The TVLine-Up: What’s Leaving, New and Returning the Week of May 12

This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings and our monthly breakdown of What’s on Streaming.

With over 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 more than two-dozen finales — including 19 season finales (such as Law & Order, Fire Country and X-Men ’97) and five series finales (R.I.P., Young Sheldon and So Help Me Todd).

If that’s not enough, the next seven days will serve up 10 returning series (including Bridgerton and Interview With the Vampire), and a smattering of award shows and primetime specials (including the Academy of Country Music Awards and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’s 10th Anniversary retrospective).
