TIPS FOR POSTING It is always extremely helpful when people post dates, times and information below. It is useful in keeping the list as current as possible and makes for a great community spirit. But when posting, please remember the following: 1) Use full programme titles. As instantly recognisable as abbreviations may be to someone who watches that show, to someone who doesn't, it is just a meangingless collection of letters that has to be looked up 2) If a bit of information is a rumour, please say so - we can list it as such, pending confirmation 3) If something comes from a reputable source, please quote that source, so we all know it is not just a rumour.
(TBC) = To be confirmed. If a show is listed as (TBC) this means it's either not an official date from the channel, or is subject to change.

Despite the earlier cancellation, this new season comes to Netflix in may

Idris Elba’s unhinged and unconventional detective began filming a third series in October.

This penultimate season 6 has a final 12 episode season 7, by which time Michael Westen and friends will have been “stuck” in Miami for 7 years… To be fair it is probably time he managed to leave!
Summer Season (June 2013 - Sept 2013)
Confirmed as bought by E4, but they’ve moved it to Summer for this final season
Living has confirmed it has the rights and will bring us more of the Winchesters in 2013. They’ve also confirmed it’s coming ‘Summer’. If Living are true to previous form, it’ll be July/August. It’s been getting later and later each year…
Guess, based on previous seasons

Very hard to say when Rules of Engagement is likely to return as the 13 episode season 7 is airing as a mid-season replacement (that’s early 2013 usually) in the US, rather than its normal Autumn (aka Fall) slot.
Usually returns in Spring, but seems to be getting later and later in the year. Series 7 is recorded, but not showing up on the broadcast listings yet.
New stand up improvised comedy show where the cream of the comedy circuit are presented with the ultimate challenge: come up with a brand new routine on the spot based on topics presented to them right there and then.
Season 3 started airing Oct 2012 in the US, but Sky held season 2 till July, so I think there’s a fair chance they’ll do the same with season 3.
Season 3 aired in Feb in the US, and is only 13 eps… and that could very well be your lot as its ratings in the US are not good, currently very much ’50/50′.
Airs in America on Feb 5th 2013, but Sky are saying July, so i’m guessing the deal with NBC only allows them to air it after the US run ends…

confirmed to be returning in the summer
American remake of the British series about a group of women and their various affairs.
We return to the Griffins in the summer.
The eighth season is probably the last of Dexter and Fox will be bringing us to Miami within days of the Americans
Season 1 aired a few weeks after the USA on Sky Atlantic, and given The Newsroom is one of the larger HBO shows, I suspect they’ll do the same with season 2. Airs in July 14th in the US, so it’ll should July/Aug over here.
One of the TV talent contests – return guess based on last year’s series.

This joint UK/French production is essentially a remake of Danish/Swedish Broen (The Bridge), where a body is discovered precisely on the border between the two countries, necessitating a joint investigation between the two countries, with all the cultural intricacies that brings.
In the case of Britain and France, there is no bridge of course, so this time it is called The Tunnel. Will air on Canal + en France and Sky Atlantic for UK satellite viewers
New American political thriller recently bought by Channel 4 in the UK. Season 2 guesswork for now.
Begins filming in the spring, with a view to broadcasting in the Autumn. According to Martin Clunes, this will probably be the final series.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers stars as Dracula posing as a US entrepreneur in Victorian London. Showrunner is Carnivàle’s Dan Knauf. NBCUniversal coproduction with Sky Living.

Usually airs Sept/Oct.
Runs June/July in the US, and usually Sept over here.
The FBI enlists the help of a specialist neuroscientist to help solve cases. Second season date guesswork for the moment- returns to American TV in summer
A third year of funny relationship woes.
True Blood used to air in Jan/Feb, but FX/Fox UK moved it up to Sept be closer to the US air date, so we had 2 seasons in 2012. That means it’s likely to be a wait till Sept again, unless Fox can push it even closer to the June 9th 2013 US air date this year. It’s a shorter 10 episode season this time due to Anna’s pregnancy.
Karl Pilkington sets out to discover the answers to some of the hard questions in life.
Seems to be running about 1 month behind the USA, so in theory SVU should be back in Feb…

The long-running Sicilian detective series returns to the BBC.
There’s no series 5, but there is a one-off 45 min special coming starring Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson, Chris O’Dowd and Matt Berry to wrap up the show. Due to be filmed in May, it should be on our screens in the Autumn.

Couple of Notes on Commenting…
If your asking about an air date show, please make sure it isn’t in the list already. Easiest way to do this is to use your browser’s ‘Find’ function (‘Ctrl & F’ on a PC, ‘cmd and F’ on a Mac).
Also, if you’re asking for a returning air date, it really helps me out if you know which channel it’s airing on currently to post that in the comment.
I know a lot of the TV shows, but the more info you can leave me, the easier it is for me to check.
