USA Network announced today that it has given the green light to season 2 of futuristic alien invasion drama Colony.
The series, which centers on one family’s struggle to survive and bring liberty back to the people of an occupied Los Angeles, stars Josh Holloway (Lost) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead).
“Carlton and Ryan have successfully delivered a story that tests the strengths and weaknesses of a society in duress, and the bonds of a family divided,” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. “Colony’s performance across all platforms has been impressive, and we can’t wait to see where the story takes us.”
Over its first three episodes, the series has seen an average combined L3 audience of 3.4MM P2+ (two same-night telecasts of each original episode). Additionally, more than half a million people sampled the series’ pilot during a targeted, two-week pre-linear release on select digital platforms including USANetwork.com, Hulu, the USA Network App and VOD.
The drama is a co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions.
Colony airs Thursdays at 10/9c on USA Network.
