"Haven" returns July 15 with its much-anticipated Season 2 on Syfy.
Based on a short story by Stephen King, "Haven" was really one of Syfy's only recent shows to survive its initial run (with shows like "Caprica" cut down in its first season, and "Stargate: Universe" abandoned in the second).
The show stars Emily Rose as Audrey Parker, who finds there is a lot of mystery in the sleepy town of Haven, Maine. Parker not only has to continue investigating various inflictions by the townsfolk, but also her own mystery and connections to the town.
Joining the series this season is Vinessa Antoine, who most recently played Judith Winter in "Being Erica."
Both "Warehouse 13" and "Eureka" have spent years pulling in record numbers to Syfy on Summer Tuesday nights. Now they'll just have to do the same thing on Mondays.
The two popular shows move back a day when they premiere new seasons July 11.
"Eureka" returns for the back half of Season 4 at 8 p.m. as the town where geniuses thrive continues to recover from the major timeline changes caused by the trip back to 1947. However, an "accident of astronomical proportions" moves the town to one of its most ambitious projects yet, causing the town to rally around its scientists. But nothing is always bright, as some local secrets begin to emerge.
On "Warehouse 13," which begins its third season at 9 p.m., the agents are still reeling from the sudden departure of Myka (played by Joanne Kelly). Yet Artie (Saul Rubinek) wastes no time in bringing a new agent to the fold, Steve Jinks, played by none other than Aaron Ashmore of "Smallville" fame. And he has a talent that will keep you honest.
Making its series premiere right after "Warehouse 13" at 10 p.m. is "Alphas," a team of ordinary citizens with extraordinary mental and physical abilities. Sound a little like "Heroes" or "X-Men"? Maybe, but it's a bit of a cross between the two.
Like both, the Alphas are normal people trying to figure out new abilities. But like "X-Men," they work together as a team. And it's all done under the leadership of Zak Penn (writer of the upcoming "Avengers" movie directed by Joss Whedon) and Star Trek alum Ira Steven Behr.
The cast is really a lot of unknowns, except for David Strathairn who has appeared in a number of television shows and movies including "The Bourne Ultimatum" and "A League of Their Own." The series also stars Malik Yoba, Warren Christie, Laura Mennell, Ryan Cartwright and Anita Ghanizada.
Syfy also has a huge number of reality shows on the schedule, including new series "Haunted Collector" and "Legend Quest." Returning are "Hollywood Treasure" and "Ghost Hunters International."
