Ratings for the sophomore year of the Colony TV on USA Network dropped off pretty sharply from its freshman installment, but from week to week, it remained fairly stable. While the numbers were good enough to earn it a third season, how much longer will they suffice? How will it perform in the Nielsen ratings this time out? Will Colony be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. **Status update below.
A USA sci-fi drama, Colony stars Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies, Tory Kittles, Peter Jacobson, and Alex Neustaedter. The story unfolds in the near-future, in a world where citizens are under military occupation by the Colony Transitional Authority, as part of a large extraterrestrial invasion. Former FBI agent Will Bowman (Holloway) and wife Katie (Callies) were raising their daughter and two sons in Los Angeles, but were separated from the younger boy during the invasion and did everything they could to get him back. The third season kicks off six months after the season two finale, with Will and Katie rebuilding their family in the world beyond the walls. They soon begin a journey during which they’ll uncover the truth behind the occupation. Once again, this family will find themselves having to choose sides.
