It’s almost of the most wonderful TV time of the year! While fall is big on broadcast network premieres, April is actually my favorite because it means Outlander, Orphan Black and Game of Thrones are back! Yes, it’s time to catch up on other shows because life is about to go on hold.
The Walking Dead finishes up this season with a giant-sized 90 minute finale. This past episode basically left everyone in peril so let’s see if 90 minutes is enough to wrap up the introduction to Negan and Daryl’s fate. You’d think that they wouldn’t dare kill off Daryl, but Norman does have another show in the works.
(Relax, it’s a reality show with him and his motorcycle.)
Other shows are also signing off for the season including My Life in Pieces, Shades of Blue, You, Me and the Apocalypse, Shameless, Hollywood Game Night, 11.23.63, Shadowhunters, Baby Daddy and Young and Hungry. Whew!
American Crime Story: People vs. OJ Simpson will also rest its case this week. This series has been terrific and will surely be showered in nominations during Emmy season. Well, maybe not Cuba Gooding Jr, but Sarah Paulson and Courtney B. Vance are terrific.
But it’s not all farewells this week! Archer is back and so is SNL with Peter Dinklage and musical guest Gwen Stefani.
The Powerpuff Girls are back after years of being away. Things look a little different this time around. Hmm….
Banshee is also back, but only for a short time since this is the final season.
