Next Week in TV 6/4: The Summer Season starts with a Fantastic Week of TV

By Alyssa and DRWHO42

As we say goodbye to the traditional TV season we look toward the summer offerings which start off in grand style this week. It is a visual buffet with plenty to choose from including clones, zombies, spaceships and supernatural guns. Fear the Walking Dead and Talking Dead return to AMC Sunday to get us through the summer with drama and adventure during the zombie apocalypse. We are hearing reports of a surprise return this season so keep these eyes glued to the screen.

Fans of space-based Sci-Fi will enjoy the return of Dark Matter. Fan favorite Wynonna Earp returns for its second season Friday on Syfy. 

Orange is the New Black fans will rejoice with the 5th season series release on Netflix. We have been anxiously waiting to see what happens after the season 4 finale cliffhanger. 

Topping off the week is the return of Orphan Black for its fifth and final season with the Emmy Award winner Tatiana Maslany playing multiple ‘clones’ in exquisite fashion.

Gotham concludes its third season with a 2-hour finale Monday. This season was certainly a one to behold with great performances, betrayals, twists, and a few surprises. We look forward to see what’s in store for season 4. Lastly, HBO’s The Leftovers ends its run at HBO after three seasons.

The blog team and members of the FoCC forum are speculating which shows will have a presence at San Diego Comic Con – click here to join the conversation.

But first they’ll have to win over Goldie, who rules the Sunset Strip with an iron fist. Stand-up is a drug for these comedians, and they’re willing to sacrifice everything to get their fix. They brave the pain of sharing their innermost thoughts and darkest secrets, hoping that someone, anyone, will laugh. Executive produced by Jim Carrey. Click for more info and trailer
