Linda Hamilton, Mandell Maughan, and Alex Barima have joined the cast of our upcoming series Resident Alien in recurring roles. Neat, right? Right! Read on for a quick guide to the show and the cast of characters.

Resident Alien explained…

Based on the Dark Horse comic, SYFY’s Resident Alien follows Harry, an alien played by Alan Tudyk (Rogue One, Firefly) who crash lands on Earth and passes himself off as a small-town human doctor. Things get rocky when he’s roped into solving a local murder and realizes he needs to assimilate into his new world. As he does, he begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his secret mission and asking the big life questions like: “Are human beings worth saving?” and “Why do they fold their pizza before eating it?”

But wait, there’s more!…

Thee Linda Hamilton (Terminator: Dark Fate, Dante’s Peak) will be joining Tudyk as General McCallister, a high-ranking official who seemingly plays by the rules and runs a tight ship but secretly oversees a covert operation looking for aliens. Mandell Maughan (Bajillion Dollar Propertie$”, Bobby Moynihan) will play Lisa Casper. And Alex Barima (The Exorcist, Riverdale) will play David Logan. Maughan and Barima’s characters will be dispatched by General McCallister to find the mysterious alien played by Tudyk.

Clearly, this will be one heck of a ride, so be sure to visit to stay updated on the latest news, premiere details, photos and more!
