Finding something good to watch during a slow-paced summer is tough. Sure, it's the era of peak television, but quantity doesn't always equal quality. Even though networks will program a ton of game shows, reality TV shows and made-for-TV movies this summer, finding a good new series to sink your teeth into while you wait for your faves to return in the autumn and winter can be tough.
Luckily for us, there are tons of shows premiering this summer (beginning in May and running through August) that not only run the gamut in terms of genre but can be found on a variety of networks and feature actors young and old that you know, love and will want to watch ASAP. All in their first season, the shows you're about to read up on will thrill you, chill you, make you think and might even make you look at the world a little differently.
Summer 2018 is definitely looking up, and we have the following new TV shows to thank for that.
