The TVLine-Up: What's Leaving, New and Returning the Week of Aug. 18

Pose - Season 2

This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings.

With nearly 500 scripted shows now airing across broadcast, cable, streaming and whatever “BitMovio” is, it’s easy to forget that a favorite comedy is returning, or that the new “prestige drama” you anticipated is about to debut. So consider this our reminder to set your DVR, order a Season Pass, pop a fresh Memorex into the VCR… however it is you roll.

This week, you’ll find 12 premieres (including 13 Reasons Why and The Righteous Gemstones), 15 season — and series — finales (including Pose and Baskets) and so much more.
