Remember, years ago, when television seemed to be completely dead for the summer and we were left with nothing but reruns and poor reality shows? Never again! There is a lot of great television happening this June (and all summer) that will keep us occupied on those days when it’s too hot to go outside. From the return of USA and ABC Family dramas to the unfortunate end of two great FX series, here are the biggest TV events to watch in June.
Let’s get this one out of the way first: All you care about this month is Orange is the New Black. That’s fine! That’s all we care about, too. Thirteen brand-new episodes will arrive on Netflix in one big chunk at midnight so we can watch all weekend and talk about it on Monday morning. Season 2, which goes even darker than the first season, introduces new characters (watch out for Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) who battles with Red) and continues the bleak but funny adventures of the rest of the Litchfield inmates.
