Next Week in TV 11/24: Celebrate Thanksgiving With The Irishman

By Scott, DRWHO42, and Alyssa

With Thanksgiving only a few days away here in the U.S., it is time to be thankful that we are living in a world in which we can watch our favorite TV series/movies with ease. Our televisions (along with your streaming or cable plans) are a gateway to fun and entertainment.

Sunday will see the dead go into hibernation, thanks to the fall finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead airing at 9 p.m ET. Right after that, the fall finale of Talking Dead airs at 10:20 p.m.

On Wednesday morning, Netflix‘s The Irishman debuts on the streaming service for all to see. The movie stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. It is about hitman Frank Sheeran (played by De Niro) who looks back at the secrets he kept while being part of the Bufalino crime family. This film has a 96% ‘fresh’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The three-and-a-half-hour movie had a limited release earlier this month in the U.S., although more theatrical markets around the world and in the U.S. will be getting the film.

On Friday morning, DC Universe will debut the series premiere of Harley Quinn. This animated series is about the character’s quest to make it on her own in Gotham City, while bumping into some ‘old friends’. Do note that Kaley Cuoco voices Harley Quinn while Alan Tudyk lends his vocal talent for the Joker. The brand-new series airs at 9 a.m. ET.

Also airing on DC Universe on Friday morning will be the second season finale of Titans. But do not worry Titans fans, the series itself was officially renewed a few weeks ago, and the third season will air in fall 2020.

Fan of Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy? If so, the blog is here to remind you that the first season finale is airing on Saturday at 9 a.m. ET. (As for everything else airing soon, do check the listing below.)

As always, do let us know what you will be watching when visiting the FoCC forum. Have a great and happy Thanksgiving!
