The war against an occupying alien force enters a volatile new phase when Falling Skies returns for its third season, which tells the extraordinary story about life and survival in the wake of a catastrophic alien invasion.
Noah Wyle stars as a college professor who becomes an unlikely resistance leader in this gripping series from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg.
In addition to Wyle, Falling Skies stars Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Connor Jessup, Maxim Knight, Seychelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Carter.
As the new season of Falling Skies opens, seven months have passed since the survivors of the 2ndMass reached Charleston, which has been named capital of the New United States.
The government has formed a tenuous alliance with a band of rebel skitters, but the alliance may not be enough to overpower the enemy Espheni, whose forces are now being led by an even more sinister overlord.
To complicate matters further, another race of aliens has just entered the battlefield...
Among the guest stars set to appear this season on Falling Skies are Doug Jones, Stephen Collins and Terry O'Quinn. Gloria Reuben also guest-stars in a multiple-episode arc as Marina Perlata, an aide to Wyle's Tom Mason.
In addition, Robert Sean Leonard is slated to guest-star as Roger Kadar, an obsessive but gifted scientist who runs the local power grid and lives underground with his pet rats, earning him the nickname "The Rat King."
Falling Skies is produced for TNT by DreamWorks Television. Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks Television heads Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank serve as executive producers, along with Remi Aubuchon and Greg Beeman.
