To put it simply, it's a big week. From zombie crossover episodes to the return of a SYFY staple, there's a whole lot to watch over the next several days. So fire up that DVR and make sure you're good to go.

One of the biggest events will find Morgan making his jump from The Walking Dead to Fear the Walking Dead as the flagship series wraps its latest season and Fear kicks off a heavily retooled run with an expanded cast and apparent time jump. On SYFY, the acclaimed space opera The Expanse returns for its third season, plus there's a new episode of the Superman prequel Krypton.

The CW is also bringing the heat, with the season finale of Legends of Tomorrow, the return of Flash following a brief hiatus, a new Black Lightning, and a new Arrow. There's also a new episode of The Terror on AMC, a new Timeless on NBC, a new The Americans on FX, a new Gotham on Fox, and a whole lot more.
