My Mother and Other Strangers on Mas­ter­piece / 8:00pm (22) 4:00am (22) 8:00pm (26.4) The may­hem, emo­tional and other­wise, that a fam­ily gets into in World War II-era North­ern Ire­land fu­els this new drama. “Episode 1” sees the mar­ried Rose Coyne (played by Hat­tie Mo­ra­han, of Dis­ney’s “Beauty and the Beast”) newly at­tracted to an Amer­i­can mil­i­tary man (Aaron Sta­ton, “Mad Men”), which doesn’t make her hus­band’s (Owen McDon­nell) ef­forts to meet her ex­pec­ta­tions any eas­ier.

Fear the Walk­ing Dead / 9:00pm (AMC) 11:00pm (AMC) 12:01am (AMC) 2:01am (AMC) 4:01am (AMC) As the core char­ac­ters fans have grown to know best con­tinue their fight to stay con­nected un­der the most dire cir­cum­stances imag­in­able, the new episode “100” in­tro­duces a mys­te­ri­ous char­ac­ter search­ing for a defin­ing pur­pose, who be­comes tied to the strug­gle over a re­source that is be­com­ing a pre­cious com­mod­ity in the post-apoc­a­lypse world.

Amer­i­can Gods / 9:00pm (Starz) 10:02pm (Starz) 11:04pm (Starz) Sea­son 2 al­ready has been green­lit, but for now, the block­buster Starz adap­ta­tion of Neil Gaiman’s epic fan­tasy ends its fresh­man ses­sion with “Come to Je­sus,” the sea­son fi­nale. War be­tween the Old Gods and the newer deities looms, but Mr. Wed­nes­day (Ian McShane) needs to re­cruit one more se­nior di­vin­ity: Os­tara (Kristin Chenoweth), bet­ter known as Easter, god­dess of the dawn.

Good Witch / 9:00pm (Hall­mark) Cassie (Cather­ine Bell) wants to do some­thing spe­cial to mark the first an­niver­sary of Sam’s (James Den­ton) arrival in Mid­dle­ton, so at Martha’s (Cather­ine Disher) urg­ing, she starts plan­ning a sur­prise party. Alas, the gath­er­ing soon es­ca­lates into the kind of bash she knows Sam would hate in the new episode “Some­what Sur­pris­ing.” At Grey House, the dis­cov­ery of a coat that once be­longed to her fa­ther stirs bit­ter­sweet mem­o­ries for Abi­gail (Sarah Power).
