It's here! The first footage of Season 2 of "Resident Alien", the hilarious sci-fi comedy, has arrived.
Although the teaser only lasts 20 seconds, Syfy made the decision to precede it with a humorous recap of the first season as well as a behind-the scenes featurette from season 2. The second season is scheduled to air in early 2022.

Anyone who hasn’t seen it, and if not, you are missing out. "Resident Alien" is about an alien that crashes-lands on Earth and kills a man named Harry Vanderspeigle (played in part by Alan Tudyk), taking his identity.
The alien is a N'a [click] kahla-Oooayy and is on a mission, to kill all human beings on Earth. To avoid being detected, he must blend in with residents of a small Colorado community while searching for the vital components of his spaceship.
Harry begins to doubt his mission as he learns more about the people of the small town. There are many amazing characters to be found, each with their own stories.
Max Hawthorne, a young boy played by Judah Prehn, is different from the rest. He has a rare gene that allows Harry to see him in his natural alien state. He is not believed by anyone.
Harry has difficulty understanding even the most basic human customs. There's also a lot of Tudyk making "alien" faces and gurning. The show starts to find its feet after a few episodes, and Tudyk delivers what is arguably his best and most funny performance. The show's dark humor, which is often adult-themed, becomes very entertaining.
Harry can communicate telepathically to an octopus inside a tank or in a restaurant. He is then stoned for his first time. (Image credit to Syfy.)
Harry has become friends with Max (Gracelyn Adwad Rinke) and is now reluctantly a friend of Max by the end the first season. He has now rebuilt his ship and is being pursued by the US military, and in particular General McCallister. Linda Hamilton plays a wonderful cameo role. Here's a recap of Season 1!
Chris Sheridan ("Family Guy") adapted "Resident Alien", a comic book series by British creators Peter Hogan & Steve Parkhouse published by Dark Horse. Let's pray Syfy sees the potential in this show and doesn’t cancel it too soon, as they did with "The Expanse," Dark Matter," Steve Parkhouse's comic books.
Media Village has the first season of "Resident Alien", available now.
