TV THIS WEEK: Chucky and Day of the Dead on SYFY; La Brea, Just Beyond, Legends of Tomorrow & Fear the Walking Dead

By Trent Moore

If you're in the market for thrills and chills — and maybe a bit of time-displaced superhero action — this week has pretty much everything you could want. From Chucky to more from the Walking Dead franchise, let's dig in.

SYFY has a full slate this week when it comes to horror fare, led by the series premiere of the new Chucky series from franchise creator Don Mancini on both SYFY and USA. The cast and creator were on hand at New York Comic Con last week for the world premiere and to set up the season, and fans went bonkers. SYFY also has the premiere of the new Day of the Dead series, along with the premiere of slasher reboot Slumber Party Massacre.

If you're looking for some scares that are a bit more family-friendly, Disney+ has the premiere of its new R.L. Stine-inspired anthology series Just Beyond, which has a real Twilight Zone vibe. The CW has the season premiere of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, which picks up with the team trapped in the 1920s (get a full breakdown on Matt Ryan's new character and the season to come right here). The flagship The Walking Dead series might be on its midseason hiatus, but Fear the Walking Dead returns this week with a brand new season to fill the gap.

NBC has a new episode of breakout sci-fi hit La Brea; The CW has the season finale of Roswell, New Mexico, plus new Batwoman and Supergirl; Apple TV+ has new episodes of SEE and Foundation; Peacock has a new Lost Symbol; and HBO Max has fresh installments of Doom Patrol and Titans.
