If you’ve been waiting on everything from Killjoys to 12 Monkeys, we have news for you. Syfy has announced its spring and summer schedule, and now we know when a whole lot of fan favorites will be back.

The first original returning to the airwaves is 12 Monkeys, which will have its third season premiere over three consecutive nights from Friday, May 19, to Sunday, May 21. The new season finds Cole (Aaron Stanford) and Railly (Amanda Schull) heading everywhere from the far future to the Victorian era to find and eradicate the Witness.

Dark Matter is back on Friday, June 9. It picks up after the EOS 7 space station is destroyed, and follows the survivors as they fight to stay alive and find the rest of their crew. 

Wynonna Earp returns Friday, June 9, with Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano) and the gang facing a whole new level of evil when more paranormal beings enter the Ghost Triangle. If you haven’t been watching this one, it’s one heck of a cowboy-tinged fantasy romp.

Face Off is back on Tuesday, June 13, with McKenzie Westmore returning to host.

The third season of Killjoys picks up on June 30, and follows a trio of space bounty hunters. This year, the team is set to lead an army to all out war across the J Star System. This show really hits the Firefly sweet spot, and is one of the best, under-the-radar space operas out there.

The new series Blood Drive makes its debut Wednesday, June 14. The show is described as “high-octane chaos,” set after L.A.’s last good cop (Alan Ritchson) is forced to join a twisted cross-country death race, his only hope of survival is a dangerous femme fatale who has the need for speed (Christina Ochoa). Oh, and did we mention the cars run on human blood? 

Later in the year, the Live From Comic-Con event will return to coincide with San Diego Comic-Con, from Thursday, July 20 to Saturday, July 22. The series will feature news, interviews, and insider information from the con.

Last but not least: Sharknado 5 (crazier title to come later), which premieres on Sunday, August 6. This one will track a global shark takeover, with chainsaw-wielding hero Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and partner in crime April Wexler (Tara Reid) back to save the world.
