Resident Alien is a United States comedy series that follows the novel of the identical name by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse, that aired on 27th January 2021 on Syfy. The drama delivers a story of an Alien who visits earth in order to end human existence. He pretends himself to be Dr. Harry Vanderspiegel after killing the physician and discovers himself carefully involved in the regional community of Patience, Colorado.
The first season of the thriller finished on an unsatisfactory note which somewhere increases the possibilities of the arrival of Resident Alien Season 2. The beginning season of the drama has got enough streaming views as well great views from the audience. It has succeeded in getting excellent 8.4/10 stars on the IMDb and stunning 93% critics ratings on Rotten Tomatoes.
We believe that these stats are sufficient for the renewal of any series or movie. So, let’s check what showrunners have decided about the second installment of drama –
Has Syfy Announced Resident Alien Season 2 Release Date?
The first season of the series concluded on 31st March 2021, but Syfy didn’t wait till the final episode of the series. The network gave green light to Resident Alien season 2 before 31st March. Syfy announced the renewal of the second edition on 17th March, it was the day when the 8th episode of the first season was released in the United States. While discussing with TV insider, co-creator Chris Sheridan mentioned that season 1 would have ended six or seven months before if there was no COVID-19.
Now, if we talk about Resident Alien Season 2 release date no official details have arrived yet. The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t gone yet, in fact, the second wave of the deadly virus has come in several countries. In such a situation it’s not going to be easy for showrunners to film season 2. They will have to adopt strictly all safety measures to keep them safe while shooting for next season.
However, some nations have also succeeded in making vaccines of the virus and have started the process of vaccination. So, if we consider this factor then Resident Allien season 2 should not take a long time to arrive. Trusted sources like Screenrant are claiming that the chances of the arrival of the second installment by the end of 2021 are looking less. Syfy will try to launch season 2 in the winter i.e. in the first quarter of 2022.
How Will Resident Alien Season 2 Plot Be?
Syfy generally creates several alterations to the Resident Aliens novels which work as the base material, the second season is expected to follow the book’s entire storyline. Season 2 will start from where the first season ended. In the first season, we got to know a surprising fact where Dr. Vanderspeigle killed Dr. Sam Hodges which signifies that the sheriff captured the incorrect guy.
Now, the Resident Alien season 2 episodes will revolve around this enigma and Harry’s government will try to decode this mystery. The introductory season also finished on a suspenseful note that should be solved in season 2 – In the climax of the first season, Harry now no longer wants to end human existence on Earth as he has developed a good bond with his new companions Asta Twelvetrees and 9-year-old Max Hawthorne.
In the final moments, the alien eventually reconnected with his ship and leave the earth, going to his homeland. So, it seems that the dispute between Harry and Asta is finished, but there is a question – how their relationship will move ahead and whether D’Arcy will explore the reality or not. Ultimately, Sherrif Mike Thompson and Deputy Liv Baker are progressing fastly to decode the suspense of the foot in the lake indicating more undesirable awareness will develop in Harry’s path in the second season.
Who Will Be Part Of Resident Alien Season 2 Cast?
Syfy hasn’t shared any details about the cast of the next season. The network will reveal the cast in the upcoming months.

Alan Tudyk has played the main character of Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle and Sara Tomko has portrayed the character of Asta Twelvetrees. Both of them have been a crucial part of the series.
