SYFY Sets Summer Lineup With More ’12 Monkeys’ and ‘Sharknado’
Hey 'Deep Blue Sea 2' is also coming
Network’s summer schedules are usually pretty lame, but SYFY has a few options that you might want to set a reminder for. While the big-three networks tend to rely on reality shows and game-shows in the summer, SYFY offers original movies and series all year round. This summer SYFY will premiere new episodes of “12 Monkeys,” “Wynonna Earp,” Killjoys,” and another “Sharknado” movie to keep you entertained during the summer doldrums.
SYFY confirmed the network’s summer schedule earlier today, which has “12 Monkeys” returning on June 15th, and “Wynonna Earp” and “Killjoys” returning on July 20th. Sharknado Week is also coming back, and the company has another shark-filled movie event beginning Sunday, August 12th. The whole special event will lead into the finale of SYFY’s hit franchise on August 19th.
In Season 4 of “12 Monkeys,” James Cole (Aaron Stanford) and Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) set out on an epic quest, traveling further back in time than they have ever been before. According to legend, their only hope lies with a weapon capable of stopping the Witness for good. The network teases the episodes by saying, “But they’ll soon discover that in order to win the final battle and save time itself, they will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.”
Based on the IDW Publishing comic book created by Beau Smith, “Wynonna Earp” follows the life of famous lawman Wyatt Earp’s demon-fighting great-great-granddaughter Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano), who inherited Wyatt’s mythic abilities and his famous gun in order to put an end to the Earp curse once and for all. In Season 3, reckless and reluctant warrior hero Wynonna and her team of outmatched outsiders return to face monsters, revenants and their biggest fears as they fight to take down the demon who cursed the Earp family before he destroys the Ghost River Triangle – and the world.
The end of Season 3 left our “Killjoys” scattered to the far corners of The J galaxy and beyond. Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) is on a journey to face her biggest foe yet, while D’av (Luke Macfarlane) and John (Aaron Ashmore) are trapped in an elevator in deep space with a pregnant Delle Seyah (Mayko Nguyen). They are united by the knowledge of the name of their true enemy: The Lady, an immeasurable manifestation of evil without beginning or end. The Lady is making her play, and our trio has something she wants.
This will be the fifth-year that SYFY has hosted “Sharknado Week,” the annual week-long event focused on all things shark and terror. This year’s lineup will kick off the first night with “Deep Blue Sea 2” and continue through the week with more action-packed, shark infested movies including “Nightmare Shark” and “6-Headed Shark Attack.” It all starts August 12th and culminates with the final movie of SYFY’s hit franchise, SHARKNADO 6.
In “Sharknado 6,” hero Fin (Ian Ziering) has already battled sharks all over the globe, but in this last installment he will also tackle time travel. In the ending moments of “Sharknado 5,” Fin was seen wandering alone on Earth after it was destroyed. Now he must travel back in time to stop the Sharknado that started it all. The network asks, “Will Fin and the gang be able to set everything right and save the world once and for all?” The new Sharknado movie was directed by Anthony C. Ferrante, and is based on an original screenplay by Scotty Mullen.
