Colony Renewed for Season 2 at USA

Colony spoiler alert: The aliens occupiers aren’t leaving anytime soon.

USA Network has renewed its extraterrestrial-esque drama starring Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies for a second season, TVLine has learned. Additionally, the cabler has ordered 13 episodes, up from Season 1’s 10.

Colony, which reunited Holloway with his former Lost EP Carlton Cuse, premiered last month to 1.4 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating, held steady in Week 2 and at last tally was pulling 1.2 mil and a 0.5. It’s average Live+3 audience stands at 3.4 million viewers.

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

The fourth episode of the show’s current first season airs tonight at 10/9c.

    Why doesn’t Josh ever shave or get a haircut?Seems he can’t be on tv without his mullet and beard.

    Solid show, liking it so far. Not really thrilled how it is either 10 episodes or 13 with USA/SyFy and a lot of these cable channels. I think it is smart to do 10 episodes for season 1, just not sure if season 2 needs 13 episodes.

    Anyone else seeing that there are no aliens? That the occupiers are Earthling humans & the show is meant to be some comment on digital surveillance & police violence? Outside of that poorly hidden conceit, the rest of the show seems just like V but without the special effects. It’s about to disappear from my DVR schedule.

  6. Sarah Wayne Callies,who is starring on Colony, The role is somewhat like the one she had on The Walking Dead. Does’nt seem to get away from that type role.

    WOW, I just watched S.1 all 10 episodes back to back. Josh bruddha you rock. I was living in Hawaii for 30 years of which covered when Lost caught America’s imagination. Even though Bruddha you was immature in your acting for that series always trying to not get caught hiding behind a tree to stay out of da writers line out of sight out if mind so they wouldn’t write you next week’s script, that was criminal bruddha!!!!! When the general viewing audience wanted to see more of you. The Colony will have the viewers possibly even more than Lost because we love to see you Josh Bruddha on da big screen TV. The Colony will go bigger than lost because what a almost incredible truism possible story line of what either once was or what is to come. Stay the course on this 1 Josh man to man, bruddha you will show America JOSH HOLLOWAY ALREADY IS AND WILL BE what a actor that will go in history as legendary as The Duke John Wayne. You and this show will blow Lost as far as ratings and viewership goes out of the Ocean into space. Stupid yea . What a fantastic series I couldn’t stop watching it from the minute I started. It’s that good!!!!!
