There's a lot to watch this week, but arguably the biggest story is the arrival of the latest Marvel series on Disney+: Loki, will be twisting all kinds of craziness into the MCU. But that's not all!

Along with the series premiere of Loki, this week also brings some major season finales with NBC's Manifest wrapping up its current season with a two-part finale; and AMC's Fear the Walking Dead winds down its current season with a whole lot of post-apocalyptic storylines coming to a head. Not to be outdone, Netflix has the premiere of new genre thriller Awake, set in the wake of a worldwide event that takes away humanity's ability to sleep and causes almost everyone to go crazy.

Digging deeper, The CW has a boatload of new episodes on the schedule, led by a new episode of The Flash that will feature the exit of longtime co-star Carlos Valdes (aka Cisco). Plus new episodes of breakout hit Superman & Lois, Batwoman and more. Disney+ has a new Star Wars: The Bad Batch, and CBS has a new Clarice. On the reality-ish side of things, NBC has a new American Ninja Warrior and Fox has a new LEGO Masters.

Check out the full rundown below!
