THE SLANTED ( Sarah Fox) –
Earlier this year we reported on Freeform’s immense new lineup of shows and returning series, now a few of those shows are finally ready to premiere.
Obviously a few fan-favorites are coming back to their regularly scheduled summer nights. Freeform hits like “Pretty Little Liars,” “Young & Hungry,” “Baby Daddy,” “Monica the Medium” and “The Fosters” will be available this summer, so June is already looking pretty fantastic.
Those are just the returning series, but fans will also have a ton of new content to binge on as well. On the schedule in June are the summer premieres of “Guilt,” and new episodes of “Dead of Summer”. There will also be a few scattered films to enjoy, they include “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” “Celeste and Jesse Forever” and “The Final Girls”
Starting on June 1st fans can watch the summer premiere of “Young & Hungry,” the new episode will be called “Young & Hawaii” if you need to search your local listings. In the episode Gabi meets a fellow broken heart (guest star Tyler Ritter) and agrees to pose as his new wife at a couples only resort, hoping to make Josh jealous in the process. Meanwhile, Yolanda, Elliot and Alan have to think fast when they end up at the same resort and the manager assumes they’re a “thrupple” – a three-person couple.
That same day on “Baby Daddy“, Danny is desperate to make up with Riley after their recent breakup, but she is still furious after learning he hooked up with Sam (guest star Daniella Monet) in high school. Determined to prove that she is not overreacting, Riley puts Danny on “trial” for breaking her heart, with Bonnie acting as Danny’s lawyer.
On Saturday, June 4th fans of the Jurassic Park franchise can watch the 1997 hit “The Lost World: Jurassic Park.” There won’t be any Chris Pratt in this one, but you do get an extra serving of Jeff Goldblum so no harm done.
Then on June 6th fans can watch the new episode of “Monica the Medium” called Family Matters. Monica’s dad and sisters come for a visit and are excited to explore San Diego. Since her father has yet to witness a reading firsthand, Monica hopes her event with renowned medium James Van Praagh will provide the perfect opportunity for her to finally impress him.
The next big network premiere will be on June 11th, with the 2012 hit “Celeste and Jesse Forever.”
After that go ahead and enjoy your weekend and prep yourself for the series premiere of “Guilt” on Monday, June 13th. This new drama will thrive on secrets, so a lot of the storyline is being closely guarded by the network (that’s why their logo is so big, it’s full of secrets). The official description reads, “When a young woman is brutally murdered in her London flat, the search for her killer leads to scandal and intrigue stretching all the way from underground sex clubs to the highest levels of the Royal Family.”
The next network television premiere to watch out for will be the 2015 film “The Final Girls,” which will air at 10pm. On Monday, June 27th you can catch “The Fosters” and “Dead of Summer.” In DoS, the series is set in the late 1980′s, school is out for the summer and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Clearwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses and first kills.
Now in between these premieres you will still have all of your new episodes each week. With a returning schedule of over half a dozen popular series, you probably will have to stream most of them when you find the time. Luckily the Freeform app can handle all of your needs, so don’t forget that it is an option now. Of course if you need to catch-up on older episodes of PLL or Young & Hungry, you can hit up Netflix.
