New SciFi TV Shows for 2019 / 2020

I’ve compiled a list of upcoming new scifi/fantasy shows beginning this Fall 2019 and beyond, sorted by channel and release date. This year is a bit disappointing save for a couple shows that look promising on ABC and a bit of a wait for Disney’s new streaming shows. Mark your calendars and/or DVRs and enjoy!

ABC:

Emergence – Tuesday, September 24 at 10pm
After Jo, a police chief, takes in a young child she finds near the site of a mysterious accident, she soon discovers the girl has no memory of what has happened or who she is. The investigation into the history that led up to the accident — and questions as to how and why it happened — draws the woman into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined, with the child’s identity at the center of it.

Stumptown (not scifi, but based off a graphic novel, so I’ve included it) – Wednesday, September 25 at 10pm
Based on the series of graphic novels by the same name, “Stumptown” follows Dex Parios, a strong, assertive and sharp-witted Army veteran who has a complicated love life, gambling debt and a brother to take care of in Portland, Ore. Her military intelligence skills make her a great private investigator, but her brash, unapologetic style puts her in a league of her own, landing her in the firing line of hardcore criminals while not quite in alliance with the rules and objectives of the local police.

CBS:

Evil – Thursday, September 26 at 10/9c
Evil is a psychological mystery that examines the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. The series focuses on a skeptical female psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a carpenter as they investigate the Church’s backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions and hauntings. Their job is to assess if there is a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.

While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights. Based on the Archie Comics characters.

NBC:

In this joyous and celebratory drama, Zoey Clarke is a whip-smart computer coder forging her way in San Francisco.

FOX:

neXT – 2020?
A brilliant but paranoid former tech CEO (John Slattery) joins a Homeland cybersecurity agent and her team to stop the world’s first artificial intelligence crisis: the emergence of a rogue AI with the ability to continuously improve itself. neXT examines how technology is invading our lives and transforming us in ways we don’t yet understand and also presents a villain like we’ve never seen before — one whose greatest weapon against us is ourselves.
