The idea is to expose the show to a broader audience, as USA Network tends to have a bit more reach than Syfy. Resident Alien has also recently gotten an awareness boost from Netflix picking up its first two seasons earlier this year.

Resident Alien stars Tudyk as crash-landed alien named Harry who tries to blend in with humans in a small Colorado town while hiding his secret mission to destroy humanity. The most recent, third season averaged 3.3 million total viewers across all platforms.

The move comes on the heels of USA reentering the scripted originals space by picking up a straight-to-series order for a reboot of the John Grisham legal drama The Rainmakerfrom producers Lionsgate TV and Blumhouse TV.

Resident Alien also stars Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds, Alice Wetterlund, Levi Fiehler, Elizabeth Bowen, Judah Prehn and Meredith Garretson. The show was adapted from the Dark Horse comic series by executive producer Chris Sheridan, who has served as showrunner since the launch of the show and remains at the helm for the upcoming fourth season. Resident Alien is produced UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Amblin TV and Dark Horse Entertainment.
