If heading out to theaters doesn’t sound appealing this summer, stay in and watch TV. A number of popular shows aren’t waiting for the cooler months to roll out new episodes, and fans are grateful. With one show ending its run and another entering its sophomore season, it’s going to be a hot TV summer. Here are five TV shows we can’t wait to return this year.
It’s difficult to narrow down five TV shows we can’t wait to see, but “All American” is a good place to start.
The CW hit based on the real-life experiences of ex-NFL player Spencer Paysinger resonated with audiences in its rookie season. When the second season premieres, fans will find out whether Spencer led his new school to a championship or threw the game to let his former school win.
“All American” returns on Oct. 7 and stars Michael Evans Behling, Bre-Z, Daniel Ezra and Samantha Logan.
Beginning the sixth and final season, the Omari Hardwick-led drama will have a number of loose ends to tie up. Because of the explosiveness of the first five seasons, expect the finale to be a crazy one.
“Power” returns to Starz network on Aug. 24.
Created by the late John Singleton, the ’80s-era drama about the early stages of the crack epidemic in Los Angeles returns for a third season. The season three trailer teased the introduction of “rock” in the communities, and the devastation is nearly immediate.
“Snowfall” returns July 10 on FX.
“This is Us”
The Pearson family returns for a fourth season with new revelations past and present. At the end of season three, the family gathered at Beth’s bedside with some faces notably missing. Not to mention Kevin has a child, and Toby isn’t wearing his wedding ring. In any event, lots of tears and tissues will come in handy.
“This is Us” returns Sept. 24 of NBC.
“Orange is the New Black”
Returning for its seventh season, “Orange Is the New Black” has more to tell about life behind bars. With season six ending with a riot and prisoners moved to Litchfield maximum security, what could happen next? New alliances and new feuds will be born.
“Orange is the New Black” premieres July 26 on Netflix.
