Next Week in TV 5/15: The Time Traveler’s Wife Debuts, Plus it’s Finale Time!

By Scott C. & DRWHO42 

Another week in television is upon us, we will see the debut of one HBO drama series and lots of season finales pumping the week.

But let’s begin with the HBO series The Time Traveler’s Wife, which will be debuting on Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern; this season has 6 episodes. This science fiction/drama series stars Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones, Death on the Nile), and it is a time-traveling love story. The series is based on the book of the same name, and this HBO series will be the second adaptation of the franchise, while the first one was the 2009 movie. That starred Rachel McAdams (Doctor Strange: in the Multiverse of Madness) and Eric Bana (Star Trek).

Looking at Thursday, May 19th, the Paramount+ series Halo encounters its first season finale around midnight Eastern. The series has taken a different approach in telling the Halo story that fans have known since 2001. As one could expect, not every fan is enjoying the new take on the Halo franchise. Yet for those enjoying the series, Halo will be getting a second season.

Sticking with the finale theme, the rest of the week sees a ton of season and series finales hitting our televisions. Do look at the listing below for a complete rundown.

On Friday, May 20th, Disney Plus has the live-action and CG animated movie Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. In it, Chip and Dale must reunite after 30 years in order to solve a mystery and to save their friends.

In some small screen news, The CW’s ongoing project Powerpuff Girls show is being worked on still, while the network’s Legacies, 4400, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, and Naomi series, and more have met their ends. Hulu’s MODOK is also canceled after 1 season, NBC’s The Endgame ends after 1 season, and Jack Ryan‘s fourth season will be it for the Amazon series.

An Alan Wake series is being worked on by AMC, while the first Resident Evil trailer was released by Netflix last week. Resident Evil will premiere on July 14th, 2022.

The Marvel Studios and Disney Plus show Ms. Marvel will be available on the streaming service on June 8th, 2022. It will also debut in Pakistani cinemas on June 16th, with the first two episodes combined. Other future episodes will get the same treatment as well on different dates.

Lastly, Stranger Things 4 had its world premiere on Saturday, May 14th, at the Netflix Studios Brooklyn, New York location. Do note that volume one debuts on Netflix on May 27th (that is the same time that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series debuts on Disney Plus), while volume two is on July 1st. Fans of the series can expect 9 episodes.

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