TV THIS WEEK: The Terror, Preacher, Fear the Walking Dead, Killjoys and more

By Trent Moore
Fear the Walking Dead

It's a light one, but if you're looking for some supernatural thrills and scares, TV this week has you covered. The Terror leads the charge at AMC, along with Fear the Walking Dead and Preacher.

SYFY has a new Killjoys, and The CW has its summer lineup of Two Sentence Horror Stories, Pandora, and The Outpost. If you're looking for something on the quirkier side, AMC also has a new installment of The Lodge this week. On the movie front, SYFY has the network debut of the live-action anime adaptation Ghost in the Shell.

If you think this week seems thin, you're right. It is. But don't worry — fall is almost here and the TV dial will be stacked soon enough. If you're looking for some streaming alternative options to finish things out, we'd recommend The Boys on Amazon Prime, and Season 1 of Cobra Kai is currently free to view on YouTube.

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