We are still more than a month away from the debut of Falling Skies, which premieres June 19th on TNT, but it appears that they may be getting things in line for a second season already. Because the production is out of the normal cycle most if not all of the original writing staff is already tied up, but they are going to get new writers set so that work can begin as soon as TNT makes the go/no-go decision – which may come right after the premiere, if not before – TNT reportedly likes the series a lot, and having seen the first couple episodes I can see why. They definitely do not want the same gap in production time that took place for the original series, though – it will be about 17 months from pickup to debut.
To help get things moving, Remi Aubuchon (Caprica) has been hired as executive producer and show runner.
