If you’ve been following the saga of a group of ragtag survivors agains seemingly overwhelming alien invaders, aka Falling Skies, then you’re going to be happy about this news. TNT has ordered a second season of the show.
Coming from Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks TV, the show premiered last month with 8 Million viewers, making it cable’s top series launch of the year. Since that time the series has averaged 6.4 Million viewers for its first three episodes and is attracting strong ratings overseas as well.
The network has ordered 10 episodes for Season 2, which is slated to air in Summer 2012. Although that may not seem like a lot of episodes, it’s about average for basic cable.
Falling Skies stars Noah Wyle, Mood Bloodgood, Will Patton, Sarah Carter and Drew Roy. It airs Sundays at 10/9C on TNT.
