TV THIS WEEK: Westworld finale; Supergirl's Crisis fallout; Blindspot returns; Amazon's Upload

It's a stacked week for premieres and finales, ranging from network and cable TV all the way over to streaming. We have sci-fi comedies with AAA pedigree, the end of Westworld (for now), plus a whole lot more.

The big story is the season finale of Westworld, which wraps up its excellent third season on HBO. Thankfully, the show has already been renewed for Season 4. Amazon Prime also has a splashy premiere this week with Upload, which stars Robbie Amell (Code 8) and focuses on a sci-fi afterlife. It was also created by comedy legend Greg Daniels (you know, one of the masterminds behind The Office and Parks and Recreation). NBC has the premiere of the fifth season of long-running mystery thriller Blindspot, AMC is wrapping up the first season of its mysteriously weird Dispatches From Elsewhere, and The CW's Charmed is casting its final spell of the season.

Beyond all the premieres and finales, though, there's still plenty of other stuff to dig into. Most of the Arrowverse is new this week, including The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman and Supergirl. Supergirl's latest could be the juiciest, focusing on some lingering Crisis on Infinite Earths fallout regarding Lex Luthor. DC Universe has a new Harley Quinn, Disney+ has a new Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and FX has a new What We Do in the Shadows. If you're looking to go old school, CBS is reviving its Sunday night at the movies with Raiders of the Lost Ark.

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