Resident Alien Season 2 Part 2 Synopsis
Resident Alien Season 2 Part 2 is scheduled to premiere on 10 August 2022. How about a look at the official synopsis? Sheridan stated, “On his new quest to protect the people of Earth, Harry struggles to hold on to his alien identity as his human emotions grow stronger by the day.
In an adventure that takes Harry and Asta (Sara Tomko) all the way to New York City, Asta brings Harry into the arms of someone he can call family. Back in Patience, Sheriff Mike (Corey Reynolds) and Deputy Liv (Elizabeth Bowen) find themselves closer to unraveling the mystery of Sam Hodges’s murder.”
Sheridan also mentioned, “I think the journey in Season 2 is sort of extending that humanity to people outside of Asta – learning empathy and trying to realize that maybe there are other people in this world who he can maybe care about as well in addition to Asta.
It definitely continues into the second season, it’s going to be a slow burn – we don’t want to do it too quickly where suddenly he’s caring about everybody.”
The Praise For Resident Alien Is High
NBC Universal President of Scripted Content Lisa Katz praised the series after it was renewed for a second season.
Katz explained at that time, “With Resident Alien, everything just came together in perfect harmony. A script by Chris Sheridan that leaped off the page, a lead performance by Alan Tudyk, the whose nuance between comedy and menace was pitch perfect, and a team of producers, cast, and crew who were all striving to do something great.
The appeal of this show transcended the sci-fi genre in a way that enabled us to bring in a broader audience, and as the series continues we hope to encourage more and more fans to discover Harry’s very particular perspective on humans.”
