When will ‘Resident Alien’ Season 3 premiere?

After the second season’s finale, Resident Alien Season 3 will be packed with riveting and fun storylines. But the question is, how long will fans have to wait for the third season? Back in July, TVLine reported the series was renewed for a third season.

According to Parade, showrunner Chris Sheridan is working on the storylines and writing Resident Alien Season 3. Unlike the second season, Resident Alien Season 3 will have 12 episodes but not be divided into parts. But there is no set premiere date yet for the third season.

Alan Tudyk spoke with ScreenRant and revealed that the cast would be reuniting in Canada and filming in a few months. “Yeah, we still have a little time. It’ll be January, but it’s coming up,” said Tudyk. As for now, there is no definite end to the SyFy series as Sheridan has no set plans for a final season and sees where the storyline takes him.
