The fourth of July is a time to celebrate Independence and also, the premiere of the long-awaited third season of Stranger Things. Cue the fireworks.
And there is much to celebrate, including our overdue return to Hawkins, Indiana.
A lot has changed since we last caught up with Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Will, and Max in the fall of 2017. One thing is for certain — there’s still an imminent threat from the supernatural entities that occupy the Upside Down.

Why Isn’t ‘Younger’ Season 7 Returning This Summer?
For six seasons, Younger has been my favorite summer series. Liza’s love life feels like an endless summer romance, so while the series, which premiered in March of 2015, didn’t start off as a summer staple, it’s transformed into one with the past three seasons all premiering in June.
The lighthearted half-hour sitcom finds Liza Miller, a 40-year-old woman struggling to to re-enter the world of publishing after hiatus. When she keeps getting shown the door, she devises a plan to pretend that she’s 26, and her lie takes her on quite an adventure.
The series is fun and flirty, giving you the kind of vibe you want during the summer months.
And as the weather heats up, so do Liza’s relationships as she’s caught between composed and accomplished, Charles, and free-spirited, Josh.
However, there’s no sign of season 7 of Younger anywhere, and that’s because, it isn’t coming this summer.
Despite being renewed for a seventh season on July 2019, the series hasn’t even begun production on the upcoming season.
If production hadn’t been derailed due to the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent shutdowns, the series would have likely finished filming in time for a July premiere.
Debi Mazar (Maggie) told ET that the series was set to have their first table read on the season on March 24 with production kicking off on March 30, which is around the time all TV show and film productions shut down.
While it’s unclear when production may resume, Mazar said they are eyeing August or September, which would push the series back to a 2021 premiere likely in January.
All of this means that we’re going to be waiting a lot longer than intended to get an answer to that season 6 cliffhanger — will Liza Miller accept Charles’ proposal or will she’ll decide that her heart still pines for Josh?
And can the series ever move on from the love triangle? Do we even want it to?
While Younger season 7 would have been a great escape for all of us who have been cooped up at home and hoping to get lost in Liza and Kelsey’s world’s again, we’re just going to have to exercise some patience.
The summer won’t be the same without the series, but don’t lose all hope. As you look for your upcoming summer shows to watch, you can check out our list here!
And be sure to add The Bold Type to your list as it returns for the latter half of season 4 on June 11.

Lili is reportedly single after splitting from boyfriend of three years and Riverdale co-star, Cole Sprouse.
The pair has not commented on the news, but Cole’s twin brother, Dylan told ET that his brother has been isolating with co-star KJ Ap. “In the very beginning of quarantine ended up staying together atKJ‘s place in Los Angeles. So, they’re isolating together, which is very cute,” he teasingly said.
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.
