12 TV Shows We’re Looking Forward To in 2023

Is literally marking our calendars a sign of TV addiction? If so, we’re addicted.

The Muppets Mayhem

The Muppets are back on TV once more, and this time we’re following their in-house band the Electric Mayhem as they try to make a hit record. We’re looking forward to the Muppets skewering the modern music industry and we’re also looking forward to more “Mah Na Mah Na,” which must be coming back in some form.

The Fall of the House of Usher

Based on the Edgar Allen Poe story, this horror miniseries is created by Mike Flanagan, the same guy who did Midnight Mass and The Midnight Club. It should be suitably scary!

Marvel’s Secret Invasion

Skrulls are the shape-shifting aliens from Captain Marvel, and in the comics they’re big-time villains. It looks like they’ve invaded Earth, so Nick Fury is back to defend the world.

The Last of Us

One of the greatest games of all time, The Last of Us is a story-driven zombie game uniquely well suited to the small screen. Hopefully it makes the transition well.

Chris Rock Live Show

It’s been forever (actually, four years) since Chris Rock brought us a comedy special, so we’re excited to see what he’s been thinking about since.

Gordon Ramsay’s Food Stars

Gordon Ramsay’s new competition series will see the cantankerous British chef seek out fresh talent in the food world. If contestants impress Ramsay enough, he’ll financially back them in their big new idea. We’re excited to see what it’s all about.

Our Planet II

David Attenborough documentaries are an event. We’re sure this one will be gorgeously shot and break some kind of ground in the world of environmental filmmaking.

Baby Shark’s Big Movie

Okay, we’re not actually looking forward to this one. We’re dreading it. But we’re putting it here to give fair warning: if you have a toddler, keep ’em away from all advertising or make peace with getting that damn song stuck in your head.


Star Wars fans are spoiled for content. Fan-favourite Ahsoka Tano is finally back in her own miniseries, and we’re thrilled. Rosario Dawson is reprising the role, while Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are heading up the effort.

The Bear (Season 2)

The Bear was our favourite surprise in 2022, so we’re looking forward to what’s next for our favourite beleaguered chef. In the meantime, maybe we’ll try to cook the cola-braised short ribs from the show.

Love and Death

This Elizabeth Olsen–fronted show is based on the true story of Candy Montgomery, an axe murderer from Texas.

9-1-1: Lone Star (Season 4)

A whole lot happened last season on 9-1-1: Lone Star, but it’s mostly resolved. Still, we’re looking forward to a big wedding and whatever incredible disaster the 126 will have to deal with during the reception. Maybe there will be two volcanoes this time?
