Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of Feb 22nd: The X-Files Wraps Up Its Limited Run

By | February 21, 2016




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.

x-files-revivalThe sixth and final episode of the X-Files revival season airs on Monday, though that doesn’t necessarily mean that is the last we have seen of the return of Mulder, Scully and the rest of the gang. FOX has indicated that they “would love to do more” episodes and it doesn’t seem like the finale can wrap up all the storylines introduced this season.  But Monday is the season finale and we will have to wait and see if more episodes will hit the schedule next year (the ratings justified it, but it will depend on the availability and willingness of the cast and crew to come back).  Apart from that, it is pretty much business as usual for the week.  Hulu’s 11-22-63 is dropping a new episode on Monday as that one is following the episode-per-week formula as opposed to the binge-friendly full season releases preferred by Netflix and Amazon.  Agent Carter is airing another double episode on Tuesday as that one heads into its season finale next week.  But there are still a ton of sci fi / fantasy shows to watch, so make sure your DVR is in good shape because it’s not possible to watch these all live!  (Not that anyone would consider doing that in this day and age).
