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.
Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1932’
Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are jumping on the Yellowstone bandwagon.
The actors will star in the drama’s upcoming 1932 prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Paramount+ series follows the 1883 prequel spinoff and will introduce a new generation of Duttons.
The series has amassed a somewhat cult following, so it makes sense that the forces behind yet another origin story have decided to go big with the names attached to the project.
It’s unclear what role Ford and Mirren have been cast in, but we’re sure it’ll delight considering their impressive acting resumes.
Per the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, the drama will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”
Pandemics, huh. We know a thing or two about that.
News of the new prequel first broke in February.
“Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” 1883 executive producer David C. Glasser said via a statement, adding, “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”
It’s unclear if the plan is to have 1932 span multiple seasons or if it will be a one-season limited series like the previous prequel.
All we know is that if you’re not watching Yellowstone and the blossoming franchise, you’re doing it wrong.

‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last
It’s the end of a franchise on The CW.
The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.
The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict.
Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June.
And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series.
Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling.
The series will come to an end with its fourth season.
The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!
Bad news today. But the GOOD news is we have so much love and support from such a wonderful fandom. The biggest of hugs to all of you. Can't wait for you to see how the series ends. We're going out with a bang and you're gonna love it. #Legacies
— Legacies Writers (@LegaciesW) May 13, 2022
Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half.
It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.
