Got a bit of a press release from Syfy on their schedule of returning TV series, and other programming and such. Thought I’d share it for those of you still interested in finding out when Destination Truth, Warehouse 13, Alphas & Face Off are returning to Syfy! Also we’ll be checking on what night Lost Girl is getting moved to and when Eureka is ending.
Upcoming Syfy Memorial Day and July 4th TV marathons:
“Syfy will present a Memorial Day weekend movie festival highlighted by the premiere of Super Shark on May 26th.”
On July 4th, Syfy will hold their semi-annual Twilight Zone marathon.
Destination Truth returns for it’s 5th season premiere on Tuesday, July 10th.
It opens with two special back-to-back episodes, as Josh Gates and his team lead viewers on a chase into one of the world’s biggest caves in the jungles of Vietnam to search for Bigfoot.
Yea… Bigfoot hitched a ride on a liner and is vacationing in Vietnam now.
Warehouse 13 kicks off it’s 4th season on Monday, July 23rd and picks up after the shocking events of the climactic season three finale – the loss of Agent Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore), Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder), H.G. Wells (Jaime Murray) and the destruction of the Warehouse itself.
Season 2 of Alphas will return on Monday, July 23rd.
“Season 2 picks up eight months after last year’s finale with the stage set for an explosive turn of events at the Binghamton facility (the Guantanamo of the Alpha world) that could have devastating, far-reaching consequences. Dr. Lee Rosen (Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn), having exposed the existence of Alphas to the unsuspecting public, finds himself discredited and imprisoned by a government desperate to cover up his revelation. The rest of the core team has disbanded and some, without Rosen’s guidance and care, have regressed to their old, destructive ways. They must now battle their individual demons in order to reunite and try to save their own.”
The ever popular reality makeup contest show, Face Off, returns for its 3rd season on August 21st!
McKenzie Westmore returns as host. FYI: The second season finale became the most watched unscripted telecast in the channel’s nearly 20-year history
Just when I have settled into watching Lost Girl on Mondays, they’ll be moving her to Fridays, starting July 20th.
(Hey!!! But is that a good thing?)
Eureka Series Finale
It’s all too soon as far as I am concerned, but Eureka‘s series finale is slated for Monday, July 16th… when we’ll be saying thank you and farewell to Eureka stars Colin Ferguson (Sheriff Jack Carter) Salli Richardson-Whitfield (Allison Blake), Joe Morton (Henry Deacon), Erica Cerra (Jo Lupo), Neil Grayston (Douglas Fargo) and Niall Matter (Zane Donovan).
