While we spent plenty of time with some old favorites this summer (because a Friends re-watch will never go out of style), there were certainly a bunch of brand new shows that we were eager to sit down and check out. At one point Summer TV wasn’t considered as “good” or as “great,” but the times have certainly changed. Shows that come out during the summer are just as good, if not sometimes better than the upcoming slate of new Fall TV shows.
And summer shows are full of 100% more drama. That’s a fact.
As we prepare to say goodbye to the warm weather, that also means we’ve got to say goodbye to some of the new series we watched along the way. But don’t worry, it’s not like they’re going anywhere as you can watch them again and again well into the cold winter months. Take a look at the most tracked new series from TV Time users below, and see if your favorites made the cut!
