Weekend Preview: ‘The Walking Dead’ Careens Into A Midseason Finale, And ‘Watchmen’ Gets Nostalgic

Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, plenty of series are taking a little break, so if nothing below suits your sensibilities, please check out our guide to What You Should Watch On Streaming Right Now.

The Walking Dead (Sunday, AMC 9:00 p.m.) — Season 10 is already at the mid-season point, somehow, with a new character arriving amid tensions in Oceanside while the Alexandrians embark upon a vital mission.

Watchmen (Sunday, HBO 9:00 p.m.) — Damon Lindelof’s continuation of Alan Moore’s legendary graphic novel picks up with an Angela-centric episode after she swallows those Nostalgia pills upon her arrest.

Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings (Friday, Netflix anthology series) — Dolly’s bringing viewers her stories and inspirations that led to her most embraced songs. Each episode will feature both new and classic Dolly tunes, and every one of her stories will veer between family dramas, westerns, and revenge comedies.
