VoiceHeres Whats Happening in TV This Week

 The Emmys! Plus: Farewell to 'The Mindy Project' and 'The Strain,' and welcome back to 'Broad City.'

Welcome to This Week in TV. In a bid to help you prioritize among all the events, premieres, big episodes and finales, The Hollywood Reporter's eagle-eyed TV team every Monday will take a closer look at what to expect from the week ahead — and provide helpful links and context for each. Here's a handy primer for the events that will likely take over the headlines in the week ahead.

The Beginning of the End for The Mindy Project, Tuesday, 12:01 a.m.

After six seasons, a dozen love interests and hundreds of killer ensembles, the Mindy Kaling comedy kicks off its 10-episode final season on Hulu. Despite her onscreen alter ego's surprising decision to get hitched at the end of season five, expect more romantic drama ahead as well as an impressive roster of guest stars, old (Chris Messina, Adam Pally, Glenn Howerton, Mark Duplass) and new, like Oscar- winner Reese Witherspoon and Julie Bowen.

Abbi and Ilana Are Back on Broad City's Long-Awaited Fourth Season, Wednesday, 10:30 p.m.

Winter is here. Well, at least on the Comedy Central breakout, which returns after a year-and-a-half hiatus. The new season kicks off with a Sliding Doors homage that shows just how the now-inseparable duo met back in 2011. Other upcoming episodes feature a visit from Abbi's mom, a sure-to-be-memorable mushroom trip and a trip to Florida, in addition to guest stars RuPaul Charles and Shania Twain (among others.) One thing viewers shouldn't expect? To hear the President's name.


American Vandal Uncovers a New Side to True Crime, Friday, 12:01 a.m.

Following in the tradition of Making a Murderer and The Keepers, Netflix launches its next true crime series with this Funny or Die co-production set at a Southern California high school. Only this time, the series is a satire of the genre in which the central mystery is "Who drew the dicks?" THR TV critic Daniel Fienberg praised the series, saying it "wildly and consistently exceeded my expectations, in large part because it evolves and becomes a much better and different show over its eight-episode run."


Stephen Colbert Hosts the 2017 Emmy Awards, Sunday, 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT

Which show will be named best drama series in Game of Thrones' absence? Will Veep get elected to another term as best comedy series? Will The Handmaid's Tale win big in the post-Trump era? Those are just some of the (many) burning questions as the Emmys cap off another competitive awards season in the #PeakTV era. One thing seems certain: Look for first-time host (and six-time nominee) Stephen Colbert to make some noise (and a few Trump jokes) after a truly breakout year. (Study up on the nominations here.)

The Strain Takes "The Last Stand," Sunday, 10 p.m.

Yes, that's the name of the final installment of the Guillermo del Toro/Calton Cuse/Chuck Hogan saga, penned by showrunner Cuse and co-creator Hogan. Thankfully, even those viewers who already know how the books end will still be able to enjoy the series finale. As Cuse told THR in July, "If you’ve read the books, you will still be very, very surprised and hopefully enjoy the ending of the TV show."  On Thursday, FX also brings back the acclaimed Pamela Adlon series Better Things fresh off the star's surprise Emmy nomination for best leading actress in comedy.Heres Whats Happening in TV This Week
