What to Watch this week: The Little Mermaid swims into theaters, Succession and Maisel sign off

Get ready to go under the sea for the live-action/CGI version of Disney's The Little Mermaid, starring Halle Bailey, Melissa McCarthy, Jonah Hauer-King, Daveed Diggs, Awkwafina, Javier Bardem, and more, and directed by Rob Marshall.

There are a few big series finales this week: After Sunday's emotional Logan Roy funeral — where his kids were still spinning wheels to secure control of the company — Succession wraps up its four-season run; Bill Hader's Barry comes to a (deadly?) end; and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel tells her final joke.

Plus, the final season of Mayans M.C. premieres, American Born Chinese debuts on Disney+, Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in the new series FUBAR, and several new shows debut with the transition from HBO Max to Max, including Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, SmartLess: On the Road, and Clone High.

Hear more on all of this week's must-see picks on EW's What to Watch podcast, hosted by Gerrad Hall. Be sure to listen/subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts, or via your own voice-controlled smart speaker (Alexa, Google Home).
