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.
This week, Disney XD’s Guardians of the Galaxy will have special preview episode on Saturday to whet the appetite of fans and the series proper will get started on the 26th of this month. And more season finales are coming this week as the Summer entries are quickly wrapping up in preparation for upcoming Fall season. Among the shows with finales are: The Whispers (ABC, still awaiting word on a second season), Scream (MTV, renewed for a second season), Beauty and the Beast (CW, renewed for a fourth season), and The Last Ship (TNT, renewed for a third season). Also, USA delayed the season finale of Mr. Robot to this week because the episode had some similarities to the live shooting incident that occurred last week. And Fear the Walking Dead is taking a break on the Labor Day Weekend and running a repeat. It resumes new episodes the following week.
