The Arrowverse continues to roll along, and though most of the superhero shows are new, we'll keep the spotlight on the OG series this week.

Arrow is bringing back longtime co-star Willa Holland, aka Thea Queen, for one last adventure in the show's final season. The Flash, Black Lightning, Batwoman and Supergirl are also new this week as the entire multiverse keeps marching toward the Crisis. Beyond the super-shows, A&E's Ghost Hunters revival digs into its final case of the season, while HBO is rolling out a new episode of Watchmen. AMC has a new episode of The Walking Dead as the Whisperer war is on the verge of sparking right back up into an undead rumpus.

Digging deeper, NBC has a new episode of The Good Place, USA has the Bourne spinoff Treadstone and The Purge, The CW has Riverdale and Nancy Drew, and TBS has an airing of It: Chapter One on Halloween night, in case you're staying in and looking for some scares.

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