9/8c Fear the Walking Dead (AMC)
If you’ve been on the fence about resuming Fear the Walking Dead, you should probably tune back in.

10/9c Debris (NBC)
Bryan and Finola were separated on Debris Season 1 Episode 9, and in the second part of their current adventure, they aim to reconnect.
That’s made particularly difficult as they’re living in two different realities, but with the fabric of the universe quickly deteriorating, there is hope as they can communicate through the tear.
What would Bryan’s last words to Finola be if he were never to see her again? It looks like we’re about to find out.

9/8c Supergirl (The CW)
In the second half of the two-parter episode, we finally see young Kara come face-to-face with kryptonite for the first time.
It will most likely come when she’s saving Nia and Brainy from the aliens who took them.
But the question of whether or not they’ll be able to get what they need to save Kara from the Phantom Zone in the present might be up to Cat Grant.
9/8c Cruel Summer (Freeform)
This sudsy Freeform drama is heating up with Kate stunned by the news of the lawsuit.

Thursday, May 6
9/8c Legacies (The CW)
After another hiatus, all eyes are on this once-hot drama to see if it can recapture some of its former magic.
We have a good set up in a new villain, especially with Hope and Landon’s locks being stolen.
What will become of them? Will we finally get some clarity?
8/7c Walker (The CW)
Does anyone else get the impression that Stella will get herself into a heap of trouble with Trevor’s dad?
And since Walker himself is dealing with his kiss with Geri, he might be missing some warning signs, if there are any.
Is Geri someone we want Walker to be kissing? I guess all will be revealed on the next episode.

The first generation of superheroes has kept the world safe for nearly a century. Now, their children must continue their legendary ideals.
