When one show ends, another begins.

Goofy fan favorite Arrowverse hit Legends of Tomorrow wraps up its second season while the USA series Colony also comes to an end. However, The CW's iZombie makes its undead return this week, along with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (after an extended hiatus).

We also have new episodes of Bates Motel, The Expanse, Blindspot and The Americans. A bit outside the genre, Prison Break also comes back for its rebooted season, featuring some stars who should be very familiar to Arrowverse fans.

Here's our full breakdown. Kick back and set your DVR accordingly.
