The TVLine-Up: What's Returning, New and Leaving the Week of Oct. 31

Doctor Who Season 13 Returns

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 a dozen returning series (including Animaniacs, Big Mouth and Doctor Who), five debuts (including Head of the Class and Highway to Heaven reboots, and “Judge Judy” Sheindlin’s streaming debut) and eight finales (including the very last episodes of Narcos: Mexico and Y: The Last Man).
