WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14
American Horror Story, 10/9C, FX
“Episode 1” airs. And otherwise we just don’t know!
Blindspot, 10/9C, NBC
“In Night So Ransomed Bridge” (S02E01)
Another year of anagrammed episode titles and Total Recall-style thrills as Jane Doe (Jamie Alexander) is revealed to be a double-agent and the FBI still wants her help, even though her formerly biggest advocate, Agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton), pretty much hates her now.
From Dusk Till Dawn, 10/9C, El Rey
“La Reina” (S03E02)
Robert Rodriguez returns home to direct, and we find out what the hell has been going on with Kate since her death at the end of last season (and the intervening six months, show-time). Also, Santanico!
South Park, 10/9C, Comedy Central
“Member Berries” (S20E01)
Following last season’s triumphant return to form, a similarly truncated Season 20 – just ten episodes – will hopefully bring us yet more of Mr. Garrison’s xenophobic run for President (blame Canada!) and another season-long story arc, which was a first in this long-running show’s time-warped history.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15
Beauty and the Beast, 9/8C, CW
“Au Revoir” (S04E13)
SERIES FINALE No way! After four seasons, a farewell to one of the more pointless remakes of all time. See you in your next show, Kristen Kreuk! Because for sure it will be genre.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16
Z Nation, 8/7C, Syfy
“No Mercy, Part 1 & 2” (S03E01E02)
Back with a third season two-part opener, our ever-turbulent gang face a new threat and we try to figure out, what was up with that super-creepy zombie tea party from last season?
Dark Matter, 10/9C, Syfy
“But First, We Save the Galaxy” (S02E13)
The Season 2 finale will hopefully tell us even more about our memory-wiped heroes, villains and just boring people. (Sorry, Three! You know it’s true.). With Season 3 confirmed for 2017, a cliffhanger is pretty much guaranteed.
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
Fear the Walking Dead, 9/8C, AMC
“Pillar of Salt” (S02E12)
More zombie stuff.
The Strain, 10/9C, FX
“Gone But Not Forgotten” (S03E04)
More vampire stuff.
