‘Resident Alien’ Renewed For Season 4

Moving networks in the USA

by Dave Elliott

Resident Alien will return for a 4th Season as NBCUniversal announces a renewal, however, it will be in a new home in the USA, moving from Syfy to USA Network (not that it will make a difference to UK viewers!)

Based on the Dark Horse comics, ‘Resident Alien’ follows a crash-landed alien named Harry (Alan Tudyk) who initially landed on Earth with a secret mission to kill all humans… However, over the course of his time in his small Colorado town, and getting to know people as the town’s doctor, he has had something of a change of heart.

In Season 3, Harry vows to work with General McCallister (Linda Hamilton) to rid the Earth of the Grey aliens – a task made more difficult when he discovers that the Grey Hybrid Joseph (Enver Gjokaj) has taken a job in town as the new Deputy. Joseph isn’t Harry’s only obstacle – Harry struggles to balance business and his personal life when he falls in love for the first time. Meanwhile, Asta (Sara Tomko) and D’arcy (Alice Wetterlund) move in together and struggle to discover their purpose in the world, Sheriff Mike (Corey Reynolds) and Deputy Liv (Elizabeth Bowen) continue their quest to find out who killed the Alien Tracker, and Ben (Levi Fiehler) and Kate (Meredith Garretson) are forced to deal with the subconscious repercussions of their alien abductions.

Things were looking a little dicey on the renewal front for the series on Syfy due to the limited budgets available on that channel. However, it is a very well-reviewed and liked series, so NBCUniversal was keen to find a way to keep it around. Back in 2021, USA Network started abandoning scripted series in favour of reality shows and live events. However, this year, they have decided that was a silly thing to do, and have started to work up a new scripted slate. Moving ‘Resident Alien’ gives USA Network a much-loved series, whilst also potentially expanding its reach, and relieving the financial pressure from Syfy. Both channels are owned by NBCUniversal. The shift should make no difference to the UK audience where the show airs on Sky Max.

Resident Alien was adapted to television by executive producer Chris Sheridan, who also serves as showrunner. Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg of Dark Horse Entertainment, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank of Amblin TV and Nastaran Dibai also executive-produce.

Resident Alien‘ will continue to air on Sky Max in the UK and will move to USA Network from Seasons 4 in the USA. If you want to keep track of this or any other shows, you can add them via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when they get a UK premiere date.
