  • Season 2



A twisted and comedic fish-out-of-water story that follows a crash-landed alien named Dr. Harry (Alan Tudyk) who, after taking on the identity of a small-town Colorado doctor, slowly begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his secret mission of destruction on Earth. This leads him to ponder the question: “Are human beings actually worth saving instead of obliterating?”

Resident Alien is developed for SYFY by writer-showrunner Chris Sheridan, from the Dark Horse comic book. Joining Tudyk in the cast are Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds and Alice Wetterlund.

Harry and the residents of Patience, Colorado, will all return in a second season on January 26, 2022.

Forced to return to Earth to return a pesky stowaway, the misadventures of Harry Vanderspeigle in Patience, Colorado continues in Season Two of Resident Alien, coming to SYFY on January 26, 2022.

Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) will be joining series regulars Alan Tudyk, Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds, Alice Wetterlund and Elizabeth Bowen this year, a reunion with Resident Alien executive producer Chris Sheridan from their collaboration on Fox's Family Guy.
