TV THIS WEEK: 'Picard,' 'The Boys: Diabolical' & 'Outlander' premiere; 'Legends' finale; 'Resident Alien'

Whatcha looking for? Space adventures, alien wackiness, animated R-rated superheroes, time travel love stories? We got it all.

By Trent Moore

It's an absolutely loaded week on TV with several high-profile season and series premieres, plus a batch of Arrowverse finales to round things out.

We still have a while to wait until the proper third season of The Boys arrives, but in the meantime, the animated anthology spinoff The Boys Presents: Diabolical drops on Prime Video this week. Paramount Plus also has the return of Star Trek: Picard for its second season, which looks to be loaded with throwbacks to The Next Generation era. HBO Max also has its pirate comedy Our Flag Means Death premiering this week, which promises plenty of Taika Waititi weirdness. Last but not least, Starz has the new season of Outlander, which aims to take us through time and pull plenty of heartstrings along the way.

Digging a bit deeper, two Arrowverse series are also wrapping up their respective seasons, with DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman dropping finales this week. But don’t worry, there’s a new Superman & Lois and a new Naomi to keep the superhero action rolling. SYFY also has some new episodes on the docket, with both Resident Alien and Astrid & Lilly on the schedule.
