When one show ends, another begins. We might be losing Doctor Who until Christmas, but at least Killjoys is back on Syfy. We'll miss the TARDIS, but it'll be nice to have Lucy and the gang back, right?

Along with the Killjoys premiere and Doctor Who finale (which is the final regular-season episode featuring Peter Capaldi in the title role), we have a new episode of Spike's excellent original drama The Mist, the season finale of iZombie, a new Orphan Black and a new Preacher. CBS's sci-fi adjacent series Zoo is also back for the summer, and we've cherry-picked some excellent movies to help fill in the programming gaps (including a kid-friendly, reality-hopping flick you really should check out).

Check out our full rundown below, set your DVR accordingly, and let us know what you’ll be watching.
