“Resident Alien ss 2”: release date, announcement
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the season 1 has been postponed from summer 2020 to January 2021. The fact that the creators of the fantastic comedy extended the project for season 2 became known in March 2021. According to official sources, new episodes of the TV series “Resident Alien” will be released starting January 26, 2022.
Since he had to adapt to human life, the alien killed the first person he came across, which turned out to be Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle, who lived near Colorado. Changing his own appearance to a human, the new “Harry” continued to exist in solitude. But soon the local cops came to visit him.
After an unsuccessful acquaintance, Vanderspeigle is asked to drive with the police to the scene. The reason was the death of a city doctor, whose throat was cut with a scalpel. After examining the corpse, Harry comes to a disappointing conclusion — the man committed suicide. A former medical assistant named Asta disagrees with Harry’s opinion.
She asks Vanderspeigle to take a closer look at the corpse and consider how the doctor died. It took the alien several days to realize that in reality the doctor had been poisoned. The compressed artery caused the man to open it with a scalpel, but could not, and died of blood loss.
Until the case with the deceased is solved, Harry has to take patients and along the way he gets to know Asta more and more. On the day the spaceship landed on Earth, the girl decided to part ways with her longtime boyfriend. She was tired of constant scandals, beatings and endless control from the guy. Meeting Harry was a turning point for her.
It all started when Vanderspeigle helped her pick up the remains of her ex-friend’s house. Seeing that the guy allows himself a lot of rudeness, Harry could not restrain himself and used force, breaking down the door of the house and beating the guy. Feelings arose between Asta and the alien. The girl does not yet know that the humanoid was sent to Earth to deal with the destruction of people.
And then another problem came in time — Harry must replace the murdered doctor. And his first patient turns out to be a boy who is able to see the real face of an alien. Well, how can he continue to hide from people in order to fulfill his mission?..
Actors and their roles
- Harry — an alien posing as another person; on the day of his fall to Earth, he entered the doctor’s house, threw him into the icy river and adopted his appearance; lived alone for 4 months, watched various programs on TV, thanks to which he learned human behavior, and later became a local doctor — Alan Tudyk.
- Asta — a Hispanic woman who barely escaped a toxic relationship in which she was humiliated; made friends with Harry, but still cannot fully understand him; can affect the alien, although she does not know who he really is, works with him as an assistant — Sara Tomko.
- Mike Thompson — a local sheriff, likes to feel important, but people don’t respect him the way he wants; asks everyone to call him a cool nickname, for which people constantly make fun of Mike; works with a partner named D’arcy, loves rap — Corey Reynolds.
- The TV show has been broadcast on Syfy since January 27, 2021. Two months after the release of the series, it was reported that Universal Content Productions, together with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV, would start filming season 2. All the actors agreed to star in the sequel.
- Sara Tomko had a choice: take on the role of D’arcy, Mike’s partner, or lose 12 kilograms and get a more significant character — Asta. She gave preference to the main character, and director David Dobkin insistently demanded that she lose weight. After a month and a half, the girl reached the desired size and began to work.
- During the pandemic, all the actors and the rest of the crew received a salary and did not need to go to work. For about six months, all working moments were suspended, only rare conversations via video communication gave them the opportunity to communicate with each other. Few of the American actors could boast of gatherings at home during the period of self-isolation.
- Alan Tudyk wasn’t the only contender for the lead role. The actor was approved during the casting days. Tudik seemed so fantastic and unrealistic to the casting director that he sent Alan to the director to finally approve the candidacy.
