The broadcast times for the episodes are Mondays at 12:30 AM ET, 3:00 AM ET, 7:30 AM ET, 5:30 PM ET and 9:00 PM ET. These first six episodes will be airing over the course of three weeks with back-to-back airings. This means the season will move at a much faster pace, allowing for bigger story arcs to weave together more easily, but will see the end of the series come more quickly.
Monday, November 13 will be the last new episode of the series airing this year, with a brief hiatus lasting through the holiday season. The series is expected to return for its final episodes early in 2018.0comments
