Next Week in TV 6/23: The Return of FX’s Legion!

By Scott, DRWHO42, Alyssa

Alright TV fans, it’s time to get ready for another jammed-packed week.

BBC America’s Luther concludes its short and fifth season this week. Fans can watch Idris Elba (John Luther) bring the fight to the enemy once more when episode four airs tonight (Sunday, June 23rd) at 8 p.m. ET. The blog doesn’t think that Elba will need to cancel any apocalypse anytime soon.

Also airing at 8 p.m. ET, but on Starz, will be the first season finale of The Spanish Princess. Fans of the show shouldn’t worry about this season being it for the series, because eight more episodes were ordered by Starz recently, which will conclude the Catherine of Aragon story.

Want to watch something that has zombies and illegal street racing? Then how about trying Spectrum’s new show called Curfew, which stars Sean Bean, Adam Brody, Billy Zane, Miranda Richardson, and Adrian Lester. Yes, Eddard Stark (Bean) and the Phantom (Zane) will be teaming up in this one, and many can watch the series debut of Curfew on Monday morning (June 24th).

FX’s Legion is back for another ‘weird’ run, yet this upcoming third season will be the last for the series. The episode titled “Chapter 20” will get things going this Monday night (June 24th) at 10 p.m. ET, but let’s just hope the show’s ending will be a good one. Although with Professor Charles Xavier (played by Harry Lloyd) being introduce this season, which should please many Professor X fans out there, it may be a sign that the showrunners may have gone all out for season three. They have done a superb job in creating a highly entertaining show so far.

For Siren fans, Freeform will be airing a new episode this week (Thursday, June 27th), but at a different time (9:01 p.m. ET).

Anime fans everywhere should know that 7seeds is debuting on Netflix this Friday morning (June 28th). In it, Shy Natsu awakens as “part of a group chosen to ensure the survival of humanity … Together, they have to survive on a changed Earth.”
