It's a big week for drama -- not just "Game of Thrones."

FX Networks

Sure, Sunday tends to be overcrowded with high-end TV like "Penny Dreadful" and "Halt & Catch Fire" but what do the other nights have to offer? Every Monday, we bring you five noteworthy highlights from the other six days of your upcoming week.

"The Fosters" - Season 2 Premiere
Monday, June 16th on ABC Family at 9pm

Winner of the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Dramatic Series, "The Fosters" is a groundbreaking family drama that centers on a interracial lesbian couple and their children. The New Yorker's television critic, Emily Nussbaum, adores the show and included it on her list of 2013 shows that she enjoyed most. If you want to catch up on the series, ABC Family has every episode from Season 1 available to stream, except for the pilot.

"Louie" - Season 4 Finale
Monday, June 16th on FX, with 2 episodes back-to-back starting at 10pm

Louie's relationship with Pamela is at the center of the final two episodes of Season 4, which FX will be airing back-to-back. Television fans and critics alike are most likely wondering whether or not the show will address the fact that Louie forced himself on Pamela in the episode that aired on June 2nd.

"Fargo" - Season 1 Finale
Tuesday, June 17th on FX at 10pm

Lester Nygaard has developed into a rather ruthless person over the course of the first eight episodes. As we saw in last week's episode, nothing is beneath him -- not even putting his new wife in harm's way to save his own skin.

Clocking in at 90 minutes, don't expect to move from the couch during this season finale.

"Dominion" - Series Premiere
Thursday, June 19th on SyFy at 9pm

Angels and mankind are at war in "Dominion": The new Syfy original series is set 25 years after the events that transpired in the 2010 film "Legion." Syfy has struggled to produce a strong slate of original shows ever since "Battlestar Galactica" went off the air; although "Legion" didn't perform half-bad at the box office, the film was panned by critics -- so it remains be seen whether the television extension manages to succeed where the film ran amiss.

"Rectify" - Season 2 Premiere
Thursday, June 19th on Sundance Channel at 9pm

Created by actor and writer Ray McKinnon, "Rectify" follows Daniel Holden, a former death-row inmate who, as a teenager, was convicted of raping and murdering his then-girlfriend. At the beginning of Season 1, Holden has been released from prison as a result of DNA evidence that exonerated him from the crime. While the first season centers on Holden re-adjusting to life outside the prison walls, Season 2 will take a sharp turn in the opposite direction.
