Premiere Week for the new Fall TV season is behind us now and New York Comic Con is kicking off today, so a proudly geekfest themed review seems perfectly in order for our determination of what is the show you have to watch this week.
Admittedly, unlike some weeks, there’s also a fine plethora of contenders to select from, all with superpowers of their own in one way or another – as you can see in my video review above.
In fact with a trio of veterans back in the saddled and Gotham set newbie in the ring, at least a couple of this week’s best of the best will be at NYCC over the next few days with the likes of the world premiere of HBO’s Watchmen and a sneak peek at some AppleTV+ shows like For All Mankind from Outlander EP Ronald D. Moore.
Peaky Blinders is distinctly not a presence at NYCC this year. However, back for a fifth season that has already aired in the UK, the Steven Knight-created and Cillian Murphy-led saga of the Thomas Shelby run crime family is certainly right in the thick of it with its October 4 launch on Netflix.
With the clan boss now a powerful Member of Parliament, the six-episode season steps into the quicksand of the Great Depression, the swamplands of politics and the forming fascist forces swirling around the beginning of the 1930s.
Politics and other forces also swirl around the fourth and final season of Mr. Robot, which debuts on USA Network on October 6. Back after a two-year absence from the small screen, the Sam Esmail created series steps back to 2015 with star Rami Malek as tormented hacker deluxe Elliot Alderson. This 13-episode last hurrah of sorts also sees the Oscar and Emmy winner joined again by Golden Globe winner Christian Slater, FBI agent portraying Grace Gummer, Portia Doubleday and Carly Chaikin.
Over at NYCC, long time alum The Walking Dead and the much anticipated Batwoman are both set for panels and screenings at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater this weekend.
Having already debuted on the AMC Premiere subscription service a few days ago, the Danai Gurira, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride and Jeffrey Dean Morgan-led zombie apocalypse series is back for its 10th season on October 6. A remarkable achievement for any show, this latest season marks the second year that Angela Kang has run the show based on Robert Kirkman’s now finished comic series and one of many appearances that crowd favorite TWD has made at NYCC over the year
Also premiering on October 6, the Ruby Rose starring Batwoman is set to swoop into NYCC that same day and just hours before it hits the small screen. In fact, like a San Diego Comic Con, the confab crowd will get to see the pilot at MSG for the CW’s latest DC Universe addition. Sadly for fans, Rose herself will not be in attendance as the actor is working on the upcoming Arrowverse crossover.
So, fanboys and fangirls, which one of that quartet is the show you have to watch this week? You’ll have to watch my video review above to find out – and for those of you in NYC have a great Comic Con. For those of you not at NYCC this year, follow all the news here on Deadline throughout the weekend.
