TV THIS WEEK: Scream slashes to VH1, The Outpost returns, new Legion, more

Contributed by

We have a few interesting premieres this week, including a reboot of a horror franchise that was already rebooted just a couple years ago. You ready for Ghostface, again?

The long-gestating revived revival of Scream, which has jumped from MTV over to VH1 for this miniseries incarnation, makes its debut this week. They at least have the mask back, though the jury is still out on if this version can live up to the legacy of the film series that started it all. And over on The CW, the summer fantasy series The Outpost is also back this week, in case you’re needing a new threat to keep you busy.

Digging deeper, Legion is all new on FX, taking a look at David’s family history (which will almost certainly include some X-Men nods), and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has the second half of a world-destroying two-parter. The go-to horror block at AMC is also new, with Fear the Walking Dead unraveling more mysteries, plus a new NOS4A2. The CW’s The 100 is also new, along with CBS’s already-renewed Blood & Treasure, NBC’s The InBetween, and SYFY’s Krypton.

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