In case you have been living under a rock, last week saw the series debut of Marvel‘s Cloak & Dagger, as well as the return of Face Off and Humans, with Big Hero 6: The Series popping up to say hello as well. As for this week, it is once again time to grab that remote and relax, or set that DVR of yours.
For instance, with summer almost here, today will see the mid-season finales of Fear the Walking Dead and Talking Dead: Fear Edition on AMC. Fox’s Ghosted is back from its brief hiatus with two new episodes, while ABC’s The $100,000 Pyramid will celebrate another season premiere. (Of course, the showtimes can be found in this week’s listing right below our picks.)
On Tuesday, Legion‘s second season wraps up at 10pm ET on FX yet don’t be sad…David Haller (Dan Stevens) and his crazy friends will return for a third season, as FX renewed Legion for another psychedelic run. Switching focus to FX’s sister channel, FXX is going to have the privilege in showing the ninth season finale of Archer: Danger Island on Wednesday, June 13, at 10pm ET. A tenth season has been ordered by FX which should debut sometime in 2019.
Fast forwarding to Friday and calling all paladins everywhere…the castle of Voltron (which is Netflix) will see the mighty return of Voltron: Legendary Defender at 3:01am ET. Over on Syfy, fans of 12 Monkeys can catch the fourth season premiere at 8pm ET; however, season four is going to be it for this time-traveling series.
For everything else airing this week, do check out this week’s listing.
