A new season of weather always heralds a new season of TV shows. And while many networks will be unveiling brand-new shows this summer season, several old favorites are returning as well. Check out the shows that promise to be the hottest, and tune into the most talked-about TV.
Summer shows will start returning to TV starting in June, and the first week of the month is packed with premieres. Use your time wisely to watch the right ones — or at least, the ones that are destined to light up Twitter all summer long.
Tune into ABC to see season 2 of “Mistresses,” an ensemble show about four women and their complex relationships with lovers, exes and each other. The steamy series is a perfect summer offering, when blood is already running hot.
But if sweet romance with a side of supernatural is more to your liking, turn to The CW to see “Beauty and the Beast.” It’s a modern fairy tale with a dark side. This series offers shadowy dangers, paranormal twists and, of course, true love.
If watching TV on someone else’s schedule isn’t your thing, make sure your Netflix subscription is good for June 6. That’s the day the online streaming service will unveil new episodes of “Orange is the New Black,” the critically-acclaimed series about women’s prison. In their usual fashion, Netflix will release all episodes of the new season at the same time so you can watch them all as you like.
ABC Family viewers will have lots of reasons to tune into the cable channel over the summer. “Pretty Little Liars” will return with brand-new episodes on June 10, revealing more twists and turns in their confusing maze of a teen-centric series.
About a week later, two more ABC Family shows will return with new episodes. On June 16, “Switched at Birth” and the “The Fosters” will come back to the channel. Both shows are about teenagers in unique family situations who must figure out who they are and what they want, while navigating their own eccentric environments.
This year’s summer TV will offer a lot of different distractions. Tune into the best returning shows, and keep your season hot all summer long.
