TV THIS WEEK: Timeless and Final Space finales, Mark Hamill on Big Bang Theory and more

This week is light on premieres, but we do get a few season finales — including one geek-friendly sitcom featuring 100 percent more Mark Hamill than usual.

NBC's time travel adventure Timeless wraps up its second season with a two-hour finale that promises big stakes, big history, and big fun. No word on a renewal yet, so savor this one while it's here. Hamill leads a guest star cadre on the season finale of CBS's hit, geeky sitcom The Big Bang Theory. It might not be sci-fi, admittedly, but it can still kill it with the nerd-friendly appearances. TBS's animated sci-fi comedy Final Space also wraps up its first season, so if you've been looking to catch up, having the finale on tap should make this one perfectly bingeable.

As far as new episodes this week, there are a lot. The Flash introduces a whole lot more versions of Harrison Wells; Diaz comes for Oliver's family on Arrow; Supergirl is still battling Worldkillers; The Expanse continues its excellent third season; Krypton is digging deeper into its DC Comics connections; FX's Legion is as twisty as ever; Gotham is going all-in on its Joker mythology; and Fear the Walking Dead continues a surprisingly great renaissance in its new season. Plus a whole lot more.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you'll be watching.
