One of the most ambitious — and scary — shows in modern history is back with an all-new story this week, while a couple of fan favorites are calling it quits for good.

AMC's acclaimed historical horror series The Terror returns for its second season, with this year's story focusing on the internment camps used during World War II. Critics are raving, and the new season looks to live up to the lofty expectations set last year. Turning to finales, FX's cult hit Marvel series Legion is coming to an end, fresh off introducing its own twist on Professor X. CBS's long-running Sherlock Holmes adaptation Elementary is also wrapping up, with one more case on the books for old times.

Looking at the rest of the schedule, SYFY has new episodes of Killjoys and Krypton; NBC has The InBetween; AMC has new Preacher and Fear the Walking Dead; The CW has Pandora, Two Sentence Horror Stories, and The Outpost; and History has a new episode of The UnXplained.

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