Harry’s New Love Interest!
Recently, creator Chris Sheridan shared about a new addition in the Resident Alien season 2 cast roaster while talking to TV Line. Alex Borstein is set to debut on the show as Carlyn, who is Kate Hawthorne’s cousin. Carlyn is a “frizzy-haired, right-brained laser-physicist” who is new in town. Apart from having a brilliant job at a tech lag, Carlyn has no love-life whatsoever.
As he visits her family and does some sightseeing, she comes across Harry, who is as socially awkward as Carlyn. Meanwhile, Chris also pointed out that Carlyn has strange mannerisms, similar to Harry. Not just that, they both will be going on an exciting date in Resident Alien season 2.
Resident Alien Season 2: What Will Happen?
In season 2, Harry will struggle with the fact that even though he is an alien, some humanity is hidden under his thick green skin. Sheridan acknowledged that Harry hates those feelings, which are relatively new to him. Hence, the major part of the second season will witness Harry’s struggle with the truth about himself.
Moreover, Harry will step ahead to learn empathy and care for people other than Asta. Finally, Harry and Asta will try to find other aliens from his planet, as they find themselves in New York.
Who Will Return For Next Season?
The lead stars Alan Tudyk as Harry and Sara Tomko as Asta will obviously reprise their roles in the upcoming season. Further, Linda Hamilton and Terry O’Quinn will return for Resident Alien season 2. In addition, the octopus character from the first season will also return. Meanwhile, Alex Borstein will join as Carlyn. The creator also teased that Alex might return in the second half of season 2 after her first date with Harry.
