The big news this week is the full season binge of 12 Monkeys' third season and the return of Twin Peaks, but there's still a whole lot more to check out.

Syfy will be dropping the entire third season of the acclaimed time-travel drama in a full-season binge this weekend, and we also have the season finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Supernatural on tap. Over on The Flash, we'll see the return of Captain Cold (we're curious to see how they pull that off), plus new Arrow and Supergirl episodes. Then, of course, Showtime will have the return of Twin Peaks.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you think.
