Looking for shows to binge-watch this quarantine period? Syfy has recently announced that it would be airing full-series marathons of Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica throughout the month of April.
All six seasons (134 episodes) of Xena: Warrior Princess will air on Syfy in the mornings and afternoons of every #ThrowbackThursday starting April 16th. Lucy Lawless, who plays the titular character, will provide host wraps for the marathons, which will be presented by Syfy Fangrrls and will also feature special surprise guest appearances. This marks the first time the fantasy series will air on Syfy.
Meanwhile, all four seasons (76 episodes) of Battlestar Galactica, including the two-part miniseries and movies Razor and The Plan, are scheduled to air in a nonstop three-day marathon starting April 20th at 12 a.m. ET through April 23rd at 9 a.m. ET. Tricia Helfer, who plays Number Six in the military sci-fi series, will host the entire marathon, which will be presented by Syfy Wire. The marathon is said to include custom content and special surprise appearances.
