As excitement builds for the fourth season of TNT's hit drama Falling Skies, the network is giving viewers the chance to binge-watch the entire third season on Memorial Day. TNT will present all ten episodes of season three in a 10-hour marathon slated to begin Monday, May 26, at 10 a.m. (ET/PT). Falling Skies, which stars Noah Wyle, is produced by Amblin Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg.

Since premiering as the #1 new series of 2011, Falling Skies has ranked as one of basic cable's Top 10 original dramas among key adult demos for each of the past three years. Executive-produced by Spielberg and Amblin Television heads Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank, along with David Eick and Greg Beeman, season four of Falling Skies is set to premiere Sunday, June 22, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), following the launch of TNT's all-new drama The Last Ship.
In Falling Skies, Wyle stars as Tom Mason, a college professor who became an unlikely resistance leader following a massive invasion by an alien race known as the Espheni. Bloodgood is Dr. Ann Glass, a pediatrician who became the survivors' primary physician and recently gave birth to a daughter who, it turns out, is not entirely human. Patton is Colonel Weaver, the gruff and emotionally scarred commander of the 2nd Mass who has been leading the battle against the invaders.
