    Here Are The Premiere Dates For 2015's Summer TV

    Set your DVRs for the return of Orange Is the New Black and Hannibal and the debut of Scream and Sense8.

    Just because some of your regular-season favorites are signing off, that doesn't mean television is lacking this summer. With the slew of season finales also comes the kickoff of brand-new shows and returning favorites. Along with intriguing reality TV offerings like The Briefcase, the always amazing So You Think You Can Dance, and E!'s Bruce Jenner docuseries, there's plenty of new scripted television to get excited about, like Netflix's Sense8, ABC's The Astronaut Wives Club, NBC's Aquarius, and MTV's Scream. Returning champs include the incomparable Orange Is the New Black and Hannibal. So program that DVR and settle in. It's too hot to be outside anyway.
