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.
