To clarify, do you want the page changed to a TV series, a TV movie or a TV special? 

Whatever the answer is, you will need to submit an update by changing the title. Currently, the title is stored on IMDb this way:

Vikander (2021)

Go to the title's main page and click the Edit page button.
You will go to the Title Correction section at the bottom of the Update Information page. 
Type the new title format in the form this way:

For a TV series title:
"Vikander" (2021)

For a TV movie:
Vikander (2021) (TV)

For a TV special:
Vikander (2021) (TV)
Add tv-special to the Keywords section.

In all three examples, you will need to write a brief message in the Explanation box on why the title format is being changed. You will also need to acknowledge the following warning statement:

There is a mismatch between the title type of the old and new titles.

Click the checkbox to the left of the following statement:

Warning understood, go ahead anyway.

Give at least 72 hours for processing.

I hope this helps. Please write back here if you need any more assistance.
