Weekly roundup of science fiction and fantasy shows (as well as movies/specials of note) on the Prime Time TV schedule, also including programs that may be of interest to genre fans. Air dates and times subject to change without notice.
More premieres and finales this week as the Spring season continues progress. Premiering this week is Syfy’s new series Hunters and BBC America’s Orphan Black, which is back for its fourth season. Wrapping up is Syfy’s The Magicians (renewed for a second season), The CW’s iZombie (renewed for a third season), and Esquire’s Beowulf (likely to get cancelled). And as for finales, I should note that last week I incorrectly indicated that Syfy’s Bitten was having its series finale, but that is actually on April 25th. That show is preempted this week but returns next week with its penultimate episode. And The CW’s Arrow and Supernatural go on yet another break but both will be back in two weeks with new episodes. But there is still plenty of sci fi / fantasy television to watch this week with more on the way (you can see the Spring schedule at this link).
Links below are to the shows’ pages on our partner site CancelledSciFi.com where I am posting season to date ratings results and status updates.
