With February halfway done, spring is officially almost here in the US.
As for TV, this time of the year usually means the TV madness itself has begun. No, not March Madness, which is next month, but rather February’s continued onslaught of series premieres and finales.
On Sunday, Starz’s Outlander series, for example, will return to our timeline, thanks to the season five premiere airing at 8 p.m. ET. Fans can watch the premiere episode on the Starz app as of this writing.
Also on Sunday is 2020’s NBA All-Star Game on TNT, which tips off at 8 p.m. ET, as well.
On Epix, the series premiere of War of the Worlds will see the light of day at long last, and it will air at 9 p.m. ET. This brand-new series is a “reimagining” of the sci-fi classic.
As for the main event for this week, this Friday morning will see the return of a fan-favorite, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The seventh and final season will be on Disney+ itself, and this season will have 12 episodes, too. Overall, the ‘clankers,’ as well as our favorite Clones, heroes, and villains, are back!
Also on Friday will be the season one finale of DC Universe’s Harley Quinn, at 9 a.m. ET.
On Saturday, fans of either series can catch the twenty-seventh season premiere of Nickelodeon’s Power Rangers: Beast Morphers (8 a.m. ET), and the series debut of Cartoon Network’s Thundercats Roar (10:30 a.m. ET).
