By Trent Moore
Marvel's What If...?

This week is absolutely loaded with big premieres, serving up everything from grim dark superhero action, reality-busting Marvel adventures, Star Trek comedy and more. Let's dig in.

Marvel is debuting its latest Disney+ series with the multiversal adventure What If…? and Fox is kicking off its reimagining of the genre-friendly thriller Fantasy Island. Digging a bit deeper, HBO Max has the season premiere of Titans (the show's third proper season, but first to debut on HBO Max); Star Trek: Lower Decks debuts its second season of animated hijinks and Paramount Plus; and The CW has the second season of its small town superhero series Stargirl, plus Season 2 of Wellington Paranormal.

Outside of the premieres, Disney+ has the season finale of Star Wars: The Bad Batch (which was recently renewed for a second season). Digging deeper we also have a new episode of SYFY's SurrealEstate; a new American Ninja Warrior on NBC; Fox has a fresh LEGO Masters taking on weather-based challenges; Disney+ has a new Turner and Hooch; and The CW has a new DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
