Next Week in TV 5/1: The Picard, Moon Knight, and Outlander Finales, and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Debuts!

By Scott C. & DRWHO42 

May is officially here, but the week ahead has a decent amount of geeky content to watch; there are a few of them standing out from the rest. 

This Sunday evening (9 p.m. Eastern on Starz), the sixth season finale of the hit time-traveling drama series Outlander hits televisions and mobile devices everywhere. As for the seventh season, meanwhile, four episodes that would have been in season six will be carried over to next season. Yes, fans can blame the pandemic for this. But at least production has already begun, which is good news, but a premiere date for season seven is still unknown. Hopefully, the wait is not too bad because the wait for season six was longer than usual, thanks to the pandemic butting in. Lastly, the upcoming season will be based on the book Echo in the Bone

The middle of the week (Wednesday, May 4th) sees the Moon Knight finale airing on Disney Plus around 3 a.m. Eastern. Of course, will this series get a second season like Loki got, get a movie like Falcon aka Captain America is getting, or nothing at all but guest starring in other Marvel Studios properties? Only time will tell, but hopefully fans will find out soon!  

Star Trek dominates this week with the Star Trek: Picard season two finale and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds premiering, both happening around 3 a.m. Eastern. Picard is getting a third season, and it will have the rest of The Next Generation crew back together in action. Strange New Worlds, meanwhile, its second season is already in production. Lastly, our very own Miclpea will have a couple of Star Trek articles to check out, and we strongly recommend that you do, and they will be out soon!

As for everything else airing soon, do not forget to look at the listing below.

In some entertainment news, fans of Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman got hit with some bad news last week. Sadly, both shows have been canceled by The CW. Thus, the Arrowverse now has The Flash and Superman & Lois left, while Stargirl‘s third season will debut later this year. The Flash does have another season coming, while Superman & Lois does too, yet it sure feels like these three series are on their last legs.

That is all for now! Of course, let us know what you will be watching when visiting the FoCC forum. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
