“For the NYCC panel, stars Alan Tudyk (Rogue One), Sara Tomko (Once Upon A Time), Corey Reynolds (The Closer), Alice Wetterlund (Silicon Valley) and Levi Fiehler (Mars), alongside executive producer and showrunner Chris Sheridan (Family Guy), dialed in from Vancouver, where they’re back in production to finish filming the season.

ABOUT RESIDENT ALIEN:
Based on the Dark Horse comic, SYFY’s RESIDENT ALIEN follows Harry, an alien played by Tudyk that crash lands on Earth and passes himself off as a small-town human doctor. Arriving with a secret mission to kill all humans, Harry starts off living a simple life… but things get a bit rocky when he’s roped into solving a local murder and realizes he needs to assimilate into his new world. As he does so, he begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his mission and asking the big life questions like: “Are human beings worth saving?” and “Why do they fold their pizza before eating it?” Tomko, Reynolds, Wetterlund and Fiehler star as the big personalities of small-town Patience, Colorado.
From UCP, in association with Amblin TV and Dark Horse Entertainment, RESIDENT ALIEN was adapted to television by Sheridan. Mike Richardson (Hellboy) and Keith Goldberg (The Legend of Tarzan) of Dark Horse Entertainment (The Umbrella Academy), and Justin Falvey (The Americans) and Darryl Frank (The Americans) of Amblin TV also executive produce. David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) executive produced and directed the pilot.”
