Will the characters on “Insecure” make better decisions? Will the characters on “Fear the Walking Dead” stay alive?

What’s on TV

INSECURE 10:30 p.m. on HBO. If you’re looking for television role models who make exemplary decisions, then “Insecure” is not the show for you. Its first two seasons have followed Issa (Issa Rae), Molly (Yvonne Orji) and Lawrence (Jay Ellis) as they stumbled through their personal and professional lives, leaving behind trash-can fires, vicious insults and tattered self-esteems. In the Season 3 premiere, Issa ends up on an old flame’s couch and in danger of losing her job.

GREAT PERFORMANCES AT THE MET 1 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). This Metropolitan Opera production of Verdi’s “Luisa Miller” has impressive stars: Sonya Yoncheva, in the title role, with Plácido Domingo playing the father of Ms. Yoncheva’s Luisa, in the 149th role of his career. “What Mr. Domingo is doing is not atypical,” Zachary Woolfe wrote in his review for The New York Times. “It’s unprecedented in opera history.” He continued, “You almost don’t believe your eyes or ears.”

2018 TEEN CHOICE AWARDS 8 p.m. on Fox. The cast members of “Riverdale,” Zac Efron and Chris Pratt are all slated to appear at this awards show, which doles out prizes based on fan votes. Musical performers include Bebe Rexha, who recently released her long-awaited debut album, “Expectations.” Ms. Rexha is nominated for “choice collaboration” for “Meant to Be,” her single with Florida Georgia Line. The show will also stream on Fox Now.

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD 9 p.m. on AMC. Eight years after “The Walking Dead” debuted on AMC, the future of its zombie universe feels tenuous. The show’s unflappable lead, Andrew Lincoln (who plays Rick Grimes), announced he will depart after Season 9, and the previous season of the spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead” has been met with some criticism and confusion. That show hopes to regroup on Sunday after a two-month hiatus. Only one core character from its pilot remains alive: Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey). In this episode, she receives help from a newcomer, Morgan (Lennie James, who also appeared on “The Walking Dead”), as a storm brews.

GET SHORTY 9 p.m. on Epix. The plot sounds familiar: A hit man becomes disillusioned with his job and suddenly yearns to make it in the arts. It’s the plot of this series as well as of “Barry,” the HBO show that was nominated for 13 Emmys. But “Get Shorty” came first and is based on the 1990 novel by Elmore Leonard. Season 2 starts on Sunday, with Chris O’Dowd playing an aspiring movie man and Ray Romano playing his mentor. “Mr. O’Dowd is a delight as we watch Miles get sucked into the hell that Hollywood can be,” Neil Genzlinger wrote in his review last year.
