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 slows down on the premieres with only two ongoing shows having their bows over the next seven days. On Monday, The CW’s Arrow returns for its seventh season in its new timeslot. Immediately after that, the Constantine animated series (titled Constantine: The Legend Continues for its special airing) debuts in Prime Time. That one, which consists of 5 six minute episodes, previously was available on CWSeed.com. Matt Ryan will host the special which also includes a sneak peak at the fourth season of Legends of Tomorrow (Constantine joins that team starting this season). On Friday, Netflix’s Daredevil returns for its third season and all thirteen episodes will be available for streaming that day. On Saturday, Syfy rolls out another of their original horror films, Killer High. Here’s the description of that one: “Sabrina’s perfectly planned high-school reunion goes south when a monster keeps killing all the guests.” Next week, the premieres start ramping up again with Legends of Tomorrow S4, Midnight Texas S2, Castlevania S2, and more.

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.
