Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of September 10th: Premieres for The First, The Dragon Prince, and American Horror Story: Apocalypse

By | September 9, 2018

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.

Three more early Fall shows hit the schedule this weeks as the sci fi TV season continues to ramp up its genre offerings.  On Wednesday, American Horror Story returns for its eighth season which will be subtitled Apocalypse.  This one will crossover the storylines from Murder House (Season 1) and Coven (Season 3).  On Friday, two shows have their bows on the streaming channels.  Premiering on Hulu is their new mission-to-Mars The First which stars Sean Penn.  All ten episodes of the first season will be available that day as opposed to Hulu’s usual one episode per week release.  Over on Netflix, the animated fantasy series The Dragon Prince has its debut.  That one comes from Avatar: The Last Airbender writer Aaron Ehasz and all ten first season eps of that one will be available on Friday. (You can see the trailers for the premiering shows below.)  Also this week, Hulu’s Castle Rock will release its final first season episode (it has been renewed for a second season). But the number of Fall sci fi and fantasy shows will only be increasing over the next few weeks, so be sure that you are caught up on all the past shows as we head into the new season.  You can see the full schedule at this link.
