The last time we saw Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) on TNT’s Falling Skies, he was being beamed up into an alien spaceship — his fate uncertain. But if these exclusive teaser posters for season 2 are any indication, it won’t be long before the professor is back on Earth with guns blazing.

One of the new posters (click below) for the Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi drama features the tagline “The battle is just getting started,” and depicts the 2nd Mass (along with our favorite bad-boy John Pope!) armed and on a mission. While the new images provide some clues as to where the next chapter of the alien-invasion drama is headed, it also raises plenty of questions. For instance, who is the harnessed girl with the moldy growth on her face? And why is Tom having a moment with a Mech in the rain?

Despite the poster’s defiant taglines, showrunner Remi Aubuchon says that when the series picks up on June 17, it’s not just going to be “us versus the aliens” anymore. “I think as we get to know our enemy better, we’re going to see it’s not as black and white as we thought it was,” he says. “There’s much more to it than we ever expected there would be and I think that will be surprising.”
