Next Week in TV 5/31: The quest for fortunes with Trackers and Quiz

By DRWHO42 & Scott

June is just around the corner, which means the last vestiges of the traditional television season are coming to an end with the season finales of Legends of Tomorrow, Rick & Morty, and Killing Ever hitting this week.

The Star Trek-themed episode of Legends of Tomorrow was one of the highlights of the show’s current season, but fans will have a bit of wait until the series returns in 2021. Many can blame the ongoing pandemic for the long break.

Then we have HBO’s Vida and Netflix’s Fuller House saying adieu for good this week.

A new series hitting this week is Cinemax’s Trackers, which is an action-driven story centered on diamond smuggling and crime in South Africa. The international setting and theme of the series will offer something fresh and appealing to content-hungry viewers.

At this point of the year, the major networks shift to game shows in prime-time (as noted in the listing below), but we would like to recommend that you add AMC’s Quiz, which premieres this week, to your viewing list. Quiz, which stars Matthew Macfadyen (Spooks), Sian Clifford (Fleabag), and Mark Bonnar (Shetland, Humans), is a dramatization of the cheating scandal that engulfed Who Wants to Be a Millionaire game show in the UK in 2001. It will be interesting to see how the cheating plan was developed, executed, and discovered over the course of this new series.

Looking back to last week, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD returned in fine fashion for their seventh and final season. The writers made it a mission to have the team travel back in time to 1930s New York quite interesting thus far, and it is great to see the team in action again (yet we are still waiting to see where Fitz is, though).

That’s all for now, but do stay tuned for a second edition of our hibernation TV recommendation list coming out within the next few days. Until then, have a safe and amazing week!

New: Agents of SHIELD, Quiz
On-going: Stargirl, Snowpiercer, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, Motherland: Fort Salem, Line of Duty
