TNT has decided to renew the sci-fi drama Falling Skies for another season. The network has settled on ordering 10 episodes for the show’s third season, set to air in 2013. The show premiered last summer and stars Noah Wyle as a former history professor who becomes one of Massachusetts’ military leaders following a worldwide alien invasion.
