The TVLine-Up: What's Returning, New and Leaving the Week of July 4

Virgin River Season 3 Returns on Netflix

This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings and monthly guide to What’s on Streaming.

With nearly 500 scripted shows now airing across broadcast, cable and streaming, it’s easy to forget that a favorite comedy is returning, or that the new “prestige drama” you anticipated is about to debut. So consider this our reminder to set your DVR, order a Season Pass, pop a fresh Memorex into the VCR… however it is you roll.

This week, you’ll find a dozen series debuts (including the Gossip Girl reboot, the Leverage revival and a Monsters Inc. sequel series), 11 returning series (including Big Brother, Love Island and Virgin River) and myriad films and specials (including several 4th of July spectaculars, Marvel’s Black Widow and the Anthony Mackie-hosted ESPYS).
