This week in television will have a respectable amount of content to choose from that should keep our marbles entertained for a little bit.
For instance, The Walking Dead TV universe welcomes Tales of the Walking Dead. Premiering on AMC at 9 p.m. Eastern tonight (Sunday), this new series will have an “Episodic anthology that follows individual characters from The Walking Dead TV universe, both new and old.” Lastly, do note that the series premiere is already on AMC+.
The HBO series Westworld wraps up its 4th season tonight (Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern), and while there has been no official word regarding a season 5, the blog undoubtedly believes a new season is coming. But of course, time will tell.
It is time to say goodbye to AMC’s Better Call Saul, thanks to its series finale hitting TVs at 9 p.m. Eastern on Monday night.
On Thursday, August 18th, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe returns for some season 3 adventures. Also, on this day is the Disney Plus series premiere of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Starring actress Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk, the lead character is an “Attorney specializing in superhuman-oriented legal cases—must navigate the complicated life of a single, 30-something who also happens to be a green 6-foot-7-inch superpowered hulk.”
For the kids, Marvel’s Spidey and his Amazing Friends are returning for some (animated) web-centric delight on the Disney Channel on Friday, August 19th, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.
As for everything else airing soon in the TV world, do not forget to look at the new listing below. You could find a gem or two, etc. Speaking of which, the blog strongly recommends that you see Prey on Hulu, especially if you like the Predator. The new movie is good, or dare I say, rad! *Wink* (If you did not know, Prey‘s director Dan Trachtenberg was on a video podcast show called The Totally Rad Show with Jeff Cannata and Alex Albrecht. The show was all about discussing the pop-culture world. Overall, this TRS fan is so happy for Trachtenberg for living his dream: becoming a film director.)
In some entertainment news, the Hollywood Critics Association (HCA) TV Awards winners have been announced, so click here to see who won.
Executive Producers of the animated series Harley Quinn believe a 4th season will be a go soon, but only time will tell with all the changes coming from the newly formed Warner Bros. Discovery. Meanwhile, The DC/HBO Max series Constantine is getting ready to begin filming in early 2023.
The BBC announced that the new series featuring Ncuti Gatwa as The Doctor will start filming this November.
Actor Simu Liu will guest star in an episode of The Simpsons 34th season.
And to make you feel older, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is now a 12-year-old movie…
