People of Earth is about a support group for alien abductees. It centers on skeptical journalist Ozzie Graham, who investigates a support group to write about the members' supposed alien encounters. The more he digs into their oddball claims, the more he realizes there is truth in their stories and possibly even signs that point to his own alien abduction. Ozzie now finds himself a part of this eclectic group of misfits, all the while struggling with the reality of it all.
TBS announced today that People of Earth will be returning for a third season. The good news comes two weeks ahead of the comedy's sophomore finale, which is scheduled to air on September 25.
The series follows a journalist who starts investigating an alien abductee support group. His initial skepticism subsides after digging deeper into their bizarre claims, to the point where he realizes that there may be evidence of his own alien abduction.
Premiering in 2016, the show got off to a strong start during its freshman run, where it was one of the Top 10 new cable comedies of the year among adults 18-49. Viewership has dipped slightly during Season 2, but has managed to remain relatively close to the previous year's numbers.
Look for Season 3 of People of Earth in 2018.
