I'm Dying Up Here Series Premiere (Showtime)

Does the world really need another series about stand up comedians being… stand up comedians? Pete Holmes' Crashing made a good case for it earlier this year, but now it's Showtime's turn with the ambitious ensemble I'm Dying Up Here. Produced by Jim Carrey and starring the likes of Melissa Leo, Al Madrigal, Michael Angarano, Clark Duke and more, the '70s-set series follows the ups and downs of comics as they try to make it on stage and in their personal lives. The period details make it sound like it could be another Vinyl-like disaster but then again, it could be Showtime's next big hit.

Orphan Black Final Season (BBC America)

Summer 2017 is ushering plenty of series to the big content library in the sky, and one that looks to go out on a high note is BBC America's acclaimed Orphan Black. For four seasons the "sestras" have been fighting to find out the truth behind their creation and the conspiracy that's unfolded since they discovered one another. Now, Emmy winner Tatiana Maslany will bring her tremendous performance(s) to the series one last time as the clones band together to bring their twisty story to a close.

Preacher Season 2 Poster

Preacher Season 2 (AMC)

Season 1 of Preacher did what so many inaugural seasons of television do these days: It served more as a prologue or proof of concept than anything else. As such, season 2 is set to really get the story of Jesse Custer, Tulip O'Hare, and Cassidy up and running as the series shifts its setting from the dust-strewn streets of Annville, Texas to wonders of the open road. The new direction – which looks to be more in keeping with the comic book from Garth Ennis and the late Steve Dillon – should provide plenty of out-of-this world shenanigans for the main characters to get up to, and plenty of opportunity for the series to test the limits of basic cable television.
