USA NETWORK RENEWS CARLTON CUSE AND RYAN CONDAL DRAMA 'COLONY' FOR SEASON 3

Third Season Is Co-Produced by Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA - April 4, 2017 - USA Network today announced a Season 3 pickup of the critically acclaimed science fiction drama COLONY. From Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, COLONY currently airs Thursdays at 10/9c, and will culminate on April 6 in the highly-anticipated season finale. Throughout its season 2 run, COLONY has been the #1 cable scripted series on Thursday nights in P2+.* The 13-episode third season will premiere on USA in 2018.

"COLONY continues to fire on all cylinders creatively, with Carlton, Ryan and our incredible cast and crew striking a deep chord around the themes of humanity, survival and family," said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "Along with our partners Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, we can't wait to see what's in store for our heroes next season."

"When Carlton and Ryan first pitched COLONY, they described it as 'the Nazi occupation of France, with aliens.' In a world increasingly filled with uncertainty about authoritarian regimes, Season 3 will forge an even deeper connection with our audience," said Jeff Wachtel, President, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "It's a quality show that we know will stand the test of time."

"Legendary Television is so proud, and so appreciative, of the wonderful work that Carlton, Ryan, and our superb cast and crew have done on the first two seasons of this astoundingly timely show," said Lauren Whitney, Legendary's President of Scripted Television. "We have excellent partners in UCP and USA, and we look forward to the big plans that Carlton and Ryan have for Season 3 of COLONY."

In Season 2 of COLONY, alien intelligence is still in control of a near-future Los Angeles. With their secrets exposed, Will (Josh Holloway) and Katie Bowman (Sarah Wayne Callies) are united in their battle for survival - against both Collaborators and the Resistance. As the fight for liberty intensifies, the Bowmans are forced to flee from their home. Hunted at every turn, they must take dangerous measures to keep their family together while trying to escape the Los Angeles bloc.

From executive producers Carlton Cuse ("Lost," "Bates Motel," "The Strain") and Ryan Condal ("Rampage," "Hercules"), the drama co-produced by Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions stars Holloway, Callies, Tory Kittles, Peter Jacobson, Amanda Righetti, Jacob Buster, Isabella Crovetti-Cramp, Alex Neustaedter, Adrian Pasdar and Tony Plana.
