Alan Tudyk and showrunner Chris Sheridan tell us what to expect for season 3
Diving into the world of Resident Alien with one of my personal favorite actors of all time, Alan Tudyk, and showrunner Chris Sheridan feels like hitching a ride on a UFO - it's a wild, hilarious, and heart-tugging journey.
Tudyk, who plays our favorite alien-in-disguise, Harry, gives us the lowdown on what's shaking up his character's world this season. "He's fighting for the humans and for his human self," he spills, showing us a side of Harry we've never seen before. Imagine that - our alien buddy, once all about observing humans from a distance, now throwing punches (metaphorically, of course) to save the day. And oh, the baby-naming saga! Tudyk cracks us up with, "He sent away his son Bridget... named because he bridges the worlds." Classic Harry, trying to be deep but ending up somewhere in the shallow end of the pool.
Chris Sheridan, the mastermind behind the madness, paints season 3 with some pretty big brushes. "One of the big themes is that the factors that affect us as a child shape us," he says, promising a deep dive into the past. It's not just Harry getting all introspective; the whole gang in Patience is set to tackle the ghosts from their lunchboxes. Sheridan's peek behind the curtain suggests we're in for a treat, where our beloved characters look in the mirror and ask themselves, "Who am I?"
And when it comes to mixing giggles with the heavy stuff, Tudyk and Sheridan are like the cosmic chefs of drama and comedy. Tudyk shares a gem about Harry's love life, "He's like a teenager falling in love." Imagine this alien dude, who's more at home with petri dishes than candlelit dinners, trying to woo the love of his life.
Then Sheridan chimes in about keeping the show's vibe just right with its humor and deep moments combined, "It's a challenge... but if you can balance both of them, I think you get a great result." It's clear these guys are cooking up a season that's going to be a buffet of emotions - all served with a side of extraterrestrial awkwardness.
What makes Resident Alien such a beloved cosmic concoction isn't just the outlandish premise of an alien trying to fit in among humans. It's the show's uncanny ability to mirror our own world's oddities, making us laugh at the absurdity of life, whether terrestrial or extraterrestrial. Season 3 promises to dial up the drama, deepen the laughs, and perhaps answer the age-old question: Can an alien in disguise teach us what it means to be human?
With the cast and crew's exciting teasers, Resident Alien season 3 is shaping up to be a galactic event not to be missed. It's going to be a journey filled with laughter, tears, and the occasional existential crisis - standard fare for a day in Patience, Colorado.
