Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of August 15th: Fear the Walking Dead Returns, Scream Has Its Second Season Finale




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.

Fear-the-Walking-Dead-S2This week, AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead returns from its break to resume its second season with a one and a half hour episode. And discussion series The Talking Dead immediately follows. Also, MTV’s Scream has its second season finale. Last week, I indicated that The CW’s Beauty and the Beast had its series finale, but it is actually just on break for a few weeks and will resume the first of its last three episodes on August 25th For those interested, the first season of AMC’s Into the Badlands gets an encore run on BBC America (that one is part of AMC Networks) starting on Saturday at 10 PM EST. Apart from that, it is (slow) business as usual with only a handful of Summer shows airing new episodes. Though the Fall season is just over a month away and you can get a look at the onslaught shows coming at this link.
