringing to the fore more questions than answers, and for an apocalyptic survival series, ongoing mystery is key to keeping my attention. I’m so glad that TNT — and the rest of the series’ fans — is noticing what the show has to offer!
Join me in saying, “Hooray!” Now, let’s take those aliens down!
