ATLANTIS follows DOCTOR WHO 50th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL in BBC America’s biggest Supernatural Saturday ever!
BBC AMERICA’s Supernatural Saturday brings the iconic lost city to life in a new 13-part fantasy-adventure series, Atlantis. When Jason (Jack Donnelly, Dancing on the Edge) sets out to find his father, he could never imagine his journey would lead to a strange, yet impossibly familiar land full of dangerous creatures, legendary heroes and palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants – the ancient fabled city of Atlantis.
Creator, writer, and executive producer Howard Overman (Misfits), on the series:
"It is both a privilege and a delight to have the opportunity to take audiences on a journey into the fantastical world of Atlantis. Drawing on the Greek Myths for inspiration, we aim to tell classic, action adventure stories in unexpected and exciting ways."
Atlantis premieres Saturday, November 23, 9:00PM ET/PT following the encore broadcast of Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor, as part of BBC AMERICA’s biggest Supernatural Saturday ever.
Hey Guise! Incase you missed it, here’s the trailer for Atlantis which premieres after the encore broadcast of ‘The Day of the Doctor’ at 9pm ET on November 23rd on BBC America.
'in short' version: livetumbling / happy us / sad brits / everyone happy soon / go follow our new tumblr.

Yes, we’re still a week behind the UK (for now) but that also means we’re not going through withdrawal and putting up posts like this (yet):
(Don’t worry British subjects — it’ll be ok. We swear!)
No one should fear the break for the break is when the fandom becomes our own. In fact, hide yo dashboards b/c we will probably be posting just as much as we normally would. Who fandom knows no seasons.
We are going on an adventure and we want you to come along. We want to:
Speaking of the break: we have one more announcement to make: BBC America has seen the awesomeness that is the tumblr community and have given us the keys to run another blog: Supernatural Saturday on (tumblr!) This tumblr will (obvs) mostly be about Science Fiction shows on BBC America but we will also post about the best of scifi in other places including movies, books, console games, and other fiction of speculative nature.
Because they’re premiering the Battlestar Galactica miniseries this evening (one of the other greatest shows of all time, imo) SNS(t) is all about BSG today. Please check out our post on why we think BSG was one of the greatest things on television when it premiered.
Oh yeah, and for those asking why BSG is running on BBC America, it’s because Jamie Bamber is secretly British:
So see you tonight for ‘A Good Man Goes To War’ and see you this summer both here on DWOfficial and on 'Supernatural Saturday'.
