Summer is almost here, and it’s (hopefully) bringing sunshine, ice cream, and an extra special treat: new seasons of all your favourite programmes!

Here are six of the most exciting returns, plus one brand new show we reckon is worth a watch. 

House of Cards

(Netflix, out now on demand)

House of Cards

Get ready for some drama. Season five sees House of Cards return to form, with election day raising everyone's panic levels and shady behind-the-scenes manoeuvres coming to light. Not the best choice if you want to escape from politics this month, but it's engrossing telly all the same.

The whole season is out now on Netflix for your binging pleasure. Find it on whatever device you like, including web browsers, smartphones, games consoles, Virgin Media TiVo, and YouView boxes

Poldark

(BBC One, Sundays 9pm)

Poldark

It's time for a new series of rural period drama Poldark too - hooray! Aidan Turner's Ross is finally settling into his marriage with Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson), and there's a few new faces in the form of her two visiting brothers.

Will we get to see Topless Scything 2: The Sequel? There's only one way to find out. Tune into Poldark at 9pm on 11 June, BBC One.

Fear the Walking Dead

(AMC Global, Mondays 2am and on demand)

Fear the Walking Dead

The latest season of The Walking Dead's sister show, i.e. the one with the word 'fear' in the title, kicks off with a double bill. Our survivors arrive at the US border at last… but it turns out it's not that easy to get back in.

AMC Global (BT channel 332, Sky channel 192) is set to simulcast it with its airing in America, at 2 o'clock in the frickin' morning of 5 June. It's also on catch-up if you don't fancy being awake at that time.

Riviera

(Sky Atlantic, from 15 June 9pm)

Riviera

Julia Stiles stars in this brand new drama as art dealer / professional rich person Georgina Clios. When her billionaire husband is killed, her life is turned upside down and she travels to - you guessed it - the French Riviera to investigate in the seedy criminal underworld. Come for the shots of the beautiful blue Mediterranean, stay for the unravelling mystery.

Riviera's on Sky Atlantic from 15 June - available on either Sky channel 108 (222 for HD), or with a NOW TV Entertainment Pass.

Orange is the New Black

(Netflix, from 9 June)

Orange is the New Black

We last saw the inmates of Litchfield in, shall we say, turmoil - and the time has come to see how it all plays out. The first episode of the new season picks up precisely where the last one left off, and the whole series covers just three days of action - so boy is it going to be intense.

Season five lands all at once on 9 June on Netflix. Watch it quickly before your social media feeds spoil it for you.

Orphan Black

(Netflix, from 11 June)

Orphan Black

Speaking of shows on Netflix that start with O and end with the word Black, guess what else is back!

Our first look at season five shows kooky, quirky Helena (Tatiana Maslany) going on a fun li'l stabbing spree - classic Helena, am I right? - so it looks like we're set for a bit of drama. And of course we'll get to catch up with the likes of Sarah (Tatiana Maslany), Alison (Tatiana Maslany), and Cosima (Tatiana Maslany).

Find Orphan Black on Netflix too, from 11 June.

Game of Thrones

(NOW TV, available now on demand)

Game of Thrones

No, sorry, the new series isn't out just yet… but you can catch up on all the old episodes ready for its reappearance. Full box sets of the previous seasons are available with the NOW TV Entertainment Pass, and you've juuuust about got time to watch the whole lot. Hurry though, you haven't got long.
