Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of Oct 9th: Premieres for The CW Superheroes, Mr. Robot, The Shannara Chronicles and More

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 onslaught of Fall premieres continues as eight shows will be returning to the schedule this week. All four of The CW’s superhero shows kick off their new seasons–Supergirl (Monday), The Flash (Tuesday), Legends of Tomorrow (Tuesday) and Arrow (Thursday)–and Supernatural is back for its record-busting thirteenth year on Thursday (for those interested, Riverdale has its second season premiere on Wednesday). Also, on Wednesday USA’s Mr. Robot has its third season debut and The Shannara Chronicles moves over to Spike (soon to be the Paramount Network) for its second season. And on Saturday, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency returns to BBC America for its second season. I had previously seen October 13th as the tentative premiere date for Netflix’s The Punisher, but that has been delayed due to the recent events in Las Vegas. It now looks like that one might debut at some point in November. Lastly, on Sunday Fear the Walking Dead and The Last Ship will have their season finales. You can see the full Fall schedule of sci fi and fantasy shows at this link.
