When you think of the summer months you probably think of the beach, the sand between your toes, 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 we seek out from summer TV! 

There’s nothing wrong with indulging in the summer experience from the comfort of your couch.

Here are 12 TV shows that feel like summer:

 

The O.C.

Set in Orange County, The OC is described as a “modern” soap opera that finds Ryan exploring 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 disappoint. 

 
 

Summertime

There’s nothing more romantic than Italy’s Adriatic Coast. This Netflix series, inspired by Federico Moccaia’s book series, is an Italian web drama that chronicles the summer romance of two adults from vastly differing backgrounds. 

 

Grand Hotel 

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 Miami Beach at the forefront serving as a main character.

 

90210

Centered in the most prestigious and famous zip code in California, the series tracks 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—you’ve been warned.

 

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 worlds fuse together, they learn more about each other’s experiences and cultures. 

 

Mistresses

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. 

 

Sweet Magnolias

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 divorce and finds the strength to start over, a blossoming business idea is formed. 

 
 

The Summer I Turned Pretty

The quintessential summer show, based on the novel of the same name by Jenny Han, finds the main protagonist Belly caught up in a love triangle with two brothers, Conrad and Jeremiah, who she’s known all her life. There’s lust, love, broken hearts, and a lot of firsts as the teens navigate summer at Cousins Beach together.
 

 

Revenge

It’s not summer unless you plan a little escape to the Hamptons. Unfortunately, Emily Thorne’s version of a “chill summer” includes plotting revenge on the family next door who destroyed her father with their secrets and lies. And she does so with a martini in hand as she schmoozes the socialites of the affluent summer community! 

 

Summerland

You know when a show has “summer” in the title—and Jesse McCartney and Zac Efron are both in the cast (look them up, Gen Z’ers)—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. 

 

Cruel Summer 

The anthology series, currently airing its second season, focuses on teen characters who deal with traumatic events—including a murder mystery—over the course of three timelines, including a summer where it all begins. Life will never be the same. 

 

Outer Banks

It’s time to gear up for the treasure hunt of a lifetime with the Pogues. John B enlists his best friends to help him locate a legendary treasure that is linked to his father’s disappearance, but soon enough, they realize they aren’t the only ones with their eyes on the gold, and danger is lurking at every corner.

Walker Recap Season 3 Episode 8 Cry Uncle

The CW is gearing up for its spring TV season—and April showers are clearly going to be bringing back many highly-anticipated shows by fans. 

With plenty of CW originals going on the chopping block last year, two survivors, Walker and All American, finally have airdates for what will likely be their final seasons. 

All American Season 6 will be gracing TV screens on Monday, April 1 at 8/7c (no, this isn’t an April Fools joke), as Walker returns with Season 4 on Wednesday, April 3! 

Two surviving shows that are visibly absent from the lineup, however, are All American: Homecoming and Superman & Lois.

It’s unclear why the shows are being held back, but the hope is that they will now mark the network’s fall TV season.

As for new shows, Walker will be joined by crime drama Sight Unseen starring The Originals‘ Daniel Gillies. 

There’s also no word on a second season for The CW’s Sullivan’s Crossing starring Chad Michael Murray, Scott Patterson and Morgan Kohan, though it seems the series will be debuting in April in Canada, so fingers cross a fall return is possibly stateside. 

Here’s the full lineup for The CW spring 2024:

MONDAY, APRIL 1
8 pm All American (Season 6 premiere)
9 pm Lovers and Liars (series premiere)

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3
8 pm Walker (Season 4 premiere)

It’s Happening—’Wizards of Waverly Place’ Is Getting a Sequel With Selena Gomez

Published

In the words of the Wizards of Waverly Place theme song—yes, please

Deadline exclusively reported that Disney is reviving its hit series, starring Selena Gomez. The network has ordered a pilot for a sequel to the teen show that ran from 2007 to 2012 on Disney Channel.

And there’s definitely something to be more excited about because it’s set to be executive-produced by original stars Gomez and on-screen brother David Henrie.

That’s not all! Gomez will reportedly guest star the pilot episode to reprise her iconic role as Alex Russo, while Henrie will be a series regular in the role of Justin Russo. 

Rounding out the new cast will be Janice LeAnn Brown (Billie), Alkalio Thiele (Roman Russo), and Mimi Gianopulos (Giada) who will play Justin’s wife and kids. 

The series, hailing from the writers and producers of Raven’s Home (another spinoff of an early Disney Channel show, That’s So Raven, that found a second life) Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, will kick off with a mysterious incident as WizTech, where Justin works after surrendering his wizard powers to lead a human life. 

However, Billie soon arrives as a powerful young wizard seeking training and guidance, forcing Justin to get back to magic to save the Wizard World. 

Henrie confirmed the news on social media, sharing a photo of the pilot episode and captioning it, “The Russo’s are excited to become a part of your family, once again, but we’ve grown 😊 2024, the year magic comes back! 🪄”

Gomez also took to her Instagram Story to share a throwback photo with Henrie, writing, “We’re back.”

It’s unclear if other members of the original cast who played Justin’s parents and brother—Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise, and Jake T. Austin—along with Alex’s bestie Jennifer Stone will reprise their roles. 

But this is something worthy of celebration for all the millennials who grew up with the Russo family!

‘Roswell, New Mexico’ Star Jeanine Mason Shares Sweet Update From Wedding

Roswell, New Mexico Season Premiere Review Steal My Sunshine Season 4 Episode 1

Jeanine Mason is officially off the market!

The Roswell, New Mexico star, who announced her engagement back in March 2023, shared sweet wedding photos from her recent nuptials.

The So You Think You Can Dance champion is said to have married husband Nicholas late last year. 

She shared two intimate photos on Instagram, one of the duo kissing after they seemingly exchanged “I do’s” as their guests looked on, along with a second shot of the two cozying up to each other on the subway.

“So many thank yous to come. But for now, just one to this unbelievable man. I love you husband,” the Upload actress captioned the post, which you can see right here.

Brides got more of the scoop on the newlyweds and their big day, noting that she and Nicholas met on a dating app and later exhaling vows on the stoop of their New York City home, which is also where he proposed. 

“We thought, how fun would it be to bring our favorite people along for a weekend in our lives here in New York City and to fill all our neighborhood spots with our families and friends,” she told the outlet. “We imagined, ‘What would our ideal weekend be with our favorite people?’ and then, ‘How do we want to be married?’ We really threw tradition or answering to any standard out the window.”

With that said, they told guests to go all out with their outfits, telling them to “do the MOST.” 

Nicholas serves a major in the Army Reserves following years of active duty, so he opted for his military dress uniform.

They also used the day as an opportunity to hire as many artists as they possibly could, including a violinist to perform during the ceremony, local artists for illustrations, and florists for flowers and arches.

As for the public transit choice—that’s how everyone got to the reception! 

“We always knew we’d take the subway to the reception but this was the perfect way to start the party,” she said. 

Since Mason is Cuban, there was also plenty of music and dancing on a “large dance floor,” and she even danced the salsa with her dad as it’s a “huge part of our culture and the way we celebrate. I think we made the Cubans proud.”

Her co-stars immediately jumped into the comment section to share their congratulations—warming the hearts of The CW fans all around—as Michael Vlamis wrote “VLAMIS GOT MARRIED!!!!” Tyler Blackburn shared a series of heart emojis, Heather Hemmens wrote “So beautiful! Congrats you two!” and Lily Cowles added, “So gorgeous! Felicitaciones mi amor.”

Congrats to the happy couple—we wish you all the best on this new journey!
