Next Week in TV 9/18: Quantum Leap and Andor debut, Tales of the Walking Dead Finale

By Scott C. & DRWHO42 

The week ahead has a few things to prepare for like this Sunday’s Tales of the Walking Dead season 1 finale airing at 9 p.m. Eastern on AMC. Epix’s War of the Worlds returns to action at a new time which is 9 p.m.

Leaping to Monday, NBC’s reboot of the classic time-traveling series, Quantum Leap, debuts at 10 p.m. Eastern. Set 30 years after Dr. Sam Beckett’s adventures, this reboot is about Physicist Ben Song (Raymond Lee) and a team traveling through time to better understand the hardware, that allows one to travel through time.

On Wednesday, the next Disney Plus Star Wars series Andor finally debuts with 3 episodes. It focuses on the character Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) from Rogue One, which is set before that movie’s plot. We will get to see how Andor becomes the Rebel hero we saw in Rogue One. So far, Andor has gotten good reviews from the media. 

We have multiple Chucky specials highlighting the upcoming season (more details in the listing below). Also, do not forget to check out Transmute Jun’s recent Chucky article about season 2.
