Just because the traditional 2014-2015 television schedule is wrapping up that doesn’t mean there isn’t something for everyone to watch going into the summer. Forget about some epic getaway – there’s TV to be watched! In fact, there are a ton of great sci-fi, horror, fantasy, and otherwise nerd-centric series returning and premiering this summer (no, seriously, I mean there is a crazy amount of awesome television coming out in the next few months).

To help you keep all the air dates and network schedules straight, we’ve devised this handy dandy calendar! If a show starts anywhere from May to late July you’ll find it here.

There are a bunch of other great shows coming out this summer, too. They just aren’t as nerd-tacular as the ones we’ve listed. That’s not to say we’re not fans, of course! Some of our non-genre favorites include Girl Meets World, The Fosters, Rookie Blue, and Graceland – just to name a few.

So, what shows are you looking forward to watching this summer?
