There's never been so much TV, and 2023 has plenty of shows to look forward to. We'll be on the edge of our seats as a bunch of favorite television and streaming shows return and tons of intriguing new stories hit our screens.

Among the familiar faces, the Succession family are at each other's throats again, while the Yellowjackets crash-land back onto screens and the Next Generation crew beam up in Star Trek: Picard. Ted Lasso, Jack Ryan and Mrs. Maisel are back too, while Frasier, Justified and Futurama pick up where they left off years ago.

Just like 2023's movies, it's a big year for prequels and spin-offs. Bridgerton, John Wick and The Boys are among the hits inspiring new shows, including more Walking Dead spin-offs than you can shake a desiccated zombie at. Popular movies True Lies, Gremlins, Time Bandits and Grease are rebooted, and as usual there's a ton of Marvel and Star Wars series coming to Disney Plus (including The Mandalorian).

Happily, 2023 also sees a ton of intriguing original ideas. Rian Johnson's Poker Face, Apple's Hello Tomorrow! and nun-versus-AI drama Mrs. Davies look great. HBO's The Idol and Netflix's sci-fi thriller The 3 Body Problem also have our attention. And among the megastars on the small screen this year are Jodie Foster in True Detective, Woody Harrelson in Watergate drama The White House Plumbers and Harrison Ford in Apple's Shrinking. 

Some big hitters may or may not arrive this year, but we've included them in the list because we can't wait to see them. That includes Steven Spielberg's WW2 drama Masters of the Air, Batman spin-off The Penguin, the Fallout adaptation and of course Squid Game season 2.
