It wasn't that long ago when summer meant reruns and spending more time at the movies because there was nothing on television that would keep us home.

A lot has changed since then, though, because now, television has officially embraced the summer TV season.

So, forget about hanging out at the beach and catching some rays, because there's nothing else to do. This summer brings some new shows to television, as well as the return of some old favorites.

Here's a guide to what shows will premiere and/or return this summer. Happy watching!
