Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of July 3rd: Castlevania Debuts on Netflix, Fear the Walking Dead Has Its Mid-Season Finale

By | July 2, 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.

The premieres slow down this week with only one on the schedule. Netflix’s Castlevania, based on the classic video games about vampire hunters, arrives on Friday. The first season will comprise four thirty-minute episodes with a second season in the works for 2018. All four episodes will be available on Friday. On Sunday, AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead is already wrapping up for mid-season with a two hour episode. I believe it will be back in August to air the rest of its Season 4 episodes. And with the holiday week, there are some marathons running that will interest sci fi fans. BBC America has episodes of Star Trek: TNG and Voyager running throughout the week, and I also noticed a mini-run of Doctor Who episodes in there. On Tuesday, Syfy returns to its holiday staple and has The Twilight Zone running all day. Things will start to ramp back up next week as we have the premieres of new series Salvation on CBS and the returns of HBO’s Game of Thrones and FX’s The Strain. You can see the full rundown of July premieres and returns at this link.
