One of the coolest, demon-killingest shows on SYFY comes to an end, but don't worry, there are plenty of new shows looking to get off the ground this week.

SYFY cult hit Wynonna Earp wraps up its network run this week, and the network is also dropping new episodes of animated shows The Pole and The Summoner. On the premiere front, The CW's Kung Fu debuts this week, along with HBO's new Joss Whedon-(less) fantasy series The Nevers and the Amazon Prime horror anthology THEM. If you haven't checked out The New Mutants yet, it's also premiering this week on HBO Max.

Digging a bit deeper, NBC has new episodes of Manifest and Debris; Fear the Walking Dead is back from its midseason break on AMC; The CW has new Supergirl, Batwoman and a Flash that sends half the team back to the '90s; and Disney+ has a new episode of its MCU series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Netflix is also dropping a big one this week, with the premiere of its superhero comedy flick Thunder Force, starring Melissa McCarthy.
