Next Week in TV: 6/7 – Finale season begins

By Alyssa and DRWHO42

As we enter into the month of May we also begin to see our favorite series wind down or wrap up their seasons. This week is the first big wave of finales and there is little in the form of new series to mention with the exception of Netflix’s Anne, the rebooted Ann of Green Gables, and the second season of Netflix’s Master of None. In the realm of finales highlights of this week are the finales for The Big Bang Theory, Last Man on Earth, Black-ish, and Riverdale.

Looking back at the last week American Gods impressed many of us with its premiere episode. There is a lot to this series and we will be providing weekly recaps by our very own Miclpea (click here for the recap and review of Episode 1).   

The network Upfront Presentations will be held mid-May and leading up to this event the renewal and cancellation news will start picking up traction. Please be sure to check out our TV Renewals thread (click here) as well as our Cancellation thread (click here) on the FoCC forum for the latest updates. We are posting updates there as soon as we receive the news.
