All of the Summer Sci-Fi TV Premieres in 2016
Summer is finally upon us, and although our favorite fall shows have mostly come to an end, there are plenty of exciting new and returning shows coming in the next few months. Here are all of the sci-fi and nerdy shows coming this summer, from returning favorites like Mr. Robot to the most exciting new show of the season:


Preacher - May 22 at 10pm on AMC

This adaptation of Garth Ennis' beloved comic series is one of the most highly anticipated shows of the summer, and with good reason, because it looks absolutely insane in the best way. With The Walking Dead starting to dip in quality, another gritty, hyper-violent comic book show is just what AMC needs.

Powers - May 31 on The Playstation Network


Outcast - June 3 at 10pm on Cinemax

Another potential alternative to Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman has said that his new series, based on the comics of the same name, is "even scarier" than his wildly popular zombie show.

Voltron: Legendary Defender - June 10 on Netflix

This reboot of the classic 80's series looks to be a ton of fun, and boasts the voice talents of The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun. Who wouldn't want to watch Glenn ride flying robot lions to save the galaxy?

The Last Ship - June 12 at 9pm on TNT

BrainDead - June 13 at 10pm on CBS

This quirky series, which sees mind-controlling aliens take over members of Congress, has the potential to be either really great or really stupid, but since the Good Wife creators are randomly behind it, we're hoping for the former.

Zoo - June 28 at 9pm on CBS


Killjoys - July 1 at 9pm on Syfy

Dark Matter - July 1 at 10pm on Syfy

Mr. Robot - July 13 at 10pm on USA

This is by far the most exciting returning show of the summer. Mr. Robot defied all expectations and became a critical darling last year, and we can't wait to see where this conspiracy goes next.

Stranger Things - July 15 on Netflix

We don't know much about this new series, other than the vague premise of a child abduction in 80's Montauk that has some kind of sci-fi aspect to it. (That must mean aliens, right?)


The Strain - August 28


Luke Cage - September 30

This might technically be fall, but after the huge success of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, we're counting down the days until this one.
