Returning TV Series to Look Forward to | 2018 Premiere Dates and Rumors

I'm starting to realize why I've been so out of sorts lately; most of my favorite shows are off the air right now! I've turned to ER reruns and the Food Channel. It's a desperate situation.

So in anticipation of some of my fave series coming back for new seasons here is a round-up of some premiere dates to look forward to this spring and summer.

Love Season 3 (Netflix) - March 9
The third - and final - season of the series created by Paul Rust, Lesley Arfin and Judd Apatow picks up where season two left off: Mickey and Gus give a committed relationship a shot. If you haven't caught Love yet, this is a great time to check it out.

Westworld Season 2 (HBO) - April 22
After a year and a half wait, we finally get to see what our favorite robots get up to next, like taking over the Delos park! Word on the street is that all the first season favorites are returning for Season 2: Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), Teddy (James Marsden), Bernard (Jeffrey Wright), Elsie (Shannon Woodward), Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth), Maeve (Thandie Newton), Lee (Simon Quarterman), and The Man in Black, aka William (Ed Harris).

The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 (Hulu) - April 25
As much as this show scares the SHIT out of me, I've been desperately pining for its return since season one finished last summer.  The teasers Hulu released haven't told us much about the plot of season two, but it looks pretty clear that Offred is officially TURNT. Under his eye, y'all.

The Affair Season 4 (Showtime) - June 17
Where do we go from here? Last season saw the formerly intertwined Noah (Dominic West), Helen (Maura Tierney), Alison (Ruth Wilson) and Cole (Jackson) go their separate ways. But are they all really ready to move on? I'm guessing the answer is no.

Casual Season 4 (Hulu) - July 31
Last we left siblings Val and Alex, Val's daughter had moved in with her grandmother in Sacramento and Alex had put a bun in Rae's oven. What will happen next?? Hulu has ordered an abbreviated eight-episode fourth season of Casual, which will be its last.
