The battle against the Raps still has some fight left in it. Ahead of this week’s season 2 finale, USA Network’s Colony has officially been given the greenlight for a third season comprised of 13 episodes.
The news came today from the Network via a statement to press.
“Colony continues to fire on all cylinders creatively, with Carlton, Ryan and our incredible cast and crew striking a deep chord around the themes of humanity, survival and family,” said Chris McCumber, president of entertainment networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Along with our partners Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for our heroes next season.”
In the wake of a mysterious alien invasion, Colony focuses on an L.A. family fighting to stay together in a new world order. The series stars Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies, Tory Kittles, Peter Jacobson, Amanda Righetti, Jacob Buster, Isabella Crovetti-Cramp, Alex Neustaedter and Adrian Pasdar, and is from executive producers Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Ryan Condal (Hercules).
Season 2 has also included guest stars Laura Innes, Tony Plana, Jessica Parker Kennedy, William Russ, Keiko Agena and Paolo Andino.
“When Carlton and Ryan first pitched Colony, they described it as ‘the Nazi occupation of France, with aliens.’ In a world increasingly filled with uncertainty about authoritarian regimes, season three will forge an even deeper connection with our audience,” said Jeff Wachtel, president and chief content officer at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “It’s a quality show that we know will stand the test of time.”
Season 3 is expected to bow 2018.
