UPDATE: Resident Alien Season 2 will premiere on SYFY on January 6, with a mid-season finale on March 16. The second half of Season 2 will air in summer 2022.
SYFY’s Resident Alien, based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name, was a hit with viewers when it premiered in January, 2021. The show centers around an alien who has unwillingly had to take up residence on Earth, assuming the identity of Dr. Harry Vanderspielgel (played by Alan Tudyk). As ‘Harry’ integrates with the people of the town of Patience, Colorado, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to humans, and ultimately becomes more sympathetic to them. Not surprisingly, the show was renewed for a second season, and has announced that new episodes will begin airing in ‘early 2022’.
At the end of Season 1, Harry was set to return to his own planet when he realized that Max had stowed away on his spaceship. Based on the Season 2 sneak peek released by SYFY, it appears that Harry will return back to Earth, and the town of Patience, once more.
