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.
There are two more sci fi / fantasy premieres this week as Summer continues to ramp up. Spike TV’s The Mist, which adapts the Stephen King story of the same name, rolls for its debut on Thursday at 10 PM EST. And on Sunday, AMC’s Preacher, based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, has its second season premiere at 10 PM EST, leading out from Fear the Walking Dead (The Talking Dead gets shifted by one hour to 11 PM EST). Starting next week, Preacher moves to its regular Monday 9 PM EST timeslot and will be followed by the Talking Preacher discussion series. Also, The CW’s The Originals has its season finale on Friday (that one has been renewed for a fifth year). That gives us a fair amount of sci fi shows to watch so far this Summer, and three more are on the way next week with the returns of Zoo on CBS, Cleverman on Sundance, and Killjoys on Syfy (you can see a full rundown of the June returns and premieres at this link).
