It’s a slow week for sci-fi and fantasy as we hit the transition between the summer and fall seasons, with cable favorites now off the air but a few weeks to go before the networks kick their programming into high gear.
Add the Labor Day holiday to that, and we have a rather quiet week ahead …
Extant is nearing the end of its sophomore year, as Molly and JD search for resources to head off the Humanich threat. And on a new episode of Dominion, Vega is threatened by an encroaching 8-ball army and all-out civil war.
If you’re still looking for more genre programming this week, now’s the perfect time to check out the very original and outside-the-box show Sense8 on Netflix. And if you can’t wait for Arrow and The Flash to start in October, take a peek at the animated Web series Vixen now on CW Seed. It’s set in the same universe, and features the voices of Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin.
Here’s your schedule for this week in sci-fi television:
“Zugzwang.” Molly, JD and Ethan track down John’s mysterious former colleague who may hold the key to stopping the Humanich threat. Also, Julie enlists Charlie on a mission to find out where Lucy’s orders are coming.
“The Seed of Evil.” Alex, Noma and Michael hit an unexpected road block; Claire’s judgment call threatens the security of Vega; Julian changes tactics; Arika and Gates wrestle with the cost of survival.
Fear the Walking Dead returns Sunday, September 13.
