Once upon a time not so long ago, the arrival of summer meant the end of original TV series until fall season kicked off, and viewers were often stuck with reruns, reality shows, and the occasional special. Fortunately, there are way more options for the small screen over the summer nowadays, and fans of just about every genre can find something worth watching on network and cable TV alike.

If you're not up on when all of your favorite returning shows and the most promising new shows will hit the airwaves this summer, you're in luck. We have a breakdown of the summer TV premiere dates to help you plan your viewing schedule in the coming months. We'll update the schedule as soon as new dates are announced, so be sure to bookmark the page and check back. For the shows that are still left in the spring lineup, swing by our midseason TV premiere guide.

(All times, unless otherwise specified, are in ET. Brand new series will be listed all caps.)
