Last week saw the end of our favorite competition shows and TV dramas—Scandal fans, breath! Even though many of us are sad to see them go away for three or more months, there’s a whole new crop of shows heading our way shortly.

Die-hard True Blood fans will be happy to know that the grim and gritty drama returns to the small screen on June 16. Those seeking a sexier hour of television can catch LisaRaye McCoy, Denise Vasi and more in a weekly dose of Single Ladies this summer. To add more steam to the screen, VH1 announced that Letoya Luckett and Damien Wayans will be added to the cast.

But that’s not all, Tyler Perry fanatics should tune in to OWN on May 28 for the premiere of the scandalous and salacious drama The Haves and the Have Nots starring Tika Sumpter. The next night, Perry will debut his situational comedy Love Thy Neighbor, which aims to deliver hearty summer laughs.

With so many good shows on the radar this season, which are you planning your summer fun around? If you don’t see your personal choice below, share it in the comments!
