The CW is hitting its midseason stride this week, bringing back two fan favorites set to roll us through the summer doldrums. Oh, and of course, there’s a new Game of Thrones this week as the end draws near.

Both The 100 and iZombie return to The CW’s schedule this week, and the Arrowverse is also new across the board (led by the present-day return of Roy Harper to Team Arrow). Digging a bit deeper, SYFY has a new Happy!, Freeform has new episodes of Shadowhunters and Cloak and Dagger, and AMC has new Killing Eve and Discovery of Witches. Of course, pretty much everything is eclipsed by the latest Game of Thrones, and just two episodes remain after this one.

We’ve also cherry-picked a few good genre movies hitting basic cable this week, including one that’s definitely worth a rewatch.

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