Four: A Divergent Collection on shelves
In a new novella from Veronica Roth, Divergent fans will get an inside look at Four’s story. We know what happened to Tris and what her life was like before Dauntless, but what don’t we know about the series’ hunk?
The Bridge, 10 p.m., FX

With a new showrunner this season, changes are coming: Peter gets a job, Roman has to be a father, and a new girl in town will shake things up. But there’s one thing that will never change—fans can expect multiple bloodbaths.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in theaters
Ten years after the rebellion, Caesar and his apes are living in what seems to be a human-free world. Leave it to Gary Oldman to try to change that.
