Looks like 2015 will be the Summer of Manson, at least for NBC.

The network unveiled on Friday its premiere dates for summer, including "Aquarius," a crime drama starring David Duchovny and inspired by the notorious Charles Manson murder cult that terrorized Southern California during the late 1960s.

"Aquarius," which stars Duchovny as a cop hot on the trail of the Manson cult, will start with a two-hour premiere on May 28.

"America's Got Talent" will again serve as the anchor for the summer schedule, bowing May 26.

The obstacle-course contest "American Ninja Warrior" will kick off the summer lineup on May 25, while the acclaimed serial-killer drama "Hannibal" returns starting June 4.
