‘Colony’ Renewed for Season 2 at USA

Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal executive produce alien invasion drama

USA has renewed “Colony” for a second season, the network announced Thursday.

From executive producers Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal, the show stars Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies as a mother and father desperately trying to reunite with their son.

“Carlton and Ryan have successfully delivered a story that tests the strengths and weaknesses of a society in duress, and the bonds of a family divided,” Chris McCumber, president of USA Network, said. “‘Colony’s’ performance across all platforms has been impressive, and we can’t wait to see where the story takes us.”

Set in the very near future, some choose to collaborate with the occupation by an alien force and benefit from the new order, others rebel and suffer the consequences. After being separated from their son during the invasion, former FBI agent Will Bowman (Holloway) and his wife Katie (Callies) are willing to do whatever is necessary to be reunited with him.

Thus, when the powerful Proxy Snyder (Peter Jacobson) offers Will a chance to get his son back if he will collaborate with the occupational government, Will and Katie find themselves faced with the toughest decision of their lives. They will have to go beyond whatever they thought possible, risking their lives and their relationship to protect their family.

The drama is a co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions. “Colony” airs Thursdays at 10/9c on USA Network.
