Whether you prefer to watch TV live, on your DVR, or a mix of both, it’s time to start planning.  And for those shows returning for their second or seventh season, its time to start catching up! On a sweltering hot day of Summer, what could be better than cranking the AC and cuddling up on the couch to binge watch on the big screen? Here are the shows you should be catching up on this Summer,

Modern Family

Season 7 arrives September 23, 2015

The  Season 6 finale left us on a cliff hanger to Hayley and Andy’s relationship. Where will Season 7 take star-crossed lovers Haley and Andy when Modern Family returns this fall? While we wait for the return, let Phil Dunphy and the dads of ABC introduce you to the Dad Bod.

Season 5 arrives September 24, 2015

We last saw Olivia Pope in the arms of President Fitzgerald Grant at the White House. Wrapped in his arms. Kissing him. What does this mean for season 5?  We will have to wait until September when Scandal and TGIT returns!

Season 3 arrives October 9, 2015

Take the sexy young things of ‘Gossip Girl,’ throw them into a period drama like ‘The Tudors,’ mix it all up with the spooks of ‘Supernatural,’ and you’ve got Reign. For those not in the know, Reign tells the story of Mary, the teen Queen of Scots, as she negotiates love, duty and assignation attempts in the French court. The costumes of these Scottish lassies, Mary included, are EVERYTHING.

Season 5 arrives Fall 2015

In case you’ve been in a cave for the past 4 seasons, Homeland is debatably the best drama on TV. Why is Homeland such a hit with critics and fans? The acting is outstanding. It’s politically thought-provoking. The provocative depiction of mental illness. Need I say more?

The Last Man on Earth

Season 2 arrives September 22, 2015

Will Forte’s passion project gets another 13 episodes for the new season after strong critical favor and surprising ratings success on Fox’s Sunday block. For those who have not seen The Last Man on Earth, Will Forte plays Phil Miller, who seems to be the last person alive after a deadly virus sweeps the planet. Phil travels around the country, steals priceless items from the White House, and then settles in a Tucson, Arizona mansion to live out the rest of his days.

Season 6 arriving in 2016

Oh, Shameless. Considering how crazy any given episode of this show can get, it seems like sometimes, the Showtime series can’t do anything that’s surprising anymore. But that hasn’t been the case so far. In case you haven’t watched Shameless yet, the series follows the dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father of six children. While he spends his days drunk, his kids learn to take care of themselves.That’s the tame version of the premise.

Season 2 arriving Spring 2016

The science fiction drama created by Andy & Lana Wachowski along with J.Michael Straczynski, follows eight strangers around the globe that find themselves connected -first by a violent vision, then by their shared ability to connect with one another’s thoughts and actions, and finally by the urgent need to find out what happened and why. Because what the kids actually do to take care of themselves as well as what Frank does to survive is borderline insane.

Where to find it: Netflix

Orphan Black

Season 4 arriving in 2016

This Canadian sci-fi phenomenon has been getting rave reviews for star Tatiana Maslany, who plays something like 89 different characters. Talk about a seriously talented actress!

Where to find it: Amazon Prime, iTunes, google play
