‘Falling Skies’ Season 4 Sets June Premiere With Nightmarish New Trailer, Plus More TNT Premieres
It seemed early on as if HBO trailers would have a monopoly on the day, but TNT has a few reasons of their own to be excited. ‘Falling Skies‘ season 4 officially set a June premiere, announcing the news in a new trailer from SXSW, while its network also set premieres for the Sean Bean-starring ‘Legends‘ and post-apocalyptic drama ‘The Last Ship‘ with trailers of their own.
It’s hard to get a sense of exactly what we’re seeing from the latest ‘Falling Skies’ season 4 footage, but suffice to say, the June 22 premiere will have a strong focus on Tom and Anne’s now-grown daughter, Alexis, who seems to give her mother nightmares about what truly happened in their time removed from Tom. Elsewhere, there’s plenty of new battles and locales, with a large emphasis on the moon and a mysterious new figure who interacts with Tom’s middle son, Ben.
Along with ‘Falling Skies’ season 4′s expansion to 12 episodes and news of Mira Sorvino’s casting, the TNT summer drama added Treva Etienne, who will play new resistance Dingaan Botha, and ‘Harry Potter’ alum Scarlet Byrne in a mysterious role. So far, we know that new showrunner David Eick plotted multiple separations of the core characters, drawing inspiration from ‘The Empire Strikes Back‘ in telling parallel stories for its cast. Season 3 addition Robert Sean Leonard has been confirmed to return for at least one episode as Dr. Roger Kadar, while Gloria Reuben will not reprise her role of Marina Peralta.
