When “Madam Secretary” returns Sunday night on CBS, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni, above) is now president of the United States.

TV’s best bets for the coming week include:


Can you handle yet another superhero series? Get ready for “Batwoman.” Ruby Rose is magnetic as Gotham City’s new vigilante — arriving at a time when Bruce Wayne is missing. (7 p.m., The CW).

The sixth and final season of “Madam Secretary” starts off with a time jump as Elizabeth McCord becomes president. Also, Stephen Colbert guest stars as himself. (9 p.m., CBS).

The acclaimed hacker drama “Mr. Robot” is poised to log off, but not before a 13-episode fourth season set during the 2015 Christmas holiday plays out. (9 p.m., USA).


After winning the state championship, Spencer James faces a difficult decision that could transform his reputation in the Season 2 premiere of “All American.” (7 p.m., The CW).


In the season premiere of “The Flash,” Barry and Iris grapple with the heartbreaking loss of their daughter. Meanwhile, the team faces their greatest threat yet. (7 p.m., The CW).


Newcomer Kennedy McMann plays the iconic teen detective in the drama series “Nancy Drew.” Of course, she’s adept at solving complex criminal cases — including one in which she’s a prime suspect. (8 p.m., The CW).

Thursday (Oct. 10)

The 15th — and final — season of “Supernatural” picks up where we left off last season. Sam, Dean and Castiel are left to defend the world after all the souls in hell have been released and are free to kill again. (7 p.m., The CW).

Friday (Oct. 11)

Ever since “Breaking Bad” ended its run in 2013, fans have wondered what happened to Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). When last seen, Walter White’s sidekick had escaped white supremacist thugs and was tearing down the road in, yes, an El Camino. Now comes “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” from “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan, which catches up with a bruised and battered Jesse. (Netflix).

Saturday (Oct. 12)

You won’t find Felicity Huffman or Lori Loughlin in “The College Admissions Scandal.” But you can bet their presence will be felt in this ripped-from-the-headlines movie about two wealthy mothers who share an obsession with getting their teenagers into the best possible college. (7 p.m., Lifetime).
