Hey, are you watching Colony? The USA Network sci-fi series is heading into its third season. It’s an alien invasion show but not about creatures attacking humans.

Will (Josh Holloway) and Katie Bowman (Sarah Wayne Callies) were leaders of the resistance, often undercover working security for Raps. At the end of season two, they escaped the L.A. block with their family, and former collaborator Snyder (Peter Jacobson) tagging along.
