Resident Alien

Ugh – Harry the alien when he finds Max stowed away on his spaceship.

Will Harry the alien take young Max with him on his return to his home planet? Or will Max be the reason Harry turns around and heads back to Patience, Colorado?

Season 2 of Syfy’s hit series Resident Alien with Alan Tudyk starts filming this summer in Vancouver, with Ladysmith on Vancouver Island playing Patience.

Filming dates: August 3rd to March 25th, 2022.

Not only was Resident Alien the most-watched cable drama in the last year in viewers and #2 in the key 18-49 demo, it’s Syfy’s highest-rated new drama in six years in total viewers and a big time-shifting success too.

Based on the Dark Horse comic, SyFy’s Resident Alien follows Harry, an alien played by Alan Tudyk (Doom Patrol, Rogue One, Firefly) that crash lands on Earth and passes himself off as a small-town human doctor. Arriving with a secret mission to kill all humans, Harry starts off living a simple life… but things get a bit rocky when he’s roped into solving a local murder and realizes he needs to assimilate into his new world. As he does so, he begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his mission and asking the big life questions like: “Are human beings worth saving?” and “Why do they fold their pizza before eating it?”

Showrunner: Chris Sheridan.

Cast: Alan Tudyk, Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds, Alice Wetterlund and Levi Fiehler.

Resident Alien filmed season one in Vancouver and Ladysmith in two tranches — before and after the Covid pandemic abruptly shut down film & TV production worldwide in March 2020.
