A Message from Colin Cunningham

An open letter to fans of FALLING SKIES.

Hope you’ve enjoyed Season 2, my friends.

Fortunately, we’ve begun the process of shooting Season 3! And from all involved, we just wanted to thank you for taking the ride with us.

TNT has taken a big chance on this show. And they’ve invested a lot of time and money to make it happen. People are often critical of networks and corporations in general, but I wanted to remind you that these networks are made up of ‘people’. Very talented, hard working people that have dreams and goals just like the rest of us. And it takes a lot of guts to put your money where your mouth is. FALLING SKIES could have been very big and costly ‘bust’. But thanks to you, it didn’t work out that way.

Instead, we’re just warming up.

From the writers that start with nothing but a blank page, to the producers whose job it is to turn those pages into a tangible reality… there’s a lot that goes into this little post-apocalyptic tale. It truly is a manifestation of thought. And it’s not an easy birth. It takes a lot of guts, sweat and a bit of luck to boot.

But at the end of the day, it all comes down to you. There are a lot of options out there and we really appreciate your tuning in.

So, on behalf of myself and of the rest of the cast, we wanted to say, “Thanks for watching.” We’ll continue to work hard and to keep the bar as high as we can.

Best to you all.
