This Week in Sci Fi TV: Renewals for Colony and Falling Water and 7 More Things to Know

USA confirmed this week that sophomore series Colony will be returning for a third season. That show’s linear ratings have been down a bit in its second year, but I have been confident that it would get the renewal nod because it is still performing well for a cable series and it has been posting good delayed viewing gains (more important to the cable channels than the broadcast nets). It has also been the most-watched scripted cable show on Thursday nights based on total viewers throughout its first two years. Plus, Colony has a very loyal fanbase that has been active on the social nets lately lobbying USA to renew it with the hashtag campaign. The third season will be thirteen episodes and will likely air in early 2018.
