Producers released a trailer for the new season of "Falling Skies" on Monday at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
The Los Angeles Times reported last July that "Falling Skies"
continued to increase in viewership, averaging 5.8 million viewers per episode, up from 5.6 million viewers per episode in 2012. The series was the top cable drama of the summer for adults in the 18 to 49 age range and in the 25 to 54 age range.
TNT's new action show, "The Last Ship," with executive producer Michael Bay, will air before "Falling Skies." "The Last Ship" stars former "Grey's Anatomy" star Eric Dane and Rhonda Mitra. It is about a Navy ship that is trying to save humanity.
"Homeland" executive producers Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary, along with "Fringe" co-executive producer David Wilcox, joined forces for TNT's new series, "Legends," Variety reported. "Legends" stars "Game of Thrones'" Sean Beam, who plays an FBI undercover agent who is losing his grip on reality.
TNT will air new episodes of "Franklin & Bash," "Major Crimes," "Perception," "Rizzoli & Isles" and "Dallas."
Former "Private Practice" star Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson will star in the new Steven Bochcho series "Murder in the First" on TNT.
"'Murder in the First' sets up an engrossing, season-long mystery that's certain to appeal to TNT fans," Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and TCM, said.
