‘Resident Alien’ showrunner never expected the show’s popularity

Before the grand premiere of Resident Alien Season 2 Part 2, fans got to ask the showrunner and Alice Wetterlund a few questions that have been plaguing their minds. On Reddit, a fan asked Sheridan if he has plans for how the series will end. Fans will be more than happy with his answer.

“There is no plan per se. I think the run of a show depends 100% on how the show lays out. I had a lot of plans in the beginning that have since changed because the show has taken us in a direction we never expected, in a good way. Character relationships sometimes work even better than expected, so you lean into that, storylines may work better or worse than you expected,” said Sheridan.

The showrunner explains they still have a lot of work to do, but “I think every good series will tell you when it’s time to go. So, sorry there’s no more definitive answer, but I promise we won’t overstay our welcome. I don’t want to be a show that stays on the air past the point that it has something to say. All that said, we have a lot to say so I think it’ll be a while.”

What’s next for Asta and Harry for the rest of the second season?

Fans are in for a good rest of the season as the first half of Resident Alien Season 2 ended on a cliffhanger. More than a few people are hunting Harry. He learns from Goliath that there is another alien race on earth. To add more drama, Galvin/Powell group are after the real Harry and almost kill him. But Asta comes to his rescue and kills the assailant.

Fans can look forward to a jam-packed season as Sheridan explains, “I love so many of the upcoming 8 episodes. 9 and 10 are sort of thematically linked, and are a great way to start the season. They all have great stuff in them to be honest, mostly probably I’m excited for people to see 16 because the season, in my opinion, ends really strong and I can’t wait for people to see it.”
