FRIDAY

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie
HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix
Six years after Breaking Bad ended its celebrated five-season run, El Camino revs up the franchise for another adventure, this one featuring Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) on the run from justice. Written and directed by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, this two-hour movie serves as a sequel of sorts to AMC’s legendary, Emmy-grabbing meth drama series, which ended in 2013 with Jesse driving Todd’s El Camino the hell out of that neo-Nazi compound to freedom while Walt succumbed to wounds suffered in his automated shootout. Details on the filmed-in-secret project are scant, but Paul would like you to know this: “If you trust in Vince, you’re gonna really love this movie. What he did with Breaking Bad was pretty pitch-perfect, and you just follow him into this next chapter. It’s not trying to be anything that it’s not. It’s just a genuine, honest next chapter — and it’s a beautiful one.” Here’s to a very Bad journey. —Dan Snierson

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on The CW
Season PremiereCharmed returns for season 2 and within the first ten minutes hits the reset button on the Charmed Ones. Macy, Madeleine, and Maggie encounter a new hooded assassin, who brings them into a plot that threatens the very existence of magic and their lives as they know them. Not to mention, what the new foe could mean for Harry…. —Maureen Lee Lenker

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK
HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on Logo

Series Network Debut
Slag? Gobshite? Tuppence? These words might mean nothing to Americans right now, but, thanks to RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, they’re poised to enter the queer vocabulary just like shantay, goop, and hunty before them. For the first time in its 10-year herstory, the Emmy-winning franchise death-drops across the Atlantic for its British debut, and the crop of queens vying for the title are as extra as their names (Sum Ting Wong! Baga Chipz! Cheryl Hole!). While the season 1 premiere (episodes are available to stream eight days prior to their Logo airing on WOW Presents Plus) is high on celebrity (hello, flirty guest judge Andrew Garfield) and camp (and follows a similar format to its U.S. counterpart), Drag Race UK feels like a remarkably refreshing step in the right direction for the veteran franchise, marrying American swag with a splash of signature British comedy (nothing can top the first mini-challenge that sees the queens posing for photos with their own severed heads — cue oral sex jokes) for a competition that’s poised to snatch wigs from Washington to Wales. —Joey Nolfi

The College Admissions Scandal
HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on Lifetime

Even as the real-life college admission scandal continues to unfold, the first dramatization of the events has arrived (with at least one more on the way). Penelope Ann Miller (Riverdale) and Mia Kirshner (Star Trek: Discovery) star in Lifetime’s very Lifetime-y adaptation as “Caroline” and “Bethany,” two wealthy mothers who are drawn into a scheme to secure their kids spots at prestigious colleges. And, well, you know the rest. While the names of high-profile defendants Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman won’t be invoked, such outrageous-but-true details as fake athletic photos, incriminating phone calls, and falsified test scores will be. As Huffman herself aptly put it, “Ruh ro!” —Tyler Aquilina

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on HBO

Smith-Cameron) and Roman (Kieran Culkin) live happily ever after? These are just a few of the questions we hope are answered in rich fashion. —Derek Lawrence
