In conversation with ScreenRant, Alan Tudyk confirmed filming on the third season of Resident Alien begins this January in Vancouver.
Yeah, we still have a little time. It’ll be January, but it’s coming up. Right when it gets cold in Vancouver and the rain is the thickest, is the heaviest and the most unceasing. But I’ll be good. Vancouver is just a beautiful place I love, you kind of get used to the rain in a way that I never thought was possible. You just kind of stopped noticing, that’s great.
Meanwhile, showrunner Martin Gero confirmed to Collider he’s still hoping Scott Bakula will agree to return for his Quantum Leap reboot.
I will respectfully always ask him to do the show. I have a very, very good idea that Deborah (Pratt) knows about and that Don (Bellisario) knows about. I think it could be really exciting. But I also completely respect his wishes. He knows our enthusiasm for him. He knows our enthusiasm, our love, and our reverence for the old show. It’s a no right now. It would be pretty amazing to have him back, but I don’t know what that timeline looks like, or even if it’s possible. I wanna be able to call his managers just enough where they feel like I want him on the show, but not enough where they’re like, ‘This is a possible stalker situation. We need to alert the authorities.’ We would all love for that to happen, but we completely honor and respect his wishes.
