On TV this Friday: Syfy cracks open a barrel of Monkeys, I Love Lucy gets colorized (again) and class is in session for the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar:
Kimmy Schmidt Returns, 12 Monkeys Binge and More
Docuseries premiere (all seven episodes): Hoping to elicit even a modicum of the response received by Making a Murderer, this series delves into the decades-old, unsolved killing of a Baltimore nun. (Watch trailer.)
Season 3 premiere (first four episodes): Cole searches for Titan amid the apocalypse of 2163, encounters a dangerous group of time-travelers in post-WWI France and splinters to 2007 in a last ditch effort to kill The Witness. (Episodes 5-7 air Saturday; episodes 8-10 air Sunday; read preview.)
Season 8 finale: In this alleged “celebrity” edition, restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson goes undercover to poach new culinary talent. (View CBS’ fall schedule.)
The Toy Box
Season 1 finale (two episodes): The finalists from each episode return, as the young judges determine which toy is going to be made by Mattel.
After receiving a terrifying message, Vincent teams with Haley and Freya to stop The Hollow once and for all. (Is The Originals on The CW’s fall schedule?)
RuPaul's Drag Race
The queens write and star in their own TV pilots, to be judged by The Real O’Neals‘ Noah Galvin. (Say, maybe he can co-star!)
The New I Love Lucy Superstar Special
Two (colorized) episodes: In “Harpo Marx,” Lucy and the titular comedian partake in a classic mirror routine. Later, Lucy is joined by Van Johnson in “The Dancing Star.”
Darnley teams with John Knox to dethrone Mary, which results in the demise of a close friend; Charles takes a stand against brother Henri.
Season 2 finale: An elderly dog reflects on his life and gives out sage advice; teenage rats ponder what’s to come after high school graduation. (Get renewal status.)
