By Trent Moore
For All Mankind Season 2

The big premiere this week takes us back to the alt-history of the Space Race with the Season 2 premiere of the Apple TV+ original sci-fi series For All Mankind. We have competing lunar bases and a whole new Cold War brewing.

Beyond For All Mankind's return, this week also brings plenty of new episodes across the board. SYFY has new installments of breakout hit Resident Alien and animated comedy Devil May Care; CBS has a new Clarice; Disney+ has a new WandaVision that's sure to leave our minds blown; and The CW has a whole batch of new episodes, led by a new Batwoman and Black Lightning.

Digging deeper, TNT has a new Snowpiercer, The CW has a double header season finale of anthology scare-fest Two Sentence Horror Stories, Nickelodeon has a new episode of its second run of the Are You Afraid of the Dark? revival, and Fox has new episodes of animated staples The Simpsons and Family Guy. If you're getting pumped for the return of The Walking Dead later this month, AMC also has a special preview for the six new episodes coming to wrap up Season 10.
