Long gone are the summers filled with reruns of favorite shows. Also, is the notion that summer replacement shows are "not good enough" for the fall. Some of today's most popular shows are those that premiere in the summer.
USA network announced its summer line up during its annual Upfront presentation which includes two new drama series: Mr. Robot and Complications. Mr. Robot, (a terrible name for hopefully a much better series), is described as a techno-thriller starring Christian Slater and Rami Malek. Malek plays a young programmer recruited by Slater to join an underground hacker group. Complications is created by Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and stars Jason O'Mara (Life on Mars) and Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl).
Rizzoli & Isles has been around for five seasons, and the 18-episode release of the latest season is headed your way. It hits June 9th, and has some interesting bonus features.
The show has had some ups and downs, with some episodes feeling decidedly clunky, but it hasn’t hurt the ratings, and the show has become the hit of TNT.
The release puts this one in your hand in time for the sixth season premiere, in case you need to do any catching up and/or revisiting.
Check out all the info below, and make sure to pick up your copy.

It’s been nearly a month since our last update on the CBS Supergirl series, which saw Mehcad Brooks join the cast as a new cooled-up screen version of photographer Jimmy Olsen. Now, we’ve learnt about another addition to the cast – Laura Benanti, who will play Alura Zor-El, the birth mother of Supergirl, aka Kara (played by Melissa Benoist of Glee and Whiplash).
In terms of character description specific to the show, what we know so far is that Alura is “a strong noblewoman, [who] sends Kara to Earth to escape Krypton’s destruction. Her wisdom and guidance echoes across space and time, proving invaluable on Kara’s journey toward becoming Supergirl.”
It sounds like she might be doing a Russell-Crowe-in-Man-Of-Steel, then, popping up throughout the narrative to help out her estranged offspring with words of wisdom. »
