The summer TV season is officially underway, with many new and returning shows starting up a fresh set of stories on the horizon.
As broadcast television shows take their much-deserved summer breaks, their absence allows for cable and streaming services to bring back summer favorites, as well as introduce new shows to fascinate us as the hot months come and go.
From critically-acclaimed favorites to new summer guilty pleasures, take a look at 10 TV shows coming or returning to TV this June.
FX's groundbreaking series is officially back for round 2 of jaw dropping ball scenes, award worthy performances and lots of heart.
Season 2 moves the plot to the '90s, kickstarting with the release of Madonna's hit song "Vogue," bringing the main character's culture into the limelight.
"This season is absolutely an exploration of what happens when a subculture then reaches mainstream culture," co-creator Steven Canals told press ahead of the premiere. "It feels like it would have been false for us to not lean into [the appropriation that came along with Madonna's "Vogue"] as a theme, or to explore what it means for ballroom to suddenly become mainstream."
