Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Wednesday, June 27. All times are Eastern.
The Expanse (Syfy, 9 p.m.): After a season that has been almost uniformly excellent—only two episodes in all of season three received a grade lower than an “A-” from reviewer Zack Handlen—The Expanse’s current story comes to a close tonight with a 90-minute, two-part finale. Will Holden stare pensively off into the distance at some point? Probably. Will it be great? All signs point to yes.
The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu)
Big Brother (CBS, 8 p.m.): Holy hell—20 seasons, really? That’s how long this show has been on the air now? There’s something unsettling about that. Anyway, Julie Chen is back to host this two-hour premiere for the anniversary-year season of the apparently immortal reality TV staple, with a brand-new assemblage of people eager to engage in Machiavellian tactics in hopes of going home with half a million dollars. A houseful of telegenic mercenaries, that’s what you’ve got, here.
