While we’ll have to wait a bit longer for Andor season two, fear not! 2023 is full of exciting, really good TV, including the highly anticipated The Last of Us and a new season of Succession. Here are our most anticipated TV shows of 2023.

The Last of Us (16 January)

The Last of Us comes with a lot of expectations. Genuinely one of the best gaming experiences of the last 10 years, HBO better deliver the goods and judging from the trailer, they will. Pedro Pascal stars as Joel, who is tasked with transporting a young girl, Ellie (Bella Ramsey), across the country. The catch? America is now filled with infected, zombie-like, bloodthirsty creatures, making the trip all the more dangerous. 

The Mandalorian (1 March)

Somehow two of the most highly anticipated TV shows of 2023 both star Pedro Pascal. Pascal will once again don the Mandalorian helmet (or will he?) for season three of the superb Star Wars show. He left little Grogu to learn the tricks of the Jedi with Luke Skywalker at the emotional ending to season 2 but the two will surely be united for more adventures in the new season.

She-Hulk ended up being a bit of a disappointment, so we can only wish Loki season 2 delivers. Overseen by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, we feel confident that season 2 will be just as confident and entertaining as season 1. Very few plot details are available, but we do know that most of the main cast are returning and Ke Huy Quan of Everything Everywhere All At Once fame will also join the cast.

Fallout (Late 2023)

Not much is known about the Fallout series, which only makes it more intriguing in our eyes. Based on the very popular, award-winning games, the series will star Walton Goggins, Ella Purnell and Kyle MacLachlan and it will take place in a post-apocalyptic America, much like The Last of Us.

Succession (Spring 2023)

The Roys are back! Season 3 ended with a shocking spectacle of wits and more power moves than we can count, so we can only expect season 4 to be awkward and tense after the Roy kids tried to overthrow their dad, only to be betrayed by Tom of all people.

Secret Invasion (Early 2023)

It’s another Marvel show but this looks like a big one. Samuel L. Jackson is back as Nick Fury as is Ben Mendelsohn as Talos and they are joined by Emilia Clarke and Kingsley Ben-Adir, who will also appear in next year’s Barbie. Skrulls, the shapeshifting aliens, have managed to infiltrate Earth and we can only assume that brings a lot of problems. 

Ahsoka (Late 2023)

Rosario Dawson returns to play Ahsoka, who we have glimpsed in The Mandalorian as well as The Clone Wars in animated form. Her own series will take place within the timeline of The Mandalorian, but exists as a separate, independent show. While very little is known of the plot, we do know the events will take place after the events of Return of the Jedi and Hayden Christensen will appear as Anakin Skywalker. 

True Detective (2023)

Since premiering in 2014, True Detective’s quality has gone up and down, but season 4 looks great so we’re officially getting our hopes up again. HBO confirmed in November that production was underway in Iceland, which sounds about right as the fourth season of the anthology series will depict the disappearance of eight men in Ennis, Alaska and the investigation that follows. Jodie Foster will be headlining the series.

Ted Lasso (Spring 2023)

Ted Lasso doesn’t officially have a release date, but we’re hoping AppleTV+ will release the third and, sadly, final season of the football dramedy in 2023. Jason Sudeikis will return as everyone’s favourite coach, but it’s really Nick Mohammed’s Nate we’re eager to see again. The character has become much darker since we were introduced to him in season 1 as the team’s enthusiastic kit man. 

Masters of the Air (Spring 2023)

With a starry cast that includes Elvis’ Austin Butler and Barry Keoghan, Masters of the Air is a must-see TV show next year. Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Cary Joji Fukunaga are producing this high-stakes war drama limited series. It will act as a companion piece to Band of Brothers and The Pacific and is based on the experiences of US Army’s Eighth Air Force.
