The Steven Spielberg-produced alien drama Falling Skies is coming back to TNT for one last run, and here’s our first look at the final season.
It’s hard to believe the series has been around for four years, telling the tale of a group of survivors in the post-apocalypse waging war against alien attackers. With Noah Wyle and a varied cast of heroes at the forefront, the show has essentially rebooted itself at the end of each season, which, considering the creative shifts behind the scenes, has had decidedly mixed results along the way.
With a fifth and final season on the way this summer, it looks like current showrunner David Eick (Battlestar Galactica) will at least get a chance to bring the saga of the 2nd Mass. to a (hopefully) satisfying close. The fourth season, Eick’s first at the helm, dropped some weird storylines and introduced a few new ones. Judging by our first peek at the fifth season, which finds Wyle talking about the end as he walks through rubble, it seems Eick definitely aims to wrap this thing up. Somehow.
