May continues to roll along, and so do the finales. Yet a few notables will be going against the trend.
The week sees the 8th season premiere of Fear the Walking Dead airing on AMC (Sunday at 9 p.m. ET), and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania finally debuts on Disney Plus (Wednesday around 3 a.m. ET) after being in theaters earlier this year.
The remake of White Men Can’t Jump premieres on Hulu (Friday around midnight ET), and exactly like the original 1992 movie, it centers on two guys teaming up to earn some extra cash by playing street basketball.
As for the rest of the week, finales galore! For instance, the 9-1-1 and Law & Order shows, True Lies, Mrs. Davis, Young Sheldon, Grey’s Anatomy, S.W.A.T., and more are ending their current seasons on their respective networks. For more information about the discussed, and for the other upcoming finales/premieres, the week’s listing below will help you with your small-screen watching!
In some recent news, plenty of series got hit with the cancelation bullet, like True Lies, Kung Fu, Walker: Independence, Call Me Kat, Fantasy Island, and The Winchesters. Plus, Big Sky, Alaska Daily, The Company You Keep, and The Goldbergs.
S.W.A.T. was initially canceled by CBS; however, the network had a change of heart: the show will get a final 7th season.
A few shows are still in limbo, though: Gotham Knights, Superman & Lois, Young Rock, The Conners, as well as The Rookie: Feds. Overall, we recommend clicking here to view the Entertainment Tonight cancellation/renewal list. It gets updated regularly once news drops.
Doctor Who fans got a new online trailer recently, which revealed new footage and the three titles for the upcoming specials. You can click here to see the latest trailer.
The writers strike, meanwhile, is still ongoing. Thus, the Tony Awards may either get delayed or not be televised on June 11th.
