This week, Syfy debuts its new zombie show Z Nation, set three years into the apocalypse, and brings back Haven with a new Audrey personality and a new set of Troubles. Plus, Teen Wolf gets ready to end its season—but who will survive? Get all the details below!

Teen Titans Go! (6 PM, Cartoon Network)

We go back to the beginning of the Teen Titans—and Robin tries to relive those early days:

The Quest (8 PM, ABC)

In the two-hour season finale, a champion will be crowned:

The Paladins have arrived at the end of their journey and the moment of truth is at hand, but first, these remaining contestants must face a new enemy, in the final two episodes of the season of "The Quest," airing THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network. The stakes reach a new height in "Escape from Rana Village" when the Paladins are taken prisoner. They must act quickly in order to save themselves and the Queen (Susanne Gschwendtner). Ultimately, only one is safe from the Fates leading to their most emotional banishment yet. The final episode begins with only three Paladins left and Verlox's (Douglas Tait) growing power. The final challenge puts the Paladins to a demanding test. After the grueling competition, the quest is complete and "One True Hero" has emerged. The celebration is short-lived and our "Hero's" work is not finished—Verlox must be vanquished.

Haven (10 PM, Syfy)

In the fifth season premiere, the co-author of the Troubles is still in control of Audrey's body:

Still marginalized by Thackery, Edwards attempts to improve on a hernia surgery. Everett (Eric Johnson) and Eleanor fear for their baby's health; Cleary and Sister Harriet visit Chinatown.

Z Nation (10 PM, Syfy)

This week, Syfy brings us a new zombie show, and if we're to believe the teasers, it has a very different tone from The Walking Dead:

In Z Nation, three years have passed since the zombie virus has gutted the country, and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world's last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind's survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.
