Summer is here, the temperature rises, clothes get shorter, as well as the desire to work and do anything else is not to relax by the sea. If, however, you are stuck in the city, do not panic because there are always TV series to watch.

The days of July and August are divided between returns and new releases.
Among the first category fall the eighth season of Suits, which, with the help of Katherine Heigl’s new entry, will have to find a new balance after the abandonment of Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle (now in the role of English royalty). The second season of The Sinner, this time without Jessica Biel, but always with Bill Pullman aka detective Ambrose. Orange Is the New Black 6 with the consequences of the revolt at Litchfield. The fourth season of the Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul.

If, however, you want something new, we recommend the 5 most interesting unreleased series to watch this summer.

Put together the author of Gone Girl, the director of Big Little Lies, the 5-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams and you'll have all the ingredients for what could be the best show debuting this summer.

This eight-episode miniseries follows the story of Camille Preaker, a reporter forced to return to her hometown in Missouri to investigate the strange and brutal murder of two girls. While carrying out her work, the woman, recently discharged from a psychiatric hospital, where she was hospitalized because of her tendency to self-harm (the title of the series refers to her passion for the protagonist for sharp objects), will be forced to deal with the mother (Patricia Clarkson) and with her personal demons.

The series trailer paints the image of a gothic crime drama set in the south of America, evoking the atmosphere of the 2014 True Detective cult.

With these excellent conditions, the debut on HBO is scheduled for July 8, while in Italy the show should soon arrive on Sky Atlantic.

 

Castle Rock, Hulu, July 25th

This is the perfect series for horror lovers.

The project produced by J.J. Abrams (the man behind the iconic Lost, but also behind Person of Interest and Westworld), weaves characters and themes of mythology created by Stephen King.

Unlike the other adaptations taken from the writer's works, Hulu's novelty is inspired by several novels at the same time giving life to a sort of "shared universe". At the center of it all is Castle Rock, the fictional city in Maine featured in numerous King's stories, from Cujo to The Dead Zone.

Showrunners Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason recount their vision:

“an avenue to explore this town of horror and interpret the Stephen King aesthetic on TV in a way we hope harkens back to De Palma, Cronenberg, Kubrick and that heyday of great filmmakers doing psychological horror fare that's based on King's books".

Castle Rock is an anthology series on the model of American Horror Story and will tell a new story every season. The first 10 episodes will revolve around lawyer Henry Deaver (Andre Holland) who returns to his hometown to represent a prisoner (played by Bill Skarsgård) imprisoned in Shawshank State Penitentiary. All this while dark and disturbing presences start to appear.

Disenchantment (HERE the trailer) by Matt Groening for Netflix is perhaps the most awaited series of the season.

The “dad” of The Simpsons and Futurama takes us to the medieval kingdom of Dreamland, along with Bean (dubbed by Abbie Jacobson of Broad City), alcoholic princess, to Luci, her "personal demon" and her friend Elf.

During his adventures, the bizarre trio will encounter a series of magical creatures of all kinds like orcs, spirits, harpies and trolls, but also many human beings who do not shine through cunning or intelligence.

The first 10 episodes of the cartoon will debut on August 17 on Netflix, but the expectations on the series are so high that, even before the airing, has been renewed for a second season, consisting of the same number of episodes.

Back on the screen, Jack Ryan, the hero created by Tom Clancy, already protagonist of 17 novels and 5 films. The series follows the adrenaline adventures of the CIA analyst who, for the first time, faces a dangerous assignment in the field: to dismantle a dangerous ISIS cell.

Catapulted between Europe and the East, man tries to avoid a series of disastrous terrorist attacks.

"It’s sort of a prequel to the versions of him that you meet in the movies and books" said Carlton Cuse, showrunner of the first eight episodes (an hour-long each) along with Graham Roland who added "One of the things that separates Jack Ryan from James Bond or Jason Bourne is that he’s infinitely more relatable. There’s a level of everyman in the character".

This time the role of the hero invented by Clancy is entrusted to John Krasinski (known for A Quiet Place, a film he directed and played, together with his wife Emily Blunt).

Even before the debut, Amazon announced the renewal of the series for a second season.
