With most of The CW's schedule taking a hiatus during the pandemic, the network has pulled out the big guns to fill some dead air. That's right — the Crisis on Infinite Earths is about to reignite the war for the multiverse. There's also plenty more to watch, from Harley Quinn undercover to the launch of Quibi to some geek-tastic LEGO competitions.

The CW has laid out the Crisis crossover, which played out over five hours earlier this season, and will give it a redux this week for fans looking for some high-stakes sci-fi adventure to disappear into during prime time. The new streaming service Quibi is also launching this week, and there are a few genre-friendly projects worth checking out. HBO has a new Westworld, DC Universe has a new Harley Quinn, and NBC has a new Manifest. Meanwhile, SYFY has a new Vagrant Queen, plus a throwback marathon of Wynonna Earp's first season (complete with some commentary and fun from the cast and crew).

Plus plenty more: HBO has a new Plot Against America, The CW has a new Nancy Drew and Roswell, New Mexico, and Netflix is debuting its new family-friendly magical wrestling flick The Main Event. Check out our full rundown for the week below and let us know what you'll be watching.
