This week we find the return of the Underwoods, the first dance for NBC's new star-studded reality series, a penultimate goodbye to everyone's favorite KGB spies and we get to see what happens when Shonda Rhimes takes on Shakespeare.
So grab the popcorn. It's a big week in TV and streaming, as you'll see in TooFab's essential viewing guide!
WATCH WHAT HAPPENS LIVE!
Guest star: Kim Kardashian West
Sunday, May 28 at 11 p.m. ET/PT
Get your cups and saucers out, because Andy Cohen is about to get Kim to serve up all the tea. A month after Caitlyn Jenner visited the late-night dish-fest, and took her fair share of shots at Kim and the Kardashian family, North and Saint's mama gets her chance when she visits "WWHL's" temporary Hollywood set. And we know Andy won't shy away from teeing up the topic. Plus, maybe she'll reveal which family member she picked to be the surrogate for her next child! (Yes, that's really a thing in Kardashian-land… catch up, folks!)
Rachel Lindsay's quest for love moves to its regular timeslot this week, after the season premiere, which had all of America asking, "What the heck is a Whaboom?" Now that we know Rachel does indeed find love (she already revealed she's engaged), we can sit back and focus less on the romance and more on the drinking, the shenanigans and, of course, the bro fights. So feel free to keep those roses to yourself, Rachel. Just keep the tequila flowing!
Get ready for Shakespeare visits Shondaland. After sitting in scheduling limbo for quite some time, the new drama from Shonda Rhimes' production house will finally see the light of day. The tale picks up after the deaths of Romeo and Juliet as the Houses of Capulet and Montague attempt to mend fences and restore peace to the streets of fair Verona. Cue an arranged marriage, a secret romance and a healthy dose of sword fighting, and you have a drama that feels a bit more like The CW than typical Shonda fare. We are nothing, if not curious.
When real-life political antics start to (ahem) trump those on TV, it can be difficult to immerse yourself in a series where fiction is no longer stranger than truth. But here we are, ready to embrace Frank Underwood for yet another term. The new season of the award-winning Netflix drama drops on Tuesday and series star Kevin Spacey has assured us the Underwoods will have no problem keeping pace with President Trump.
For that reason alone, we are excited, if not somewhat concerned of what's to come on the show.
Season 5 finale
Tuesday, May 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT
Speaking of good ol' fashioned American/Russian political unrest (see what we did there?)… buckle up for an explosive season finale of "The Americans." "One day, it will all come crashing down," Keri Russell's Elizabeth says in the sneak peek of the season finale. While we know the end is near, we're not ready to say goodbye just yet. Will we finally see Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth hang up their spy kits for good, and head home? We are banking on an epic finale to set up the forthcoming final season.
WORLD OF DANCE
Tuesday, May 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT
Dancing shows? Been there, done that. Celebrity judges? Nothing new there. Yet, we find ourselves anxiously awaiting the debut of NBC's new dance reality competition series. With a celebrity judging panel of Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and Ne-Yo, and hosted by Jenna Dewan Tatum, NBC is clearly looking to make a splash on Tuesday nights. With three dance divisions (Junior, Upper, Team) and a companion Snapchat series to boot, bring on what J.Lo describes as the "Olympics of dance!"
Heal the past. Embrace the present. Face the future. After a completely bonkers first half to Season 5, we are here and so ready for the next chapter in the "Nashville" saga. Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) is dead. Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) is ready to return to the stage after the plane crash. Oh, and Scarlett (Clare Bowen) is pregnant – what?!? EP Marshall Herskovitz said there will be a "time jump equal to the amount of time we're off-air," so we should pick up knowing if Scarlett kept the baby and who is the father. Did we mention we're ready? Yeehaw!
Season 2 premiere
Friday, June 2
If you saw our rundown of all the amazing Netflix arrivals we can't wait to see in June, you know we are itching for the return of Will Arnett's dark, tragic comedy series. Season 1 found Chip (Arnett) lying his way through Venice Beach and eventually losing everything he had. Will Season 2 bring redemption for our antihero? We hope so, but we know Chip – and we know that means it won't be easy, and life in Venice won't be all sunny days.
