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.
Last season on Falling Skies, the human population in the new capital of Charleston reluctantly welcomed assistance from the Volm, a new race of aliens promising to supply the humans with a secret weapon that would win the war against the Espheni. After working together to destroy a major Espheni base, however, the Volm's real intentions regarding the Earth become murky. Meanwhile, Tom and Ann's rapidly growing daughter has begun to display remarkable abilities, raising fears about who or what she really is.
As season four opens, the Mason family and the remaining 2nd Mass suddenly find themselves under brutal attack by a new Espheni War Machine - and a new, deadly creation unlike anything previously encountered. Divided like chattel and spread to the winds, they must each forge new relationships in order to survive.
