Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of January 30th: Premieres for The Expanse, The 100, and Powerless

By | January 29, 2017

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.

It has been over a year since Syfy’s The Expanse had its December 2015 series debut, and the show is now finally returning for its second season.  It bows on Wednesday this week at 10 PM EST after The Magicians and will air a double-episode with limited commercial interruptions.  Also returning this week, and also Wednesday, is The CW’s The 100 which has its Season 4 debut at 9 PM EST.  And on Thursday, NBC’s superhero comedy series Powerless has its bow at 8:30 PM EST.  Also of note: fans of Gotham and Lucifer should know that both shows air their last new episodes this week until late in April, an odd scheduling move by FOX.  Then the next week brings the premiere of FX’s Legion and the return of The Walking Dead.  You can see the full mid-season schedule of sci fi and fantasy shows at this link.

Update: (1/31/17) Also premiering this week is the zombie comedy Santa Clarita Diet starring Drew Barrymore which bows on Netflix on Friday. That’s yet another original series from that streaming service that they have released with little or no advance notice.

    Also, “Santa Clarita Diet” debuts on Netflix (all episodes.) Probably the title that keeps it from being recognized as SF/F, it’s a Zombie comedy.

      Thanks for the heads up. I have updated the listings with that info now. Yet another series that Netflix is releasing with little to no promotion. But that streaming services original shows keep drawing huge viewership, so it seems to be working for them.
