The Next 2 Weeks in TV 7/15: A Summer Trip to Castle Rock!

By Alyssa, DRWHO42, and Mario Wario

As the blog team (and anyone else luckily enough to get badges) get ready to visit the great geek-mecca known as San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), due to the nature of everyone’s schedule over the next few weeks, we are covering two weeks instead of one. For example, this article will cover July 15th through the 28th.

In preparation of Discovery Channel’s 30th edition of Shark Week, which will be attacking us all over the next couple of weeks, it should be noted that the robust ‘Shark Week’ will occur in mid-August, with the debut of Syfy’s Sharknado 6 which will air on Sunday, August 19th, at 8pm ET.

We also see the return of Syfy’s Wynonna Earp (9pm) and Killjoys (10pm) on Friday, July 20th. The other shows of note include the return of USA’s Suits (July 18th at 9pm), Cinamax’s Outcast (July 20th at 10pm; already premiered in the U.K. last year in April), and Netflix’s Orange is the New Black (July 27th).

The highly anticipated Castle Rock debuts on Hulu on July 25th, and the blog team recommends watching the premiere, due to the great cast lineup, as well as being set in the amazing Stephen King multiverse.

As for departed, the third season finale of USA’s Colony airs on July 25th at 10pm, yet CBS’ Code Black says goodbye to its fans on July 18th at 10pm. That series was cancelled by CBS during mid-season, and it should be noted that the excellent sitcom Ghosted was also cancelled, but at FOX, so the series finale will air on July 22nd at 9:30pm.

And finally, we are also treated to an lost episode of Doctor Who, which will be airing on Thursday, July 19th on BBC America!

So, are you as excited to watch all of these shows over the next two weeks? Let us know your thoughts by joining the conversation over on the FoCC Forums!
