How Many Seasons of Resident Alien Are There?

Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle's been quite the busy bee (er, alien) since he landed on television sets two years ago.


Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle (or at least the socially awkward alien pretending to be Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle, brilliantly played by Alan Tudyk) has been quite the busy bee since he landed on our planet — and television screens — two years ago by way of SYFY's Resident Alien (catch new episodes Wednesdays at 10/9c on SYFY and USA Network, and next day on Peacock). Based on the Dark Horse comic of the same name by written by Peter Hogan and drawn by Steve Parkhouse, the critically-acclaimed show centers around an extraterrestrial visitor tasked with destroying all life on Earth.

What he didn't plan on, however, was learning to love humanity... well, some humans, anyway (shoutout Asta Twelvetrees). Fortunately for the rest of us, Harry decides to abandon his mission to bring about the apocalypse and even joins forces with the government, willingly teaming up with the person (Linda Hamilton's General McCallister) who wanted to capture and study him, to help prevent a different plot to destroy humanity. 

“What we try to do this year is really start moving in the walls and crunching down the alien threat on everyone by design,” creator, showrunner, and executive producer Chris Sheridan told TV Insider of the series' current third season. "The first couple of seasons were some alien stuff with a lot of character development, but we’re really ratcheting it up in Season 3. There’s more alien threat and there’s higher stakes. And Harry is, as always, in the middle of all of it while also trying to deal with his own emotional stuff."
