Here is a collection of notes about upcoming genre TV series and mini-series as I find out about them. These are shows that will be appear on the traditional TV networks or online, and I'm only listing shows which are scheduled to premier in 2017, even if it's only loosely scheduled for sometime during the year. Anything without a premier date is in the TV & Online Under Development page.

This will be a continuously updated list, so expect changes and edits. I'll note changes in the blog. This list should be the latest public information.

They're sorted in order of premier date, and as always the definition of "genre" is up to me.
