This week brings us three more Spring premieres of sci fi and fantasy shows. On Sunday April 25th, HBO’s Westworld returns for its long-awaited second season and AMC’s Into the Badlands is back for its third year run. Earlier in the week, The CW’s The Originals returns for its fifth and final season on Wednesday. And Supergirl is back with new episodes on Monday after having been on a second hiatus since January while Legends of Tomorrow finished up its third season in the Monday 8 PM EST timeslot. Wrapping up this week is The CW’s Black Lightning (already renewed for a second season), and that makes way for the return of The 100 on Tuesdays next week. And on Sunday, Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead wraps up its third season (that one is currently On the Bubble). You can see the full Spring schedule of sci fi and fantasy shows at this link.
