A drama series that has barely come out of the gate has already picked up a renewal. Deadline.com reports that USA Network renewed the sci-fi series “Colony” for a second season.
The show, from Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal, has aired three episodes so far, with episode 4 scheduled to air tonight.
“The project, from Legendary Television and Universal Cable Prods., stars Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies and centers on one family’s struggle to survive and bring liberty back to the people of an occupied Los Angeles,” the Deadline story reports.
In announcing the renewal, Chris McCumber, President of USA Network, said: “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.”
The show has reportedly been somewhat soft in live viewing but has picked up strong gains in time-shifted viewing.
