The year of final seasons forges on, as this week Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s third Emmy-factory heads into its seventh and ultimate campaign on HBO. That season opener will be preceded by second season return of the story of a slightly less sociopathic human — a reluctant hitman who [SPOILER ALERT] may or may not have killed his best friend’s girlfriend. Speaking of grim, we check back on the four colonies after the gruesome discovery outside the fair. Also, Ruth Wilson plays her grandma, witches be witchin’, and Kardashians are on the loose. It’s still more comforting than 2019’s reality.
Barry [HBO, 10p]
Barry is back! The people he killed aren’t, and life (acting class, organized crime, hiding who you really are) is only getting more complicated from the hitman who just wants to act.
Veep [HBO, 10:30p]
The seventh and final season opens in Iowa as Selina is back in her original habitat — running for office. Even as reality has become satire, this comedy still has bite thanks to the absurdly plausible characters who populate her staff.
The Walking Dead [AMC, 9p]
After last week’s shocking ending we are sure in for one hell of a season finale. Will Carol go full badass revenge mode? What will the different communities reaction to what happened be? Where’s Negan in all of this? Find out tonight.
Charmed [The CW, 9p]
Harry has to go in front of the counsel and face punishment for his “unsanctioned relationship” with Charity and for putting the charmed ones at risk. Mel has even more drama as Niko comes back into her life to ask for help with a difficult case.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- Fresh off her critically lauded stage performance as both Cordelia and Fool to Glenda Jackson’s King Lear, Ruth Wilson takes on a different sort of challenging role as her own grandmother after she finds out after becoming widowed in 1963 that her husband hid a trove of secrets. Mrs. Wilson hits PBS as part of Masterpiece tonight.
- Same timeframe, same country, same channel — Call The Midwife returns for its long awaited eighth series tonight.
- If you have been Keeping Up With The Kardashians, let us know, because we’d love to know what to write tonight for its 16th (really?!?!) season debut on E!
- Meanwhile America’s favorite alt-comedy hillbillies go animated on Netflix with the debut of Trailer Park Boys: The Animated Series. We’re hoping they get to meet the Harlem Globetrotters and solve mysteries at some point.
