New or notable science fiction and fantasy entries 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.
As it is the last week of the year going into New Years Day, there’s not much in the way of new programming to speak of. TNT’s The Librarians continues unabated on Sunday (8 PM EST), but all the rest of the Fall shows are still on hiatus. There will be several marathons over the week, though, and I have listed the ones of interest to genre fans below (let me know in the comments if I missed anything). And next week mid-season kicks off already with the premieres of Agent Carter and Galavant on ABC plus several shows returning from their winter breaks (the mid-season schedule will be up shortly). So be sure to get caught up on your DVR queue this week because the sci fi / fantasy shows hit the ground running at the beginning of January.
