From the return of a killer leprechaun to the season finale of a high-concept vampire saga, there's plenty to check out on TV this week. Oh, and as usual, a whole lot of superhero adventures, to boot.

Fox is wrapping up the first season of its midseason genre drama The Passage (ratings have been decent, but still no word yet on a potential renewal for a second season), while History has a new installment in its buzzy period drama Project Blue Book (which has already been renewed for Season 2). SYFY has new episodes of Deadly Class and The Magicians, as well as the network premiere of Leprechaun Returns, a revival sequel that pays homage to the original film run of the B-movie horror favorite.

Fresh off news that will be wrapping up with a shortened eighth season in the fall, The CW has new episodes across the board for the Arrowverse. The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Black Lightning all have new adventures set (fellow super-series Legends of Tomorrow returns from hiatus April 1). If you're still following along post-time jump, The Walking Dead is also new this weekend with Daryl and the rest of the survivors trying to figure out what to do about the Whisperers threat.

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