Legend Quest – Series Premiere Wednesday, July 13 at 10 p.m. – The fast-paced action-adventure series follows Ashley Cowie, an archaeological explorer and expert in ancient symbols, as he travels the world in search of some of history’s greatest and most mysterious artifacts. From King Arthur’s famous sword Excalibur to the coveted Holy Grail, all of the elusive items are believed to hold hidden powers and mystical significance for ancient and modern cultures. With Indiana Jones-type adventure and Da Vinci Code-style puzzle solving Cowie and his team leave no stone unturned as they hack through dense jungles, squeeze through tiny caves and trek through forbidding deserts to find their next clue.

In the premiere episode, Ark of the Covenant/Mayan Talking Cross, Ashley and the team travel to Ethiopia, Italy and France in search of the famous Ark of the Covenant, believed to have the power to defeat any army and strike enemies with bolts of lightning.

Haven – Friday, July 15 at 10 p.m. – Last season, when FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) arrived in the town of Haven, Maine on a routine case, her knack for unraveling mysteries proved an asset when she discovered that the seemingly sleepy town was, in fact, a longtime refuge for people with supernatural afflictions. As the second season unfolds, Audrey must not only stay on top of Haven’s many afflictions, but she must also solve her most challenging case yet: the secret of her own lost past and its ties to Haven. With the help of Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant), a handsome local cop with his own trouble, and Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour) a local smuggler and reluctant aide in solving Haven’s troubles, Audrey digs deeper into uncovering her identity. Guest stars Jason Priestley (who will also direct an episode) and Vinessa Antoine join the cast for the new season, currently in production on 13 episodes in Nova Scotia.

Super Eruption – Saturday, July 16 at 9 p.m. – In the Syfy Saturday Original Movie Super Eruption, a section of the super volcano under Yellowstone erupts after thousands of years, putting millions at risk.
