Next Week in TV 11/17: The Queen has returned to Netflix

By DRWHO42, Scott, and Alyssa

Hear-ye, Hear-ye … The Crown is returning this week to Netflix with a new cast to accommodate a time jump in the storyline. This third season will feature a stellar cast lead by Olivia Coleman, and will also feature Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter, and Gillian Anderson. Another highlight this week is the return of our favorite “fixer” Ray Donovan.

It you were a fan of Mad About You, rejoice because Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt are back for a revival of the series this week on Spectrum.

Looking back to last week, the launch of Disney+ dominated business news but it did not come without a few technical glitches. Once all of the launch day excitement died down the positive reactions to The Mandalorian took over social media, and coffee bar chats. In other news, we also learned from set reports that CW’s Arrow and NBC’s Blindspot have concluded filming on their final episodes. The final season for Blindspot airs in the summer of 2020.

This week starts the wave of fall finales with How to Get Away with Murder, as well as Chicago Med, Fire, and PD all heading into their winter breaks. We will feature a few goodbyes with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Poldark taking their final bows.

What will you be watching next week? Do let us know when visiting the FoCC forum, and we hope you all have a great week ahead!
