TV THIS WEEK: Gotham, The Orville and Supernatural finales; new Game of Thrones

We'll go ahead and get it out of the way — Avengers Endgame opens this weekend, so you'll probably want to get your TV watching in before heading to the theater to see it a few (thousand) times. That said, there's plenty of great TV to check out if you're looking to avoid the packed crowds.

The time has finally come: Fox's Gotham is saying goodbye, with a series finale that jumps a decade into the future to give fans a look at how this Gotham City will look with a bona fide Batman roaming the streets. Continuing the finale theme, The CW's Supernatural and Fox's The Orville are both wrapping their seasons up this week. Supernatural is already renewed for another (final) season, though The Orville is still on the bubble. So, hopefully this won't turn out to be the series finale, too.

Looking a big deeper, the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones soldiers on, ABC debuts a new documentary looking back at the women who made the moon landing possible, and there's a whole lot of new Arrowverse stuff to check out.

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