If you’re looking for superheroes, we’ve got that — and if you’re looking for a few good scares, we’ve got that, too. There's plenty to choose from on TV this week.

The CW’s Arrowverse is pretty much all new across the board, led by new episodes of Flash, Supergirl, Arrow, Batwoman, and Black Lightning. The Crisis on Infinite Earths is coming soon, and there’s a lot of adventures left to get us there. If you’re looking for something a bit creepier, CBS’s Evil has its Halloween episode, FX has a new American Horror Story, and AMC has a fresh episode of The Walking Dead. It’s not exactly horror, but HBO’s Watchmen has a new kick-off episode that looks to be plenty dark.

Digging deeper, there’s a new episode of Van Helsing on SYFY, USA has a new Mr. Robot, and the final season of NBC’s The Good Place continues to roll along. The CW also has new Riverdale, Nancy Drew, and more.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you’ll be watching.
