A drama series that is closing in on the final episode of its current season will be back for another cycle. USA Network announced that it has renewed “Colony” for season three.
The season two finale of the well-received sci-fi series is scheduled to air this Thursday, April 6.
Season three received a 13-episode order from the cable channel. The season is set to premiere in 2018.
The series comes from producers Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal.
“Starring Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies, ‘Colony’ takes place in the not-so-distant future as an alien invasion changes life in Los Angeles as we know it,” USA notes in its announcement. “In this new world order, humans stay alive by selling each other out to their new ‘Hosts’ and, as a group of complicit elites rise to power, a growing resistance does whatever it can to fight for humanity.”
The series is co-produced by Legendary Entertainment.
