When you think of summer, you think of the beach, the sand between your toes, some margaritas, the breeze in your hair, and maybe even a flirty and fleeting summer romance.
If you’re an avid TV watcher, you might even think summer affair or thrilling murder. It’s totally normal. Why? Because these are all things that make up summer TV shows that we love to watch and get lost in.
Memorial Day weekend is the “unofficial” kickoff to summer, but many of us are quarantining at home and obeying stay-at-home orders, which means, we’ll be getting some good ole’ fashion summer experiences from our couch.
Here are some TV shows that feel like summer:
Set in Orange County, The OC is described as a “modern” soap opera that finds Ryan brought into the world of wealthy and sun-kissed high schoolers after he’s taken in by a lawyer and his family. Even if you’ve seen the show plenty of times before, the warm weather and high school elite drama never disappoints.
When you think of a base for some of the government’s best agents from the DEA, the FBI, and ICE, you don’t think of a beachfront home in Southern California. Neither did FBI Rookie agent Mike, who is fresh out of Quantico training when he arrives at the sandy doorstep that’s a far cry from his Washington desk job.
There’s nothing more romantic than Italy’s Adriatic Coast. Netflix’s new series, inspired by Federico Moccaia’s book series, is an Italian web drama that chronicle the summer romance of two adults from vastly differing background.
It’s summer all year round in Miami and at the Grand Hotel, a family-owned hotel, the fun never stops. But when a hurricane results in the death of one of the hotel’s staff members, people begin asking questions. It’s a scandalous, explosive, and luxurious drama with with Miami Beach’s essence at the forefront.
Centered in the most prestigious and famous zip-code in California, the series follows the journey of a group of high schoolers on their way to adulthood as they navigate complex situations and pursue their dreams. The series is a reboot of the iconic Beverly Hills, 90210. Expect a lot of beach parties.
Baker and the Beauty
The series brings the flavor of Miami’s Little Havana to the forefront of a love story between local “baker boy” Daniel, who helps run his family’s small business, and worldwide superstar, Noa Hamilton. As their world’s fuse together, they learn more about each other’s experiences and cultures.
The power of strong female relationships is explored in this thrilling drama. Four female friends depend on each other and turn to each other for advice about their scandalous lives and illicit relationships including divorce, relationships with a patient, and more.
Raise a glass of sweet iced tea on a summer day to new beginnings! The new Netflix romance drama, based on a novel of the same name, finds four lifelong friends helping each other deal with the ups-and-downs of life, relationships, and careers in a small Southern town. As one of the characters deals with a divorce and finds the strength to start over, a blossoming business idea is formed.
You can’t have a summer without a little escape to the Hamptons. Unfortunately, Emily Thorne’s version of a “chill summer” includes plotting revenge on the next door family who destroyed her father and ruined her family. And she does with with a martini in hand as she schmoozes the socialites of the affluent summer community!
You know when a show has “summer” in the title and Jesse McCartney and Zac Efron are both in the cast, it’s going to be filled with moments that remind you of warmer days by the seaside. Ava Gregory’s life gets turned upside down when her sister and brother-in-law die in a car accident and she becomes the guardian of their three teen children. One could say it’s a “full house.” And needless to say, everyone has to adjust to their new lifestyle.

Lili is reportedly single after splitting from boyfriend of three years and Riverdale co-star, Cole Sprouse.

