TV21 Weekly, a.k.a. TV21, was a British comic strip anthology magazine. This publication continued the Star Trek: The Original Series UK comic strips series in 1970-1971, serializing 11 weekly stories (arcs 14-24) as well as the final two segments of arc 13.

There were also three annuals containing six additional stories, published from 1970-1972.

Initially the stories were serialized two pages per issue. During that period, the covers for issues 37, 38, and 41 were devoted to Star Trek. Starting with issue 42, however, the presentation changed. Star Trek story segments began on the covers themselves, then jumped to pages 6-7. As of issue 74, the stories jumped to pages 12-13. With issue 93, midway through arc 22, "Nova-Thirteen", City Magazines handed the publishing reins over to IPC Magazines. All issues were 8.75" x 11.75".

Other original comic strips included The Adventures of Tarzan (#37-54), Irwin Allen's Land of the Giants (#37-54), The Lone Ranger and Tonto (#55-60), The Phantom (#55-61), The Saint (#37-52) and Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds (#37-38). The magazine also reprinted stories from Marvel Comics' Amazing Spider-Man (#62-105), Ghost Rider (#62-91), Ringo Kid (#61-80, 92-101), and Silver Surfer (#61-105).

In October 1971, TV21 Weekly merged with another anthology named Valiant and relaunched as Valiant and TV21. The Star Trek strip continued in the new publication.
