TNT Renews Falling Skies For Season 2

TNT has ordered a 10-episode second season of its Noah Wyle-fronted alien invasion drama Falling Skies, to air in summer 2012.

With a cumulative weekly audience of more than 6 million viewers, the Steven Spielberg-produced thriller stands as cable’s No. 1 new drama.

Falling Skies is a true standout series, from its ambitious storytelling, high-profile cast and production team to its phenomenal success when it comes to international and time-shifted viewing,” said TNT bigwig Michael Wright. “We’re reaching new audiences with Falling Skies and look forward to seeing where this fascinating and exciting series takes us next.”
