40 Must-See Shows To Watch

May 1, 2023

It isn’t a secret that during the rise of streaming, the fate of episodic television wasn’t clear. Now, many would say that they prefer shows that have the time to explore the story, the characters, and the themes throughout a season over a movie. 
Many shows highlight the strength of television, and streaming services have made it a competitive market. This year has already seen “The Last of Us,” “Pokerface,” “Shrinking,” and “Daisy Jones and The Six,” on top of the new seasons of shows like “Succession,” “The Marvelous Ms. Masel, “Shadow and Bone,” and “You”— there’s so much for audiences to love. Thankfully, this upcoming summer slate doesn’t show any sign of momentum stopping or even slowing down at all.

“Ted Lasso” Season 3 
So technically, Season three of “Ted Lasso” is already airing. However, the second half of the final season airs in the summer season, and we’ve included it because we love it. Jason Sudeikis is back as the head football coach of AFC Richmond. Suiting up alongside Sudeikis for the last time are Brett Goldstein, Brendan Hunt, Nick Mohammed, and Hannah Waddingham (our review).
Release Date: Catch up on and finish “Ted Lasso” on Apple TV+ now. 
“A Small Light”
The story of Anne Frank, the young Jewish girl who wrote one of the most famous and tragic diaries of all time during WWII, is shifted towards the story of compassion, centering on Miep Gies, a Danish woman who felt morally obligated to help hide Otto Frank and his Jewish family from the Nazis during WWII. Bel Powley, Liev Schreiber, Joe Cole, Amira Casar, Billie Boullet, and Ashley Brooke star. Filmmaker Susanna Fogel, writer of “Booksmart,” and director of “Cat Person,” directs the pilot and exec produces (our review).
Release Date: May 1 on National Geographic.
“White House Plumbers”
This five-part limited series imagines the behind-the-scenes story of how Nixon’s political saboteurs, E. Howard Hunt (Woody Harrelson) and G. Gordon Liddy (Justin Theroux) accidentally toppled the presidency they were zealously trying to protect… and their families along with it (our review).
Release Date: May 1 on HBO.
“The Other Two”
From Emmy-nominated former “Saturday Night Live” co-head writers Chris Kelly & Sarah Schneider comes a third “The Other Two” season. After comparing themselves for years to their much-younger pop star brother, Chase Dreams (Case Walker), who is now a full adult, and their talk show host mother (Molly Shannon), who’s now more powerful than she could have ever imagined, Brooke and Cary (Heléne Yorke and Drew Tarver) are finally standing on their own two feet – entirely “successful” in their own right (our review).
Release Date: May 4 on HBO Max.
“Bupkis” 
“Bupkis” is a semi-autobiographical series following Pete Davidson as he works through complex family dynamics and fame to form meaningful relationships; it is a show that straddles the absurdity and the reality in hopes of uncovering what it is to be Pete. Starring in the show alongside Davidson are Edie Falco and Joe Pesci, but there is a star-studded list of guest stars that will make appearances, including John Mulaney, John Stewart, Steve Buscemi, Bobby Cannavale, Paul Walter Houser, and Al Gore.
Release Date: May 4 on Peacock.
“Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story” 
“Bridgerton” is one of the biggest hits in Netflix’s history. The series focuses on a different Bridgerton child and their love life each season, just as each Julia Quinn novel does. This series, however, is written by Quinn in collaboration with Shonda Rhimes and focuses on Queen Charlotte before audiences knew the widowed queen that is so fond of the Bridgerton family. Young Charolette will be played by India Amarteifio, who stars alongside Adjoa Andoh, Michelle Fairley, Ruth Gemmell, and Corey Mylchreest.
Release Date: May 4 on Netflix.
“Silo” 
“Silo” is the apocalyptic story of the last 10,000 people on Earth and the mile-deep silo they call home that is protecting them from the world. The intriguing part is that no one knows when the silo was built and what happened to the outside world, and when someone tries to find out, they face deadly consequences. The 10-episode series stars Rebecca Ferguson, Iain Glen, and Will Patton. 
Release Date: May 5 on Apple TV+.
“Class of ’09” 
Set at three specific points in time, the show follows a class of FBI agents facing immense changes as AI alters the criminal justice system. “Class of ’09” examines the nature of justice and humanity and how the choices that we make define us. The series stars Brian Tyree Henry, Sephideh Moafi, Brian J. Smith, Kate Mara, and Jake McDorman.
Release Date: May 10 on Hulu.
“The Great” Season 3
Hulu’s period comedy starring Elle Fanning as young Catherine the Great is set to return this summer. Season three is said to pick up Catherine’s battle for the throne with Peter III of Russia, where Season two left off. Nicholas Hoult is back as Peter, as are Phoebe Fox and Adam Godley as Marial and Archbishop Archie, respectively.
Release Date: May 12 on Hulu.
“City on Fire” 
On the Fourth of July, 2003, Samantha is shot in Central Park. As her case is investigated, it is discovered that she may be the crucial link between crimes that have happened across the city and a wealthy family with secrets. “City on Fire” stars Chase Sui Wonders, Wyatt Oleff, Jemima Kirke, and Nico Tortorella.
Release Date: May 12 on Apple TV+.
