Pretty exciting that our friends at So Many Shows are hosting another Colony Radio Show!
If you want to talk about Colony, make sure you check it out!
WHEN: 10pm EST on January 25th
WHY: Because it’s awesome and lots of fun!
It’s 2018 – do you know what that means? It means we are due for an all new season of USA Network’s Colony! Yes, it’s true… We all expected another January release date, but… it seems some programming changes (and potentially coverage of the Olympics) may have interrupted the scheduling! We need Colony Season 3!
So – When will it air? There’s been no official release date from USA or NBC Universal, but I have some guesses. Originally I thought we would see Colony Season 3 released early February since Damnation (the show that currently has Colony’s timeslot) ends on January 20th. Not to mention – Season 2 was released on Netflix on January 12th. (Typically, shows will return a month after their release on Netflix – depending on their contract.) But… The Olympics begin in February and USA Network does offer some coverage of the games. Most of it is late-night, but they will be televising hockey games – and some are presumed to be in the late evenings. So…
With all that being said, my guess is March 1st. They can’t put off the release of season 3 too long – it’ll interrupt potential programming later in the year. Plus – we need a season 4 sooner rather than later! Will I be right? I’m Proxy Snyder – so I usually am… But we should know soon as an announcement IS expected soon.
In the meantime – We have some exciting news. Colony Invasion has partnered with So Many Shows! If you’re not familiar with them – check it out. They cover TV shows across all the networks doing articles, reviews, podcasts, and streaming radio! And speaking of streaming radio… Check out their latest Colony Radio replay – all about Season 3!
Get ready, a new Proxy’s Corner should be released shortly!
See you soon, Colonists!
Great citizens of Colony…
WE DID IT! You must have heard by now – Colony is getting it’s 3rd season! Is anyone else “over the moon” excited, or is that just Nolan? It’s an amazing day, no… week! No, MONTH!
Normally in Proxy’s Corner, I take credit for everything. Everything good anyway… This time I can’t take credit for the awesome effort put forth by so many people. The #RenewColonyNow campaign was a huge (we won!) success. In just 3 weeks of time we had over 17,500 tweets, comments, likes, shares, etc across every social media platform. The executive team at USA/NBC Universal was mentioned/tweeted/retweeted over 3,000 times! Can you imagine their phone and email notifications? Dozens of people left feedback, called, emailed, and even sent snail mail letters to USA Network. And over the 13 days our petition was live – We gathered 1,900 signatures from fans all over the world! 38 different countries to be exact! ABSOLUTELY WITHOUT A DOUBT – IMPRESSIVE!
Colonists, YOU made this happen. Your impact and your love for this amazing show gave USA Network no alternative, but to renew our Colony! After the renewal announcement, I sent Chris McCumber (President, NBC Universal Entertainment Networks) a tweet thanking him and letting him know that we would finally stop tweeting him. After all this time – Who knew he would take a minute to respond? But he had a message for all of us:
Congratulations, Colonists. You earned it! We have our season 3!
When I started this campaign, I had no idea it would touch so many people from every corner of the world. I had no idea the emotional attachment so many people have for this great show. It was a wonder to watch. From the absolute bottom of my heart – THANK YOU – to everyone, EVERYWHERE who supported the campaign. This couldn’t have been done without you! You have my sincere respect and gratitude!
There are a few people that really stepped up over the last 10-14 days to get the #RenewColonyNow message out there. They took messages from me all hours of the day and worked hard to get as many Colonists involved as possible. Wendy, Tracey, Sharon, Lisa, Pete, Erin, Nancy, Roo, Erin, Robyn, Dave, Paul, Caroline, Monica, Scott and surely some that I’m missing at 6am this morning. I can’t thank you all enough!
To wrap this up – one more thank you… Thank you NBC Universal, USA Network, Chris McCumber, Val Boreland, Bill McGoldrick, and Jeff Wachtel. You took the brunt of our campaign and ultimately gave the fans of Colony what they wanted. Thank you so very much!
See everyone for the finale! #Colony FOREVER!
Citizens of the Colony…
I waited to write this until after the Facebook Live on Colony’s Facebook page in the hopes they would announce a season 3 renewal. Alas, they did not – and have no news about a 3rd season. Yet.
Our job is not finished. We must convince USA Network to #RenewColonyNow. I am counting on ALL OF YOU to sign and spread the word. Sign the petition here.
