From 12 Monkeys to Sharknado, SYFY’s summer schedule has officially been unveiled — and the line-up should make for a genre-loaded way to beat the heat.
The schedule includes 12 Monkeys, Wynonna Earp, Killjoys, and Sharknado 6, all of which will roll out across June, July and August.
The fourth and final season of the cult hit 12 Monkeys makes its debut on Friday, June 15 as it aims to wrap up its ambitious story over a loaded, four-week run. The 11-episode season will roll out with three episodes every Friday, with the two-hour finale airing on July 6. The story finds James Cole (Aaron Stanford) and Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) traveling even further back in time than ever before. They’ll be searching for a weapon capable of stopping the Witness for good. But before its over, the duo may have to make “the ultimate sacrifice” when it comes to saving time itself.
The third season of fan favorite Wynonna Earp will also make its return on Friday, July 20. This latest run finds Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano) and her Black Badge crew taking on the demon who cursed the Earp family in the first place. The fate of the Ghost River Triangle, and the world, hangs in the balance.
Killjoys is also back for more deep space bounty-hunting adventures across The J on Friday, July 20. The series, which stars breakout Hannah John-Kamen (along with Luke Macfarlane and Aaron Ashmore), picks up with D’av and John trapped in deep space. The team will be taking on The Lady, an “immeasurable manifestation of evil without beginning or end.” The show started as a fairly straightforward action adventure, but has quickly evolved to feature some ambitious sci-fi world-building.
Aside from the original series line-up, this summer also brings the final installment in SYFY’s Sharknado B-movie series. Festivities ramp up with Sharknado Week from Sunday, August 12 – Sunday, August 19. That line-up includes Deep Blue Sea 2, plus Nightmare Shark and 6-Headed Shark Attack. Sharknado 6 drops Sunday, August 19 and picks up with Fin traveling back in time to stop the first ever Sharknado. Yes, it sounds ridiculous, but how else could this saga end?
