Falling Skies season one gave us a sometimes-intense look at the world after a devastating alien invasion. But in season two, the stakes get massively raised, and life gets a lot harder for the Second Mass, according to the show's stars and showrunner.
We were lucky enough to speak to stars Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Colin Cunningham and Drew Roy, plus new showrunner Remi Aubuchon. And one thing came through loud and clear: This season, Pope's dark, twisted view of the world is a lot closer to the truth. Minor spoilers ahead...
We already presented some of our interviews with the Falling Skies stars a while back, focusing on the challenge of continuing the story after a really out-of-left-field season-ending cliffhanger. The good news is, after watching the first few episodes of the new season, we can attest the show does a pretty good job of making that cliffhanger pay off, and the new season is feeling a lot stronger in general. (We'll have a full review of the new episodes on Friday.)
