Looks like you all have some burning Q's about summer's hottest TV series after checking out our fabulous printable calendar of summer premiere dates, so we've done some investigating on your behalf and have answers for you about Mad Men, Big Brother and Psych!

Julia in Las Vegas: When are they airing the two-hour Prison Break wrap-up movie?

The Prison Break: The Final Break movie is DVD-only for us Americans! If you happen to live in Israel, you could have seen it on regular TV already, but if you're stateside, you have to go out to Target or Best Buy on July 21 to pick up the DVD.

Drarry: When do Monk and Psych premiere?
We just found out this very morning that Monk and Psych will be back on Aug. 7 at 9 and 10 p.m., respectively. By the way, in case you aren't following them already, you can stalk the Psych writers on Twitter.

Sugarshack: What about the episodes of Samantha Who?
ABC assures us they will air the seven remaining episodes of their canceled comedy Samantha Who? but an actual premiere date remains to be determined.

Josh: What about Big Brother 11?
We can't get a Big Brother 11 premiere date out of either the network or the production company, but the current unconfirmed Internet guesstimate is July 7.

Kerri: Where is Mad Men? I'm most looking forward to that show.
AMC says only that it will premiere "August 2009," but the best rumor is that Mad Men season three premieres on Sun., Aug. 16.

Jeni: What about Sons of Anarchy?
FX just confirmed that Sons of Anarchy is returning in early September, but there is no exact premiere date yet.

Madisyn: What about Dexter and Californication?
season four and Californication season three are scheduled to premiere together on Showtime in late September. Hang in there for an exact date.

Mary in Ypsilanti, Mich.: When is Brotherhood coming back? Was it canceled?
is very much in limbo. There has been no official order for season four, but then again it also hasn't been officially dropped by Showtime. (Of course, you can always extrapolate your own unofficial verdict if you'd like. Remember Fionnula Flanagan told us back in February: "Usually the shooting season [for Brotherhood] was the summer, so I should imagine that we'll know soon." Hmmm…) We'll let you know as soon as there is any new news.

Aimee: Is The Starter Wife coming back this summer? Sure hope so!
Sorry, The Starter Wife was canceled earlier this year for poor ratings.

Alice: What about the remaining episodes of Kings?
The final seven episodes of Kings will air on NBC beginning June 13 at 8 p.m. ABC burn offs what's left of Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money beginning May 30, June 20 and July 18, respectively. And you can see Ronald D. Moore's Virtuality pilot (which was not picked up to series) on Fox on July 4 at 8 p.m.

Ryan: But, Team WWK, what should we actually watch this summer?
In two words or less? Burn Notice. However, if you need more words and more TV, hang in there for our upcoming rundown of the shows you should watch this season and the shows you can skip in favor of actually going outside to enjoy the summer sun!
