Are horror stories your thing? Dead of Summer takes place at a summer camp in the 80s where a fun summer is soon filled with unpredictable evil happenings straight from ancient mythology.
5. The Night Of – July 10, HBO
A good crime story is always a nail-biter! This drama follows a murder case after a man wakes up from a night of hard partying and is charged with the murder of the woman whom he had spent the night with.
6. Vice Principals – July 17, HBO
Head back to high school in this amusing new comedy where two vice principals attempt to run a school and compete for the coveted role as principal. Imagine East Bound and Down with slightly different characters!
7. Sharknado: The 4th Awakens – July 31, Syfy
OK, fine you caught us, this is a TV movie, not a TV series, but it’s totally worth catching! The original Sharknado is a cult classic, known for being so bad it’s good. With intentionally ridiculous visual effects and outlandish scenes like shark infested cyclones, it’s hard to look away even though you might want to!
