Next Week in TV 3/13: Resident Alien and Star Trek: Discovery Finales, DMZ is Here

By Scott C. & DRWHO42 

This week gets rolling along after many in the US had to adjust their clocks, thanks to the lovely (not really) Daylight Saving Time saying hello again very recently. 

As bad as that sounded, fans won’t like the idea of knowing that Syfy’s Resident Alien series is hitting its spring break this Wednesday (March 16th). 

Star Trek: Discovery fans will also be dissatisfied knowing that the 4th season finale hits this Thursday (March 17th). Luckily, a fifth season is coming (hopefully) next year, so it is not all bad news? Regardless, work has begun for season five. 

Also, on Thursday is the HBO Max mini series DMZ. It stars Rosario Dawson and is based on the DC graphic novel of the same name. It is about “A dangerous and distorted Manhattan as one woman navigates a demilitarized zone in a harrowing quest to find her lost son.” But as with every new series, we are curious if DMZ will be a winner with audiences or not?

You are not satisfied with anything above, you say? Well, the listing below should help satisfy your watch hunger, because there are several more things to watch that was not mentioned. As always, happy watching!

In some entertainment news, fans of Amazon’s The Boys got a gift very recently in a form of a season three teaser trailer. As such, we recommend checking it out if you are a fan of the show. You can do so by clicking here. Season three arrives June 3rd on Prime Video.

The third season of The Umbrella Academy debuts on June 22nd on Netflix. 

Sesame Street star Emilio Delgado has sadly passed away. He was 81. 

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.
