I spend most of my weekends catching up on my favourite television shows. So it’s safe to say that I get the excitement of having your favourite show be renewed for another season. Losing track of what’s coming back and what isn’t? Well, here’s a roundup of our favourite shows that are making a comeback on small screens this year.
1. Orange is The New Black, S04:
The show that humanizes criminals, showcases LGBTQ issues in a light that brings reality to us and has unbelievable amounts of nudity is back. Critically acclaimed with a bunch of Emmies under its belt, this show quickly became a pop culture phenomenon. Also, it’s the first ever television show to portray a transgender being played BY a transgender – ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the beautiful Laverne Cox for the fourth time in June of 2016.
One of my favourite weekend binges, this brainchild of Ryan Murphy enthralled its audiences in S01 by providing them with a unique combination of horror, comedy, and fashion. A show that constantly spoofed itself, was unashamedly ridiculous, and yet somehow kept the audiences at the edge of their seats; Scream Queens is well on its way to being yet another Ryan Murphy success story. Get ready to scream in style in October 2016.
Our favourite kickass, quirky doctor is back! Mindy Kaling has defied rom-com clichés with her quirkily scripted sitcom, taking us into the heartwarming and adorable romance of Daniel and Mindy. A show that celebrates all body types, personalities, and colours is slated to air in the Summer of 2016.
The ‘Desperate Housewives’ spinoff has brought us scandal, extremely sexy chemistry, insanely attractive maids, and even more insanely attractive houses. It tells us the story of 4 maids of the rich and famous with their steadfast friendships, their struggles with money, their dreams and their unexpected involvement in scandal. Again, one of my favourite weekend binges, this spicy show is set to grace our screen once again this summer.
While everyone mourns the exit of the beautiful Elena, production house ITV has wasted no time in getting the show back while it’s still a hot topic. The show that tells us the stories of extremely good looking vampires (Ian Somerhalder – every girl’s hottest dream and nightmare), immortality, and death has enthralled audiences for 6 seasons, what with its doses of romance and action to enthrall fans of every genre, keeping the show steadfastly alive. As the days grow longer and the nights become shorter, say hello to the vampire brothers again.
6. Homeland S6:
Carrie has a kid, Brody is dead, and basically everyone we ever really cared about from Homeland apart from Saul and Carrie are dead. This hard-hitting show is the darling of both critics and audiences alike and tells a highly dramatized story of the American CIA’s fight against terrorism. Initially praised for humanizing terrorism and then criticized for promoting racial clichés, this controversial yet addictive show will make its reappearance in the October of 2016.
So there you have it. As nerdy as it may seem, I know a lot of us are looking forward to these. If there’s a show we’ve missed out on then drop a comment and let us know. Stay awesome, relax, and enjoy your favourite shows, you amazingly nerdy people!
