Syfy Renews 'Resident Alien' for Season 2

Ahead of its eighth episode airing tonight, Syfy has today renewed its original drama series Resident Alien for a second season. The drama will likely return with new episodes in 2022.

The drama stars Alan Tudyk, Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds, Alice Wetterlund, Levi Fiehler and Judah Prehn.

Chris Sheridan developed the drama based on the comic of the same name. He executive produces with Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg and David Dobkin. Universal Content Productions, Amblin Television, Dark Horse Entertainment and Jocko Productions produce.

"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," said Lisa Katz, President of Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "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."
