The Showtime series returns August 16 and even though the show arguably jumped the shark way back in Agrestic, chances are you'll want to catch up with Uncle Andy's shenanigans.

Everyone’s favorite Mexican politician/drug lord-marrying, iced coffee-sipping anti-heroine is back for a new season. In case you forgot the last events of the Botwin universe (forgivable given the very uneven fifth season), post-pubescent Shane offed Nancy’s rival with a croquet mallet. As the trailer shows, the Botwins now have to fly under the radar and occasionally don wigs as they see fit to elude the wrath of Esteban. What else can we look forward to this season? Besides the unfortunate absence of Celia Hodes (Elizabeth Perkins), it looks like the Botwin clan is up to there usual tricks – iced coffees and all.
