10 New TV Shows to Watch This Summer


The Washington Post has compiled a list of 10 new television series premiering this summer that you should seriously consider watching. Here they are:

  1. Perpetual Grace, LTD (Sundays at 10 p.m. on Epix; premiered June 2). An artfully envisioned 10-episode drama for viewers who are most at home in remote locations (in this case, rural New Mexico).
  2. Das Boot (Hulu, Monday, June 17). Wolfgang Petersen’s classic 1981 film about a Nazi U-boat gets a sequel in this eight-episode, German-made TV series.
  3. The Lavender Scare (WETA and MPT at 9 p.m., Tuesday June 18. Check local PBS listings). Based on David K. Johnson’s book, this series examines an early outrage from the ‘50s, when the U.S. government began purging its federal employee ranks of any man or woman suspected of being homosexual.
  4. What Just Happened??! (FOX at 9:30 p.m., Sunday, June 30). This is a spoof of those live after-shows such as AMC’s “Talking Dead,” where guests excitedly deconstruct what just happened on the previous episode of their favorite drama — in this case, a show called “The Flare.”
  5. The Loudest Voice (Showtime at 10 p.m., Sunday, June 30). Russell Crowe stars in this seven-part miniseries as the late the FOX News impresario Roger Ailes.
  6. I Love You, Now Die: The Commonwealth v. Michelle Carter (HBO at 8 p.m., Tuesday, July 9 and Wednesday, July 10). The two-night special chronicles the trial of a young Massachusetts woman accused of urging her boyfriend to kill himself through persistent texts and calls.
  7. South Side (Comedy Central at 10:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 24). Loosely organized around the dreams of two recent community college grads, the series follows them through one hustle after another.
  8. Four Weddings and a Funeral (Hulu, Wednesday, July 31). This anthology series follows four American friends who are all 30–three of whom settled in London after college.
  9. BH90210 (FOX at 9 p.m., Wednesday, August 7). The original cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 returns to play “heightened versions” of themselves: actors who have been convinced to come back and resume the roles that made them super-famous nearly 30 years ago.
  10. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (Netflix, Friday, August 30). This prequel series takes advantage of four decades of technological advancements in movie magic, blending puppetry with CGI.
