Red Notice Netflix

Netflix is debuting arguably its most star-studded film of the year this week while plenty of other genre shows roll out across the dial. Not to mention a Marvel fan favorite is taking the reins at Saturday Night Live this weekend.

The new action heist flick Red Notice starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot makes its debut on Netflix. Critics have been fairly mixed on the film, though it should still check those throwback action movie boxes for a lot of fans. SYFY has a full slate, with the premiere of the event series Intergalactic (which is also streaming on Peacock), plus new episodes of Chucky and Day of the Dead.

NBC has a new La Brea, plus Jonathan Majors makes his SNL hosting debut, fresh off his breakout gig as He Who Remains on Disney+'s Loki (he's also playing Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania). HBO Max has the season finale of Doom Patrol and Disney+ is celebrating the anniversary of the service with Disney+ Day, which promises some fresh Marvel and Star Wars reveals (though we don't have many details on that just yet).

Digging a bit deeper, Peacock has a new The Lost Symbol; The CW has new super-shows including DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman and the series finale of Supergirl; BBC America has a new Doctor Who; and AMC has new episodes of Fear the Walking Dead and World Beyond.

Check out the full rundown below.
