After only a few episodes have aired, TNT is confident enough in the performance of its new sci-fi series Falling Skies from executive producer Steven Spielberg that the cable network has just decided to renew the series for a second season. The new order is for 10 episodes, which are expected to air next summer. For those who haven’t been watching, the series takes place in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. Tom Mason (Wyle), a Boston history professor and the father of three sons, must put his extensive knowledge of military history to the test as second in command of a regiment of resistance fighters protecting a large group of civilian survivors. Good news for early fans of the sci-fi series, and if you haven’t gotten on the bandwagon yet, I suggest trying to catch-up in order to see what this show is all about.
