Next Week in TV 12/2: Get Ready to Blast off with Syfy’s ‘Nightflyers’ and More!

By Mario Wario, DRWHO42, and Alyssa

Alright TV fans, it’s that time again!

Last week had the fall finales of The Walking Dead, Talking Dead, and Manifest, while Vikings awoke from its fall slumber to entertain its fan base. As for this week, there are tons of new content to look forward to.

For instance, a brand-new ten-part sci-fi horror/space drama called Nightflyers will premiere on Sunday, December 2nd at 10 p.m. ET on Syfy. This new TV series was adapted from a novella by George R.R. Martin, the creator of Game of Thrones. By the way, do not forget to read DRWHO42’s new Nightflyer article titled “FoCC Reactor: Looking forward to Nightflyers on SYFY”.

On Tuesday, December 4th, The Flash is going to celebrate its 100th episode at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. The fall finale of The Gifted airs at the same time but on Fox.

Netflix continues to be the ‘content king’, and this week will see Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle debut this Friday. This film was directed by Andy Serkis which also has a pretty good cast lineup. Netflix got the film from Warner Bros. Pictures, who sold it to the online company, although the film was released in select theaters a few days ago.

Sadly, Netflix has decided to cancel Daredevil so no season four next year.

On Saturday, December 8th, the season finale of Disney XD’s Lego Star Wars: All-Stars series airs at 11 a.m. ET.
