TV THIS WEEK: Fear the Walking Dead, NOS4A2 premieres; Cloak & Dagger, Happy! finales

Welcome to late spring, where the TV schedule gets a bit random as we fall out of fall and head toward summer — but don't worry — there's still plenty to watch.

AMC is bringing its A-game this week with the season premiere of Fear the Walking Dead (which will feature even more crossover action with the mothership series), as well as the series premiere of buzzy new horror drama NOS4A2. NBC is also premiering its new, off-season paranormal drama The InBetween, about a psychic who helps solve crimes. There are also some big finales this week, with Freeform's Cloak & Dagger, NBC's Blindspot, and SYFY's Happy! all calling it quits for the season.

Digging a bit deeper, ABC has a new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this week, while NBC's American Ninja Warrior premieres its new season (and yes, it's admittedly not genre, but it's still a lot of fun and in that action-y vein). Over at The CW, there's a new The 100, and CBS has a new Elementary.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you think.
