‘Somebody Somewhere’
When to Watch: Sunday at 10:30 p.m., on HBO

“Somebody Somewhere,” a mellow, melancholy comedy set in the Sunflower State, was recently renewed for a second season. It stars the cabaret legend Bridget Everett as Sam, a woman who foreclosed on her big city dreams. Over the course of this season, Sam has taken a few steps toward a larger life. In the first season finale, which airs Sunday, she takes a few more.

Mark Duplass, an executive producer on the series, coined the term “epic minimalism” to describe the series, meaning that almost nothing happens but what does happen means everything to the characters. If you’ve missed the earlier episodes, you can catch up on HBO Max. Or just go in cold and let a couple of Everett’s racier compositions turn the heat on.

‘Killing Eve’
When to Watch: Sunday at 8 p.m., on BBC America

Here is a question that no “Killing Eve” fan struggles to answer: Am I in it for the elaborate multinational conspiracy or the fun wigs? In this stylish thriller, Eve, Sandra Oh’s former MI6 agent, and Villanelle, Jodie Comer’s poised assassin are frenemies yoked in mutual obsession. At the start of this fourth and final season of the show — with Laura Neal as lead writer — they have effectively switched places: Villanelle is trying to go straight, and Eve has veered into a motorcycle jacket and upgraded weaponry. It’s possible that the cat-and-cat games have gone on too long, but perhaps this season the women will bed each other. Or kill each other. Or really, why not both? (The first episode airs Monday on AMC; the first two start streaming Sunday on AMC+.)

‘Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber’
When to Watch: Sunday at 10 p.m., on Showtime

The first season of this business-focused anthology series spotlights Uber, particularly the rise and crash of the founder and former chief executive, Travis Kalanick, who built its toxic workplace culture. He is played here, against type, by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, doing his bro-iest. He is joined by Kyle Chandler, as the venture capitalist Bill Gurley, and Uma Thurman, as Arianna Huffington.

Among the creators are Brian Koppelman and David Levien, who are also creators of “Billions.” (The show is based on the book by the New York Times reporter Mike Isaac, who is also a co-executive producer.) If you like “Billions” for that “Hey, is this a condemnation of macho corporate culture or maybe actually … not?” feeling, then you will probably like this, too.
