Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of August 8th: Finales for Outcast and Beauty and the Beast




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.

outcast-cinemaxSummer continues to wind down as two more shows have their finales this week. Cinemax’s Outcast has its Season 1 finale and will be returning for its second year in 2017. And The CW’s Beauty and the Beast ends its low-rated, four year run and heads off to international syndication where it has apparently played better than it has in the States. This will have us the lowest number of sci fi / fantasy shows airing through the week than we have seen in a long time (though Fear the Walking Dead resumes its second season next week), but no need to fret as plenty of genre entries are headed our way in the Fall (as you can see at this link). So get caught up on your DVR queue now, because sci fi overload will be on us once again when Fall kicks into high gear.
