How to stream Resident Alien Season 1 online: Hulu? Netflix?

There’s a new sci-fi dramedy on its way. Resident Alien premieres tonight, and it’s not a series you want to miss.

Starring Alan Tudyk, the show is about an alien who lands on Earth with a nefarious plan. He wants to take out the entire human race. But when he pretends to be a human and ends up getting to know people, he realizes that humans may not be as bad as he initially thought.

His plan may also end up thrown off when a nine-year-old boy sees who this alien really is. Will he tell his parents? Will anyone even believe him?

Whether you watch it live or you check it out on-demand, you’re not going to want to miss out on Resident Alien Season 1. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Watch Resident Alien Season 1 live

If you’re in the United States, the show will premiere tonight, Jan. 27. It airs every Wednesday at 10/9c on SYFY.

You can watch on the channel or you can watch live via the SYFY website.

Those in Canada will want to tune into the CTV Sci-Fi Channel, formally known as Space. This is where the majority of SYFY content goes in Canada. You can also watch live on the CTV app.

Watch the series on demand

What about if you can’t watch it live? You’ll want to know how you can watch it the following day.

In Canada, it’s really easy. All episodes head to the CTV app. You can watch it for free for a week without a login or you can sign up to watch it whenever you want.

SYFY also makes it very easy. You can watch on the official website the day after new episodes air.

Will the series come to Netflix in the future? That’s possible. Some SYFY shows have headed to Netflix. However, the network is part of the NBC brand, so they may have to Peacock instead. We’ll keep an eye out on where the shows will go.

Buy Resident Alien on Amazon Video

It’s also possible to get the episodes on Digital. Head to Amazon Video, iTunes, or wherever you like to get episodes on Digital.

The episodes should be available to watch the day after new episodes air on SYFY. You can usually get a Season Pass, although that wasn’t available at the time of writing this.

Will the series be on DVD and Blu-ray?

There is a strong chance Resident Alien will head to DVD and Blu-ray. There’s no reason for a SYFY show not to head to DVD and Blu-ray.

It usually happens a few months after the finale at least. We’ll be sure to include a link once the DVD and Blu-ray are available.
