New episodes are available to stream on CTV.ca and the CTV app.
Based on the Dark Horse comic of the same name, RESIDENT ALIEN follows Harry as he arrives on earth with a secret mission to kill all humans. While Harry starts off living a simple life, things get a bit rocky when he’s roped into solving a local murder and realizes he needs to assimilate into his new world. As he does so, Harry begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his mission, and ask the big life questions like: “Are human beings worth saving?” and “Why do they fold their pizza before eating it?”
From UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, RESIDENT ALIEN also stars Sara Tomko (Once Upon A Time), Corey Reynolds (The Closer), Alice Wetterlund (Silicon Valley), and Levi Fiehler (MARS) as the big personalities of small-town Patience, Colorado. Linda Hamilton (Terminator) appears in a recurring role as General McCallister, a high-ranking covert military operative seeking to find the existence of alien life on Earth. Mandell Maughan (BAJILLION DOLLAR PROPERTIE$) and Alex Barima (RIVERDALE) recur as agents dispatched by McCallister.
