From world-saving super-nuns to more time travel craziness on the outskirts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), this week brings plenty of cool stuff to keep us dialed in to the small screen.

Netflix is beefing up its wild genre game this week, dropping season runs of both Warrior Nun and the Japanese horror adaptation Ju-On Origins. Amazon Prime Video also has an A-list genre series returning, with action-thriller Hanna back for another season — while DC Universe and HBO Max have some fresh Doom Patrol this week.

Looking to network fare, ABC has a new episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., SYFY has a new installment of its con-inspired laugh fest SYFY WIRE's The Great Debate, The CW has a new Stargirl, AMC has a new NOS4A2 and TNT has a new Snowpiercer. There are also some movies hitting the dial, with acclaimed genre flick Annihilation on FXX, Jumanji: The Next Level debuting on Starz, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark hitting Showtime.

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