The complete guide to summer TV: everything you need to know about what to watch this season

This summer’s hottest look is armor. Two of the biggest fantasy shows on TV: HBO’s House of the Dragon and Prime Videos The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power – will return to our screens this season, competing in gear that doesn’t look too breathable. At least the heroes and villains on Prime Videos The boys perhaps more comfortably dressed. Also this summer FX’s The bear cooks a new season, and Bridgerton returns for more Regency romance. Plus, expect some major drama from Paris. Emily in Paris is back (as are her questionable fashion choices) and picks up right after the biggest TV event of the season: the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
