"'Colony' continues to fire on all cylinders creatively, with Carlton, Ryan and our incredible cast and crew striking a deep chord around the themes of humanity, survival and family," Chris McCumber, president of entertainment networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, said in a statement Tuesday.
"Along with our partners Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, we can't wait to see what's in store for our heroes next season."
"When Carlton and Ryan first pitched 'Colony,' they described it as 'the Nazi occupation of France, with aliens.' In a world increasingly filled with uncertainty about authoritarian regimes, Season 3 will forge an even deeper connection with our audience," added Jeff Wachtel, president and chief content officer for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.
"It's a quality show that we know will stand the test of time."
