“The Name of the Rose,” Sundance TV’s limited series based on Umberto Eco’s highly acclaimed novel, finales with two back-to-back all-new episodes on Thursday, June 13th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. In episode seven, after an intense witch-hunt and trial, Bernard is convinced he has found the killer. However, the death of another monk may prove him wrong.
The series concludes with its season finale at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT. With the murderer still on the loose and the summit coming to a close, William and Adso are in a race against time to find the real culprit.
Set in Italy in 1327, the series follows the Franciscan monk William of Baskerville (John Turturro) and his novice Adso von Melk (Damian Hardung) as they arrive at a secluded monastery in the Alps. There they become witnesses to a series of mysterious murders. While Baskerville and Melk investigate and search for the killer, they are hunted themselves by the merciless inquisitor Bernard Gui (Rupert Everett), who prosecutes those who criticize the pope.
The final season of AMC’s “The Son,” continues on Saturday, June 15th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the all-new episode, “Their Guilty Stains,” Young Eli’s Comanche band are forced to survive on their own in 1852. In 1916, the McCulloughs search for Maria while Jeannie discovers a devastating secret.
Based on Philipp Meyer’s New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel of the same name, season two of The Son concludes the journey of the iconic “First Son of Texas.” Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan) will stop at nothing to secure his legacy against the backdrop of the nascent oil industry of 1917. His tools are deceit, fraud and murder — weapons he wields with the effortless skill of the Comanche warrior he once was. But the biggest challenge he faces will be quelling a civil war under his own roof, triggered by his idealistic son Pete (Henry Garrett). Eli knows the ultimate prize of American dynasty is nearly in his grasp, and time is running out. Meanwhile, in 1851, young Eli (Jacob Lofland) is now married and a respected warrior among the Comanches, but tragedy forces him into a leadership position as the vast Comanche empire crumbles around him. Broadening the scope, a 1988 timeline is introduced, bringing the McCullough saga into the more immediate past. Here, at age 85, Eli’s granddaughter Jeanne Anne McCullough (Lois Smith) is confronted with a long-buried family secret.
Season five of “Luther” continues on Sunday, June 16th at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America.

Who is Luther willing to save, and who can’t he bear to lose?
Season five of “Fear the Walking Dead” continues with its third episode, “Humbug’s Gulch” on Sunday, June 16th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. June and Dorie take shelter to hide from a threat, but a misunderstanding with a desperate survivor leads to trouble. Meanwhile, Alicia and Morgan face a dangerous obstacle.
In “Fear the Walking Dead” Season five, the group’s mission is clear: locate survivors and help make what’s left of the world a slightly better place. With dogged determination, Morgan Jones (Lennie James) leads the group with a philosophy rooted in benevolence, community and hope. Each character believes that helping others will allow them to make up for the wrongs of their pasts. But trust won’t be easily earned. Their mission of helping others will be put to the ultimate test when our group finds themselves in unchartered territory, one which will force them to face not just their pasts but also their fears. It is only through facing those fears that the group will discover an entirely new way to live, one that will leave them forever changed.
AMC’s new supernatural horror series, “NOS4A2” continues on Sunday, June 16th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the third episode, “The Gas Mask Man,” Vic strives to live a normal life despite Maggie’s warning, while Charlie Manx puts Bing Partridge to work.

Based on the 2013 novel by Joe Hill, “NOS4A2” introduces Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things.
