This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings and monthly guide to What’s on Streaming.

With more than 530 scripted shows now airing across broadcast, cable and streaming, 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 11 returning series (including black-ish, The Conners, Unsolved Mysteries and The Voice), four finales (including The Third Day and Lovecraft Country) and myriad films and specials (including the Borat sequel, a Bruce Springsteen documentary and the start of the World Series).
