Resident Alien Season 3 Plot

Even though Tudyk says that filming for Resident Alien season 3 could start in January, it should be noted that he also said in the same interview that he hadn’t seen any scripts for the next season. With just over three months left, showrunner Chris Sheridan and the writer’s room still have plenty of time to finish writing the rest of season 3’s scripts. Also, Tudyk’s hint that he has already started making a list of songs to send to Sheridan for possible use in season 3 of Resident Alien shows that he is just as excited to get back to filming the hit Syfy comedy show as fans are as the season 2 finale approaches.

Resident Alien season 3 could have a lot of new actors join the show’s ensemble cast. This is because the current season has opened the door for a lot of new aliens and let people out of military custody. Tudyk recently hinted that he would like to have more of his Firefly co-stars, like Morena Baccarin, make cameos on the show. He even said he had the ideal role in mind for her. In the meantime, the first two seasons of Resident Alien are now available to stream on Peacock.

Resident Alien Season 2 Recap

The first season of the show started in 2021 and got great reviews and ratings. During its ten episodes, the first two seasons of Resident Alien had a good number of viewers and good reviews from critics. Season 2 of Resident Alien had about 16 episodes. It also got its first nomination for a Saturn Award and was up for Best Cable Comedy Series at the Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards.

After the first part of season 2 was a hit, Resident Alien has been picked up for a third season. Still, critics didn’t like the second half of the season, so there will only be eight episodes in Season 3 instead of the 12 that were originally planned.

Resident Alien Season 3 Release Date

The Syfy network hasn’t said when Resident Alien: Season 3 will come out for sure. But on the plus side, we know that the next season will have 12 episodes, and it is likely that production will start on time as it did for the last two seasons. So, fans can be sure that the next season won’t be late and will come out sooner than they thought because the network made the renewal announcement on time.

If we had to guess, we would say it would come out in early 2023. Based on how the dates for the last season worked out, the series will probably start airing around January 2023. Also, we want to stress that all of this is just a guess at this point. Because of this, the official release dates will be published and confirmed by the Syfy network in the coming months. Fans should keep an eye out for this.
