TNT has ordered a fourth season of Falling Skies , the Steven Spielberg exec-produced alien invasion series starring Noah Wyle.
Falling Skies season three has been averaging 5.8 million viewers in the States (in total consolidated viewers) and is TNT’s top-rated original drama. TNT plans to launch the 10-episode fourth season in summer 2014.
Don’t expect series three to end on a massive cliffhanger, though. Wyle recently told TVLine , “As opposed to some of the other seasons where we’ve ended on a cliffhanger, this [finale] has more of a sense of closure, and completion.”
Maybe the producers weren’t expecting a fourth season pick up. Or maybe there could be big changes on the way? The end of one major arc and the start of another?
