Xfinity TV Hotlist for June Features New Series and the Return of Summer Favorites

Summer is just around the corner, and that means out with the old shows and in with the new. Get ready for fresh episodes of last year’s summer favorites like The Last Ship, America’s Got Talent and Power, as well as an exciting lineup of new series and returning favorites, like the second season of True Detective (pictured) worth checking out.

This summer, keep an eye out for the long list of movie stars who are gracing the TV screen – like Jack Black in the new series, The Brink, William Hurt in Humans and Halle Berry who’s back for season two of Extant. True Detective’s second season will feature an all-star cast including Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams (pictured).

Sci-fi is heating up as well, with new shows like Mr. Robot, Falling Skies and Under the Dome making their debuts.
