Wil Wheaton to Host ‘Falling Skies’ Web Series for Season 2

Falling Skies (TNT) Season 2

Other shows like AMC’s The Walking Dead have done it and now TNT’s Falling Skies has joined in on the fun. TNT is launching a post-episode web show for the drama, which returns on June 17 for its second season.

The web series, called “2nd Watch,” has snagged a pretty awesome host too. Wil Wheaton is set to lead the nine episode series (each episode will be 15 minutes long), featuring goodies such as discussions on the week’s episodes, interviews with cast and crew, behind-the-scenes footage, fan questions and trivia.

2nd Watch launches on June 17 at 11pm ET (following the East Coast premiere of Falling Skies) and can be seen at www.fallingskies.com. So far the guest list for the show looks as impressive as its host. TNT is pulling out all the stops and bringing pretty much the entire cast, including Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Sanguine Carter, Mpho Koaho and Peter Shinkoda. Also on board to answer questions about the series will be show runners Remi Aubuchon and Greg Beeman, consulting producer/writer Mark Verheiden and producer/writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle.

So what do you Falling Skies fans think of the announcement? Are you planning to run straight to your laptops after the episodes air to check them out?
