Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of October 24th: The Strain Has Its Season Finale




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-strain-S3For the first time in a month and a half, there are no premieres of sci fi & fantasy shows this week unless I missed something which is not impossible considering how many currently airing, returning, and upcoming genre entries there are out there (you can get a look at that at this link). Next week there are two premieres–TBS’s People of Earth and WGN’s Salem–and there will be a few more over the coming weeks (you can see the full Fall schedule at this link), but the new season bows have mostly slowed down until January. FX’s The Strain does have its season finale this week and it will be returning next year for its fourth and final season. And Syfy gets in another of its cheese-fests on Saturday with The Night Before Halloween. And there are plenty of genre shows airing this week, so don’t think that you will be wanting for something to watch over the next seven days and beyond.
