The sci-fi and comedy series, ‘Resident Alien’ has been officially renewed for a third season at SYFY. The first part of the second season which premiered in January this year was again a big hit on the cable network, just like the first season.

The sci-fi comedy series ranks among the top 15 most-watched cable series and top 5 cable dramas this year, with 2.3 million viewers in L+7. It has over 11 million viewers throughout all airings.

Based on the comic book of the same name by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse, 'Resident Alien' follows an alien who crash-lands on Earth, kills, and takes the identity of a pathology physician on vacation. He is asked to do an autopsy on the town's doctor, who died in unusual circumstances. He struggles with the moral dilemma of his undercover mission while simultaneously coping with a 9-year-old boy who suspects him of being an alien.

Asta uses one of Harry's firearms to shoot the man.
