There's not a ton of fresh stuff as far as major premieres or finales this week, but there's still plenty of new stuff to check out. From superheroes to zombies, here's the full rundown.

The only big finale this week is Starz's mind-bending Counterpart, and the show is well worth a binge if you've never taken the plunge. The CW has a largely new run of Arrowverse shows, featuring Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Black Lightning. SYFY has new episodes of Deadly Class and The Magicians, while AMC is back with all new The Walking Dead (though you'll have to wait for those TV movies to see more Rick).

Fox has a new episode of The Passage, and NBC has a new Manifest, if you're game for some high-concept genre dramas. Fox is also barreling toward a Batman time jump with the final season of Gotham, which only has a few episodes left, and also has a new mission for The Orville.

There are also a few solid movies on the schedule, including Deadpool 2, Happy Death Day (to get primed for the sequel) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Check out our full rundown below.
