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 13 returning series (including a revamped Blacklist, more Locke & Key and the highly anticipated start to Succession Season 3), eight series debuts (including the spooky Girl in the Woods, hip hop drama Queens and extraterrestrial epic Invasion) and nine finales (including American Horror Story, Titans and Only Murders in the Building).
