Question: do you need to put on sunblock when the only sun you plan on catching this summer comes from the glow of your TV screen?

Seriously, who needs beaches, boat rides, popsicles and pool parties and when there's binge-watching to be done?! This summer season in particular is jampacked with so much good TV you'll have no reason to leave your house. (Except for snacks, of course. Grab us some Peanut Butter M&M's and Diet Coke, would ya?!)

We've compiled a thorough list of all the can't-miss premiere dates, from Pretty Little Liars, Orange Is the New Black and Teen Wolf's highly anticipated returns to Andi Dorfman's debut as The Bachelorette. Plus, 24: Live Another Day finally begins its countdown again and True Blood kicks off its final season. And we're also running down all of the new series, including Halle Berry's small screen debut in Extant, HBO's The Leftovers, Showtime's Penny Dreadful and more, you can't miss this summer season...
