Next Week in TV 12/7: Buh-bye Zombies and The Trollhunters return

By Mario Wario, DRWHO42, & Alyssa

Ah, here we are! A brand new week filled with so many shows to see on TV and of course, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is also happening in the world of cinema. But our main focus for this article is television and boy, if thought last week had a lot of finales well get ready…this week has even more! For example, according to our math, the total number is 40. Crazy, right?

So, let’s get this rundown going!

On December 10, we are sorry to say this Outlander fans, but your favorite television series will be having its third season finale on STARZ. We know, where did the time go for this season? Onward to AMC, The Walking Dead and The Talking Dead shows will be going their annual mid-season breaks. So, no zombie fun for the holidays after this week. Meanwhile, the Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, and Family Guy, each Fox series will be entering their Fall breaks as well. However, if you want to see some crazy random stuff, how about checking out the ninth season premiere of Robot Chicken on Cartoon Network. You can’t go wrong there.

Moving on to December 11 … AMC’s Comic Book Men and Fox’s Lucifer and The Gifted, all three will be entering their mid-season breaks just like everything else has been lately. Only Secret History of Comics (AMC) will be doing the finale tick for its first season. As for December 12, nine shows on different networks will be showcasing their Fall finales, so do check out the list (down below) to see if one of your favorite series will be hitting the beach for a little bit.

As for the next day, the season four premier of the Librarians on TNT will be embarking on a new journey to fight evil and to protect those relics! But it should be noted that the wait to get to this new season was really long, or rather torturous. The last episode that aired this year was in January! Of course, the other shows highlighted in red: Riverdale (The CW) and Designated Survivor (ABC) are both saying, “See you later!” for the holidays. But Mr. Robot (USA) will be shutting down for now as the third season finale will be attacking us all on this day. By the way, NBC will be having a two-hour Golden Globe special if you want to see new interviews remembering past moments from this award show, which will be celebrating its 75th anniversary in January. So, get ready because the award season will be here before you know it!

Meanwhile, the fourteenth is on the lighter side of things in the world of television, but do check out the list to see what is happening for that day. Moving right along to the fifteenth, ABC’s Once Upon a Time is going on hibernation for the Fall while Fox’s Exorcist is saying goodbye to its second season. Likewise, for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency on BBC America.
