Next Week in TV 11/28: The Final Countdown for Lost In Space!

By DRWHO42 & Scott C.

The week ahead on television is filled with interstellar adventure and a Christmas delight featuring Beebo from Legends of Tomorrow. This week will also feature several fall finales starting with Fear of the Walking Dead and The Equalizer.

The limited-run The Walking Dead: World Beyond wraps Sunday evening. We look forward to the next chapters in The Walking Dead universe.

As we enter the month of December and the holiday season, there is plenty of holiday and family programming to enjoy. There are several options this week, including Annie Live on NBC this Thursday evening. Also, fans of the Arrowverse will rejoice this Wednesday evening with the one-hour special featuring our favorite fictional toy, Beebo, in Beebo Saves Christmas. We can only hope that the folks at The WB will release a product line of toys and dolls for fans to enjoy. Both Harry Potter fans and families will also enjoy the Hogwarts Tournament of Houses game show hosted by Helen Mirren. The trivia-based series will pit two teams against each other in all things Harry Potter and the Wizarding World.

Netflix is ramping up the releases of great content this week with the third (and final) season premiere of Lost in Space. This final installment of the Robinson family’s space adventure concludes spectacularly with stunning visual effects and a strong character-driven story. Be on the lookout for our upcoming article on the series, which includes an interview with the cast. Also debuting this week is the final chapter of Money Heist. But there is also the companion series Money Heist: From Tokyo to Berlin to keep things going for you.

NBC’s La Brea wraps its first season, and fans of the series will be happy to know that it will be back for a second season. This renewal also signals to those that have waited to watch the show that they can begin binging on season one. 

Chucky, on the USA Network, wraps its first season this week.

As always, the times and dates of everything mentioned above, or those that were not, tv fans will be able to find the information they seek in the listing below. 

Lastly, in television news, the BBC announced the first of three specials that will lead up to Jodie Whittaker’s departure from the role of the Doctor in Doctor Who in the autumn of 2022. Mark your calendars for January 1st as the date for the Doctor Who Holiday Special episode. In the meantime, Doctor Who: The Flux has been filled with surprises, revelations, and intense cliffhangers. Now, this is a season-long story, so you better get your butt going in watching the ongoing season. The conclusion to see how everything comes together will wrap up soon.

That’s all for this week. As always, please let us know what you will be watching when visiting the FoCC forum. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Of course, happy Thanksgiving!
