Resident Alien Season 3 Release Date: The release date for Resident Alien Season 3 is still unknown, but there are plenty of story, cast, and plot details to learn about. Alan Tudyk from Firefly plays an alien sent to destroy Earth in the quirky dramedy that will premiere on SyFy in 2021. After crashing, he takes the name Harry Vanderspeigle and lives as a human, where he accidentally feels emotions. “Harry” decides that he doesn’t want to destroy Earth after all and would rather spend his life with the people of Patience, Colorado.
But just because Harry has stopped being an alien invader doesn’t mean that characters like General McCallister, played by Linda Hamilton, believe it. The aliens who sent Harry there in the first place are also not happy with his new attitude. When season 3 of Resident Alien comes back to SyFy, the story will take one of its most interesting turns yet. Since the Alan Tudyk-led show was renewed, it won’t be long before viewers can go back to Patience to see what happens to the alien pretending to be Harry Vanderspeigle.
Is Resident Alien Season 3 Renewed?
There will be a new season of Resident Alien. Just before the second half of season 2’s August premiere, Resident Alien season 3 was renewed in July 2022. But SyFy has made some changes, as the order for Resident Alien comes with the caveat that there will be fewer episodes in season 3). Previous seasons were renewed for 12 episodes each, but Resident Alien season 3 will only have 8.
What Will Be the Release Date of Resident Alien Season 3?
There is no date yet for when Resident Alien season 3 will come out. Since the show was renewed in July 2022 (according to Deadline), everyone thought it would start in 2023. But since the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes started in May and are still going on, there is no information about when the new season of Resident Alien will start and there are no trailers or other promotional materials.
It’s possible that SyFy will air Resident Alien season 3 in 2024. At least we know from an Instagram post by star Sara Tomko that filming was done by May 2023, so we can hope that the delay won’t be too long.
Where to Watch Resident Alien Season 3?
Since they own the IP, it’s safe to say that U.S. cable users will be able to watch Resident Alien: Season 3 on Syfy. If it follows the same schedule as the last season, Resident Alien: Season 3 will air on Tuesday nights at 10 p.m.
What Will Be the Plot of Resident Alien Season 3?
Harry Vanderspeigle made sure that the hybrid alien child he named Bridget was safe by giving them to the Greys. This is where Season 2 left off. Harry couldn’t leave his friends on Earth to be destroyed by the Greys, so he decided to stay and try to save the planet.
When we last saw Harry, he was working with General McCallister (Linda Hamilton), a mysterious and cruel military officer who had been trying to catch him. Cast photos from Season 3 of “Resident Alien” showed that Harry and McCallister will work together on a plan to stop their common enemy.
The show will still spend time with the people who live in Patience. In one of the last scenes of Season 2, Sheriff Thompson (Corey Reynolds) was interviewing former government agent Joseph Rainer (Enver Gjokaj) for a job as a sheriff’s deputy.
He didn’t know that Rainer had killed Peter Bach (Terry O’Quinn) while Harry was saving Bridget from a government facility in Wyoming. Joseph says, in a cryptic way, that he’s good at keeping people in line. Some of the people in Patience just found out that Harry is an alien, so it’s likely that Joseph will be a big problem in Season 3.
Who Will Be in the Cast of Resident Alien Season 3?
The rest of the main cast from “Resident Alien” should be back, too, besides Alan Tudyk and Linda Hamilton. In Patience, this includes Corey Reynolds as Sheriff Thompson, Elizabeth Bowen as his deputy Liv Baker, Levi Fiehler as Mayor Ben Hawthorne, Meredith Garretson as Hawthorne’s wife Kate, Judah Prehn as their son Max, who was the only one who could see Harry for who he really was, and Gracelyn Awad Rinke as Harry’s best friend Sahar.
Sara Tomko plays Asta Twelvetrees, a local nurse and Harry’s friend. Alice Wetterlund plays her best friend D’Arcy Bloom, and Gary Farmer plays Asta’s father, Dan Twelvetrees, the owner of a local diner. Lastly, Season 3 could have one or more famous people come as guests. In one of the most memorable episodes of Season 2, Harry took Carlyn (Alex Borstein), a government researcher, out on a date under false pretenses. In particular, she is a nuclear laser physicist who can give Harry the part he needs to fix his spaceship.
Resident Alien Season 3 is set to premiere on SyFy in 2021, with Alan Tudyk playing an alien sent to destroy Earth.
