We're barreling toward the end of 2021, and as the calendar draws to a close so do several fan favorite genre shows this week. From breakout sci-fi hits to horror favorites, let's break it all down.

The finale-heavy slate this week includes season-enders for SYFY/USA's Chucky and NBC's La Brea, plus the series finale of AMC's The Walking Dead event series World Beyond. Over on BBC America, Doctor Who wraps up its five-episode "Flux" event. It's not all finales, though, as Netflix is debuting the third and final season of fan favorite remake Lost in Space. Disney+ is also bringing that MCU magic, with a new episode of Hawkeye.

Digging deeper, SYFY has a new Day of the Dead, plus a fresh installment of Intergalactic. The CW has a new episode of The Flash (which marks the third installment of the "Armageddon" event, which brings Black Lightning deeper into the fold), and the network also has the DC's Legends of Tomorrow-inspired animated holiday special Beebo Saves Christmas. AMC has the midseason finale of Fear the Walking Dead and Netflix has a fresh batch of episodes for animated series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.
