Although 2016 was a year full of ups and downs, there is no denying that it was an amazing year for television. We cheered as Donald Glover brought Atlanta’s culture to fruition, found our inner strength watching Luke Cage and stressfully decided if we were #TeamIssa or #TeamLawrence during the season finale of Insecure. Now that the colder months are coming to a close, you may find yourself compelled to get out the house and part ways with the television which kept you company during those cold winter nights.
The good news is, several television series are making a comeback sooner than you think. The bad news is, Netflix will still probably be the pending transaction that makes you overdraft in your account. But before you shed your winter fur, here are eight television series returning this summer.
