Sci-fi fans’ sweetener
two of the popular sci-fi series Falling Skies will return to Australian screens within days of its premiere in the United States. The first season of the Steven Spielberg-produced show was 2011’s No.1 subscription drama here and in the US. Noah Wyle (pictured) stars as a resistance leader in the post-apocalyptic drama, set in a world devastated by an alien invasion. The cast includes Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton and Drew Roy. The new series, premiering on pay TV station Fox8 next month, opens with survivors having more idea of what the alien invaders want with a group of captured teens. Thursdays from June 21, 8.30pm, Fox8.
