Colony fans can watch the finale with the assurance the fight will continue!

USA Network renewed the sci-fi series ahead of the Colony Season 2 finale this coming Thursday.

The series not only features aliens and action but addresses the moral dilemmas that arise during times of political dissonance.

The series stars Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies and has been among the top cable dramas on Thursdays.

The third season will again consist of 13 episodes.

"Colony continues to fire on all cylinders creatively, with Carlton, Ryan and our incredible cast and crew striking a deep chord around the themes of humanity, survival and family," said Chris McCumber, president of entertainment networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.

"Along with our partners Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for our heroes next season."

Colony could be compared to some of the greatest shows airing on television. 

It has the subtle nuances of The Americans when it comes to the moral dilemmas the characters must deliberate and the stunning thrills featured on Bates Motel, which isn't surprising given the Cuse connection.

"When Carlton and Ryan first pitched Colony, they described it as 'the Nazi occupation of France, with aliens.' In a world increasingly filled with uncertainty about authoritarian regimes, season three will forge an even deeper connection with our audience,” said Jeff Wachtel, president and chief content officer at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. 

“It’s a quality show that we know will stand the test of time.”

Colony is the first scripted show for Legendary TV, “Legendary Television is so proud, and so appreciative, of the wonderful work that Carlton, Ryan, and our superb cast and crew have done on the first two seasons of this astoundingly timely show,” said the company’s president of scripted television, Lauren Whitney.

This is astounding news not only for fans of Colony, but fans of intelligent television and science fiction.

Going into the finale, Tory Kittles, Peter Jacobson, Amanda Righetti, Jacob Buster, Isabella Crovetti-Cramp, Alex Neustaedter, Adrian Pasdar and Tony Plana co-star in the sci-fi drama, and the series will be moving to Vancouver from LA to shoot Season 3.

Whether that makes a difference on which actors continue with the series remains to be seen.
