The broadcast networks are rounding up their 2023-2024 TV season schedules this week, capping off another great season. We witnessed some pretty exciting developments and said bittersweet farewells to multiple shows, wishing they would continue their stories.

Now that June is here and summer's on the horizon, you'd think we would have to wait until fall for new shows and seasons. Fortunately, that's not the case, as there will be an abode of options to choose from, including new premieres and returning favorites. Even better, the possibilities aren't limited to network and cable shows; they include streaming and expanding binging opportunities.

May brought some wonderful streaming options, including the Australian dramedy In Limbo on Hulu, Bridgerton season 3 part 1 on Netflix, and The Simpsons short, "May The 12th Be With You" on Disney+.

The streamers are set to drop new premieres in June, and networks will unveil their summer lineups, which will lead to new show explorations and landings. After you settle on finding something new, you can do a rewatch.

We understand that deciding on a new show can be overwhelming and even exhausting, so we've compiled some suggestions for guidance for your show inspirations and must-watch lists for June.

June network and streaming list
The Bear -- Season 2 -- Season two of FX’s “The Bear,” the critically acclaimed original series, follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), Sydney Adamu (Ayo Edebiri) and Richard “Richie” Jerimovich (Ebon Moss- Bachrach) as they work to transform their grimy sandwich joint into a next-level spot. As they strip the restaurant down to its bones, the crew undertakes transformational journeys of their own, each forced to confront the past and reckon with who they want to be in the future. /

17 streaming and TV shows to watch in June

The Bear season 3

Jeremy Allen White returns to his role of Carman "Carmy" Berzatto in the upcoming third season of The Bear, which will air exclusively on Hulu in late June. In the season 2 finale, Carmy exploded regarding his feelings about Claire, realizing that he must come to terms with how he treats people personally and professionally. It's a lot on his plate, but the man's brilliant, and if he wants to save his new business and have solid relationships with his staff and others, then Carmy must find mutual grounds.

Of course, it's not easy to place yourself on a high pedestal and try to be the best at your job. In the season 3 trailer, Carmy focuses all his energy on running the restaurant and stresses his staff with his new "nonnegotiables." It's going to be challenging from the looks of it, and how everyone works together will make it or break it.

Then, there's the Claire drama, which will hopefully come to an absolution.

House of the Dragon season 2

The Game of Thrones prequel roars back with season 2 and will be filled with battles, blood, and even more deaths. New characters will join the old-age Targaryen Civil War, aiding the cause from disputing sides. A significant loss in the season 1 finale left Rhaenyra Targaryen (Eve Best) heartbroken while the rest of her family fights on the battlefields and skies.

The show is known for its phenomenal acting, storylines, gorgeous scenery, and wardrobe pieces. It truly pulls the audience into the adventure, making them feel right on the battlefield and riding the mystical dragons, which I wouldn't mind doing.

Star Wars: The Acolyte

Fans of the Star Wars franchise will enjoy The Acolyte, a brand-new series from Lucasfilm. A seasoned, but respected Jedi master, Sol (Lee Jung-jae) comes face-to-face with one of his former students, Mae (Amandla Stenberg), now a member of the Dark Force. Together, they uncover uncharted territory and unroot evil realms that hold more truth than Sol and Mae realized.

As a Star Wars fanatic, I think the premise looks great, as it contains all of the intergalactic elements the franchise is famous for. What's more exciting is that there's a pursuing conflict much larger than the characters, and in true Star Wars fashion, they battle it out.

Release date: June 4, then weekly

Shoresy season 3

For those who are fans of sports comedies and the ever-ensuing pressures of what goes on the field, or in Shoresy's (Jared Keeso) case, the ice rink and off the the rink, then you must check out this Canadian production. Shoresy features brutal sportsmanship, personal conflicts, and fierce women fighting for their team's success.

In the series, a hockey player named Shoresy is pressured to lead his team, the Sudbury Bulldogs, after constantly losing game after game. The team's manager, Nat (Tasya Teles), isn't pleased with the Bulldogs and has the right to replace Shoresy for his impudent behavior. After seeing the Bulldogs improve under Shoresy's leadership, she gives the team another chance.

What's appealing about Shoresy is that it has a strong woman lead taking hold in a position that's often dominated by men. It proves once again that women are far beyond capable of their expected stereotypes in society while keeping values intact.

Until the season 3 premiere, you can catch up on seasons 1 and two.

Bridgerton season 3 part 2

Go back to a time when love bloomed during the glamour and prestige of the Regency Era in the period drama Bridgerton. In the second half of season 3, Penelope Featerton (Nicola Coughton) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) continue their romance despite having a few angsty moments and stares between them. It all begins when Penelope asks Colin to find a suitable husband, only to realize he may be the One for her.

The third season of the Shonda Rhimes drama is based on the fourth book of the best-selling book series Bridgerton, Romancing Mr. Bridgerton. In Rhimes's version, however, she kicks up the romance by stating on May 23's episode of The Jennifer Hudson Show that the explicit sex scenes came from her imagination, saying that they're her "wish fulfillment a little bit."

The first half dropped on May 16, and ended with Colin's marriage proposal to Penelope, who has yet to say "yes."

Queer Planet on Peacock /

Queer Planet

Love isn't just human-exclusive, for the animal kingdom deeply expresses it, too. In Queer Planet, a documentary that'll drop on Peacock, viewers will get a deeper look at animal sexuality in terms of orientation and gender. While there have been studies on animal pride, we'll witness it in an understanding light.

June is LGBTQ Pride Month, so there's no better way to celebrate than to learn more about it and how we can be more thoughtful and aware of it. As a member of the community, it's vital to have discussions and respect towards others.

Peacock released the official synopsis for Queer Planet, which will be narrated by actor on stage and screen Andrew Rannells.

"When it comes to ‘what Mother Nature intended,’ it turns out she was pretty open-minded. In this vivid, funny, and eye-opening one-off doc, we take the audience on a journey to explore the rich diversity of animal sexuality."

Celebrating Donald Duck’s 90th Anniversary

Nearly a century ago, Walt Disney created everyone's favorite feathered rival and friend, Donald Duck. Now, Disney+ will celebrate his remarkable achievements with a 90th-anniversary special. It'll include three shorts, including the 1950 classic Crazy Over Daisy, and some history surrounding Donald. Naturally, Disney has launched new merch honoring their infamous duck and gave him the #1 spot at Disney Parks, something that Donald always wanted but never got because he was always in Mickey's shadow.

The Price Is Right At Night

Come on down for a night of The Price Is Right At Night, where the contestants win prizes by playing monetary and price-themed games. What's more, Drew Carey offers his effervescent personality, which gives the popular game show its fun oomph. The latest The Price Is Right At Night featured the kids superfans and kid-approved prizes such as a family trip to the Nickelodeon Parks and Resorts in Punta Cuna and a science room with the latest iMac model.

What draws me into the show is that I love to price compare since I live outside of California and see what prizes are being won, excluding the cars and international trips. At this point, I'm surprised that The Price Is Right hasn't filed for bankruptcy, as the total amount is in the billions since its 1972 premiere.

Network: CBS and Paramount+ the next day.

Release Date: June 5

Aside from these considerations, there are unlimited choices in the streamers' catalogs for your viewing pleasure, with the addition of network summer drops.
