TV THIS WEEK: New Krypton, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Fear The Walking Dead and more

By Trent Moore
Fear the Walking Dead Strand

We’re finally setting into the new normal for the summer off-season, and thankfully, the genre schedule is finally starting to fill out. If that’s not enough, there are also some quirky documentaries and reality shows rounding out the edges.

No major premieres or finales this week, but there are plenty of new episodes. SYFY’s Krypton is new, and ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The CW’s iZombie and The 100, and AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead and NOS4A2 are all fresh this week as well. Digging a bit deeper, the Science channel has a mini-doc looking at the conspiracy theories behind the moon landing, and CNN has a special look back at Apollo 11.

If you’re looking for some throwback disaster action, SYFY also has the 1990’s flick Volcano on tap this week. CBS’s summer adventure series Blood & Treasure is also new, along with a new Ripley’s Believe it or Not with Bruce Campbell at the helm.

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