Exclusive First Look: Falling Skies Season 3 Key Art Bares a Chilling Fact — Plus: A New Enemy!

When TNT’s Falling Skies returns, it becomes clear that much has happened in the seven months that have elapsed since the events of the Season 2 finale — and TVLine has a first look at a new poster that drives home the newly realized stakes. Plus: Get a first look at a new (yet “familiar”) enemy with whom the humans must battle.

In the action-packed, two-hour Season 3 premiere (airing Sunday, June 9, at 9/8c), President Tom Mason, Weaver and the troops discover in the midst of a mission that the kids who have been harnessed by the Espheni (aka “fishheads”) ultimately absorb their dorsal parasite and transform into ruthless soldiers, if not tended to in time. As such, this Season 3 poster warns, “Battle Them Or Become Them.” (Click to zoom.)

  • I still wish TNT could have saved V from ABC and paired it with Falling Skies. It would still be on the air today if they had.

  • TNT cancelled Leverage, so I will NOT watch.

    • Can’t watch one good show, deliberately avoid watching another – sound logic.

    • Leverage wasn’t even that great of a show. It went on far too long, had failed comedy, and was way too corny and ridiculous. However, it got a good ending, so let it be. Falling Skies is far better any how, and as stated by wordsmith, your comment holds zero logic.

    • As you might recall, Red-eye was killed in the last episode of last season by the “fish-head” overlord during the assault on the weapon. The same battle where Dai was killed and Tom found out Anne was pregnant…

  • Anything starring Noah Wyle is worth watching. Falling Skies definitely fills the bill! Can’t wait!

  • Booyah counting the days. Despite the fact you need to check your reality cap at the door this is one of my favorite shows.

  • I need to get into this show. It won’t last long but it looks incredibly good.

    • Third season already…..so it’s pretty stable.

    • It’s on it’s 3rd season, not many shows nowadays can boast that, especially not sci-fi ones.

    • it actually owns the summer programing in the key demo last time i checked, and they just hired a new show-runner for season 4 so i think it’s pretty stable. definitely give it a shot it’s one of the better shows out there.

      • Why would you hire a new show runner for a show that hasn’t been picked up for a 4th season?

        Also, it’s pretty stable, but with only 10 episodes a year, and a cost of 4+ million dollars an episode who knows what the ratings will be like when it returns.

  • I hope they do a long “previously on Falling Skies”, because I have absolutely no idea of what happened last season.

    • TNT is airing the entire series over the next couple weeks. I plan to at least watch last season’s finale again, since I can’t really remember what happened either, outside of that new ship with the awesome new alien landing.

      • Amended. The entire season 2 airs this Saturday. It starts at 10am EST, and the finale is at 7pm Saturday night. This site really needs to ability to edit comments.

        • Thank You! I love this show, but with nearly a year break I like to re-watch finales because I can’t remember where it left off.

  • As long as Pope and Maggie are still around, I’m good. Looks like there’s no hope for Karen, though…

    Comment by Steve F. – May 31, 2013 05:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • As long as Pope, Tom and the Colonial will be back so will I. I really don’t care enough about Maggie and I never liked Karen so if neither is back I’m ok with that. But like that horrid Emma on The Following, I’m assume that both Maggie and Karen will be back.

  • Falling Skies is pretty good if you want to something to watch during this summer. Can say the same thing about Teen Wolf which has actually been surprising for a MTV type of show.

  • Falling Skies, V, and Teen Wolf all AMAZING shows.

  • Seriously, come on fans let them know we want falling skies back for season4! They needed to put falling skies on a main channel like 4 they would get a lot more promotion. I love falling skies and hal mason you are awesome come on good hal defeat bad hal. HAL BETTER NOT DIE!
