DON’T MISS: “The Walking Dead” – It’s the beginning of the end as the zombie sensation kicks off the first part of its 11th and final season. In the gasp-inducing opener, Alexandria has been left ravaged by the Whisperers. With food supplies quickly dwindling and tensions on the rise, Maggie proposes a new plan that some view as a suicide mission. It’s a terrifying journey that has the survivors – joined by reformed baddie Negan – making their way through a dark subway tunnel under Washington, D.C. (9 p.m. Sunday, AMC).

MONDAY: On “The Ultimate Surfer,” 14 up-and-coming wave-riders train and compete at a state-of-the-art surf ranch powered by human-made wave technology. The last man and woman standing each win $100,000 and a chance to appear on the World Surf League Championship Tour. (10 p.m., ABC).

TUESDAY: Back from hiatus, “Supergirl” kicks off its final run of episodes.

(10 p.m., FX).

WEDNESDAY: As season 12 of the animated spy comedy “Archer” begins, Sterling Archer and his team face brutal new competition from spy conglomerate International Intelligence Agency. Will his mom-and-pop operation be able to fend off these soulless vultures – or get swallowed alive? (10 p.m., FXX).

WEDNESDAY: Adrian Grenier (“Entourage”) returns to series television in the chilling “Clickbait.” He plays a loving father and husband who mysteriously disappears and then turns up online, badly beaten, and holding a sign that reads, “I abuse women. At 5 million views, I die.” What the heck is going on? (Netflix).

THURSDAY: In season two of the social satire “The Other Two,” celebrity wannabes Brooke and Cary Dubek (Helene Yorke, Drew Tarver) must now contend with a newly famous family member – their bubbly, 53-year-old mother Pat (Molly Shannon), who has become a daytime talk show star. (HBO Max).
