Summer’s only a month away, and you know what that means: new TV!
Sure, I could go outside and enjoy the sunshine and the company of others, but if I’m being honest with myself, I’m really just going to sit inside and enjoy the company of real friends like Jon Snow.
To help with my summer planning, I’ve put together a calendar of all the returns I’m looking forward to over the coming months.
Married at First Sight
Are you ready for a lifelong commitment with a complete stranger? On Married at First Sight three couples are paired up by relationship experts, who agree to marry when they first meet! The couples enjoy their wedding with family and friends, spend their wedding night in a hotel before leaving for a honeymoon and upon returning home, they live together as a married couple for six weeks. Once the six weeks are over they choose to divorce or stay married.
This season my favorite couple is Anthony and Ashley, they have great chemistry, they have similar interest, and they seem like they could be lifelong partners. I know it’s still very early, but I’m rooting for them!
Premiered April 20, episodes available on Lifetime website/app or on demand.
House of Cards
I love House of Cards, but I’m not sure I’m ready to stomach another morally challenged politician disdaining the American people and ramming his way through every convention and rule.
Premieres May 30 on Netflix
Orange is the New Black
Game of Thrones
Saved the best for last. Go ahead and cancel all of your future summer Sunday night plans starting now because Winter is finally here.
Here’s what we know:
- This new season will be shorter; past seasons have run 10 episodes, this one will only run 7.
- They’ve upped the per-episode budget, so if you enjoy episodes like “Battle of the Bastards” this is actually good news.
- Some new actors may be joining the cast. Look for Jim Broadbent, Joseph Quinn, Tom Hopper and Ed Sheeran…?
In the meantime, if you need me, I’ll be on the couch rewatching the whole series.
Premieres July 16 on HBO
