Tv Season Info

The post-apocalyptic sci-fi series' fourth season kicks off with the Masons and the 2nd Mass under brutal attack by a menacing creation and a new war machine of the Espheni, the alien race that has invaded Earth. Members of the 2nd Mass are separated, with Tom (Noah Wyle) and others sent to an Espheni ghetto, prompting Anne (Moon Bloodgood) and various survivors to launch a mission to find, rescue and reunite the group. Meanwhile, Lexi (Scarlett Byrne) has grown from a girl to a young woman with ever-expanding and potentially dangerous powers. In other developments, Tom and the 2nd Mass work with the Volm, an alien species and enemy of the Espheni, to prevent an invasion, leading to an all-out battle. Later, the heroic group embarks on a perilous quest to destroy the all-powerful Espheni power core.

Critic Reviews for Falling Skies: Season 4

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

The groups each are facing very different realities and aspects of this changed war. It's a sharp contrast to the previous seasons of Falling Skies, which makes it all the more intriguing.

Not as goofy as I feared, but boy, did it leave much to be desired.

Faced a few stumbles in its path, not only in transitioning to showrunner David Eick, but also revamping a few aspects of the mythology while crafting at least four separate story arcs for the core cast.

A season filled with exciting action and strange inconsistencies.

I'm still so excited for this season that it's stupid.

With all the alien developments that have occurred, it still seems like there [are] plenty of other exciting (possibly ridiculous) concepts to come. Here is to keeping Falling Skies eyes on the prize.

Audience Reviews for Falling Skies: Season 4


A pale shadow of itself, Falling Skies strays far off course in its fourth season. Throwing out most of the events of the last two seasons, the show reboots itself and focuses on the Star Child, Lexi, and her struggle to find her humanity. The first few episodes are universally terrible, with story arcs following Matt Mason being held at a Nazi Youth-like brainwashing camp and Lexi leading a Beatnik hippie peace commune. But what's worse are the character re-writes, with Anne as a gun toting military leader and Ben and Hal forced into a love triangle with Maggie. Still, among all this garbage there are some exciting battle scenes and the special effects are impressively done. Yet overall Season 4 of Falling Skies isn't really worth watching, and insults the long term viewer.
