Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of Oct 16th: The Walking Dead Returns for its Eighth Season

By | October 16, 2017

The Fall premieres slow down this week, though one of the most anticipated shows has its debut. AMC’s The Walking Dead may not be resolving a major cliffhanger like its seventh season premiere did, but plenty of fans are waiting for the show’s return this Sunday. There are also several recap and behind the scenes specials that will be airing on AMC starting on Thursday as a lead-up to the premiere. Also this week, Disney XD’s Star Wars: Rebels returns for its fourth and final season on Monday. Hulu’s horror series Freakish is back for its second season on Wednesday. And Syfy’s Superstition has its debut on Friday (which was pushed back from its original October 6th launch date). And on Saturday, Syfy drops another of its October horror films with Stickman.  In addition, the entire run of Matt Groening’s animated sci fi comedy Futurama will be coming to Hulu this week on Monday;140 episodes plus four films will be available for streaming.  Also of note: I am adding The CW’s Riverdale to the schedule (and also covering it over at because that one is veering into genre territory and has already attracted plenty of sci fi and fantasy fans.
