Summer is a season for being outside, but you can’t be in the sun all of the time. Imagine instead staying inside on a blistering June afternoon, lazing on a couch with air conditioning blasting at a responsibly comfortable temperature and a cold drink condensing within an easy reach. The TV is on, but instead of accepting the stagnancy of too-hot days and watching The Office again, you shake it up by trying something new. Sounds great, right? As far as fantasies go, it’s pretty achievable. This summer, anticipated new seasons of shows like Netflix’s Stranger Things 4 and Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building are finally arriving, along with exciting adaptations of The Time Traveler’s Wife, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, and Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon. That’s not to say anything of Disney+ double-blessing us with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ms. Marvel. There’s something for everyone this season, so don’t feel like you have to be in a pool to get your summer’s worth of fun. Inside is just fine, too, and inside has dragons. 1. Hacks Season 2, HBO Max, May 12

Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder return for Hacks, HBO Max’s surprise hit about an old megastar comedian and the alleged no-name writer she hires to punch up her act. Ava (Einbinder) is on edge since sending a damning email about Deborah (Smart) to TV producers who plan to turn it into a series. They maintain their working relationship while Ava panics and Jimmy (Paul W. Downs) tries to do damage control back in Hollywood. Prepare for major hiccups in Ava and Jimmy’s plans, more of that irresistible Deborah Vance bite, and plenty of jokes — no matter who’s the butt of them. — Proma Khosla, Senior
