The aliens are still in control… but mankind is ready to fight back.

USA Network’s post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama Colony will return for a second season on Thursday, Jan. 12 at 10/9c, the network announced Tuesday. And in the just-released trailer below, the human-led resistance to the alien occupation is picking up steam.

Opening with a chilling shot of that massive wall dividing the city of Los Angeles, the trailer shows Will (Josh Holloway) vowing to his wife Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) that they’ll have each other’s backs: “We stay together. That’s how we survive.” But Will, who was forced to work for the alien-led Redhats last season, is considering joining the resistance movement, asking: “Why isn’t this bloc at war? Why aren’t people fighting for their lives?”

The gunfire and explosions we see next tell us that the humans are indeed fighting for their lives this season… but the aliens might have something to say about that. At the end of the trailer, as we spy the shadow of an alien-like creature in the distance, we’re told: “It’s only the beginning.”

Press PLAY on the video below to watch the new Colony trailer, then hit the comments and share your thoughts on Season 2.
