    Matt, you think it will get renewed?

  2. Bobbi says:

    I really hope it is renewed for Season 4. I thought they did a remarkable season this year. Really enjoyed the show. I want Linden and Holder back!

  3. Liza180 says:

    After that finale, we need to see what happens next.

  4. Meg says:

    Any news on the season finale of Falling Skies?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Ratings for FALLING SKIES — which is already renewed, regardless — are expected sometime Tuesday.

  5. Mari says:

    Great season! We need it to be renewed!

  6. Whatever says:

    I hope The Killing is renewed for another Season

  7. Susan says:

    I hope that THE KILLING is renewed I’ve been watching since day one. I think it’s Awesome! Linden & Holder are great together they make the show. Her dryness and his sense of humor works for me.

  8. Lisbeth Slander says:

    Such an underrated show. The acting is phenominal and that final scene of the finale begs for a season 4 to be produced.

  9. M Sapia-Bianca says:

    I really hope it gets picked up for another season. I liked season three better than the second season. It was so intense and wanted more as soon as the episode was over.

  10. Kim R says:

    Matt….can you do a Spoiler Alert! with Michael and discuss the finale. It will make me feel better. :) Thank you! :)

  11. Wesley says:

    Hope it gets renewed. Season three was a borderline masterpiece; it’s only misstep in my opinion was the final hour, which I find myself liking less and less the more I think about it. Still one of the best single seasons of a TV show I’ve seen in a long time. We need more Linden and Holder.
