Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of September 19th: The Fall Season Officially Kicks Off with the Premieres of Eleven Sci Fi & Fantasy Shows




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.

agents-of-shield-season-4-posterThis is it! The Fall season officially kicks off this week, and in a big way with eleven premieres of sci fi & fantasy shows. If you haven’t caught up on your DVR queue at this point, hang that up until the Christmas holidays. Because after this week’s debuts, next week throws in five more and then The CW shows get started up the week after that (you can see the full Fall schedule at this link).  If you plan on watching every one of these premieres, I hope that your DVR is in good working order and that you have stored up some sick time to play hooky from work!  If you are trying to figure out what to watch, here are some recommendations at this link.  And if you want some help in trying to keep track of everything, we have that sorted out at this link.  And you can find trailers and more information for all this week’s premieres at this link.

Note that Mr. Robot will be airing the second part of its Season 2 finale this week; I had previously indicated incorrectly that it was wrapping up last week (it has been renewed for a third season).  Also note that NBC’s The Good Place premieres on Monday after The Voice then has a second episode this week when it moves to its regular timeslot on Thursdays at 8:30 PM EST.
