Read on to find out when the finale of your favorite show airs!

May 15th

The CW’s "Riverdale" aired its season three finale “Chapter Fifty-Seven: Survive the Night” on May 15th. If you missed the live broadcast of the show, you can watch all three seasons on Netflix.

This time last year "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" was giving us heart palpitations when it was cancelled by FOX after five seasons, but was saved by NBC just a couple days later. NBC gave friends 99 reason to celebrate by renewing the sitcom for a seventh season.
