Although spring is a beautiful time of year, let’s be honest, as soon as it rolls around, we’re already thinking about summer and the long, lazy days ahead. Where we might have a bit of pause, though, is thinking about what we’re going to watch on TV. With the shows that started in the fall and winter now winding down, we must look to summer programming — which, historically, hasn’t gotten much fanfare. But this year is different, with plenty of shows (both network and streaming) in this year’s crop of newcomers that are worth a watch.
Some have been hyped up so much that it’s impossible not to look forward to them, like Netflix’s zombpocalyptic Black Summer or DC’s Swamp Thing. But there are way more pleasant surprises sure to pique viewers’ interest. Have you seen the previews for Lake Bell and Dax Shepard’s Bless This Mess? Hilarious. How about Hulu’s Catch-22 miniseries starring none other than George Clooney, Christopher Abbott, Kyle Chandler and Hugh Laurie? Epic.
So, mark your calendar for the following summer 2019 TV shows coming soon — they’re sure to make for ideal warm-weather viewing.
