Channel: AMC
Date: May 22

AMC is trying to replicate the successful formula of its hit show The Walking Dead by premiering a new series that depicts at least as much as profanity, violence, and rawness as the former mentioned. Like the ultra popular zombie series, Preacher is based off a comic book and it depicts the deeds of a violent and power-loaded priest, his ex-girlfriend, and a vampire as they seek to challenge God.

#2 Wayward Pines

His latest work is the FOX series Wayward Pines, which is a mystery science fiction that tells the tale of Secret Service agent Ethan. After arriving to investigate a mysterious disappearance in the Idaho town of Wayward Pines, he suddenly wakes up after a car accident realizing he can’t leave.

Channel: Lifetime
Date: June 6

Did you ever think that Lifetime was capable of producing something other than cheesy soap operas? Then UnREAL will probably be a real shocker for you. The series is a dark comedy drama that tells the story of a reality director who is pushed beyond her limits by her boss to step over integrity in order to boost up viewership for the show.

#5 Orange is the New Black

Upcoming Shows

Channel: Netflix
Date: June 17

Yes, OITNB is returning to your favorite binging streaming network. But, unlike other entries on this list, it’s not just the fourth season that’s been confirmed, with the fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons being prematurely confirmed too. Shows that Netflix has a lot of faith for its original series. And who can blame them?

#6 The Night Of

Upcoming Shows

Channel: HBO
Date: July 10

True Detective’s second season was pretty much a flop, but that doesn’t undermine HBO’s talent at masterfully pulling off crime dramas. The Night Of will be the latest product of this particular genre. The miniseries is based off a BAFTA-winning British series Criminal Justice. If HBO learned something from critics, then there chances for The Night Of to be particularly engaging are really high.

#7 Mr. Robot

Upcoming Shows

Channel: USA Network
Date: July 13

USA can hardly be considered a major player in the world of renowned TV productions, but this might just change if they keep up creating shows of the caliber of Mr. Robot. Starring Rami Malek as the protagonist, the series is a mix of hacking groups, conspiracies, and brilliant intrapersonal struggles experienced by the paranoid and mentally afflicted protagonist.

#8 Stranger Things

Upcoming Shows

Date: July 17

Stranger Things is going to premiere this summer as one of Netflix’s latest projects. Not many things are known about the series, given that there isn’t even a trailer to help us grasp an idea of the concept. However, it’s known that it will star Winona Ryder as a woman investigating a young boy’s disappearance in a plot that will seemingly be blended with supernatural elements.

#9 Vice-Principals

Upcoming Shows

Channel: HBO
Date: July 17

Yes, this is another high-school setting TV show. However, this time, it switches the camera over to the grown-ups – or even better, the ones in charge of the whole school. Vice-Principals is a comedy series that’s going to pin Danny McBride and Walton Goggins against each other in their quest to seize the seat of the vice-principal of the respective school.

#10 Marvel’s Luke Cage

Upcoming Shows

Channel: Netflix
Date: September 30

Last but not least, Netflix continues to expand its Marvel-based series universe which was kicked off by Jessica Jones and Daredevil with Luke Cage. Once a convict, Mike Colter’s character is now both blessed and cursed with superpowers of the likes of super tough skin and great strength. All things considered, he chooses to atone by dedicating his life to fighting crime. Let’s just hope he takes this whole business better than Jessica Jones.
