2023 was an interesting year for film enthusiasts. Several great shows premiered, including Poker Face (Peacock) and The Last of Us (Season 1 – HBO).
At the same time, streamers like Netflix, Disney+and Max canceled several shows like Shadow and Bone while others wrapped up their final seasons.
Since 2024 seems to be yet another exciting year for film lovers, we have compiled a list of TV shows to include in your watch list this year. Read on!
True Detective: Night Country (HBO/Max Jan 14)
There is no doubt that the last two seasons of True Detective did not live up to the first season.
The second season was the most ‘hated,’ fans complaining of a convoluted plot and unrelentingly bleak tone.
At some point, many fans thought it would end in season 2. However, season 3 came, and although it was not as good as season 1, it was better than season 2.
Moving on, a 4th season premiered on January 14th. The story takes us to a small town on the outskirts of Alaska where eight men working in a Tsalal Arctic Research Center disappear under unclear circumstances.
Expect a thrilling show as investigators led by Liz Danvers (Jodie Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Kali Reis) seek the truth behind the disappearance, where they uncover a web of conspiracy.
Abbott Elementary (ABC February 7)
If you loved the last two seasons of Abbott Elementary like I did, you must be excited for the new series premiering next month.
But if this is your first time watching it, catch the workplace comedy featuring a group of dedicated teachers working together at a Philadelphia school.
The teachers face many challenges because they are outnumbered, and the school infrastructure could be better. Nevertheless, they love what they do.
At the end of season 2, Janine (Quinta Brunson) and Gregory (Tyler James Williams) confessed their feelings for each other but agreed not to date yet.
After the success of the last two seasons, the producers have added one more episode, meaning season 3 will consist of 14 episodes.
The Regime (HBO, March 3)
If you love political dramas, mark your calendar for the release of The Regime.
The 6-episode series tells the story of a year-long happenings within a palace of a modern European Country.
The story is written by Will Tracy, who also serves as the executive producer, along with Stephen Frears.
From the trailers released on April 12, 2023, and December 20, Kate Winslet is the star taking the role of the Chancellor.
If this series is as good as Kate’s previous movies, get ready to be amazed.
Kate is a multiple award-winning actress with an Oscar, two Emmys, and a Grammy. Other stars alongside Kate are Matthias Schoenaerts, Andrea Riseborough and Martha Plimpton.
Bridgerton season 3 (Netflix, Part 1 May 16 and Part 2 – June 13)
Bridgerton’s last two seasons have been a big hit. The star of season 1, Phoebe Dynevor (Daphne), was married off to Simon Bassett (Regé-Jean Page), Duke of Hastings, setting the bar quite high for her younger siblings.
She also appeared in season 2, though not as the star. Unfortunately, she won’t be appearing in Bridgerton season 3.
However, Netflix has confirmed the return of the second season lovebirds Simone Ashley (Kate) and Jonathan Bailey (Anthony), as well as fan-favorites Nicola Coughlan (Penelope) and Luke Newton (Collins).
Nicola Coughlan revealed on her Instagram that season 3 will be a Penelope and Collins Story – how exciting!
House of the Dragon (season 2)
If you loved Game of Throneshow about you know what led to the war?
House of the Dragon is set about 200 years before Game of Thrones and is centered around the Targaryen family (the ancestors of Daenerys Targaryen, the mother of dragons).
From the second season trailer, the fighting and the dragon-riding will continue.
The co-creator Ryan Condal mentioned that the second season won’t have the many time jumps the previous season had to cover the events that led to the war. It will mostly focus on the war itself.
