It's a relatively light week, led by the long-awaited series finale of SYFY's time travel drama 12 Monkeys. No spoilers, but yeah, it's pretty great. Outside of that finale, we have a few new episodes of summer shows, but not very much else.

AMC is dropping a new episode of its acclaimed sci-fi series HUMANS, which is the perfect android drama to scratch your Westworld itch during the hiatus. The network also has a new Preacher, which is one of the best slow burns on TV. Freeform has a new installment of Marvel soap Cloak and Dagger, and CBS has a fresh line-up of genre-friendly fare, with new episodes of Salvation and Sherlock-based mystery procedural Elementary. USA also has a new installment of its alien invasion drama Colony.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you'll be watching.
