On Thursday, Syfy announced that their hit series Resident Alien has been renewed for a second season. Series star Alan Tudyk reacted to the news in a statement to SyFy wire, stating:
“It kinda gives away that Harry doesn’t complete his mission and destroy the human race at the end of this season, but it’s great to get another season’s worth of trying to do it!”
He also posted an appropriately joyous reaction on social media:
Lisa Katz, Syfy’s president of scripted content, praised the series in her announcement, stating:
“With Resident Alien, everything just came together in perfect harmony — a script by Chris Sheridan that leapt off the page, a lead performance by Alan Tudyk, whose nuance between comedy and menace was pitch perfect, and a team of producers, cast and crew who were all striving to do something great. The appeal of this show transcended the sci-fi genre in a way that enabled us to bring in a broader audience, and as the series continues we hope to encourage more and more fans to discover Harry’s very particular perspective on humans.”
In case you haven’t seen the series yet (or couldn’t figure things out via the preceding statements), Resident Alien is a comedy-drama science fiction series about an alien who is supposed to wipe out human life on earth, but becomes conflicted about it after living among them. It’s based on a Dark Horse Comics series (really a set of miniseries) by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse that is also very good.
We like the show a lot around here and Alan Tudyk is a national treasure, so hearing it’s been picked up for a second season is definitely good news.
