When Do My Favorite Cable Shows Return?


Sadly, the answer to the above question, "When do my favorite cable shows return?" is not for awhile, at least for some of them.


Kristin at E!Online has done a nice job summarizing when most of the major cable shows will be coming back for your viewing pleasure. Though most of these shows have been summer shows in the past, the strike has pushed many of them to either Fall '08 or even sometime during the first half of 2009.


Here is what is known about the return of a bunch of shows, separated by network:


HBO

Entourage - September 2008

True Blood - This is a new show from Alan Ball (Six Feet Under), also premiering in September 2008

Big Love - Early 2009

Flight of the Conchords - Early 2009

Tell Me You Love Me - Summer 2009 at the earliest, though nothing is official


Showtime

Californication - September 2008

Dexter - September 28, 2008


FX

The Shield - September 2008

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - September 2008

Damages - Early 2009

Nip/Tuck - Early 2009

Rescue Me - Spring 2009, with 10 minute minisodes this summer

Dirt and The Riches - no dates for either; both might be gone for good - especially Dirt


Other Networks

Mad Men - returning to AMC sometime in July 2008

Kyle XY - returning to ABC Family in January 2009


Which show are you most eagerly awaiting to return??

What about Bones? I'm most eagerly awaiting the return of Bones! I can't wait! I've heard August 26th somewhere, but I don't remember where and sometimes they change the premiere date.

No worries, you'll be seeing some of those shows back, but all shows mentioned here except Weeds are network shows instead of cable shows which are the only ones noted here. Weeds comes back Monday, June 16th, then most network shows like Grey's, Ugly Betty, Bones, etc. will come back in the fall. You can check for dates on these on the show pages under status or here:
