TV THIS WEEK: The Walking Dead finale; Happy!, What We Do In the Shadows, Knightfall premieres

By Trent Moore
What We Do in the Shadows FX

From NSFW imaginary friends to Mark Hamill's return to the small screen, it's a big week in TV. Oh, and that's not even mentioning more Lex Luthor and the season finale of the post-Rick Walking Dead.

Taika Waititi's U.S. version of his cult hit vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows makes its debut on FX, along with the second season premiere of the wildly inappropriate Happy! on SYFY. The second season of History's Crusades-era drama Knightfall also premieres this week, featuring a story refresh that introduces a mysterious new character played by a bearded Mark Hamill.

Along with the big premieres, we also have an A-list season finale as The Walking Dead closes out its controversial ninth season, which brought some major cast shake-ups and an even bigger time jump. Digging a bit deeper, Supergirl looks to finally face off with DC stalwart Lex Luthor; Arrow continues to march toward its final season; and Venom makes its pay cable premiere on Starz, in case you're looking to revisit the weirdness.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you'll be watching this week.
