It’s Independence Day eve and all of the things that means includes some red, white and blue, a good burner and maybe some fireworks. As we head into the actual holiday, we’re taking a look at the rare few fourth of July TV episodes you can watch. If you’re looking for a bit of brevity and fun, some of these might be sweet ½ hour or hour watches to make the perfect end to your day, whether it’s July fourth or not.
Since most shows go on hiatus over the summer season, there aren’t many that feature episodes celebrating the day, and honestly, even if they weren’t on break, I don’t know how many would have the courage or tact to write an episode honoring the red, white and blue. Let’s find some of these fourth of July TV episodes.

Season One, Episode 1INDEPENDENCE DAY: A FEW OF THE TV EPISODES THAT CELEBRATE THE FOURTH OF JULY! #FOURTHOFJULY #TVEPISODES #TVSHOWS #HALLMARK #CHESAPEAKESHORES #SAVEDBYTHEBELL #90STV #90STVSHOWS #JESSEMETCALFE #GILMOREGIRLS Click To Tweet
I saw this episode years ago, back when the show made its debut. Rumor has it the episode ends with fireworks, and it’s back when I was happier with the relationships on this Hallmark family drama. Beyond that, anything from this show just feels like a good summer vibe as it follows a family who go through ups and downs, heartbreak and joy. Shop season one digitally on Amazon Video
Season Three, Episode 3
I haven’t seen this episode… at least I don’t think so. I watched some of Fuller House, but I didn’t ever watch the original show, at least outside of episodes here and there, so I don’t have that emotional fangirl connection. But the photos for this make it look sweet and fun and a good time, so we’ll roll with it. Find the seasons on Netflix
Season Six, Episode 5; A Year in the Life, Episode 3
This isn’t a Fourth of July episode per se, but it does follow Rory’s DAR celebrations and the characters in costume which is kind of fun. However, the ‘Year in the Life’ revival does boast a ‘Summer’ episode (the third) where its promo is all about sparklers and red, white and blue. Shop season six digitally on Amazon Video; find “A Year in the Life” on Netflix
Season One, Episode 6
One of the soap opera-y shows, this dramedy follows a woman who reinvents herself in order to enact revenge on those she believes ruined her family. It’s an interesting premise and the first season my mother and I binged (as in, we stayed up LATE to watch “just one more”), but I never did finish the show. It’s so twisty and drama fueled, I just couldn’t do it. But let me know, is it worth finishing? In the meantime, we can appreciate this red, white and blue party – even with the drama. Shop season one digitally on Amazon Video
SAVED BY THE BELL
Cannot find reliable information on what episode this is, but Amazon has it as season five, episode 3
I haven’t watched this show, ever, but I did half heartedly watched this Fourth of July episode, and honestly, why does no one make wholesome entertainment like this? I just don’t find it anywhere. The episode follows the regular faces as they enter a beauty pageant and participate in a series of fun summer games. Shop season five digitally on Amazon Video; or find the third season (which is where this episode is listed) currently, on Hulu
THE WONDER YEARS
Season six, episode 22
Never watched this either, but it was the start of Danica McKeller’s career, and I’ve learned is also the series finale for The Wonder Years. I didn’t watch the episode, but the promo makes it look full of red, white and blue, too. Currently unavailable