As of right now we have over 1,350 signatures from people in over 25 counties. Certainly, USA Network cannot ignore that. Even my nemesis, Tory Kittles, seems to be impressed and asked us to “keep it coming.” You can listen to the Talk Colony interview with Tory at TalkColony.com
Season finale is next week – and will certainly blow us all away… Pun potentially intended. Get excited everyone, it’s going to be another AMAZING show!
STATE OF THE COLONY
Fellow Colonists –
Ding dong, the Cardinal is dead. Transitional Authority forces conducted a very successful raid and eliminated many from the resistance and the leader of the Red Hand. Always entrust the occupation to take care of you – We will never let you down.
In other news, Deputy Proxy Nolan Burgess was caught committing treason against the bloc. I personally caught him attempting to sell bloc secrets to the resistance. I managed to subdue him and save the information he was attempting to sell and he is now on his way to the Factory. No one is above the law. Except me – I am the law.
Also, as many of you have heard, I kept my word again and saved Maddie Kenner. She got caught up in the Deputy Proxy’s mess – but I cleared her and spared her a trip to the Factory. I’m a really great guy.
Finally, you may notice some immediate changes to the bloc. The Hosts have called an emergency meeting – so many of us will need to leave the bloc for a short time. No need to fret, please do not worry… we have everything under control. Continue to do as you normally do and support the occupation as we meet to discuss how to make the bloc better.
One last reminder: Always obey orders from the Transitional Authority – they are here to protect you.
Stay safe Colonists.
All the best,
Proxy Alan Snyder
From Tory Kittles:
How do I become awesome like you, Proxy?
First, Tory, thanks for the question. Unfortunately, I was born this way… So keep practicing and perhaps one day – you too – could be this awesome.
From Tory Kittles (again):
Could I have your autograph, Proxy?
If you promise to stop submitting questions, I will send you an autograph. You have to give other Colonists a chance to ask a question! Collaborate on this – just one time, PLEASE!
From T.K. Broussard:
When there’s a season 3, do you think we could team up? I’d love to help you rule the world!
Tory, I know it’s you again. Don’t you have anything else to do?
Questions above have been edited and/or potentially made up – But some fun/interesting news about Mr. Kittles… He’ll be performing some Shakespeare! Details on the TalkColony Podcast interview!

My dear Colonists…
It’s a special day today in the LA bloc and in this Proxy’s Corner! The man himself, Peter Jacobson, is celebrating a birthday today! Still so young and vibrant even after all this time running the bloc! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PETER! Enjoy your day – and you better save me a piece of cake!
Our #RenewColonyNow Campaign is doing really well – all thanks to you! Over 3,500 tweets in the past week (1,200 alone last night!) helping to push USA Network into making the ONLY decision they should – renewal. If you haven’t yet, I implore you to take a moment and sign the Season 3 Petition at:
As of the time of writing this, we have over 500 signatures and some amazing comments/compliments for the show. USA certainly can’t ignore that! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take 30 seconds to “sign” it, and then share it with friends, family, co-workers, ANYONE THAT WILL LISTEN! We won’t stop until Colony is renewed!
STATE OF THE COLONY
Fellow citizens –
It is with a heavy heart I announce the passing of Ambassador King. Last night, he suffered a simple heart attack and while paramedics did all they could to resuscitate him, it was to no avail. His replacement HINT HINT could be announced soon.
We suffered an unfortunate attack in the Green Zone yesterday – the Red Hand attempted to disrupt the GZ, but our Transitional Authority Emergency Response Team was on site quickly and handled the situation with no casualties on our end. They will not win.
There are massive changes coming to the bloc. Helena and I are working diligently to put a plan in place to restore order and bring peace to everyone in our Colony.
I realize some of you may be worried or scared – Be strong, Colonists…I’m here for you. The Red Hand, Cardinal, and that pesky Broussard – will all be defeated.
Stay safe Colonists.
All the best,
Proxy Alan Snyder
Instead of an “Ask Proxy” section this week, I thought I’d post some links to “all things Colony” for fans to visit, watch, listen, participate, etc. If I missed an awesome site – let me know! (I’ll happily add it!)
That’s all for this week! Join the #RenewColonyNow movement! Tweet the hashtag, or visit our campaign on facebook at www.facebook.com/RenewColonyNow! Don’t forget to sign that petition! https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/renewcolonynow
