Ah, summer TV. When we're not outside enjoying the fact that it's not winter, there's nothing better than relaxing in an air-conditioned room watching some TV. Over the past few years, the usually lame summer TV lineups have certainly picked up. It's time for new series to shine ("The Strain," "Extant") and for old favourites to entertain us once again ("Big Brother," "Orange Is The New Black").

Without further ado, HuffPost Canada TV has amassed a short list of the Top 10 shows we look forward to watching this summer. (If we missed something you're especially excited for, by all means let us know in the comments!)
