Season 3 is set to air on June 9th on TNT with a 2 hour premiere. 5 new videos have surfaced from several cast members giving us tiny little hints about season 3 and telling how just how crazy the new season will be. Along with that we recently did an in-depth look at footage released for season 3 that showed us some ideas of what we can expect in season 3.
At MCM Comic Con, Connor Jessup spilled that the new season would start 7 months after season 2 and that so far the new aliens were helping them but that it wouldn’t last forever. Season 2 brought with it a host of new questions about what exactly the overlords were doing with humanities children. We learned at the start of season 2 that Ben, although no longer harnessed, was still transforming. Ben reveals his back to Tom to show him what has become of him so far. Ben also found himself with super human strength, agility and a temper. Ben was also still under the influence of the skitters, able to communicate with one called Red Eye, the leader of a rebellion against the overlords. At the end of season 2, Ben helped lead the skitters and the 2nd mass to a victory in destroying an alien weapon pointed at the sky. But wait, why was it pointed at the sky? Ben says “it wasnt meant for humans”. This war goes far beyond the survival of humans on earth. In fact, this may not be about humanity at all.
Unanswered Questions – New Aliens
First it was the overlords, then the bugs and now a new alien race decends on the 2nd mass and all of Charleston. Are they friend or foe? Its clear that the weapon was pointed up at the sky to prevent them from landing, but what we dont know is where these aliens stand when it comes to the overlords and humans. Ben seemed to already be aware of this expanded war, which he made clear on the roof of the hospital when talking to Matt and again when telling Tom the weapon wasnt meant for humans. Will Ben be able to reveal more to the 2nd mass? Can he communicate with this new alien race? What role do the skitters place in relation to our new alien?
