Starring Noah Wyle Falling Skies is currently averaging 5.9 million viewers.
Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) said “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.”. “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.”
Currently in the US Falling Skies, which currently airs on TNT Sundays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), chronicles the devastating aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the months since the initial invasion, the few remaining survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force, whose nature and purpose remains a mystery.
In the UK Falling Skies is currently airing on FXUK Tuesdays at 9PM and next week is episode 3 “Compass”
