This Week in TV: 'Tuca & Bertie,' 'The 100,' 'The Spanish Princess'
Like the previous week, the week of April 29 isn't too heavy on premieres — nor does it feature any finales of note. But a couple of CW shows — including the final season of one — and a pair of high-profile streaming series highlight the week.
Here is The Hollywood Reporter's rundown of some of the coming week's highlights. It would be next to impossible to watch everything, but let THR point the way to worthy options each week. All times are ET/PT unless noted.
On broadcast …
Final season: iZombie begins its final run on The CW at 8 p.m. Thursday. It picks up more or less where it left off, with Liv (Rose McIver) having made a name for herself with her Renegade persona.
Returning: The 100 (8 p.m. Monday, The CW) kicks off its sixth season and, like iZombie, will run well into the summer.
Specials: NBC has the Billboard Music Awards at 8 p.m. Wednesday, and Fox airs the Miss USA competition at 8 p.m. Thursday.
On cable …
New: The Spanish Princess (8 p.m. Sunday, May 5, Starz) follows The White Queen and The White Princess and centers on Catherine of Aragon (Charlotte Hope) as she comes to England and meets the man who will become King Henry VIII.
Also new: Genevieve Gorder hosts the design competition Best Room Wins (10 p.m. Wednesday, Bravo); Discovery debuts Masters of Disaster, about a crew that restores old tech for use should calamity strike.
On streaming …
New: Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong star in Netflix's animated series Tuca & Bertie (Friday), from BoJack Horseman producer Lisa Hanawalt. The two comics play birds who are trying to make their way in the city.
Also new: Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini star as two women, one recently widowed, who form a friendship in Dead to Me (Friday, Netflix); Hulu's monthly horror anthology Into the Dark offers its latest installment, All That We Destroy, on Friday; Netflix releases Fear Factor-ish game show Flinch Friday.
In case you missed it …
From the team behind Chef's Table, Street Food travels to nine cities in Asia and examines food culture there via the operators of, as the title implies, street food stalls. It is streaming on Netflix.
