By Scott, DRWHO42, & Alyssa

As TV fans get ready for that big Game of Thrones battle episode on Sunday, April 28th. No one should forget about the other shows and here are the ones that caught the blog’s attention.

The second season finale of American Gods will air on Sunday (April 28th) at 8 p.m. ET on Starz. The series was renewed last month and Charles “Chic” Eglee (The Walking Dead, Dexter) will be the show’s new showrunner and executive producer.

Jumping ahead to Tuesday, April 30th, fans of The 100 can catch the sixth season premiere over on The CW at 9 p.m. ET. The series will get a seventh season, due to being renewed last week by the network.

The fifth season premiere of iZombie airs on Thursday, May 2nd at 8 pm. ET. Do note that this season will be the last for the series.

As usual, Friday continues to be the day to check out brand-new shows as well as movies, and all will go live on May 3rd.

Sadly, Santa Clarita Diet was recently canceled by Netflix after three seasons. However, The CW did renew Roswell, New Mexico, In the Dark, and All American last week. Lastly, according to Variety, the Bryan Cogman Game of Thrones prequel series was killed by HBO.
