"Lost" star Josh Holloway returns to play a desperate father trying to keep his family together during a ruthless citywide occupation in the upcoming second season of USA's sci-fi series "Colony," which also stars The Walking Dead's Sarah Wayne Callies.
The series, which hails from "Lost" showrunner Carlton Cuse and screenwriter Ryan Condal (Hercules), takes place in the not-too-distant future, where the city of Los Angeles has been completely walled off -- occupied by a foreign and mysterious army. LA citizens are essentially divided into two camps: those who can comply and those who can not.
Holloway plays a former FBI agent, named Will Bowman. For the safety of his wife (Callies) and children, Bowman agrees to serve as a reluctant informant and collaborator when his community secretly launches a small but solid insurgency. Season 2 will continue to examine Bowman's activities as a double agent while revealing a larger takeover of American cities.
"Colony: Season 2" adds Ally Walker (Longmire, Sons of Anarchy) to the cast. It's currently set to debut on Thursday, January 12 on USA Network.
Set in the very near future, COLONY centers on one family's struggle to survive and bring liberty back to the people of an occupied Los Angeles. Josh Holloway stars as former FBI agent Will Bowman and Sarah Wayne Callies stars as his wife, Katie, in the series which takes place in a dangerous world of divided ideologies. While some choose to collaborate with the occupation and benefit from the new order, others rebel and suffer the consequences. After being separated from their son during the invasion, Will and Katie are willing to do whatever is necessary to be reunited with him. Thus, when the powerful Proxy Snyder (Peter Jacobson) offers Will a chance to get his son back if he will collaborate with the occupational government, Will and Katie find themselves faced with the toughest decision of their lives. They will have to go beyond whatever they thought possible, risking their lives and their relationship to protect their family.
