This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings and monthly guide to What’s on Streaming.
With nearly 500 scripted shows now airing across broadcast, cable and streaming, it’s easy to forget that a favorite comedy is returning, or that the new “prestige drama” you anticipated is about to debut. So consider this our reminder to set your DVR, order a Season Pass, pop a fresh Memorex into the VCR… however it is you roll.
This week, you’ll find 14 new and returning series (including the Sex and the City revival And Just Like That…, and the final season of The Expanse), 21 fall finales (including 9-1-1, NCIS and the #OneChicago trifecta), 15 season closers (including Fox bubble drama The Big Leap) and an assortment of films and specials (including Live in Front of a Studio Audience and The Housewives of North Pole).
