Hot for Summer! Your Guide to 125 Upcoming Premiere and Finale Dates

Summer TV Calendar May June 2013As May Sweeps and the “traditional” 2012-13 TV season draws to a close, it’s time to take stock of the ever-abundant summer offerings — including new seasons of True Blood, The Killing and Falling Skies, the Dexter and Burn Notice farewell tours, the series debuts of Mistresses, Devious Maids and King & Maxwell and last hurrahs for 666 Park Avenue and Zero Hour.

RELATED | Your Complete Fall TV Grid: What’s on When? And Versus What?

To help you keep tabs on what’s on tap for the remainder of May and all of June, here’s a calendar of more than 120 scripted and select reality-TV premieres (listed in bold) and finales, with a few special events — including the Bluth family’s Netflix drop — sprinkled in. A separate July/August calendar will invariably follow, but at least get your base tan first.

  • Save me is only a 3 week show? Weird…

    • It appears to be double-pumping episodes (at 8 and 8:30), at least during its first two weeks.

  • What about White Collar? Also. Everyone watch Graceland! Aaron Tveit will not disappoint you! Broadway star who’s been in such hits as Next to Normal, Wicked, Catch Me If You Can, Rent and Hairspray! He was also Enjolras in the movie version of Les Miserables!

  • Orphan Black is spelled incorrectly, but in any case, great job with this calendar. Very informative. Thanks for making it.

    • I can’t believe the Orphan Black finale is so soon! It’s such a good show. I’m not ready for the season to be over yet!

  • it seems to be a little week this summer, oh wait that’s right no Alphas, thanks a lot syfy. can’t wait for Falling skies. I might check out King & Maxwell, definitely going to watch Ray Donovan. is Lost Angels the Frank Darabont show on next year?

    Comment by James – May 19, 2013 10:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree. It does seem a bit weaker than last summer. I assume you mean weak and not week. Last summer, my DVR was just as active as it is throughout the rest of the year. It just doesn’t seem like it will be this summer.

      • thanks for catching that clearly I didn’t proof read lol. exactly me too. I’m not sure why people still watch T.V. during the summer.

        Comment by James – May 19, 2013 05:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • These are only May/June premieres. There are shows like Covert Affairs, Suits, Unforgettable, Newsroom, Breaking Bad, Low Winter Sun, Hell on Wheels, The Bridge, Orange is the New Black, Strikeback in July and August.

  • Matt_M — You are awesome!!!

  • This may not be the right place post to ask this, but is NCIS: RED totally DOA? I was really looking forward to that one. It wasn’t a “great” built-in pilot by any standard, but it’s NCIS, dammit! There’s sentiment attached here!
    Any chances of it being picked up at all, or should we say our last goodbye?

    Comment by iamsmarticus – May 19, 2013 10:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • They posted on another thread that its totally killed and the cbs heads said so.

  • What about Degrassi? Isn’t there a special airing in June?

    Comment by JISeibert – May 19, 2013 11:14 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Degrassi usually starts back up in July. At least it does up here in Canada.

  • It’s awesome to see a calendar with both Mad Men and Arrested Development on it.

  • When does The Newsroom come back?

    Comment by SP – May 19, 2013 12:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m confused. Does 666 Park Avenue start airing the last episodes on the 15th or is that when they end?

    Comment by Christine – May 19, 2013 12:47 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • They start the 15th; finale airs Aug. 3

      Comment by Matt Webb Mitovich – May 19, 2013 12:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I just read your latest post and I think you’re talking about Zero Hour but that’s ok! I’m just glad they’re giving us some closure on these shows. Wish more networks would do this for us.

  • when is the Revolution finale?

    Comment by Laura – May 19, 2013 12:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • June 3, per calendar.

      Comment by Matt Webb Mitovich – May 19, 2013 12:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Thanks! Looking forward to watching some of the new stuff.

    Comment by Kristina – May 19, 2013 01:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • This calender should become a permanent thing here on tvline. Every month should have it’s own and a premeire and finale should have it own color

    Comment by Rob – May 19, 2013 01:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree! Please Matt! The traditional Fall/Spring viewing season is completely gone and this type of calendar would really help people that are trying to DVR/HULU/Netflix shows.

      Comment by knpoduch – May 20, 2013 09:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • And the calendars should be on their own tab – have asked for this before….not fun trying to figure out which story contains a link to the latest calendar. Also – please save it in landscape format.

        Comment by j – May 21, 2013 08:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I TOTALLY agree. Please do a ONGOING season premiere/finale calendar! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!

  • How did 666 Park Avenue get on June 15? Are they giving it a second season? I liked it but heard it was cancelled.

    Comment by bobbie – May 19, 2013 01:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It is cancelled. They are just airing the last few episodes.

      Comment by Ericka – May 19, 2013 02:05 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Looks great for a summer schedule. Is there any Haven on the horizon? TNT has been doing great with shows, except that they tend to cancel them :P

    Comment by bobbie – May 19, 2013 01:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Haven, I believe, does start back up until October, like last season. Partially because Emily is a new mom.

      Comment by Miranda – May 21, 2013 05:10 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • DROP DEAD DIVA is coming back this summer? Before I do the happy dance, can anyone confirm this because from what I remember it was renewed late & they didn’t even start shooting

    • Never mind, it’s true!!!!! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

  • I thought Under the Dome was an actual summer series, not just a miniseries?

    Comment by Jon – May 19, 2013 02:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’s like when they did Harper’s Island a few years ago. There will be a full 12-13 episodes but it isn’t meant to be a series that will get renewed. It’s just a stand alone.

      Comment by Christine – May 20, 2013 04:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Continuum returns June 7th? Yaay! But I don’t understand why SyFy moved it from Mondays to Fridays at 10 p.m. Wasn’t it doing well for the network in its Monday time slot? Why the shift to the graveyard day and time slot?

    Comment by Maria – May 19, 2013 02:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Maybe SyFy didn’t want to go up against Under the Dome?

  • Breaking Bad? I know it’s this summer but not sure when. Can’t wait for it!!

    Comment by Mary – May 19, 2013 03:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • August 11

      Comment by Alban – May 19, 2013 05:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • July 15th, not August.

      Comment by knpoduch – May 20, 2013 09:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • No. Aug 11 is correct.

  • Should I watch Scandal (I know it’s not a summer show) or Dexter???

    Comment by luli – May 19, 2013 07:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • YES you should watch Scandal!!! It would be really easy to catch up on this summer. The first season is only 7 eps and then this season was the full 22 but its so addicting that you will want to keep watching! It is one of my favorite shows one TV and trust me when I say I watch a lot of shows and no the good ones from the bad ones!

      Comment by tanner15 – May 19, 2013 09:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • You watch a lot of shows and don’t recommend Dexter over Scandal? Weird.
        @luli: Watch em both. Dexter is brilliant and Scandal is crazy addictive.

        Comment by GK – May 20, 2013 03:13 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I would start with Scandal too. It’s much easier to catch up since there are far fewer episodes. Scandal is a great show. Well written and different than most shows I’ve seen. Dexter is supposed to be great too. I’ve tried to watch and catch up for the new season, but there are just so many episodes its taking forever.

  • Is FOX ever going to burn off the last episodes of Ben and Kate?!!

  • Thank you for including Push Girls! I’ve never been into realtiy shows but this one is inspiring. More people should check it out.

  • Thanks for this, I’ll be watching Major Crimes, Rizzoli and Isles and Perception. I thought the last series of the Glades was a bit lacklustre, I’ll see how I feel this year after an episode or two! Do love me some Frankln and bash too..*sigh* they make it difficult to enjoy the outdoors with all of these summer shows!!
