After only a couple of episodes in the bag, USA’s new Carlton Cuse/Ryan Condal effort, Colony, has been renewed for a second season.
I just gotta say… thank goodness and yay!
Colony, which stars Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies as a husband and wife working on the opposite sides of an occupation (alien we think), has been getting decent ratings, especially because of the 3-day viewer grace period included in the ratings total.
USA Network President Chris McCumber said in a statement to Deadline:
“Carlton and Ryan have successfully delivered a story that tests the strengths and weaknesses of a society in duress, and the bonds of a family divided. Colony’s performance across all platforms has been impressive, and we can’t wait to see where the story takes us.”
This is definitely a good move on USA’s part. The show is quite interesting, and the mysteries keep me coming back.
OK. Josh Holloway keeps me coming back too. I was so mad when his last show, Intelligence, was canceled.
Colony airs Thursday nights at 10pm ET on USA.
USA’s official synopsis:
From executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Ryan Condal (“Hercules”) comes USA’s newest, highly-anticipated drama COLONY. Set in the very near future, COLONY centers on one family’s struggle to survive and bring liberty back to the people of an occupied Los Angeles. SAG winner Josh Holloway (“Lost”) stars as former FBI agent Will Bowman and Satellite Award winner Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”) stars as his wife, Katie, in the series which takes place in a dangerous world of divided ideologies. While some choose to collaborate with the occupation and benefit from the new order, others rebel and suffer the consequences. After being separated from their son during the invasion, Will and Katie are willing to do whatever is necessary to be reunited with him. Thus, when the powerful Proxy Snyder (Peter Jacobson, “House”) offers Will a chance to get his son back if he will collaborate with the occupational government, Will and Katie find themselves faced with the toughest decision of their lives. They will have to go beyond whatever they thought possible, risking their lives and their relationship to protect their family.
COLONY is a co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions. Nelson McCormick (“24″) also executive produces. The pilot was directed and executive-produced by Academy Award winning director Juan Campanella.
