TV THIS WEEK: Bitten returns, Gravity Falls ends, and more!

We're well into the 2016 TV season at this point, but that doesn't mean all of the events are over. This week, Bitten is back in the U.S. for a new season, Gravity Falls says goodbye, and Agent Carter's future is in jeopardy. 

Check out the week in TV below. What's on your watchlist?


LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises (Disney XD) Monday, 8 p.m.

We're still talking about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, in part because of all of the questions the film left for the Expanded Universe to answer. The latest LEGO Star Wars special might not answer a lot of them, but it might still provide some fun for fans who are looking to fill in some gaps. In this Disney short, Poe Dameron is out to rescue Admiral Ackbar from the clutches of Captain Phasma. Check out a preview below.


Mortal Combat X: Machinima's Chasing the Cup (CW) Monday, 8 p.m. 

Gaming special! - Do you love competitive video games? Or just video games in general? Then you might want to check out this special, which takes a look at the best Mortal Combat X players in the world, and their fight to be declared the best.


Gravity Falls (Disney XD) Monday, 8:06 p.m. - "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back the Falls"

Series Finale! - Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch has always made it clear that he intended his show to be finite, and now one of the most critically acclaimed animated series of the last decade is coming to an end. The long summer is over, and a final confrontation is coming. Check out a preview below.


Bitten (Syfy) Monday, 11 p.m. - "Family, Of Sorts"

Season premiere! - We had to wait a while, but we finally got a third season of Bitten. It's already started airing in Canada, but now America gets to see it, and we already know that this will be the final season. So just sit back and enjoy it.


Agent Carter (ABC) Tuesday, 9 p.m. - "Life of the Party" and "Monsters"

Last week, it was revealed that Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell has been cast in Conviction, a new drama pilot at ABC, and Carter fans immediately started worrying if this meant the end of the show. When the reports surfaced, it was noted that ABC would work to accommodate Atwell if she were to continue to star in Agent Carter, but since the show's ratings have never been stellar, fans are worrying. So, will this spell doom for the show? It's really hard to tell. After all, this is just a pilot order, which doesn't guarantee a series for Conviction. At the same time, we still don't know how the rest of Agent Carter Season 2 will perform. So, while this could be an issue for the show going forward, for the moment it's important to remain calm.
