It's been a long few months, but the walkers are back in action — and the Whisperer War is still waiting on the horizon. AMC's long-running horror hit The Walking Dead returns for the back half of its 10th season, as it barrels toward all out war and the eventual departure of Danai Gurari's Michonne.

Most of the Arrowverse is also new this week, with The Flash finally introducing Sue Dearbon; the Legends of Tomorrow heading back in time to take on Marie Antionette; a new villain in Gotham on Batwoman; and Mxyzptlk is back causing trouble on Supergirl. Fox has a new episode of LEGO Masters, with the contestants tasked with completing real-life objects that have been cut in half. And on a new Doctor Who, the Cybermen finally return to cause all kinds of trouble.

Looking further, there's a new Manifest on NBC, a new Charmed on The CW, a new Outlander on Starz, a new The Outsider on HBO, and a whole lot more. Check out the full rundown below and let us know what you'll be watching.
