There's pretty much something for everyone, whether you're anxiously anticipating the return of Gossip Girllooking forward to a summer of love in the form of Love Island, or desperate for Ted Lasso to brighten your spirits. Virgin River is also on the horizon, with cliffhanger resolutions and more cliffhangers to come, while HBO is about to take us on a much-needed vacation with The White Lotus

If you're more in the mood for mystery and teenage intrigue, Outer Banks is coming back at the end of the month, while musical lovers will have an absolute ball with Apple TV+'s Schmigadoon. But of course, that's not all.
