Yes, the summer is here! The sun-and-the-sand type will definitely head towards the beach while for the rest televisions remain as their perfect partners. We pick you five most-awaited returning and new television shows for this summer.
Dance musical Pose with the largest ever cast of transgender actors premiered on June 3 at 9 pm on FX. Set in the 1980s, the show showcases different struggles of life in the city of New York—right from the luxury Trump-era universe, to the downtown social and literary scene to the underworld ball culture. Produced by Murphy, Sherry Marsh, Nina Jacobson, and Brad Simpson, the cast is lead by Kate Mara, Evan Peters and James Van Der Beek.
Next on the line is dark-comedy Dietland—a straight-to-series 10-episode drama that premiered on AMC on June 4, 2018. Based on the book by Sarai Walker, the series narrates the journey of a plus-size writer Joy Nash (Plum) who takes care of the letters to the editor session of a lifeless beauty magazine.
Loosely based on the childhood of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Kyle Richards, the sitcom narrates the struggle of an unconventional mother who raises her two daughters after separating from her cheating husband. Alicia Silverstone, Mena Suvari, and Cheyenne Jackson lead the cast with the 12-episode series all set to debut on the Paramount Network on June 7.
MARVEL'S CLOAK & DAGGER
Indeed a teen treat! Disney's love for superheroes is taking a new turn with 'Marvel's Cloak & Dagger' premiering on June 7 on Freeform. A spin on the original comic book characters, the series is set in the fantastical Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Oscar-winner Kevin Costner teams up with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan ('Hell or High Water') for this family drama. Costner stars as John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch, and his daily battle with the land developers, American Indians, family members and other forms the base of the plot.
