We might all be stuck inside living our best self-isolation life, but that doesn't mean there's not plenty of stuff on the small screen to keep us distracted in the meantime. From the premiere of a buzzy new SYFY series to a couple of high-profile finales, here's what we'll be watching on TV this week...

The big story is the premiere of SYFY's new space adventure Vagrant Queen, based on the comic of the same name. The series has a real Killjoys/Farscape vibe to it and looks to be one of the few new shows hitting amidst the coronavirus panic. As for big finales, Star Trek: Picard is wrapping up its first season (but don't worry, it's already been renewed for Year 2) and Project Blue Book has its last case of Season 2 this week.

Outside of endings and beginnings, there are also some great shows right in the middle of their runs. We have a new episode of Westworld, which recently returned for its third season, plus a new episode of The Walking Dead (which is still dealing with the aftermath of that shocking death). If you're looking for something a bit more super-heroic, Supergirl and Batwoman are both new this week (though The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow are on a brief, sudden hiatus for a few weeks).

So find a comfy spot on the couch, set your DVR, and dig into our full rundown below.
