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

Status: (Updated 3/24/17) This show’s numbers have been down during its second season, but it it doing okay for a cable series these days and has been seeing decent gains from delayed viewing (more important to the cable channels than the broadcast nets). I believe it has a good chance of getting a third season nod, but a Call to Action from fans as it wraps up its second season (finale on April 6th) could help its cause.

Note: There is currently and active campaign to convince USA to renew this series for a third season. More on that at this link and you can sign the online petition here.
