Hunters (Syfy, Mondays, 10/9C) is one of the most off-the-moment shows Syfy will ever do. Its tale of a secret government agency that hunts alien terrorists is dark, and gritty and genuinely creepy not to mention scary.
In case you missed the news this week. The official title of the next SHARKNADO movie is…SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS! The two hour original movie will premiere four months from now on a TV very, very nearby – on Syfy, Sunday, July 31 at 8PM ET/PT.
A post-apocalyptic Western that follows a group of gunslingers as they look to rid a small town of a zombie plague? Starring members of NSYNC, the Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees and O-Town?

Dead 7 is from the producers of Sharknado – and co-written by Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter and Sawyer Perry. Directed by Danny Roew (Shotgun Wedding), Dead 7 premieres on April 1st. Check out the trailer after the jump.
Based on the IDW graphic novel by Beau Smith, Syfy’s modern supernatural western, Wynonna Earp, stars Melanie Scrofrano as Wyatt Earp’s great-great granddaughter, Wynonna Earp, a young woman who left town years ago but has now returned home to face her literal and figurative demons (although she doesn’t know it when we meet her – she’s just attending a funeral).
Syrfy has released a behind-the-scenes featurette that gives us the lowdown on the new series, Wynonna Earp, which premieres on April 1st. Check it out after the jump.
In what has to a first, Spotify will have a plot relevant presence in syfy’s new series Hunters.
Here’s how it works: In a gritty underground world, the “Hunters” – ruthless, otherworldly terrorists at the center of the series’ story – regularly communicate via coded messages within Spotify playlists. The series’ unique story-telling will feature songs by both classic and current artists such as Savages and The Kinks, as well as cover tracks available exclusively on Spotify. Online, the partnership will include a season-long digital experience called “Crack the Code,” where fans can enter a sweepstakes by deciphering a secret coded phrase hidden within special playlists on Spotify (curated with tracks featured in HUNTERS).
This week’s episode of The Magicians (Syfy, 9/8C) is entitled The Strangled Heart, which is appropriate because this is the episode where the show finds its heart and soul after seven episodes of slowly and carefully (for the most part) building our familiarity with the core characters.
Bitten (Syfy, Mondays, 11/10C) begins its final season this week and series stars Laura Vandervoort, Grek Bryk and Greyston Holt and Executive Producer J.B. Sugar took a bit of time to chat with a group of bloggers/journalists about it.
In a few cases, the simplest questions sparked the most interesting answers as the four talked about what’s ahead and reminisced about their time on the series. Occasionally, because there were so many participants, the transcriber lost track of which voice belonged to which actor, so there are a few comments ascribed to ‘Male.’
