Summer TV Calendar: Hannibal, Liars, Mistresses, 105+ Other Dates to Save

TV Calendar Summer 2015

Just when you thought it was safe to go back outside… the summer TV slate is ready to take a chomp out of your DVR.

When do HBO’s new True Detectives report for duty? How soon will Hannibal serve its next feast? When do the Liars resume dangling the “A” carrot in front of us? On which day does Falling Skies commence its final battle?

By popular demand and as curated by a jury of one, TVLine presents this handy calendar of June and July premieres (denoted in bold), as well as select finales and specials. (I’ve also demarcated a handful of August dates-to-save, in the tinted box at bottom.) Click to zoom and save the dates! (Updated 6/2, 4 pm ET)

TV Calendar Summer 2015Preemptive P.S. My calendar-making skills have never been infallible — it’s more of a hobby, really —  so if you spot something that is (theoretically) missing (or not quite “correct”), drop a polite note in Comments and I might include it in an update.

Want scoop on any of the above shows? Email and your question may be answered via Matt’s Inside Line.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  1. Matt says:

    Can’t wait till the end of June for falling skies Graceland and the last ship. Something good to watch now that all good fall show are over

    • Julie says:

      Haven’t watched Falling Skies but agree about Graceland and The Last Ship. I wish USA hadn’t cancelled Covert Affairs. While Royal Pains can be entertainment, I wouldnt miss it on the schedule. I wish the summer USA lineup was Graceland, Suits and CA in addition to the new shows.

  2. thisismenow says:

    So no summer return for Haven? :( Is it coming back in September for 5B then? If that’s the case, they should have called it Season 6.

  3. yaskme71 says:

    Where is Longmire? Did I miss it?

  4. Ashes says:

    When does Celebrity Family Feud start?

  5. dave2442 says:

    Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell premieres Saturday, June 13, 10:00pm ET on BBC AMERICA

  6. Gil says:

    What about You’re The Worst?

  7. CourtTV says:

    I’m used to Switched at Birth and The Fosters returning at the same time. Not the case?

    • Shannon says:

      Switched at Birthday comes back August 24.

    • brandydanforth81 says:

      Fosters returns June 8,Switched at Birth Aug 24.No,they’re not returning together this summer since abcfamily decided to premier a few new summer shows

  8. Amy says:

    The season finale of Bitten is Friday June 5th. There are two hours that night, 10pm and 11pm. Defiance will be two hours on Friday June 12th.

  9. Kevin says:

    I love your calendars like this. So handy & great to bookmark. Kudos.

  10. mary says:

    Continuum is slated for the final 6 episodes end of July.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      ^—- The above information is not confirmed and, per sources, incorrect (at least regarding its Stateside release)

  11. Mr. Tran K says:

    No official word yet on who’s going to host this year’s CMT Music Awards and does anybody know when the Teen Choice Awards is set because I haven’t seen it on the calendar.

  12. Kvivik says:

    Is The Librarians going to be a fall show? And darn USA for cancelling Covert Affairs!

  13. Velocisexual says:

    Woah, ABDC is returning? How/when/where did that happen?

  14. Marissa says:

    Any word on when Drunk History is returning? I could’ve sworn it aired during the summer the past few seasons….

  15. Winnie says:

    Thank you for putting yet another one of these together. My partner is not a TVLine reader, but still appreciates the quick reference.

  16. Simon says:

    Any news on Da Vinci’s Demons Season 3 or Hemlock Grove?



  18. Donna says:

    Any word on Motive? Thanks!

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      I will ask… again… but I’m pretty sure that ship has sailed.

      UPDATE: ABC ain’t airing it.

      • Donna says:

        That’s what I was afraid of. Thanks, Matt!

      • Katherine215 says:

        That stinks! I love that show. Have to see if it’s possible to watch them online in the States.
        Btw, thanks for the calendar. I have been hoping you’d do another for summer this year!

      • Kristen says:

        Nooooooooooo! This hurts my heart!

      • Donna says:

        That bites! First Forever, now Motive. ABC is quickly losing me as a viewer.

