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

With nearly 500 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 series debuts (including the new CSI, the Emily Osment sitcom Pretty Smart and an adaptation of the popular YA book One of Us Is Lying), 12 returning series (including Nancy Drew and Young Sheldon, and the very last episodes of On My Block) and 13 finales (including Animal Kingdom, Billions and Ted Lasso).
