Blue Bloods

You might recognize some familiar faces around the Reagan dinner table as Season 13 of the stalwart family/police drama concludes, when grown-up offspring Nicky (Sami Gayle) and Jack (Tony Terraciano) make an appearance. Also back in action: original cast member Jennifer Esposito as Danny’s (Donnie Wahlberg) former partner Jackie Curatola, who’s enlisted by Danny and Baez (Marisa Ramirez) to help find a copycat killer whose crimes echo a previous case. In a timely subplot, commissioner Frank (Tom Selleck) once again locks horns with Mayor Chase (Dylan Walsh) over how to address New York’s ever-growing homeless population.

S.W.A.T.

Narrowly escaping cancellation, S.W.A.T. concludes its two-part Season 6 finale with guest star Timothy Hutton as DEA leader Mack Boyle, whose goal to avenge his son’s death fuels his mission with the team to take down a cartel boss causing havoc on L.A.’s mean streets. Followed by Fire Country‘s (9/8c, CBS) freshman season ender, where Bode (Max Thieriot) awaits the results of his parole hearing, while a massive mudslide threatens the future of Edgewater.

Rebecca Ferguson in 'Silo'

Silo

There’s a new sheriff in the deep underground bunker on this gripping apocalyptic drama, but it’s not an easy or peaceful transition for engineer-turned-law enforcer Juliette (Rebecca Ferguson), whose deputy Marnes (Will Patton) is recklessly grieving the latest victim in a string of mysterious deaths. With flashbacks shedding light on Juliette’s adolescent rebellion, it’s another taut episode on a busy Friday for the streamer. Jennifer Garner’s had-she-but-known mystery thriller The Last Thing He Told Me ends its limited run, the nature docuseries Big Beasts wraps with episodes focused on tigers and polar bears, and international drama Drops of God and urban 1970s’ period drama City on Fire continue their stories.

The Secrets of Hillsong

A four-part docuseries (concluding next Friday), inspired by reporting from Vanity Fair, unravels the scandals that rocked the trendy Hillsong megachurch. The series features the first interview with former pastors Carl and Laura Lentz since their expulsion, which led to more revelations about the church’s pattern of covering up transgressions by its founder, Brian Houston. After Carl was fired for his extramarital affairs, allegations of racism, sexual abuse and homophobia within the church began to emerge, resulting in a very public fall from grace.
