The 70 Most Anticipated TV Shows & Mini-Series Of 2023

Dec 19, 2022

Two years ago, Bob Iger pointed to the rafters and said, the future of our business is on streaming and Disney+. By then, everyone had a streaming service or one in the works, and it ushered in the age of #TooMuchContent. However, as we know, after the Wall Street Netflix crash of April 2022, which impacted the entire industry as the stock market totally reevaluated the worth of all streaming services, things are changing. Netflix has finally gone to an ad-tiered model, Bob Iger is back, having replaced Bob Chapek because Disney’s mid-year quarter earnings were terrible, and HBO and HBO Max, as you know, doubt have heard, are either canceling series they already renewed (“Minx,” and “The Nevers” got axed yesterday) or taking series’ completely off their service (“Westworld”) in drastic cost-saving measures. The industry is a bit under siege and a bit underwater at the moment.

However, this is all to say even if Disney+ cuts back on the number of Marvel or Lucasfilm shows in the future, as many of speculated, there is already so much in the pipeline from every company that the era of #TooMuchContent is likely going to be with us until 2024 regardless. So this year’s Most Anticipated TV list is 70 films long, but hey, maybe in a few years, it’ll be down to a manageable 50, and people actually have time to watch things on TV rather than hear about them from haggard critics who have gotten no sleep.

Yes, yes, it’s only mild whining. We are at least offered a hell of a lot of good television right now, even though a lot of it gets lost in the shuffle. 2023 promises similar kinds of riches, much of it made by top-shelf auteurs, filmmakers, or A-list showrunners. Without further ado, our list of the Most Anticipated TV Shows and Mini-Series of 2023. – Rodrigo Perez

71. “Tiny Beautiful Things” (bonus pick!)
Based on Cheryl Strayed‘s best-selling novel (she’s the one that wrote “Wild” with Reese Witherspoon, who produces here), “Tiny Beautiful Things” star Kathryn Hahn, Sarah Pidgeon, Quentin Plair, and Tanzyn Crawford. Created by Liz Tigelaar (“Little Fires Everywhere“), the limited series centers on a floundering writer (Hahn) who becomes a revered advice columnist while her own life is falling apart.
Airdate: Spring 2023, via Hulu. – RP

Writer/director Mike Flanagan went from indie horror filmmaker to carving out an entire cottage industry on Netflix with adult horror mini-series. While he had a minor chink in his armor this year (“The Midnight Club” was canceled after one season), he’s got lots waiting in the wings. Up next is the miniseries “The Fall of the House of Usher,” based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe. The cast stars Bruce Greenwood, Carla Gugino, Mary McDonnell, Carl Lumbly, Mark Hamill, Willa Fitzgerald, Rahul Kohli and many more.
Airdate: TBD, but shot long ago, so maybe saved for spooky season in October? – RP
69. “Time Bandits” (Apple TV+)
In the age of #TooMuchContent, has anyone made out better than residual executive producer king Taika Waititi? The man is connected to dozens of shows he either created, co-created or has a hand in: “Reservation Dogs” and ”What We Do In The Shadows” on FX, “Our Flag Means Death” on HBO Max (Season 2 likely arriving in 2023), and now “Time Bandits” on Apple TV+ (surely his 2023 goal is a Netflix, and Paramount+ show as well). Based on the Terry Gilliam movie of the same name, it’s a comedic journey through time and space with a ragtag group of thieves and their newest recruit: an eleven-year-old history nerd. Lisa Kudrow, Charlyne Yi,  Kal-El Tuck, Tadhg Murph, Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, Rune Temte, Kiera Thompson, and Rachel House star. Waititi directs the pilot and writes alongside Iain Morris and Jemaine Clement.
Airdate: TBD, but presumably later in the year. – RP
68. “The Last Thing He Told Me” (Netflix)
Netflix loves to adapt hit novels, and you don’t get much more hit than this 2021 smash bestseller, a title that debuted at #1 and stayed on The New York Times bestseller list for a stunning 48 weeks. Reese Witherspoon’s company ran in and swept up the rights to the story, announcing quickly that Julia Roberts was once attached (pre-book release), but now it’s been revealed that Jennifer Garner will star in the lead role of a woman who investigates the disappearance of her husband with the help of her 16-year-old stepdaughter.
Airdate: TBD – Brian Tallerico
67. “American Born Chinese” (Disney+)
The acclaimed 2006 graphic novel by Gene Luen Yang gets the series treatment courtesy of the streaming giant and exec producer Destin Daniel Cretton (“Shang Chi“). Newcomer Ben Wang plays a struggling student who ends up pulled into a generations-spanning battle that involves Gods of Chinese mythology. Something cool about this project? It will basically be a reunion of the cast of the beloved “Everything Everywhere All at Once” as it brings in stars Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Stephanie Hsu. There’s nothing official yet, but it wrapped way back in July, so a 2023 date seems likely.
Airdate: TBD – BT

