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’s another big week of premieres and as six more sci fi & fantasy shows have their debuts or return for their latest seasons. The new shows are Freakish (Hulu), Channel Zero (Syfy), and Falling Water (USA). Returning are three more CW shows: Supergirl (jumping networks from CBS for its second season), Legends of Tomorrow (second season), and Supernatural (twelfth season). And it won’t slow down too much because five more are queued up for next week (see Highlights section below). That gives us thirty three genre shows currently airing including Netflix’s Luke Cage and we will be close to the forty mark by the end of next week.
Additional notes on the schedule: Syfy roles out yet another of its Saturday cheese-fests with Stake Land 2 (don’t know how I missed the first one in that series). On Sunday, AMC will air a two-hour recap special for The Walking Dead to prep for the Season 7 premiere the following week.
