Resident Alien Storyline
The show follows the life of an alien who lands on Earth with the sole mission to destroy all those with malicious intent within their hearts. The alien kills Dr. Harry, a corrupt doctor and part of a crime syndicate, and takes over his body and identity. Only a young 9-year-old boy can see his proper alien form. The rest of the world, however, is oblivious to it. The alien (Harry) starts to doubt his mission as he realizes that there is much more to people’s personalities than what is shown on the exterior.
He starts to develop friendship bonds with them and even learns English throughout his stay. We see Harry struggle with adapting to human emotions and social cues, which amalgamates into a series of comedic events.
Furthermore, The mid-season finale of the second season left its fans with many unanswered questions. The second half of the sophomore season will release in 2022. Neither the cast nor crew of the show has made any announcements regarding what to expect in the third season. No synopsis is available for the show either, although we expect one to release sometime after the 2nd season is completed.
There is no update as of yet regarding the trailer for the Resident Alien Season 3. As the 3rd season is predicted to drop sometime in March of next year, we expect a trailer to release about a month before the 3rd installment.
