The TV shows keep happening! Even as production restarts are still theoretical for a number of series, networks are still finding ways to bring new programming to new eyes.
Even more so than past months, the new shows aren’t necessarily “new” in the strictest sense of the word. A number of series airing on American broadcast outlets in the coming weeks have already made their debuts elsewhere, gathering audiences across Australia and the U.K. But the deep content benches from streaming services also translate to some additional unscripted programming getting a late-summer drop that can officially be dubbed a “premiere.”
And among the prestige offerings and steady stream of imports, August is also set to bring one of the first high-profile programming of the quarantine era. After months of trying to parse out what American TV’s immediate future will look like, this batch might be the most indicative yet.
To help plan out the next few weeks of viewing, we’ve included synopses and basic viewing info for over a dozen of these new shows below. (And, as always, in case you’ve missed any of our past monthly roundups, you can find past editions for February, March, April, May, June, and July.)
