TV THIS WEEK: Game of Thrones returns, God Friended Me finale, new The Orville and more

By Trent Moore
Game of Thrones Season 8 Bran

Sure, there's a lot of good stuff to see on TV this week — but most folks only care about one thing. Winter isn't just coming anymore, it's finally arrived. The eighth and final season of HBO's Game of Thrones begins this week.

HBO has kept the details under wraps (to the point we don't even know the title of the season premiere), which has only worked to ratchet up expectations for the final face off between the living and the icy, icy dead.

Outside of Thrones, though, there's still plenty to see. CBS is wrapping up the first season of its drama God Friended Me, while Fox's The Orville is back in action following a brief hiatus. SYFY has fresh episodes of Happy! and The Magicians, and Freeform is digging deeper into the comic canon with its Cloak & Dagger series. If you're looking for Arrowverse action, Legends of Tomorrow is new this week. The CW also has more alien adventures with Roswell, New Mexico.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you'll be watching this week. Aside from Game of Thrones, of course.
