Considering everything that has transpired around the world in the past year or so, it makes perfect sense that TV and streaming schedules are currently about as straightforward and dependable as rolling dice in space. This obviously isn't a hugely important issue in the grand scheme of things, but there's definitely mental comfort to be found in regularly scheduled escapism. Despite all the constant hiatuses and shortened episode counts, though, April-June still looms large as TV Finale Time, with tons of big shows such as Disney+'s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier wrapping debut seasons, while other shows like CBS' cancelled MacGyver are definitively airing series finales.
So get out your calendars and your favorite color-coded note-taking materials as we go through all the big TV finales hitting the small screen in the coming weeks and months.
Late April 2021 TV Finales
While the early weeks in April did feature some noteworthy season finales for shows like The Walking Dead Season 10, with both Syfy's Wynonna Earp and Showtime's Shameless airing their final episodes ever.
