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 four series debuts (including Netflix’s adaptation of The Lincoln Lawyer, Tom Hiddleston and Claire Danes in Apple TV+’s The Essex Serpent, and Jessica Biel and Melanie Lynskey in Hulu’s Candy), nine returning shows (including revivals of The Kids in the Hall and The Quest) and six finales (including Call the Midwife, Naomi and Winning Time).
