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.
Most of the broadcast network shows will be in reruns or preemptions this next week rather than air against Olympics coverage (Legends of Tomorrow and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World will have new eps), but the cable channels and streaming services will be open for business as usual. On Monday, Star Wars: Rebels returns from hiatus (sooner than previously reported) and will air back-to-back episodes the next three weeks to wrap up its final season. On Friday, Amazon’s The Tick returns with the remaining six episodes of its first season. And on Sunday, The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its eighth season. Also, Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead returns for its third season on Sunday and TNT will give a special preview for the new TBS animated series Final Space on Saturday. Next week most shows return out of hiding from the Olympics and a couple air their first 2018 episodes (Gotham and Once Upon A Time). You can see the full Mid-Season schedule of sci fi and fantasy shows at this link.

Schedule Notes: If a show is listed as On Hiatus, that means that it is taking a break of more than two episodes in a row. If a streaming series is included in the listings after its premiere date, then it releases new episodes once per week on that day as opposed to releasing its entire season at one time.
