Colony has been established on USA, and it’s not leaving anytime soon. USA Network has renewed the sci-fi drama, which stars Josh Holloway (Lost) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead), for a second season.
Season 2 of ColonyÂ will consist of 13 episodes, which is three more than the 10 episodes ordered for the series’ first season. The show was created byÂ Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Ryan Condal (Hercules), and in addition to Holloway and Callies, itsÂ cast includes Peter Jacobson, Tory Kittles, Alex Neustaedter, and Isabella Crovetti-Cramp.
“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,” said USA president Chris McCumber in a statement. “Colony‘s performance across all platforms has been impressive, and we can’t wait to see where the story takes us.”
Colony airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on USA Network. Its fourth episode airs tonight. Check out the series’ official description below:
From executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Ryan Condal (“Hercules”) comes USA’s newest, highly-anticipated drama COLONY.Â 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.Â 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.Â While some choose to collaborate with the occupation and benefit from the new order, others rebel and suffer the consequences. Â After being separated from their son during the invasion, Will and Katie are willing to do whatever is necessary to be reunited with him.Â 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 findÂ themselvesÂ faced with the toughest decision of their lives.Â They will have to go beyond whatever they thought possible, risking their lives and their relationship to protect their family.
