Lilo's Lair #28: Some of the Best Upcoming Science Fiction and Fantasy TV Shows. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

Who loves tv shows? I usually don’t bring up my love of tv because my addiction to them is almost shameful. I especially love science fiction and fantasy series. Those are by far my favorite genres when it comes to most things–tv, books, movies, games, my intense fantasy life I dream up in my head.

Now that summer tv shows are dwindling down and the new season approaches, I’ve been keeping my eyes open for science fiction, and fantasy tv shows to replace the ones that are going to end soon. What I found was some really great ones, most of which are, coming out this fall. Here are the upcoming science fiction and fantasy shows that look the most promising!


#1 Inhumans

First up is a Marvel universe show! Inhumans are a super human race in the Marvel comics. Inhumans as a whole live longer than humans, are stronger, faster, and have better endurance. They also have specific powers gained from modifications and/or exposure to the Terrigen Mist, which mutates their genes and sometimes gives them super powers.

ABC has now made a television show all about the Inhumans, and it starts airing September 28th! Also, that premier will be a double feature with them airing the first two episodes of the season. Why they are likely doing this is because they shot the first two episodes entirely for IMAX. Those episodes are combined as a single feature and showing in IMAX theatres right now!


#2 Krypton

This show is all about the Superman’s home planet Krypton. It is set two hundred years before Superman. The show follows the story of Superman’s grandfather Seg-El as he tries to gain honor for his house–the House of El–after losing respect and being ostracized.

This is going to air on the SyFy channel but unfortunately no time soon. At first, their teaser trailer said 2017, but that has now been amended to 2018. Hopefully, that means it will be early 2018!


#3 Van Helsing

I’m sure many are aware of the tale of Van Helsing, the vampire hunter who’s character was first created in the classic novel Dracula. This character is nearly as popular as Dracula himself and keeps popping up in tv shows and movies. Sometimes more like the aged scholar from the book, and sometimes a younger muscled fighter who’s job is killing vampires on a daily basis. In this Syfy version, the world is overrun with vampires, and we follow the granddaughter of the original Van Helsing.

SyFy’s Van Helsing is not a new series. The first season came out last year and if you missed it (like I did) or want to see it again then head on over to Netflix, where they have the entire first season available for streaming. The second seasons will start October 5th on SyFy. Here is the trailer for the first season:


#4 Stargate Origins

Stargate!! Not sure about you guys but I have seen and love the original Stargate movie. Which is why I’m so excited about this Origins tv shows. It will serve as a prequel to Stargate SG-1 and follows the daughter of Professor Langford–the man who discovered the Stargate in 1928.

This tv show has no current release date, but the teaser says it will be this year. Stargate Origins will only be available digitally on Stargate Command–which is a paid for subscription site made by MGM.


#5 The Gifted

This is another Marvel universe and is specifically related to the X-Men series. The tv show follows the life of a family with two human parents and two mutant kids. The family is forced to go on the run from the government and eventually becomes part of an underground community of mutants who are fighting for survival.

This show will air on the FOX network starting October 2. I love me a good Marvel mutant story, and I like the premise of this one. It shows some of the things X-Men talks about, but we don’t see (the government hunting down mutants, including children).


#6 Star Trek: Discovery

A new Star Trek show! This series is set ten years before Star Trek: The Original Series. This show is about the Klingon T’Kuvma as he tries to unite the great 24 Klingon houses. This leads to a cold war between Klingons and the United Federation of Planets. Which–as you may have guessed–involves the crew of the USS Discovery.

This show will begin airing on CBS September 24th.


#7 Dark

Dark is creepy and certainly looks like a supernatural horror. This is a German Netflix show that revolves around the disappearance of two young children. The search for answers leads to exposed secrets of four families living in the town. It’s hard to see where this story is going exactly, but it is listed as a supernatural tv show, and I’m looking forward to how it unfolds.

Netflix will release the show sometime this winter. This show is in German with English subtitles.


As you can see there are plenty of science fiction, and fantasy tv shows to pick from coming up this fall and even a few to look forward to later this year and next year. This isn’t even the whole list, but just the ones that I think might be some of the best.

    They say we’re in the golden age of television series. While movies are getting stale and more predictable, television shows are covering so much ground and have enormous followings. Inhumans kinda looks like a ripoff of X-Men, but who knows maybe it will gain momentum.
