Summer is a time when most people spend more time outdoors on the lake or river, lounging in the pools, or vacationing.
Whatever you do, it’s great to escape the cold, snowy months of winter.
In the evenings, television networks are giving us fresh new shows so we don’t have to watch re-runs and pine for the return of our favorite shows.
Now that my favorites, “The Walking Dead”, “How To Get Away With Murder”, “Bates Motel”, “American Horror Story”, “Madam Secretary”, “American Crime” are on hiatus, and “The Following” and “Stalker” heading off to the television graveyard, here are the shows that excite me this summer.
I just have to include the trailers for the series finales of “The Following” and “Stalker”, both of which air Monday, May 18th!
Now, my summer shows……
“Wayward Pines” kicked off on Fox, Thursday, May 14th, to rave reviews.
“Aquarius” with David Duchovny debuts on NBC on Thursday, May 28th.
Duchovny will play a detective who ends up on the hunt for a young serial killer, Charles Manson.
The third season of one of my favorite shows, “Hannibal”, returns on NBC Thursday, June 4th.
Ironically, that means Duchovny will be back-to-back on NBC Thursday night with his “The X-Files” television partner, Gillian Anderson, who plays Hannibal’s psychiatrist, Dr. Bedelia Du Maurie.
Those ready for the six new episodes of “The X-Files” will have to wait until January 24, 2016!
On USA, I’m going to check out “Mr. Robot”. It premiers Wednesday, June 24th.
I kept seeing the promotions for it during “Dig”, a ten-episode thriller that has already concluded. However, if you have On Demand, I highly recommending binge watching it.
And, on Tuesday, June 30th, I plan on checking out “Zoo” on CBS.
There isn’t much in this trailer. It’s a drama about a global pandemic that causes animals to launch violent, coordinated attacks against humans stars James Wolk, Kristen Connolly, and Billy Burke.
And, the six-episode accompanying series to “The Walking Dead”, “Fear The Walking Dead” debuts some time late this summer on AMC.
Okay, while I don’t want to rush summer, here is the ONLY show that has piqued my curiosity for the fall.
“Scream Queens” comes to Fox in September.
What shows are you excited about?