      • RedReddington says:

        I don’t get ABC. If it wasn’t for AOS I would give up on them. Huge mistake not airing Motive, because it seemed to do well for a summer show. *smh*

        • Lizo says:

          And dirt cheap too. The show has already been filmed, what is ABC going to air in its place? Something made in house which will likely cost more and will get cancelled after one season

      • JP says:

        Season 3 running in Canada on CTV and Season 4 has just been given the green light.

    • Boiler says:

      What stupid reality show will we see instead?? Not that I care. Another dumb ABC decision

  19. Star Wars Rebels The Siege of Lothal movie on June 20th on Disney XD.

  20. Libby says:

    One to add and not miss – Masterpiece’s Poldark debuts on US shores on June 21 at 9/8c on PBS

  21. Amy says:

    Bless you, Matt, for posting this!

  22. Oliver Covington says:

    Doesn’t Doctor Who start in August??

  23. Jonathon says:

    Any word on when hard knocks begins on HBO?

  24. Luc says:

    Sucks that Da Vinci’s Demons got pushed back to August.
    Was really looking forward to that show…

  25. Beth says:

    Younger finale is June 9th

  26. Bwhit says:

    Graceland and Rookie Blue at the same time/same night. It will be a dilemma on what to watch live, not that I’m complaining :) Although if Mike is dead, Graceland will officially be the first show I have ever quit because of a character death. I just don’t see compelling story lines without him.

  27. AJJJ says:

    Rick and Morty, Season 2, July 26th on Adult Swim!

  28. Olympus season finale sometime in July on Syfy?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Yeah, this is calendar intrinsically more about premieres than scattershot finales medium, small and tiny. So, we’ll take your word for it.

  29. LADY_in_MD says:

    What about witches of east end? Oh wait… Yes I’m still bitter about that!

  30. Sarah says:

    Any news on when Syfy will be airing The Expanse?

  31. nhogan47 says:

    Soooo pumped for Rectify to be back!!

  32. Donna2712 says:

    Any news on any educational programs, specifically “Drunk History”, love to learn LOL

  33. Rowan77 says:

    Thanks Matt!

  34. Is there a date for the new season of Hell On Wheels???

  35. JGordinho says:

    Wet Hot American Summer was pushed to 31 July and BoJack Horseman is premiering 17 July

  36. suzanne says:

    Thank you! Finally feels like summer now that I have my handy-dandy, super exciting tvline summer tv calendar. Thanks so much for taking the time to put it together for us tv fanatics.

  37. Matt says:

    Faking It returns August 31st from what I read somewhere
    Any word on when Impractical Jokers returns for new episodes?

  38. Sergio says:

    I believe Faking It Season 2B premieres on August 31st at 9:30

  39. Samantha Swank says:

    Any word on Satisfaction? (It didn’t get cancelled, right?) Bummed that You’re the Worst isn’t coming on any time soon. I miss it!

  40. abyalewbayu says:

    Sense8 is premiering on Friday the 5th, not Thursday the 4th.

  41. Lizo says:

    Thanks so much for the calendar! They’re always so handy and much appreciated.

  42. Beth says:

    Survivor’s Remorse (Starz) returns 8/22, too.

  43. Boiler says:

    When does Perception premiere this summer??? Oh wait TNT and Reilly continue to be idiots

  44. realitytvfan says:

    Hey Matt

    I can’t read the calander, its kinda of blurry.


  45. Shannon says:

    I know it’s only June/July but any word on the Librarians Season 2?

  46. Faythe says:

    I feel weird being a Canadian looking at this list as Bitten has been done since the week before the states got it – as well as Rookie Blue just premiered last week here.

  47. Stern des Südens says:

    Premiere of Deutschland 83 – 6/17 @ 11 on Sundance

  48. Stern des Südens says:

    Also the premiere of Dates – 7/9 @ 9 on CW

  49. abyalewbayu says:

    This calendar is missing a lot of shows. Why don’t you use Deadline’s list to fill things in.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      My calendars are never intended to be “all-encompassing” but prudently curated; no proper human should have to sift through a half-dozen “Real Housewives” listings just to find their favorite scripted show. (But if anyone “needs” a bigger magilla, abyalewbayu just hooked you up with the link from our sister site. Grease your scroll wheel!)

  50. Dominion!! The Fosters and SYTYCD… yay
