If you're a fan of adult animated genre fare, this is a good week for TV — but that's far from the only thing on the dial.

Hulu is dropping Season 2 of its hit original animated sci-fi series Solar Opposites, while Amazon Prime has the first season of its adult superhero series Invincible, which is adapted from the long-running Robert Kirkman comic series. If you're jonesing for more superhero action, there's plenty to go around, led by a new episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+. The CW also has new episodes of The Flash, Superman & Lois and Batwoman (which is rolling out some wild new twists).

Digging deeper, NBC's buzzy mystery series Debris has a new episode, and AMC has a new installment of The Walking Dead, which looks to move the big story forward with a new community on the verge of entering the fold. Hulu has the season finale of its horror anthology Into the Dark and SYFY has new episodes of both Resident Alien and Wynonna Earp

Of course, plenty of programming will also be dedicated to March Madness this week if you're a college basketball fan. Check out the full rundown below and let us know what you'll be watching.
