HBO’s hugely popular show “Succession” returns Sunday, March 26, for its fourth and final season.

Kiefer Sutherland returns on the same night to TV with his new Paramount+ thriller “Rabbit Hole,” in which he plays a man who runs a corporate espionage business and gets framed for murder. He then has to figure out how to get himself out of a very complicated mess. Yes, it’s very on brand for a man who spent many years as Jack Bauer on “24.”

Academy Award-winning actress Olivia Colman is also on brand as she plays Miss Havisham in a new FX on Hulu take on the Charles Dickens classic “Great Expectations” on Sunday.

Comedic whirlwind Rebel Wilson on Friday goes off brand by taking on her first dramatic role in AMC+s “The Almond and the Seahorse.” She plays the wife of a husband who suffers a debilitating form of amnesia and ends up bonding with another woman whose spouse is also suffering the same fate.

Amazon features a documentary about outspoken former baseball player Reggie Jackson on Friday. On the same day, Apple TV+ tries its first reality competition show, “My Kind of Country,” which features three country stars, Jimmie Allen, Mickey Guyton and Orville Peck, seeking a different kind of country star.

Hulu that day is releasing a new musical romantic comedy “Up Here,” starring Mae Whitman and Carlos Valdes, who meet cute in New York City in 1999. The twist: Each has a trio of imaginary variants of people in their lives interfering with their decisions and everybody sings. In a very different vein, Peacock Friday offers up the streaming debut of the box-office horror flick “Knock at the Cabin.”

On basic cable, BET brings back the 10th season of “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” Wednesday. On Sunday, “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria follows in the footsteps of Stanley Tucci on CNN, by exploring Mexican cuisine.
