Look, I get it. When the snow finally melts and its warm, we as Canadians are “supposed” to spend every waking moment outside… BUT… sometimes you just need to lounge around on the couch and take advantage of some much needed A/C.  We usually associate good television with the new “Fall” line-up, but don’t dismiss new Summer shows so fast! Some of our favourite summer shows are returning, as well as some new ones to get addicted too!

I’ve compiled a list of the hottest shows coming this summer!

Still Star-Crossed (New Series)
When: Monday, May 29th at 10:00 P.M.
Network: ABC

Based on the book by Melinda Taub, this period drama takes place right after Romeo and Juliet take their lives.

When: Tuesday, May 30th at 10:00 P.M.
Network: MTV

Ahh, the good ol’ days.  Remember when this was a thing back in the 90’s?  Well now it’s back and grosser than ever!

Fear the Walking Dead (Season 3)
When: Sunday, June 4th 9:00 P.M.
Network: AMC

Zombie fan?  Walking Dead fan?  If you haven’t watched this “prequel” to the cult phenomon Walking Dead, then you need to start now!  Now, in it’s third season, the show is finally coming into it’s own.  You still have time to binge watch the first 2 seasons!

Orange is the New Black (Season 5)
When: Friday, June 9th at 12:01 am
Network: Netflix

If there’s one show this summer you hole yourself up and refuse to leave the couch for, it’s this!  The ladies of Litchfield are back and after such a dramatic cliff hanger last season, you know they’re gonna be serving up some major drama this season.  Obviously, if you plan on watching, make sure you catch yourself up on all 4 seasons beforehand!

Blood Drive (New Series)
When: Wednesday, June 14th at 10:00 P.M.
Network: Syfy

Fans of the Grindhouse series (blood, guts, and gore), will love this crazy, scary, and very bizarre show! Set in the future, a couple take part in a death race with a car that runs on human blood!

Her car runs on blood. You better call her your #WomanCrushWednesday before she throws you in the engine. #BloodDrive

Game of Thrones (Season 7)
When: Sunday, July 16th at 9:00 P.M.
Network: HBO

If you haven’t started this fantastic series, what’s wrong with you?  It has everything you would want in a television show, magic, action, romance, and DRAGONS!  Do NOT start this without catching yourself up first, trust me, you’ll be lost!

The Defenders (Miniseries)
When: Friday, August 18th at 12:01 A.M.
Network: Netflix

If you’re a fan of the Marvel franchise, you’ll love this one starring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist!  They’re coming together to fight crime in New York City!


There you have it, a killer list of shows to give you the excuse you need to stay indoors and hide away this summer!
