For as long as we can remember, TV has been primarily defined by the fall season, with the spring midseason gaining ground over the years. It's a system that we have become intimately familiar with, as a majority of the best shows premiering in early autumn take a break during the winter, later returning to finish their runs by the time summer rolls around. That system has worked for years, and it used to mean the summer months was a dead zone for high-quality television.

However, the increasingly diversified platforms for television have relatively recently turned summer into an incredibly viable debut period, and we have put together a list of TV shows set for dog days debuts that actually look great. Take a look at our list, fill our your TV viewing calendars accordingly, and make sure to let us know which ones you're excited to watch this summer. Without further ado, let's kick this off with Kevin Bacon's glorious return to television this May.

*I Love Dick - May 12 *

While there's an argument to be made that May doesn't necessarily qualify as a summer month in the realm of film and television, plenty of favorite shows will have already ended their annual runs by the time May 12 rolls around, and blockbuster movies often use May for its less-crowded dates. That's where Dick comes in. I Love Dick is an utterly bizarre and intriguing Amazon original centering on a struggling married couple (Kathryn Hahn and Griffin Dunne) that is forced to contend with the fact that they have both falling in love with the same eccentric professor. It's Kevin Bacon at peak Kevin Bacon, it's from Transparent creator Jill Soloway, and we're all in.
