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.

‘Younger’ Moving to Paramount+ for Seventh and Final Season – Watch the Emotional Sneak Peek
Younger has a new home.
After six seasons at TV Land, the hit TV show about Liza Miller, a middle-aged, divorced mom who lies about being twenty-something to restart her career in publishing, is moving to Paramount+.
ViacomCBS made the announcement during the streaming presentation on Wednesday.
Paramount+ is a new streaming service that will replace CBS All Access. on March 4.
The base tier will cost $5 and include ads. For ad-free streaming, the monthly price will set you back $10.
Now, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you’re an avid TV watcher, adding yet another streaming service to your monthly bundle might not be totally feasible.
The good news is that the 12-episode final season will also air on TV Land. The catch? It will run delayed likely after the series wraps, which means you might not avoid spoilers.
Pick your battles, I guess.
The move, while annoying for some, isn’t completely out of the blue. The series was supposed to the Paramount Network for its sixth season but ultimately stayed at TV Land.
With such a dedicated fan-base and so much potential, it doesn’t seem like 12 20-minute episodes are going to provide a satisfactory conclusion. And I don’t think I’m ready for Liza to finally choose between #TeamJosh and #TeamCharles permanently.
The seventh season was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the cast has been busy filming in New York as of late.
And that’s why fans were able to get a sneak peek at the upcoming season:
As Liza says, “embrace the past, accept the present, and keep moving forward.”
While it sure does seem like Liza picks Charles in the end, Sutton Foster promises that the final season will bring “all the emotional, all the laughs, and all the drama defined Younger and have made it the success it is.”
The series stars Foster, Hilary Duff, Nico Tortorella, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Molly Bernard, Charles Michael Davis and Peter Hermann.
Back in March, it was announced that Duff would be getting a spinoff based on her character Kelsey Peters.
