TV THIS WEEK: Falcon and Winter Soldier, Snyder Cut, Resident Alien, Wynonna Earp & more

It's a big week for superhero programming, with Marvel taking us into the future with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier at Disney+; and DC restoring a relic of the past with Zack Snyder's four-hour cut of Justice League on HBO Max. If you're looking for something less super, we also have freaky horror, alien shenanigans, and a whole lot more.

Along with the flagship superhero stuff, this week also brings a couple of notable finales. Disney XD's beloved DuckTales revival wraps up its run with an extended finale; and Apple TV+'s positively freaky horror series Servant puts a cap on its second season. SYFY has new episodes of its hit alien comedy Resident Alien and fan favorite Wynonna Earp; NBC has a new Debris; and TNT has a new Snowpiercer.

The CW is also stacked, with new episodes of The Flash, Superman & Lois (which is gearing up for a hiatus soon), Black Lightning, Batwoman, Legacies, and Riverdale. Apple TV+ has a new For All Mankind, and AMC has more zombie adventures with The Walking Dead. If sports are more your thing, the NCAA basketball tournament also kicks off this week, so there will also be plenty of March Madness to go around.

Check out the full rundown below.
