Next Week in TV 6/12: Evil Returns, and Dark Winds Debuts!

By DRWHO42 & Scott C.

The week ahead may appear a little light with few new additions to the lineup; however, there are plenty of great content to watch, like Star Trek: Strange New WorldsThe BoysMs. MarvelObi-Wan Kenobi, and Stranger Things season 4. 

Sunday (June 12) kicks off the week with mixtures of lights, glamor, demonic possession, and crime. For instance, if you are a fan of Broadway, clear your plans Sunday evening (8 p.m. Eastern on CBS) for the 75th Annual Tony Awards. 

We shift gears a little bit to the supernatural side of things. The surprisingly intriguing series, Evil, returns for its third season on Paramount+ on Sunday (out now). The series, starring Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Katja Herbers, Aasif Mandvi, and Michael Emerson (Lost, Person of Interest), centers on a team investigating demonic possessions and other supernatural events for the Catholic church. The series will follow a weekly release format, similar to other series on the streaming platform.

Also, Sunday evening (9 p.m. Eastern) is the debut of Dark Winds on AMC, which takes over Sunday evenings in place of Fear the Walking Dead. The series, set on a Navajo reservation in the 1970s, focuses on two officers investigating a double homicide. Challenges await them as they face their spiritual beliefs during their investigation.

If you are looking for a period drama, we recommend adding Becoming Elizabeth, also debuting Sunday evening (9:04 p.m. Eastern) on Starz. The series featuring Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife) and Alicia von Rittenberg as a young Queen Elizabeth I, it is set not long after the death of Henry VIII. Plus, her political and, sometimes dangerous, path to become queen.

If you are looking for a modern-day mystery series set in Ireland, we recommend adding Redemption Tuesday (around 3 a.m. Eastern) on Britbox. The limited series, comprising six episodes, stars Paula Malcomson (Ray Donovan) as a detective called back to Ireland to solve a murder to which she appears to be mysteriously connected.

There are a few season finales this week, including Kung Fu, Mayans M.C., and Tehran. Unfortunately, Legacies will wrap up its 4th and final season this week, since The CW has elected to cancel the series. The times for each series is listed below in the listing. 

Lastly, television news has been pretty tough these past few weeks with the high number of cancellations announced. We are happy to say that the series news was much better last week with the announcements of the second season renewal of Tokyo Vice and the fourth season renewal of The Boys. (Oh, yeah!!)

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