Acclaimed novelist Marlon James comes to TV for the first time with this prestige project for HBO. The author of the Man Booker-winning “A Brief History of Seven Killings” writes the original story of a Jamaican-born detective named Millie-Jean Black (Tamara Lawrence), who has to come back to Kingston to join the force, crossing paths with a Scottish detective named Luke Holborn (Joe Dempsie). This sounds like one of those HBO projects that could have a very rich sense of time and place, and it shot on location in May 2022.
Airdate: TBD – BT
“I’m writing an African world but you can tell it went through the Jamaican blender”Marlon James, #Jamaican writer, born 52 years ago today on 24 Nov 1970, in Kingston. Created HBO/ Channel 4 television series ‘Get Millie Black’; shot in Jamaica and London; release date soon. pic.twitter.com/lWCUEwIIUl— Wayne Chen (@wcchen) November 24, 202265. “Anansi Boys” (Prime Video)
It feels like this has been in some stage of production forever, but it’s finally getting closer to becoming a reality on Amazon’s Prime Video next year after wrapping its six-episode season back in May. While this is not technically connected to Neil Gaiman’s “American Gods,”  it does feature one of the same characters, a version of the West African God Anansi named Mr. Nancy, played here by the phenomenal Delroy Lindo, whose blend of strength and charisma seems perfect for the part. Malachi Kirby, CCH Pounder, Fiona Shaw, Whoopi Goldberg, and more co-star in a project that Gaiman himself co-wrote.
Airdate: TBD – BT
64. “Shōgun” (Hulu)
Looking to follow in the footsteps of “Warrior” (one of the most under-appreciated shows on TV) “Shōgun,” is a remake of the 1980 series of the same name, based on James Clavell’s 1975 novel. Led by a primarily Asian cast, including Hiroyuki Sanada, Anna Sawai, and Tadanobu Asano, the story follows “the collision of two ambitious men from different worlds and a mysterious female samurai.” The feudal Japan set series is seen through the eyes of an English sailor, John Blackthorne (Cosmo Jarvis), who is shipwrecked in “a land whose unfamiliar culture will ultimately redefine him.”
Airdate: TBD, via FX – Andrew Bundy
63. “Kaos” (Netflix)
Jeff Goldblum plays Zeus. What else do you really need to know? How about this? This mythological comedy was created by the excellent Charlie Covell, who gifted Netflix one of their most underrated shows in “The End of the F**king World.” Need more? Janet McTeer is Hera; Cliff Curtis is Poseidon; David Thewlis is Hades; Debi Mazar is Medusa. My Gods. This thing just started filming in August and sounds pretty VFX-heavy, but it could drop by the end of the year.
Airdate: TBD – BT
62. “The Changeling” (Apple TV+)
Apple TV+ hasn’t really found a spooky standout series, but this could change all of that. Based on an award-winning 2017 horror novel by Victor LaValle, it stars the amazing LaKeith Stanfield as a man whose wife appears to be suffering from postpartum depression after the birth of their child. After she does something horrible, he wonders if there isn’t something even more terrifying going on. Adina Porter co-stars in a project directed by music video vet Melina Matsoukas, who helmed the divisive “Queen & Slim” and executive produced the excellent “Insecure.”
Airdate: TBD – BT
61. “Florida Man” (Netflix)
Jason Bateman gave Netflix one of their most resilient critical darlings in “Ozark,” and he returns to the streaming giant this year in the role of a producer on this promising thriller with a great cast. The excellent Edgar Ramirez stars as Mike Valentine, a guy who has to return home to Florida to track down the girlfriend of a mobster, unearthing a lot of his own family secrets along the way. Anthony LaPaglia plays Mike’s father, and Abbey Lee co-stars in what will be a part of a multi-year production deal with Bateman and his production company. This thing was filmed near the end of 2021, so expect it soon on Netflix.
Airdate: TBD – BT
