John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls. The Republican senator from Arizona agreed to cooperate with this project, which focuses on the highs and lows of his life and career, not long after being diagnosed with brain cancer. “You will never talk to anyone who is as fortunate as John McCain,” says the former POW and presidential contender.

Two-hour documentary looks at the history of an 1882 law that specifically denied one group the opportunity to immigrate to the United States, and prevented those who’d already come here from becoming citizens.

Arrested Development. Yes, there can be too much of a good thing, but if you don’t believe it, then I give you the fifth season of show I’d prefer to remember fondly than wade too much further into the tangled lives of the Bluth family, who are back with the first eight episodes of what’s envisioned as a 16-episode season. Tuesday, Netflix.
Reverie.

The Americans. Whatever happens in this series finale, it’s the end of our time with Reagan-era Soviet spies Philip and Elizabeth Jennings (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell) and their apparently no-longer clueless FBI agent neighbor Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich).

Tom Burke stars as London private investigator Cormoran Strike, who carries with him the inevitable complicated past — as well as a prosthetic leg to replace the one he lost to a bomb in Afghanistan. Based on the novels of Robert Galbraith, which is what Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling calls herself for this horcrux-free set of stories, it also stars Holliday Grainger (The Borgias) as Robin Ellacott, Strike’s new assistant, who’s keen to learn the business. 10 p.m. June 1, Cinemax.
