Resident Alien: What’s it about?
Resident Alien is based on a comic book series of the same name and tells the story of an alien who has made it his purpose in life to wipe out all human life on Earth. His ship crashes near Patience, Colorado, preventing him from destroying Earth and returning home.
He assumes the identity of Dr. Harry Vanderspiegle (Tudyk), a local resident, and gets involved in the investigation into the town doctor’s murder without raising suspicion.
The show follows Harry as he travels the galaxy in pursuit of his missing ship, learns about the good in people, and plots his revenge on his mortal enemy, Max (Judah Prehn), a little child who can see past Harry’s human cloaking technology.
What Can We Expect From Resident Alien Season 3?
Even though Tudyk says filming for Resident Alien season 3 could begin in January, he also said in the same interview that he hasn’t seen any scripts for the upcoming season. Showrunner Chris Sheridan and the rest of the writer’s room still have more than three months to finish the remaining scripts for the upcoming third season.
In addition, Tudyk has hinted that he has already started compiling a playlist of songs to send to Sheridan for possible inclusion in Resident Alien season 3, suggesting that he is just as excited to return to filming the blockbuster Syfy comedy series as viewers are in the run-up to the season 2 finale.
Season 2 has opened the door for a wide variety of new aliens to join the cast, and the military has released many hostages, so it’s possible that a wide range of new performers may be cast in Resident Alien Season 3.
Tudyk also hinted that he would want to have Morena Baccarin, another of his co-stars from Firefly, make a surprise appearance on the show. The first two seasons of Resident Alien are currently available to watch online on Peacock.
