The Most Anticipated TV Shows of 2024: New and Returning Series

What a relief to close the door to 2023, a Annus horribilis for the entertainment industry (and the world).

After the two strikes effectively shut down most production from May to November, the doors reopened to a landscape that was changed forever. The realities of the streaming bubble and the divisions between traditional media and Silicon Valley companies have been highlighted during the strikes, and whether some of the traditional studios will survive intact next year is a very real. (As we finished writing this introduction, as if to emphasize this point, news of a possible merger between Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount Global broke.)

Concretely, for this 2024 TV preview, consumers should start seeing fewer shows from next year: but it remains an open question whether people will notice that there is still so much content – especially when the start of the year is busy like never before. Before.

Indeed, one of the tangible results of the strikes is that shows that should have premiered in fall 2023 — like HBO’s “True Detective: Night Country” and “Feud: Capote vs. FX’s The Swans — have been pushed back to the new year, and the result is an insane January pileup, as you’ll see below (and we’re not including everything, obviously).

Another consequence of the strikes is that the network’s television programs, most of which went into production as soon as the actors’ strike ended, will also air in the first quarter of the year, with shows like “Abbott Elementary” from ABC and NBC. “One Chicago” programming will premiere in slots normally allocated to midseason replacements. What effect this change will have on tried-and-true network shows is anyone’s guess.

Although we’ve included 34 shows in this preview, the new methodology in the streaming age (even for non-streamers) is to continue playing hide and seek with premiere dates in order to preserve maximum flexibility. The last date announced therefore concerns the third season of Netflix’s “Bridgerton” (May 16 and June 13). Beyond that, aside from the July Olympics, there’s only “summer” for Season 2 of HBO’s “House of the Dragon” and “fall” for “Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.” » from Disney+ (the “WandaVision” spin-off revolving around Kathryn Hahn’s escape). wicked).

The media outlet with the most high-profile projects without dates is, naturally, Netflix, since the dominant streamer still has the most shows, period. Viewers can anticipate the final seasons of “Cobra Kai” and “Umbrella Academy,” as well as Andrew Scott in “Ripley” (likely in the spring Emmy window). Eventually, among many other new and returning shows, Netflix audiences will also see “Dead Boy Detectives”, Hayley Atwell in the lead role in “Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft” and the long-awaited adaptation from David E .Kelley from the Tom Wolfe film. novel “A Man in Full,” with Jeff Daniels and Diane Lane.

HBO and Max also have a number of highly anticipated undated shows, starting with the Robert Downey Jr. satire “The Sympathizer” (probably this spring, for Emmy purposes), which will follow later in the year by the huge Batman IP games. -a spinoff of “The Penguin” (starring Colin Farrell!) and “Dune: Prophecy,” a prequel series to the hit film franchise – both about Max. Season 2 of “Tokyo Vice” and third seasons of “Hacks” and “The Sex Lives of College Girls” will return for new seasons on Max.

We have a number of Apple TV+ shows on this list, but still to list are “Dark Matter,” Blake Crouch’s adaptation of his own novel, directed by Joel Edgerton, and “Lady in the Lake,” the limited series starring Natalie Portman. series (based on the 2019 mystery by Laura Lippman) – among many others. And then there’s the small matter of the Emmy-nominated “Severance” returning for Season 2, which, despite reports to the contrary, we’ve heard is shaping up to be excellent.

Netflix, Apple TV+ and HBO/Max aren’t the only ones not announcing dates for shows we can’t wait to see: someday. The date for Hulu’s adaptation of Georgia Hunter’s bestselling novel “We Were the Lucky Ones” — starring Joey King and Logan Lerman — about a Jewish family during World War II, is TBD. That’s also the case for Hulu’s “Interior Chinatown,” Charles Yu’s adaptation of his own 2020 novel that used a storyline structure to serve as a commentary on race and representation in popular culture. In addition to “Agatha,” Hulu’s sister company Disney+ will also feature Leslye Headland’s take on “Star Wars” in “The Acolyte” and, along with the animated film “X-Men ’97,” Marvel Studios will be dipping its toes into this franchise for the first time.

These are just some of the undated shows from the dominant players. We’re also excited to finally see “Orphan Black: Echoes” on AMC, which will also feature season 2 of “Interview With the Vampire.” Speaking of the second season, “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” is also set to return next year – and we hope it doesn’t clash with “House of the Dragon” again this time, though- just for fun. . There’s also Showtime’s “Gentleman in Moscow” with Ewan McGregor. And speaking of star power, Julianne Moore and Nicholas Galitzine play mother and son in Starz’s acquisition of “Mary & George,” which we rate as having the most bullshit trailer for a landmark series since years. (Watch it here!)

Let’s now turn our attention to these shows that have done us the courtesy of announcing their dates! They’re listed in chronological order – and we wish you all a Happy New Year, with a great lookout for your future.
