Game of Thrones. Winter is here. For the second season in a row, producers have frozen out critics, who didn’t get review screeners in advance for this seven-episode, next-to-last season. So we know what Jon Snow knows, which is nothing (including what role new cast member Ed Sheeran will be playing). Here’s the official description of the season premiere, “Dragonstone”: “Jon (Kit Harington) organizes the defense of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home.” Helpful, right? 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO.
The Strain. Fourth and final season opens with Eph (Corey Stoll) living on Chestnut Street in Philadelphia, nine months after a global nuclear apocalypse. Let’s just say the city’s looked better. (That Twelve Monkeys look was only a little worse.) Nuclear winter has made it possible for the vampires, who are now in charge, to get outside in the daytime. Will humans’ fight for freedom begin here? 10 p.m. Sunday, FX.
Remember Me. Monty Python’s Michael Palin stars in this three-episode supernatural drama as a man who first fakes a fall to get put into an assisted-living facility, then witnesses the mysterious death of the social worker who brought him there. 10 p.m. Sunday, WHYY12.
Loaded. Easy money isn’t so easy in this British-U.S. coproduction, based on an Israeli sitcom, in which the founders of a British start-up that makes a really dumb cellphone app become multimillionaires overnight after an American company buys them. Mary McCormack stars as the American acquisitions executive who’s about to make their lives miserable, in spite of all that money. Maybe we don’t want those guys on Silicon Valley to make it after all. 10 p.m. Monday, AMC.
POV: Presenting Princess Shaw. Documentary looks at the collaboration of a YouTube star from New Orleans and an Israeli who makes art by mashing up videos he finds online. 10 p.m. Monday, WHYY12.
Being Mary Jane. The fourth season resumes with Mary Jane (Gabrielle Union) coanchoring a network morning show. Missing the support of her best friend, Kara (Lisa Vidal), who’s been fired, Mary Jane’s dealing with a tricky relationship with her boss, Justin (Michael Ealy), that could have an impact professionally and personally. 10 p.m. Tuesday, BET.
Shooter. Delaware’s Ryan Phillippe is back for a second season as sniper Bob Lee Swagger, who’s reunited with his old Marine unit in Germany for a special ceremony, and is caught in a terrorist attack. 10 p.m. Tuesday, USA.
Norm Macdonald Live. David Letterman and the host heap praise on each other in the season premiere of Macdonald’s YouTube talk show. Tuesday, YouTube and Amazon Prime.
Ozark. Jason Bateman and Laura Linney star in a new drama about a Chicago financial adviser (Bateman) named Marty Byrde who must hastily relocate to Missouri, along with his family, after the drug kingpin (Esai Morales) for whom he’s been laundering money discovers Marty’s partner has been skimming. Let’s just say that neither the move nor Marty’s effort to appease the kingpin goes smoothly. I’m not crazy about the setup, but Bateman and Linney are, not surprisingly, terrific. Friday, Netflix.
