Next Week in TV 9/15: The end of Syfy’s Killjoys, FX’s American Horror Story Returns

By Mario Wario, DRWHO42, & Alyssa

Fall is almost here, which means more television shows will either be returning or debuting for the very first time. Of course, not every series will be joining the party, as a few will be doing their own thing. Here’s a quick rundown for next week.

On Tuesday, the animated zombies versus monsters (kid-friendly) series called The Last Kids on Earth premieres on Netflix in the early morning. The following day will feature the return of the American Horror Story series, which will be set in 1984. The first episode of season nine “Camp Redwood” will air at 10 p.m. ET on FX.

On Friday, the Criminal: UK series debuts in the early morning on Netflix, which stars the lovable David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones). Staying with the streaming service, fans of Zach Galifianakis can check out Between Two Ferns: The Movie, which is all about hitting the road to find and interview ‘famous’ people for his mockumentaries.

Lastly, Syfy’s Killjoys officially ends this Friday night at 10 p.m. ET, with season five being it for the series.

PBS Country Music: A Film by Ken Burns [Series Premiere]

For nearly four decades, Ken Burns has been telling the story of America one topic at a time. For the past eight years, he has focused on country music, resulting in — simply and definitively named, like so many of his films — Country Music, a sprawling 16-and-a-half-hour, eight-part, $30 million budget film airing on PBS’ 350 member stations starting Sept. 15. Burns’ team interviewed over 100 people, including Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Reba McEntire, Rhiannon Giddens and, in one of his last sit-downs, Merle Haggard. (Nearly 20 of Burns’ subjects have since died, making his plan to donate 175 hours of interviews and transcripts to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum all the more resonant.)
