Syfy has just released the first trailer and it is definitely something to behold – promising cannibals, monsters and more.

The penultimate episode of The Magicians: Season Two (Syfy, Wednesdays, 10/9C) finds Eliot banished from Fillory; Quentin and Julia have broken Alice’s shade out of Underworld; Josh found himself high-fiving an Eliot who was suddenly not there); King Idri and a good many Fillorians are rats, and Senator Gaines has reached his limit with his dad.

In other words, same stuff, different day.

Syfy Unveils Summer 2017 Schedule!

Syfy has unveiled its Summer 2017 schedule and there’s only one new series (but it sounds very Roger Corman-esque). Also included: one movie, one returning unscripted series and four returning dramas – plus a return to Comic-Con for more and thorough coverage of Nerd Prom (trust me, I’m a nerd…)

The new series, blood Drive, is about the last good cop being forced into a cross country race in which the cars are fueled with human blood (very Roger Corman, right?).

The new movie is (wait for it…) Sharknado 5; the returning unscripted series is Face Off (possibly my favorite unscripted series ever).

Back for more are: 12 Monkeys (10 episodes over three nights), Dark Matter, Wynonna Earp (actually better than the graphic novel that spawned), and Killjoys.

HAPPY! follows Nick Sax – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man — who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse.

The Magicians (Syfy, Wednesdays, 10/9C) has been a revelation in its second season. The writing, directing and performance have all reached a higher level (and the first season was pretty fine).

The characters are more nuanced; the world is deeper and even more intriguing.

The good news is that Syfy’s 12 Monkeys has been renewed for a fourth season prior to the premiere of the third. The bad news is that it will be the show’s final season.

The third season of 12 Monkeys will premiere over three consecutive nights, with four episodes on Friday May 19th (8/7C) and three each on Saturday, May 20th and Sunday, May 21st (8/7C).

The Magicians (Syfy, Wednesdays, 9/8C) continues to delight with an episode that our protagonists back on their heels in light of new revelations. Meanwhile, The Beast sings – really, really well (and quite annoyingly).

Hotel Spa Potions opens with a shot of what looks like sugar-frosted Cheerios drifting through space, suggesting that no matter what we might be expecting, that’s not what we’re going to get.
