Though most network and cable shows are kicking later this month, October always sees the return of some series a little later in the fall season and this year is no exception. First up, via press release, HBO announced their drama series In Treatment will return to the air on Monday, October 25th with two back-to-back episodes kicking off the third season. Then Tuesday, October 26th will see two more back-to-back episodes as well. Gabriel Byrne will reprise his role as Dr. Paul Weston with new cast members like Debra Winger (Rachel Getting Married) and Amy Ryan (The Office, Gone Baby Gone) being tossed into the mix.
Details on SyFy’s returning series after the jump.
Originally slated for return in January, the second half of the first season of Caprica (the Battlestar Galactica spin-off series) will now come back much earlier with a debut on October 5th. The press release reveals, “The second half of season one will transport us from stunningly vivid, twisted Virtual realities to the fascinating outer worlds of the 12 Colonies. Along the way, revolutionary tensions rise, family power shifts and our characters grapple with the physical and emotional consequences of their questionable decisions.” Meanwhile, Sanctuary will return to its Friday timeslot on October 15th following Friday Night Smackdown. This will be the series third season.

NEW YORK – September 9, 2010 – The highly anticipated return of Syfy’s critically-acclaimed series Caprica will come even sooner than anticipated. The second half of season one will now premiere on Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at 10:00PM ET/PT, the channel announced today. Fans will no longer have to wait until January to watch the series exciting kick-off, as the citizens of Caprica deal with the chaotic aftermath of the mid-season finale’s harrowing events.
The second half of season one will transport us from stunningly vivid, twisted Virtual realities to the fascinating outer worlds of the 12 Colonies. Along the way, revolutionary tensions rise, family power shifts and our characters grapple with the physical and emotional consequences of their questionable decisions. As the season races towards its stunning conclusion, each episode lays the groundwork for the inevitable (and brutal) clash between the new Cylon race and its human creators.
“Though we initially announced the January return of Caprica, we still had hopes of finding a way to get the series back on the air sooner,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. “We’ve been able to successfully re-work our schedule, and are thrilled to bring the show back during what is traditionally Syfy’s most-watched time of the year. The outcome should also please fans who expressed their wishes for a shorter mid-season hiatus.”
Caprica stars Eric Stoltz (Daniel Graystone), Paula Malcomson (Amanda Graystone), Esai Morales (Joseph Adama), Polly Walker (Sister Clarice Willow), Alessandra Torresani (Zoe Graystone), Magda Apanowicz (Lacy) and Sasha Roiz (Sam Adama).
