The last week in television saw the spectacular series finale of Star Trek: Picard and an epic battle to cap off the third season of The Mandalorian. Of course, we will not spoil anything if you have not watched them yet, but we give them both glowing high marks.
The week ahead will feature the return of the mysterious and horrific series From, an international spy series bound to keep you on the edge of your seat, and a celebration of comedic legend Carol Burnett. (More details below.)
Starting the week is the second season return of From. The series, which centers on inhabitants who are (mysteriously) trapped in a weird pocket dimension, had a frightening twist on the Lost concept and was nothing short of surprises throughout the season. The trailer for the upcoming season looks promising in storytelling and will probably add more mysteries to uncover.
Wednesday evening NBC will air a star-studded special to celebrate the 90th birthday of comedy legend Carol Burnett. Also, later that evening is the return of the off-beat comedy series Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens.
Sweet Tooth returns for its second season on Thursday. And to cap off the week is the series premiere of the spy thriller Citadel, starring Richard Madden (Game of Thrones, Bodyguard, Eternals) and Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Amazon Prime.
In television news, Disney+ canceled the National Treasure series. Across the pond, the next season of firming for Doctor Who is well underway, and promotion pictures released this week showing Ncuti Gatwa (The Doctor) and Millie Gibson (Ruby Sunday) in 60s fashion are helping to build buzz that the future is bright for the series when it returns.
