Summer TV gets in full swing this month, and the June 2018 TV premieres calendar is dotted with game shows and reality programs. But some decent docs and dramas also debut, including new seasons of GLOW800 Words, Claws and Shades of Blue as well as new series Pose, Condor and Yellowstone. And don’t forget the series finale of Sense8.

I’m a little late with this calendar (forgive me!), but I’m leaving it intact so you know what you may have missed and should catch up on. Take a look at the full June 2018 TV premieres calendar below.
