‘Dear Edward,’ ‘Party Down,’ ‘You’ S4 & More
Feb 3, 2023
As has been the case for many years now, streaming services dominate the field of television in terms of new releases every upcoming month, with a definite push from Apple TV+ in terms of original content. While HBO’s “The Last of Us” will continue to dominate the discourse, there are still plenty of new and returning series likely to start conversations of their own. With a decent mix of premieres along with series entering their final seasons and some of the big hitters coming back in March (“Succession” and “Yellowjackets,” to name just two,) February is poised for a lot of catch-up and new discoveries, with shows such as “Hello Tomorrow!” being the most intriguing so far.
