Syfy has become the latest network to unveil its plans for the coming fall, which include the return of three shows from last year and three new shows looking to stand out in a crowded television environment.
The first September premiere comes from Channel Zero: No-End House, which debuts Wednesday, September 20th at 10:00. The series, having aired its first acclaimed season on Tuesdays in 2016, is an anthology that interprets creepypastas, with No-End House following a young woman (Amy Forsyth) who visits a bizarre house of horrors with her friend (Aisha Dee) and comes home to realize that everything’s changed. You can check out the first trailer here.
September also sees the fourth season of Z Nation returning Friday, September 29th at 9:00. Season four is set to feature a time jump that lands Murphy and Warren alive in Zona and introduces both Juggalo zombies and a zombified POTUS. Z Nation will lead into the series premiere of Superstition on Friday, October 6th at 10:00. From Mario Van Peebles (Bloodline), the series follows the Hastings family, who own and operate a funeral home in La Rochelle, Georgia. The town is known for its haunted houses, elevated graveyards, odd townsfolk, and rich history of unusual phenomena, finding itself at the mercy of a mysterious malefactor.
Interestingly, Syfy expands its scripted reach to Thursdays beginning in October. The second season of vampire drama Van Helsing arrives Thursday, October 5th at 9:00, a change from its Fridays at 10:00 slot from 2016. Despite its soft linear ratings, the series will lead into freshman Ghost Wars, which premieres Thursday, October 5th at 10:00. From Simon Barry (Continuum), Ghost Wars is set in a small Alaska town overrun by paranormal forces and chronicles the journey of local outsider Roman (Avan Jogia) – the only hope the town has at survival. You can check out the first trailer here.
Syfy will wrap up its fall with Christopher Meloni starrer Happy!, which makes its debut in the tough scheduling situation that Incorporated found itself – Wednesdays in deep fall. Premiering November 29th at 10:00, Happy! follows an ex-cop turned hitman whose life is changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse. You can check out the first teaser here.
