Falling Skies Renewed For 3rd Season

TNT has orderd a third season of its alien invasion series Falling Skies from executive producer Steven Spielberg  Falling Skies stars Noah Wyle and is currently airing its second season.  Currently averaging 5.9 million viewers, the series ranks as basic cable’s #1 Summer drama with adults 18-49.

I really enjoyed season 1, and have not been disapointed with season 2 so far.  The 10 episode season does seem short, but much like Showtime and HBO series, it seems to be a way of maintaining a good pacing to the story throughout the entire season with no mid season lull.
