One of the top rated summer drama is coming! Have you been following this Falling Skies series? If yes then you might want to watch the Season 3. The war against an occupying alien force will enter a volatile new phase. As the new season of  Falling Skies  opens, seven months have passed since the survivors of the 2nd Mass reached Charleston, which has been named capital of the New United States. 

Now elected to public office, Tom (Wyle) has taken a more aggressive approach to the alien occupation than former leader Dr. Manchester.  The government has formed a tenuous alliance with a band of rebel skitters who now paint their faces with a red and yellow stripe before battle in honor of Red Eye, their fallen leader. 

Tom's son Ben (Jessup) serves as the mediator between Mason and the rebel skitters. But the alliance may not be enough to overpower the enemy Espheni, whose forces are now being led by an even more sinister overlord. To complicate matters further, another race of aliens has just entered the battlefield. Charleston also faces dangers from within its own walls. Recent battle losses have convinced Tom and the military that there may be a mole feeding strategic plans to the Espheni. Despite the threats they face, the survivors living in Charleston are doing their best to rebuild their lives.

Cast Biography: Falling Skies Season 3

Noah Wyle as Tom Mason
A bookish history professor from Cambridge, Massachusetts, Tom Mason probably never imagined he would one day be putting his extensive knowledge of military tactics to use in an actual war, much less one being waged against an occupying force from another world. His wife now dead and his son Ben captured by the alien invaders, Tom does everything he can to protect his oldest son, Hal, and his youngest son, Matt. Despite having only an academic understanding of military history, Tom is named second in command of the 2nd Massachusetts, a makeshift regiment assigned to protect several hundred survivors, with their military commander, Weaver. Tom quickly proves himself a strong leader. Most of all, though, Tom is determined to find and rescue his son Ben from captivity, no matter what it takes.

She also takes Lourdes, a young first-year med student, under her wing to help out in the makeshift clinic. But beneath her sturdy exterior, Anne continues to be haunted by the death of her son in ways few can understand.
