TV THIS WEEK: 'Vikings Valhalla' hits Netflix, 'The 355' premieres on Peacock, 'Resident Alien' & more

Super-spies, vikings, aliens, zombies and more fill out this week's schedule.

By Trent Moore
Vikings Valhalla

This week brings us sci-fi comedy, some Game of Thrones-esque viking adventures, zombies and super-spy missions — not to mention a bunch of superheroes in-between.

Netflix has the premiere of its latest original series, the Vikings prequel series Vikings: Valhalla, which could definitely fill that Game of Thrones-y void while we wait for HBO to finally drop House of the Dragon later this year. Peacock has the streaming premiere of recent theatrical super-spy thriller The 355, and SYFY has new episodes of Resident Alien and Astrid & Lilly. AMC is back with more of The Walking Dead’s final season, and The CW has the Arrowverse back in service with Superman & Lois, Legends of Tomorrow, Naomi and Batwoman.

Digging deeper, TNT has a new Snowpiercer, Paramount Plus has a new Star Trek: Discovery, Apple TV+ has a new Severance, and HBO Max has a new Raised by Wolves. There are also some solid movies worth a look, including Blade: Trinity on SYFY, and Ivan Reitman’s early-2000s sci-fi film Evolution (which is a great Reitman feature to revisit).

Check out the full rundown below and let us know what you’ll be watching.
