TV THIS WEEK: The 100 season finale, Face Off series finale, Fear the Walking Dead returns, and more

This week brings a few major finales to the fold, as we wind into the deeper corners of the summer season. Yes, fall is getting closer every week, but there's still plenty to check out in the meantime.

The CW's apocalyptic drama The 100 hits its Season 5 finale this week, while SYFY's long-running reality series Face Off is set to drop its series finale with the end of the Battle Royale all-star season. AMC's resurgent Fear the Walking Dead is also back from its midseason hiatus, looking to fill the zombie void. The one interesting premiere this week is ABC's Castaways, which admittedly isn't genre per se but looks to be a real-life, reality TV take on Lost (though without a smoke monster, we'd imagine).

Looking at new stuff, CBS has a new Salvation, The CW has The Outpost, and NBC has a new Reverie. SYFY's Friday night line-up of Wynonna Earp and Killjoys is also set to anchor the weekend, with Wynonna Earp still reeling from a shocking death of a key character.

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