Next Week in TV 6/7: Vampires, and Zombies, and Fairies, Oh My!

By Scott & DRWHO42

Looking at the week ahead, the blog can safely say that this upcoming TV schedule sure looks light. Luckily, there are a few notables that need to be highlighted.

On Sunday, June 7, AMC’s Quiz series will be airing at a different time now and that new time is 9 p.m. ET instead of 10 p.m., so adjust accordingly Quiz fans.

Fast-forwarding to the morning of Wednesday, June 10, Netflix’s Reality Z TV series will be hitting the streaming service and, as the letter Z suggests, it is about a zombie apocalypse hitting Rio de Janeiro while a few reality show contestants live in a TV studio trying to survive the chaos. Overall, give this new series a try, especially if you like zombies.

Also on Wednesday but at 10 p.m. ET is the second season finale of FX’s vampire comedy series What We Do in the Shadows. Luckily, a third season has been ordered by FX so fans of the show will have more vampire shenanigans to get ready for, although no official release date has been announced as of this writing. Hopefully, the wait isn’t too long.

Then there is a new movie releasing exclusively on Disney+ this Friday morning, and that movie is Artemis Fowl. It is about a young boy named Artemis Fowl (played by Ferdia Shaw) finding a secret society of fairies to help him find his missing father. This movie, which is based on the same novel by Eoin Colfer, was originally intended to be released in theaters in 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic said no to that plan. Regardless, let’s just hope it is a good movie to watch this Friday.

Looking back to last week’s TV news, here is a couple that caught the blog’s attention. First, it looks like a new lead character is being created for the second season of The CW’s Batwoman show, which is all due to the sudden exit of Ruby Rose who played Kate Kane / Batwoman last season. As for the second bit of news, the man himself, Jon Favreau, has recently confirmed to the world that season two of The Mandalorian is still on track to premiere this October, even though the coronavirus pandemic had stopped the show’s production.

That is it, for now, TV fans, but please don’t forget to join the conversation over on the FoCC forum to share your thoughts on all things TV. Also, do keep an eye out for the blog’s second edition of its hibernation recommendation must-watch article, which is still aiming to come out very soon. Until then, have a safe and amazing week, everyone!
