LOS ANGELES, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- U.S. cable network TNT says it has begun production on the second season of its popular science-fiction series "Falling Skies."
The show is from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg.
Set in the aftermath of an invasion by an alien military force, "Falling Skies" stars Noah Wyle as Tom Mason, a Boston history professor and the father of three sons who must put his extensive knowledge of military history to the test as second-in-command of a regiment of resistance fighters protecting a large group of civilians. Moon Bloodgood plays Dr. Ann Glass, a pediatrician who has become the survivors' primary physician.
"In the second season of 'Falling Skies,' viewers will learn what happens to Tom after his decision to go with the aliens at the end of the first season," TNT said in a news release. "Tom hopes that by agreeing to a dialogue with the invaders he will not only free his son Ben from the invaders' influence, but also get a better picture of the aliens' overall plan."
