June 18, 2024 - NBCUniversal has renewed "Resident Alien" for season four and will be moving the series to USA Network from SYFY.

Season three averaged 3.3 million total viewers (+4% vs. S2) and 1 million in the 18-49 demo (+36% vs. S2) across all platforms through 35 days.

Based on the Dark Horse comics, "Resident Alien" follows a crash-landed alien named Harry whose secret mission is to kill all humans.

In addition, Harry struggled to balance business and his personal life when he fell in love for the first time.

The series stars Alan Tudyk, Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds, Alice Wetterlund, Levi Fiehler, Elizabeth Bowen and Judah Prehn.

"Resident Alien" was adapted to television by executive producer Chris Sheridan, who has served as showrunner since the launch of the series and remains at the helm for the upcoming fourth season. Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg of Dark Horse Entertainment, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank of Amblin TV, Robert Duncan McNeill and Nastaran Dibai also executive produce.

The series is produced UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Amblin TV and Dark Horse Entertainment.
