Next Week in TV 10/4: Zombies Galore, The Doctor Goes Animated, The Boys Leave, and Supernatural Returns!

By Scott C. & DRWHO42

October is officially here and Halloween will be here before we know it! This time of the year also (usually) signals the bombardment of series and season premieres, as well as some finales.

For instance, The CW’s Pandora and Epix’s Britannia both welcome new second seasons on Sunday, October 4th. (The times are listed in the listing below.)

The Walking Dead television universe welcomes another new television series that is based in the zombie world, and it is called The Walking Dead: World Beyond.  You can catch it on October 4th (10:06 p.m. ET on AMC). Before that series premiere, however, The Walking Dead‘s true season ten finale finally airs at 9 p.m. ET on AMC. Production delays caused by the ongoing pandemic is the reason why for the postponement. Also do not forget to catch Talking Dead right after both Walking Dead shows. The time is 11:21 p.m. ET.

On Tuesday, October 6th, Amazon has a new movie to check out titled Black Box. This sci-fi movie is about a single father having an experimental treatment that leads to memory issues and life troubles. As such, this concept has the blog’s attention, so hopefully, this movie is a good one!

Also, on Tuesday is the series premiere of Fox’s Next series at 9 p.m. ET. It is about a Silicon Valley pioneer, Paul LeBlanc, discovering that his own A.I. system called NeXt might be thinking about harming the human race later. (It sounds a lot like Skynet from the Terminator franchise.) Anyway, it is up to the creator himself to stop it, yet that task will not be an easy one.

On Wednesday, October 7th, The Doctor gets animated in a BBC America special called “The Faceless Ones.” Once thought gone by many, the long-lost 1960s story got completed thanks to old (salvageable) audio recordings and footage, using animation. More episodes also air on Thursday, October 8th. This week’s listing below has the times listed.

Star Trek: Lower Decks enters spacedock this Thursday morning, once its season one finale is done airing on CBS All Access. Lastly, Supernatural‘s finale season continues on The CW at 8 p.m. ET this Thursday.

On the morning of Friday, October 9th, Amazon’s The Boys series leaves town for a bit with its season two finale airing on this day. Likewise, with Rewind: Inside The Boys after show.

That’s all for this week. So, what are you watching? Let us know when visiting the FoCC forum!
