Summer TV shows are back in full force and the choices are endless. We are currently in a television Golden Age, where the number of quality TV programs is at an all time high. What shows will you watch this summer? Here’s a short list to help you get started!

1. Orange is the New Black

The show was a breakout hit after its first season was released in July 2013 and fans of the show eagerly waited for Season 2. The show, set in a minimum-security women’s prison in New York State, has received critical acclaim as well as positive viewer reception. Plus, there’s lots of awards’ season talk around the show and its cast as we get closer to the Emmy’s this August, so put this one at the top of your list.

2. True Blood

For the final season, they amped up the drama and the stakes (pun intended) are higher than ever. Who will make it out alive? Tune in to find out.

3. Pretty Little Liars

Another HBO creation, this brand new show just premiered on June 29th. The show, from the co-creator of Lost, is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Tom Perrotta. The show is set in the fictional town of Mapleton, New York three years after a “Rapture” that caused 2% of the world’s population to disappear without a trace. The show has received positive reviews and stars Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, Amy Brenneman, and Christopher Eccleston. And yes, it is the same Christopher Eccleston who played the Ninth Doctor on Doctor Who!
