We have aliens, zombies, and sci-fi futures.

Harry Vanderspeigle is going on a bit of a break this week, but don't worry, there's still one more wild Resident Alien episode to go until the SYFY hit takes a mini-hiatus until the summer.

Resident Alien is dropping its midseason finale episode, while fellow SYFY series Astrid & Lilly has a new episode this week. NBC has the premiere of genre-friendly sitcom Young Rock (a semi-fictionalized account of Dwayne Johnson's life, told from the future - trust us, it makes sense), and HBO Max has the series premiere of the long-awaited new sci-fi series DMZ. AMC has a new episode of The Walking Dead, which is rolling through its final season before setting up all kinds of spinoff series.

Digging deeper, The CW has a new episode of The Flash, Paramount Plus has a new installment of Star Trek: Picard, and Apple TV+ has the latest episode of its tech thriller Severance. There are also plenty of good movies on the dial, with SYFY airing xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Rambo: Last Blood and a few Harry Potter movies.
