Description: Set in the very near future, COLONY centers on one family’s struggle to survive and bring liberty back to the people of an occupied Los Angeles. SAG winner Josh Holloway (“Lost”) stars as former FBI agent Will Bowman and Satellite Award winner Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”) stars as his wife, Katie, in the series which takes place in a dangerous world of divided ideologies. While some choose to collaborate with the occupation and benefit from the new order, others rebel and suffer the consequences. After being separated from their son during the invasion, Will and Katie are willing to do whatever is necessary to be reunited with him. Thus, when the powerful Proxy Snyder (Peter Jacobson, “House”) offers Will a chance to get his son back if he will collaborate with the occupational government, Will and Katie find themselves faced with the toughest decision of their lives. They will have to go beyond whatever they thought possible, risking their lives and their relationship to protect their family. USAnetwork.com

Season End Status: This show’s numbers were down in its second season, but we are seeing that across the board with the cable channels and broadcast nets these days. Throughout the season, I figured that its chances for renewal were good, and USA did just that before its season finale. The show also has a very loyal and vocal fanbase that lobbied hard on the social networks for the renewal, and I believe that definitely helped. At this point, they should continue to stay active to bring more attention to the show and help assure that it sticks around through a fourth season and beyond.
