Next Week in TV 5/3: The long goodbye for Blindspot

By DRWHO42, Scott, & Alyssa 

We have crossed over into the month of May and there is a lot of excitement building up for May 4 (Star Wars Day), as well as for Cinco de Mayo. Star Wars fans should be thrilled with the addition of Rise of Skywalker to the Disney+ library this Monday. If you are looking to fill the gap in time before the second season of The Mandalorian, Disney+ has an exciting new documentary series debuting this Monday that focuses on The Mandalorian series itself, and it is titled Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian. Lastly, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will sadly end its run this week.

If you are looking for something to keep you on the edge of your seat for this week, AMC’s reboot of Creepshow is a perfect option to add to your viewing list. Based on the preview trailers this reboot looks very promising, so give it a watch.

Blindspot returns for its fifth and final season this Thursday night, and the new season picks up right after the explosive season four cliffhanger. The team this time will be on the run while trying to clear their names.

9-1-1 kicks off a two-part season finale on Monday with the return of Connie Britton. Also this week, there are a number of season finales hitting this week starting off with Westworld, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Good Girls, All Rise, The Conners, Bless This Mess, Mixed-ish, Black-ish, and Riverdale.

Until then, May the Fourth (as well as the Force) be with you!