Cole recently took to Instagram to reveal he was arrested for peacefully protesting George Floyd’s murder.
Where Is Aunt Becky? Character’s Absence Explained on Final Season of ‘Fuller House’ as Lori Loughlin Faces Jail Time
From the Full House to the big house. Well, at least Lori Loughlin, who is most famously known for her role of Aunt Becky on the wholesome and cheeky family series that debuted in the 80s, has agreed to plead guilty to paying people off to get her daughter’s into college.
Meanwhile, Fuller House, which dropped its final season on June 2nd, explained Aunt Becky’s absence in a less dramatic way.
In a brief scene, Uncle Jesse informs the Tanner-Fuller-Gibbler clan that Aunt Becky is taking care of her mother in Nebraska. In other words, she’s not involved in criminal activity like Loughlin.
The character isn’t mentioned again, but her absence is felt throughout moments in the series, particularly in the series finale as the three leading ladies wed their soulmates in a triple wedding.
It’s unfortunate that Aunt Becky suffered because of Loughlin’s actions.
In th real world, Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $50,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as fake crew team recruits.
According to CNN, Loughlin will plead guilty to the following crimes: conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud.
Her agreements require her to serve two months in prison.
Her husband will plead guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud. He’ll serve five months in prison.
Loughlin also faces a $150,000 fine, two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service, according to the news source. He will get $250,000 fine, two years of supervised release and 250 hours of community service.
They are reportedly set to plead guilty on Friday, per prosecutors.
The scandal has, understandably, rocked Loughlin’s world and cost her some longtime acting gigs on her Hallmark Channel series, Where Calls the Heart, and the Full House spinoff, Fuller House. As it enters its fifth and final season, the Netflix will move forward without her character.
It’s a hard lesson to learn, but don’t try to bribe your children’s way into college.
While I’ve always loved Lori Loughlin in every production (mainly cause I thought of her as my own Aunt Becky), if you have the nerve to dish it, you have to know how to take it.
Ben Affleck, Keke Palmer, Ariana Grande and More Celebrities Protest George Floyd’s Murder
Over the past few days, protests have taken to every major city across America to fight racial injustice and police brutality.
The protests aim to condemn the senseless and tragic death of George Floyd, an African American man who was killed by a white police officer who knelt on his neck for over 8 minutes.
While many protests took a violent turn with riots and looting breaking out, it’s important to note that plenty remained and continue to remain peaceful as they fight for justice and equality.
A handful of celebrities have been very vocal in their support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Chrissy Teigen vowed to donate $200,000 to organizations that help bail out protestors.
Others took to the streets to march with protestors.
Ariana Grande documented her experience at a Los Angeles protest on Saturday afternoon. She wore a mask and a sign that read “Black Lives Matter.”

Cole Sprouse opened up about being arrested for peacefully protesting in Santa Monica. In his Instagram note, he explained that despite dispersing as police ordered, all protestors were arrested regardless.

A group of peaceful protesters, myself included, were arrested yesterday in Santa Monica. So before the voracious horde of media sensationalism decides to somehow turn it about me, there’s a clear need to speak about the circumstances: Black Lives Matter. Peace, riots, looting, are an absolutely legitimate form of protest. the media is by nature only going to show the most sensational, which only proves a long standing racist agenda. I was detained when standing in solidarity, as were many of the final vanguard within Santa Monica. We were given the option to leave, and were informed that if we did not retreat, we would be arrested. When many did turn to leave, we found another line of police officers blocking our route, at which point, they started zip tying us. It needs to be stated that as a straight white man, and a public figure, the institutional consequences of my detainment are nothing in comparison to others within the movement. This is ABSOLUTELY not a narrative about me, and I hope the media doesn’t make it such. This is, and will be, a time about standing ground near others as a situation escalates, providing educated support, demonstrating and doing the right thing. This is precisely the time to contemplate what it means to stand as an ally. I hope others in my position do as well. I noticed that there are cameras that roll within the police cruisers during the entirety of our detainment, hope it helps. I’ll speak no more on the subject, as I’m (1) not well versed enough to do so, (2) not the subject of the movement, and (3) uninterested in drawing attention away from the leaders of the #BLM movement. I will be, again, posting the link in my story to a comprehensive document for donations and support.
Singer Halsey also marched in a Los Angeles protest and shared videos on social media about police officers fighting back crowds. Other videos captured her and Yungblud helping protestors who were hit with tear gas. She explained that they were also hit with rubber bullets even thought “we did not breach the line.”
They also held signs that read “Black Lives Matter” and chanted with crowds.
I WAS NOT ARRESTED.

Keke Palmer has gone viral for a very powerful video in which she pleads with the National Guard to march with the protestors and be the change. While they couldn’t necessarily leave their post and march because of orders, they did offer to walk to the protestors and took a knee for them.
