Spring is coming to an end, and many of our favorite shows have wrapped for the season, taking a much-needed summer hiatus. But that doesn't mean our need for a good television fix is taking a break, too! While we have a slew of summer blockbuster movies we can't wait to watch, there are also many summer television shows we're so excited about. From dramas to dating shows, reality series, and comedies, there's a summer television show to satisfy any preference.

Between planning vacations and lugging the kids to and from camp, we have to admit that we are super excited to curl up on the couch with a few of our favorite television shows. This summer will bring highly anticipated episodes, as well as some final seasons of a few epic shows. We'll be saying goodbye to the ladies of Litchfield in Orange Is the New Black, and saying hello to the ladies of Monterey on Big Little Lies -- which means our emotions will be all over the place!

Good thing we have dating shows like Bachelor In Paradise and the premiere of Love Island to get in a little escapism, too!

We're so ready to get our binge on!

Here are all the television shows we are dying to watch this summer!
