DON’T MISS: “Roseanne” – Television’s reboot craze continues as the iconic blue-collar family sitcom returns – with original cast intact – 26 years after leaving the air. Roseanne and Dan Conner (Roseanne Barr and John Goodman) still reside in the same modest house in Lanford, Ill., and they’re still living from paycheck to paycheck. It doesn’t help, of course, that they’ve got to keep stocked up on meds for their various other ailments. Among the familiar faces appearing in back-to-back episodes are Sara Gilbert as Darlene and Laurie Metcalf as Jackie. (8 p.m. Tuesday, ABC).

Other bets

SUNDAY: The future is now for the nerdy bros of “Silicon Valley.” As the comedy returns for its fifth season, Pied Piper finally has ample funding and the needed resources. But, of course, more money brings more problems. (10 p.m., HBO).

SUNDAY: Speaking of money – and problems – the new drama “Trust” delves into the trials of the super-wealthy Getty family. It begins in 1973 with the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III by the Italian mafia in Rome. Donald Sutherland leads a cast that includes Hilary Swank and Brendan Fraser. (10 p.m., FX).

SUNDAY: “Saturday Night Live” alum Bill Hader stars in the killer new comedy series “Barry.” He plays a low-rent hit man, who, while on a job in Los Angeles, finds himself drawn to an acting class that just might change his life. Henry Winkler also stars. (10:30 p.m., HBO).

MONDAY: Inspired by true events, “The Terror” is a chilling new horror-adventure series that follows the British Royal Navy’s perilous voyage into icy, uncharted Arctic territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage. The cast includes Ciaran Hinds, Jared Harris and Tobias Menzies. (9 p.m., AMC).

TUESDAY: Yes, breaking up is hard to do, but it can be even more difficult when divorcing parents attempt to take turns living in the garage apartment. That’s the offbeat premise of “Splitting Up Together,” a new comedy starring Jenna Fischer and Oliver Hudson. (9:30 p.m., ABC).

WEDNESDAY: “The Americans,” one of television’s best dramas in recent years, launches its final season. It begins with a three-year time jump – to the fall of 1987. As a major arms control summit looms, Elizabeth is pushed to her limits. Philip, meanwhile, is happily retired from the spy game – until an unexpected visitor makes an ominous request. (10 p.m., FX).

THURSDAY: The see-worthy new thriller “Siren” takes viewers to Bristol Cove, a coastal town that – as legend has it – once was a home to mermaids. Now, a mysterious girl (Eline Powell) has surfaced, proving the folklore to be all too true. (8 p.m., Freeform).

FRIDAY: Neil Patrick Harris returns as the devious Count Olaf in Season 2 of the darkly comedic “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” Apparently, he still will stop at nothing to get his grubby paws on the inheritance of the Baudelaire orphans – Violet, Klaus and Sunny. (Netflix).

SATURDAY: “Girls Trip,” the hilarious 2017 big-screen hit, makes its TV debut. The film follows four gal pals who decide they need to take a vacation together after five years apart. So they head to New Orleans, where all kinds of shenanigans go down. (8 p.m., HBO).
