Survivors – BBC TV

The BBC's revival of the classic 1970s post-apocalyptic drama by Terry Nation

Falling Skies renewed for fifth and final season

Alien invasion post-apocalyptic drama Falling Skies has been renewed for a fifth and final series.

Noah Wyle, who’s played the lead role of resistance fighter Tom Mason since the first episode, commented:

We’re still here, and we’ll be back for a fifth and final season, So rarely in television do you get to choose your own ending. […] You get to give the fans a sense of completion to the narrative that you’ve played out. Getting to wrap up these storylines and have these characters reach their natural conclusions… I think it’ll be satisfying for everybody.

Fans of the 2008-2010 series of Survivors can only reflect once again that that series was not afforded a similar opportunity.

In the UK, the current run of series four of Falling Skies concludes on the Fox channel with a double episode on 24 September starting at 22:00.

Production on series five was halted for several days on 15 September when a security guard was killed after being struck by a vehicle on set in the suburb of Burnaby in Vancouver, Canada.
