Next Week in TV 4/30: April Ends, but May Begins!
By Scott C. & DRWHO42
A new month begins this week, and it is May!
As such, this time of the year, you will usually see several series wrapping up their current seasons or for good. For instance, The Good Doctor, The Rookie: Feds, Will Trent, The Conners, The Goldbergs, and Call Me Kat all wrap up their current seasons. Of course, more shows are wrapping up this week, and the week’s listing below will help you out with most of your television needs.
On May 4th, also known as Star Wars Day, fans of the franchise will see the return of Star Wars: Visions and the debut of the kids-friendly animated series Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures.
Premiering on Apple TV+ this week is Silo. Starring Rebecca Ferguson as Juliette, the new series is about the last few trying to survive in a silo with murders and lies running rampant inside. Juliette, however, will try to find some answers for one particular murder during the craziness. Of course, like with any new series, we hope this one is good!
Quickly in some news: The Last of Us season two should begin production in a few months, according to Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin. The final season of Netflix’s Top Boy premieres sometime in September and Twisted Metal debuts on July 27th on Peacock.

This five-part limited series imagines the behind-the-scenes story of how Nixon’s political saboteurs, E. Howard Hunt (Woody Harrelson) and G. Gordon Liddy (Justin Theroux), accidentally toppled the presidency they were zealously trying to protect… and their families along with it. Chronicling actions on the ground, this satirical drama begins in 1971 when the White House hires Hunt and Liddy, former CIA and FBI, respectively, to investigate the Pentagon Papers leak. After failing upward, the unlikely pair lands on the Committee to Re-Elect the President, plotting several unbelievable covert ops – including bugging the Democratic National Committee offices at the Watergate complex. Proving that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, White House Plumbers sheds light on the lesser-known series of events that led to one of the greatest political scandals in American history.
