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.
This is sophomore week as four second season shows have their premieres over the next seven days. First up is the CBS animal-pocalypse series Zoo which bows on Tuesday. Then on Thursday, the little-known (though worth watching) virus-outbreak series Between returns for its second season on Netflix. And finally, on Friday Syfy’s two space opera imports (from the Canadian Space Channel) Killjoys and Dark Matter both have their debuts. And there are still more Summer shows on the way, you can see the full schedule at this link. Note that I had previously indicated that this upcoming Saturday would be the Season 2 finale for Outlander, but it looks like Starz is instead running a marathon of prior episodes on that day and the finale will occur on July 9th. Also note that apparently MTV is shifting Scream to Tuesdays at 10 PM EST starting this week.
Links below are to the shows’ pages on our partner site CancelledSciFi.com where I am posting season to date ratings results and status updates.
