10 Most Anticipated Summer 2020 TV Series

StarTrek2

With the theatrical experience being very limited this summer, our collective attention turns to TV for new entertainment. From May to August, there are a host of new shows, returning favorites, and plenty of reality and game shows if that is your thing. Below, I have listed my 10 most anticipated series in no particular order. It should be noted that is quite possible some intriguing unannounced series of note could be unveiled within the coming weeks,

  1. Space Force- Sci-Fi comedies are extremely hard to pull off (as evidenced by HBO’s dreadful “Avenue 5.”), but can Netflix’s ambitious new show starring Steve Carell and the late Fred Willard break the mold? Time will tell. May 30

 

  1. Snowpiercer- It’s doubtful the series will live up to Bong Joon-ho’s classic sci-fi film, but I’m still tuning in to see how this one pans out. May 17.

 

  1. Star Trek: Discovery Season 3- It’s unclear if this is coming out by August (fingers crossed), but we do know it’s coming soon. Whenever it comes out, I can’t wait to see where this Trek series goes next (especially after that clever season 2 finale). Undated.

 

  1. Stargirl- I’m always game to check out a new DC Comics based series. May 18.

 

  1. Doom Patrol Season 2- Season 1 was one of the weirdest and most creative comic book shows so I’m naturally curious to see what sort of oddities are in store for the sophomore season. Also, the show has Timothy Dalton. Enough said. June 25

 

  1. Love, Victor- Remember the underrated “Love, Simon”? Well, it’s getting an offshoot with this new Hulu series. June 19

 

  1. Lovecraft Country- How can you not be excited by the prospect of a Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams produced HBO Lovecraftian horror series? Undated.

 

  1. Marvel’s Falcon and Winter Soldier- Right now, there’s no indication that this has been delayed. Hopefully, it’s still set to come out in August as this is easily the most anticipated show of the summer if not the year. Undated.

 

  1. The Good Lord Bird- Based on the novel of the same name, this Ethan Hawke starring series about freedom fighters trying to stop slavery has the potential to be one of the year’s best series. August 9

 

  1. Brave New World- Aldous Huxley’s classic sci-fi novel comes to the small screen courtesy of NBC’s Peacock streaming service. July 15
