Network TV and cable is a bit light this week, but don't worry, streaming services are more than ready to pick up the slack. From twist anthologies to bizarro superheroes, here's what's on TV this week.

One of the coolest shows you're possibly not watching, Doom Patrol, makes its eagerly anticipated return to DC Universe and HBO Max for Season 2. The show is bold, weird and fantastic, and Season 2 looks to keep up the action. Jordan Peele's CBS All Access revival of The Twilight Zone is also back with a fresh batch of morality tales this month, while Netflix is bringing Season 2 of its buzzy horror-ish import Dark back for another season.

There are also some big finales this week, most notably Starz's Penny Dreadful: City of Angels and Season 2 of DC Universe's Harley Quinn animated series.

Looking to general network fare, ABC has a new episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s final season; The CW has new Stargirl and The 100; TNT has a new Snowpiercer; and Fox has a fresh episode of the insanely fun Ultimate Tag. There are also plenty of movies hitting cable this week: Avengers: Infinity War on TNT, Tomb Raider on USA, and Doctor Sleep on HBO.

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