Next Week in TV 4/17: The Return of Fear the Walking Dead and Better Call Saul, Doctor Who Special, and More!

By Scott C. & DRWHO42

The week ahead is filled with everything for fans that fear zombies, like a particular Time Lord or troubled attorney, plus more!

Let’s begin with Sunday, April 17th, because this day has BBC America’s Doctor Who: Legend of the Sea Devils special airing at 8 p.m. Eastern. It will be Jodie Whittaker’s second to last special as the Doctor before the farewell tour is over. On AMC at 9 p.m. Eastern, Fear the Walking Dead returns to continue its seventh season. 

On Monday, April 18th, AMC’s Better Call Saul returns for a sixth and final season. Do note that the premiere will be a doubleheader.

On Tuesday, April 19th, the animated series Pacific Rim: The Black returns for a final second season on Netflix. FX’s Mayans M.C. returns for a fourth season, and the premiere will be two hours. The fun begins at 10 p.m. Eastern.

On Thursday, April 21st, the HBO Max series The Flight Attendant has returned from its first seasonal break for all of us to see its second season. At 9 p.m. Eastern, CBS’ Ghosts first season ends. 

On Friday, April 22nd, the Apple TV+ series WeCrashed wraps up its first season. 

As for everything else airing soon, do check out the new listing below. 

In some recent news, an overhaul of DC Entertainment looks to be in the works thanks to the Discovery and WarnerMedia merger officially done. In a GQ magazine interview, actor Kiefer Sutherland states that he wants to tackle 24‘s Jack Bauer again. Singer Billie Eilish and her brother will enter The Simpsons universe in the Disney Plus short called “When Billie Met Lisa” on April 22nd. Actors Robbie Amell, Meng’er Zhang, Christelle Elwin, and Hugh Skinner will all be in season three of Netflix’s The Witcher. Meanwhile, the official trailer for season four of Stranger Things came out last week, and you can watch it by clicking here.

Lastly, the world sadly lost comedian Gilbert Gottfried last Tuesday. Our condolences go out to his family.
