Experiencing Lost Withdrawal? Bridge the gap with these summer season kickoffs
America was mesmerized since the first episode of Lost premiered almost six years ago. But how can the Lost-obsessed cope with the beloved series coming to an end? Relax, the summer season is kicking off! Get ready for the nation’s most anticipated Summer television premieres.
Here are some fan favorites to look out for:
The Bachelorette: Ali Fedotowsky, 25, begins her quest to find true love after deciding she made a huge mistake when she decided to go back to a job she loved instead of taking a leap of faith with former “Bachelor” leading man Jake Pavelka. This time, however, she’s ready to risk it all for romance, having given up her apartment, her job and most remnants of stability to participate as the latest Bachelorette.
So You Think You Can Dance: A two-hour audition episode opens the hit reality series’ leap into a seventh season, but several changes are in the offing, including a smaller group of starting contestants: 10, with one going home each week. Another fun new feature: Favorite dancers from past seasons return as All-Star Partners. Nigel Lythgoe, Adam Shankman, Mia Michaels and Mary Murphy anchor the judging panel, which will also feature guest judges. Cat Deeley returns as host.
Entourage: Season seven is expected to hit your TV this July. What’s the story? Led by Vince, an actor deemed the next big thing, four buddies migrate west from Queens, N.Y. Usually within his reach are his less successful half brother, Drama; Vince’s best friend, Eric; and their irrepressible pal, Turtle. As the foursome adjusts to Tinseltown’s fast pace and frantic deal-making, Vince’s take-charge agent, Ari, exerts his influence — often to Eric’s annoyance.
True Blood: It’s official, True Blood Season 3 premieres Sunday, June 13th. Rumor has it Eric will be naked, werewolves descend on Bon Temps, Lafayette will get some lovin’ and Godric returns…or not. Not caught up? Here is some background: Small-town Louisiana waitress Sookie Stackhouse is already viewed as an oddball by her friends and neighbors, since she can read the minds of those around her. She doesn’t exactly help her reputation when she falls for handsome newcomer Bill Compton, a 173-year-old vampire who has “come out of the coffin” along with many of his undead comrades now that a new synthetic blood has made it possible for vampires to survive without preying on humans.
