Who would have thought that an alien invasion would be funny instead of scary? Resident Alien on SYFY has been a real hit for the network. Its main character, Harry (Alan Tudyk), makes us laugh out loud and also has a lot of heart.
Harry is an alien who got stuck on Earth and has to change into a human to fit in with the people of the small town of Patience, Colorado.
Resident Alien has been so popular that SYFY renewed it for a third season before the second half of season 2 even started.
Resident Alien About
Resident Alien is based on a comic book series with the same name. It tells the story of an alien whose job is to kill every living thing on Earth. Before he can finish his mission, his ship crashes in Patience, Colorado, and he has to find the lost parts of his ship so he can destroy the earth and go home.

To stay hidden, he takes the form of a local man, Dr. Harry Vanderspiegle (Tudyk), and gets caught up in a murder investigation of the town doctor. The show follows Harry’s adventures as he searches for pieces of his lost ship, learns about the kindness and humanity of humans, and plots revenge on his archenemy, a young boy named Max (Judah Prehn) who can see through his human cloaking device.
Where is Resident Alien Filmed?
Resident Alien makes movies in Vancouver, Canada, and the areas around it.
Has Season 3 of Resident Alien Begun Filming?
According to sources, Season 3 is being planned and written by the show’s creator, Chris Sheridan. He hopes that work will start at the beginning of 2023.
In November 2022, the number of episodes in Season 3 was cut from 12 to 8. No one said why the third season was cut short. Sheridan had said before that it wouldn’t be broken up into two parts like season 2.
Resident Alien Season 3 Premiere
Resident Alien season 3 should start sometime between the middle and end of 2023, but no date has been set.
Resident Alien Season 1 Recap
The first season of Resident Alien explains how and why Harry comes to Earth. Harry’s ship is hit by lightning while he is trying to destroy the earth and everyone on it. This causes him to crash land on Earth, where parts of his ship are scattered around where he landed.
He kills Dr. Harry Vanderspiegle and takes his identity so he won’t be found while he looks for the missing parts of his ship. He lives a quiet, unremarkable life, watching Law & Order reruns to learn how to act and talk like a human until the local sheriff (Corey Reynolds) asks him to help with the murder investigation and autopsy of the town doctor.
He agrees to help because he’s interested, but that means he has to deal with other people. As he fills in as the town’s doctor, he learns more about how people act and what makes them tick. He meets Max (Prehn), a young boy who is the only one who can see through his human mask. Max and he fight right away, but they end up becoming friends.
As Harry searches for the missing parts of his ship and the device that will destroy the earth, he is being hunted by a bad military covert operation. Harry decides not to destroy the earth, so he fixes his ship and heads home. On the way, he finds a stowaway.
Resident Alien Season 2 Recap
Harry’s ship was damaged when he went back to Earth to get a stowaway named Max. Harry temporarily lost his memory during this time.
When Sheriff Mike and Deputy Liv (Elizabeth Bowen) found out what Harry looked like, he erased their memories of that day. Liv starts to wonder about a few things because of the memory gap. This leads her to look into the missing day.
Harry tries to get close to Kate’s (Meredith Garretson) cousin Carlyn (Alex Borstein) so he can use her keycard to get into her lab and steal parts for his radio so he can call home. Later, he and Asta (Sara Tomko) go on a hike to try to send a message to his home planet, but a bunch of people who want to join them gets in the way.
General McCallister (Linda Hamilton) keeps questioning Dr. Ethan Stone (Michael Cassidy), the doctor they thought was an alien but turned out to be a human.
Harry finds out, much to his surprise, that he has a daughter who comes to Patience after rebelling against her mom and the real Harry’s ex-wife.
We had to say goodbye to 42, Harry’s cousin who was a cephalopod and was voiced by Nathan Fillion. It was sad, but we said goodbye in the most hilarious Resident Alien way: Harry tried to save his cousin by giving him mouth-to-mouth in front of Sahar (Gracelyn Awad Rinke) and her confused dog.
Harry and Asta went to New York to look for an alien relative that Harry might have. They found an alien named Goliath (played by David Bianchi) who was an artist like Banksy. When they finally found Goliath, he was already dead, but he did leave Harry a small gift.
Their adventure in New York ended with Agent Casper (Mandell Maughan) dead, goons from the mysterious Galvan/Powell Group hot on their trail who knew the real Harry and Dr. Hodges (Jan Bos), and an egg that was a mix of an alien and a human.
When they get home, they have to deal with well-meaning friends and family, the Galvan/Powell goons, and the hatching of the alien hybrid egg.
Asta and Harry try to keep the partygoers in the cabin while Harry looks for Goliath’s child, who has escaped. He finally finds him when Baby Harry attaches himself to Harry and tells him that Goliath sent him a message that other aliens are coming to Earth to kill everyone. When the goon from Galvan/Powell shoots at Harry, the baby runs away quickly, and Asta has to kill him to save Harry’s life.
In the second half, Asta had to deal with the effects of what she had done while other people in town dealt with their problems.
The first few episodes of the second half of the season were mostly about the murder investigation. Mayor Ben tried to move the investigation to the nearby rival town of Jessup. The investigation also brought in Jessup Detective Lena Torres, who might be a good match for Sheriff Mike (Nicola Correia-Damude).
D’Arcy decided to start skiing again, but old injuries forced her to take painkillers, which she became addicted to. When she saw that she was going downhill, she went to Asta for help.
Mayor Ben tried to get everyone in Patience to agree that the town needed a resort, but when Kate left the resort bandwagon, he realized he was wrong and gave up on the idea, which upset Sheriff Mike.
We found out that Goliath was Harry from the future, and the message he sent to Baby Harry was a warning about what went wrong in Harry’s timeline and what he could do to fix it.
Liv asked Alien Tracker Peter for help. When he got to Patience, not only did it surprise Liv, but it also surprised Asta and Harry. Peter and Harry were once enemies, but they finally worked together to break into the government bunker where Baby Harry and Peter’s son were being held. Even though the Alien Tracker died trying to save his son, Harry took Robert in as his son.
