While summertime signifies a 3-month hiatus for many fall and mid-season series, it also means the long-awaited returns of SideReel's favorite summer shows! Cool off with Country Time Lemonade and other traditional summer pastimes inspired by the hottest seasonal series, from dramas like Breaking Bad and True Blood to guilty pleasures like Pretty Little Liars and Drop Dead Diva and more!
True Blood Returns June 26th!
When she's not off rescuing Bill from rogue werewolf covens or saving her own soul from blood-thirsty vampires, Sookie still manages to kick back and relax! Be sure to tune in to HBO on June 26th to see how the fourth installment of summer's most suspenseful series unfolds, including witches, werepanthers, and Eric Northman -- oh my! Sookie may not have quite as much time to lounge on the lawn with a glass of lemonade this season, but we're sure the drama won't disappoint!
Pretty Little Liars Season 2 Continues!
The second season of ABC Family hit series Pretty Little Liars officially kicked off on June 14th, and it's already clear that the 'Liars' will have a whole lot more trouble ahead than just sipping lemonade at Camp Mona! With Ian missing and A still up to her own tricks, will Aria, Spencer, Hanna, and Emily be able to stick together and solve the mystery before someone else gets hurt, or someone separates them for good? It's bound to be an eventful summer, that's for sure!
The Final Season of Entourage Kicks Off This July!
It's time to give the 'Entourage' gang their proper send-off! Season 8 -- the next and final season of the long-running HBO hit -- premieres in July, and summer just won't be the same without Vince's roller-coaster career highs and lows, Ari Gold's one-liners, and Drama's... well, drama. When Vince, E, and the gang aren't hitting up the red carpet or schmoozing with potential new clients, they're always kicking back at their mansion pool with a cold one. Do the same with Country Time and enjoy the last summer with 'Entourage'!
Drop Dead Diva's Back For a 3rd Round of Laughs!
Hilarious, heart-warming, and chock-full of feel-good moments, Lifetime summer favorite Drop Dead Diva, starring Brooke Elliot, is with more to love for a 3rd season! Season 3 premiered on June 19th, and our favorite attorney arrived accompanied with lots of celebrity cameos to kick off the summer in style! Dream sequence or not, with so many break-out dance numbers and high-energy guest-stars like Paula Abdul, Brandy, Lance Bass, and more, this cast knows how to stay energized, so don't forget your favorite summer beverage when you're enjoying the summer heat & seasonal programming!
New Summer Series Teen Wolf Starts Off Strong!
Scott McCall has a whole lot more to deal with than your average high school student. Typical summer activities like hanging out with friends, barbecues at the park, and cooling off with a glass of Country Time are more like cover-ups to hide his dangerous secret life as a teenage werewolf! If he plays his cards right, though, he'll still have plenty of opportunity for a summer fling, but can love interest Allison accept him for who he really is? It's not too late to catch up on the new MTV series that has everyone howling for more!
