The last 25 years have truly been a golden age for television.
The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Wire, Mad Men and Game of Thrones each elevated the medium. At first, television matched film. Then, according to a healthy number of viewers, it finally eclipsed it. But according to Variety Intelligence Platform’s media analyst Tyler Aquilina, 2023 might see the beginning of the end for this era.
“Considering the economic pressure that the entertainment industry is facing right now, there's definitely going to be some changes in terms of how much these companies spend and what they spend their money on,” explains Aquilina. “So we may see a decline in the number of original scripted series and a shift towards less expensive content.”
This means that, in the ensuing years, and possibly even months, streamers are going to focus more on reality shows and live sports, which draw huge numbers of viewers but are much cheaper to make than fantasy blockbusters like Stranger Things, House of the Dragon and Lord of the Rings.
While the television landscape looks set to change in the future, that doesn’t appear to have impacted the quality of television shows coming up in 2023. In fact, there’s still plenty to get excited about in the next 12 months of programming.

HBO isn't wasting any time in getting the brand new year of television off to a rollicking start.
Created and written by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl), The Last Of Us (premiering January 15) is the adaptation of the hugely popular post-apocalyptic video game, and will see Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey traveling across a quarantined America that’s infested with zombies.
Pascal will have an incredibly busy start to 2023, as he’ll also appear in the third season of The Mandalorian on Disney+ (March 1). This is sandwiched by the fourth season of Netflix’s You, which has been split into two parts, with the first batch of five episodes hitting screens on February 9, followed by the second on March 9.
Before then, though, fans of Knives Out and Glass Onion will be delighted to hear that Rian Johnson is so addicted to the crime mystery genre that he’s created the television series Poker Face for Peacock (January 26), which stars Natasha Lyonne as a detective who has the innate ability to spot when someone is lying.
There are plenty of other exciting options, too: the supernatural horror Mayfair Witches (January 8); spy thriller Rabbit Hole, starring 24’s Kiefer Sutherland as a private espionage agent framed for murder; a reboot of True Lies (January 2); Jason Segel and Harrison Ford’s therapist comedy Shrinking (January 27); and Mindy Kaling’s animated adult take on Velma from Scoody-Doo all look particularly intriguing.
Succession fans will already have noticed that the hit HBO comedy-drama is returning in the spring from the first trailer for the upcoming fourth season. Unfortunately, we’re still not exactly sure of the exact release date. That’s the same for pretty much every other 2023 show mentioned below, as the streamers and networks like to keep this detail very close to their chests.
We do know that the spring will see Disney+ unleash two of their most anticipated new shows of the year. That is, if you’re Marvel and Star Wars fans, anyway. The latest addition to the MCU, Secret Invasion, stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, who battles shapeshifting aliens known as the Skulls from infiltrating Earth.
Meanwhile, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew comes from the mind of Jon Watts, who oversaw Tom Holland’s recent Spider-Man trilogy. Very little is known about the show, except that it’s a coming-of-age story set during the same period of The Mandalorian, and that it also stars Jude Law.
If you’re after shows a little less action-packed and more character driven, there’s Amazon’s Daisy Jones & The Six (March 3), which revolves around a rock band’s rise during the L.A. music scene of the 1970s. Netflix’s adaptation of Liu Cixin’s sci-fi novel The Three-Body Problem, about Earth’s encounter with an alien civilization, also looks intriguing.
It’ll also be good to see Brie Larson’s return to acting after an absence of more than three years. In Lessons in Chemistry for Apple TV+, Larson will play a 1960s scientist who hosts a cooking show for housewives that has more of an agenda than just the culinary arts.
Those more interested in lighter fare should look out for Bupkis, which teams Peter Davidson with gangster icons Edie Falco and Joe Pesci, the latter of whom has excitingly come out of acting retirement for the show. Peacock describes their show as a “heightened fictionalized version” of Davidson’s life, which should be particularly tasty considering his tabloid antics.
The new animated series Krapopolis from Dan Harmon (Rick and Monty, Community), set in mythical Ancient Greece, and the Jon Hamm-led detective comedy Grimmsburg, also look like they have plenty of potential, too.
NOW STREAMING FROM OZY STUDIO
The arrival of summer marks the return of several incredibly popular shows.
The second season of Loki, starring the deliciously mischievous Tom Hiddleston, has been promised for the middle of 2023. There should also be the third season of Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez’s Only Murders in the Building. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story marks the first limited series spin-off from Netflix’s raunchy period drama, while audiences will also have to bid farewell to Netflix comedy Never Have I Ever, with its fourth and final outing.
It’s not just modern shows that will be making a return, though. Rather incredibly, a Frasier sequel, which will see Kelsey Grammar reprising the titular psychiatrist-cum-radio host, will premiere on Paramount+. However, it’s still unclear whether it’ll hit screens before the end of 2023.
And it wouldn’t be a quarter without more Marvel and Star Wars TV shows. This time around, there’s the Hawkeye spin-off Echo, plus season 2 of Marvel’s enjoyable anthology series What If …?. Meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away, Rosario Dawson will play the titular role in Ahsoka, which revolves around the Padawan who studied under Anakin Skywalker before he turned to the dark side of the Force. The character previously appeared in The Mandalorian and the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
There are some nice-looking original shows, too. HBO’s The Idol comes from the mind of Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye and Sam Levinson, the creator, writer, and director of Euphoria. It’s set in the music industry, revolves around a modern-day cult, and stars Lily-Rose Depp.
Political drama The White House Plumbers, which sees Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux playing the accidental masterminds behind the exposing of Watergate, sounds like a hoot. As does the reboot of Time Bandits —especially as it’s written by Taika Waititi, Jermaine Clement, and Iain Morris — and the John Wick prequel series The Continental, about the origins and inner workings of the hotel for assassins.
Let’s just get the Marvel shows out of the way first: Ironheart will see an MIT student building a suit of armor that rivals Tony Stark’s Iron Man, while Agatha: Coven of Chaos is the Wandavision spin-off that should be worth watching just for the pairing of Kathryn Hahn and Aubrey Plaza.
Shockingly, there’s no addition to the Star Wars universe planned for the end of the year. But DC should join in the fun around this time of the year with its very own spin-off series for The Penguin. Hopefully, much like The Batman, it will feature another wonderfully bombastic performance from Colin Farrell as the comic book villain.
Toward the end of 2023, we’ll have to say goodbye to two of the most popular shows of recent years: The Crown and Ted Lasso. At least the return of Netflix’s humongous smash-hit show Squid Game will help appease viewers upset by their departures (although the ruthless Korean survival thriller is also likely to immediately traumatize audiences when it does finally hit screens.)
The year 2023 will round out with some utterly enticing new shows, too. David Kelley returns with a new crime drama, Love and Death, which pairs Elizabeth Olsen and Jesse Plemons, and is based on the true story of a Texas wife accused of murder. Then there’s Masters of Air, the Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg-produced story of World War II’s aerial battles, starring the recent star of Elvis, Austin Butler, and the new Joker, Barry Keoghan.
These actors’ presence in such an anticipated show once again proves that the line between television and film is non-existent. It should be that way for the foreseeable future. Or, at the very least, until the wave of reality shows and live sports takes over.
