TV Shows That Will Blow Everyone Away In 2024

2022 was an incredible year for TV. Whichever streaming service you turned to, there was a new or returning series to hold your attention, be it HBO Max's dark comedy thriller "The Flight Attendant" or Disney+'s gritty "Star Wars" spinoff "Andor." Even network shows like "Grey's Anatomy" continued to deliver plenty of drama, shocking viewers with Ellen Pompeo's exit after 19 seasons. 2023 promises to measure up, too, with an impressive TV slate that kicked off with HBO's new post-apocalyptic series "The Last of Us" and saw Logan Lerman's Nazi-hunting crew return to Amazon Prime Video in the second season of "Hunters" after a three-year absence. Disney+ will then close out 2023 with the Marvel series "Agatha: Coven of Chaos," which is scheduled for a winter release.

Before we know it, 2024 will be here. Thankfully, those aforementioned streaming services and big networks plan their content years in advance, so there are already myriad TV series to look forward to. The year kicks off with more Marvel superhero action on Disney+, followed by a new foray into "The Walking Dead" universe and the long-awaited return of Rick Riordan's fan-favorite character Percy Jackson. So, without further ado, let's get a better look at the shows we know are going to blow everyone away in 2024.

Daredevil: Born Again

Marvel delighted fans when it announced British star Charlie Cox would be returning to the MCU for his own series, "Daredevil: Born Again," at San Diego Comic-Con in 2022. The series will build on what viewers have already seen of Cox's Matt Murdock in "Spider-Man: No Way Home" and "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law," but the actor made it clear that his return is not a continuation of his previous Netflix series, which ended in 2018. Speaking to NME, Cox pointed out: "This has to be a reincarnation, it has to be different, otherwise why are we doing it?"

That's not the only difference viewers can expect, either. Since everyone involved in making "Daredevil: Born Again" wants the series to appeal to as many people as possible, Cox thinks the tone of the series will be pretty different. "My instinct is that on Disney+ it will be dark but it probably won't be as gory," he explained.

Cox confirmed that filming for the 18-episode series will take place in New York throughout 2023, from February to December, with the series scheduled for a Spring 2024 release, per Marvel. Plotwise, Cox imagines it being very involved in Matt Murdock's work as a lawyer, as well as his time spent as the vigilante hero. The actor will be joined by Vincent D'Onofrio who plays Wilson "Kingpin" Fisk. The pair previously worked together on "Daredevil" before D'Onofrio reprised the role in "Hawkeye." Additionally, Michael Gandolfini, Margarita Levieva, Sandrine Holt, and Nikki M. James are all slated to appear.

Marvel Zombies

The MCU is continuing to roll out new TV shows, and after "Daredevil: Born Again," "Marvel Zombies" will expand the superhero universe. The animated series is based on the fifth episode of Season 1 of "What If...?," which was titled "What If...Zombies?" It depicts what happens to the MCU when Hank Pym returns from the Quantum realm with a virus that turns the Avengers into ravenous zombies.

The new series is obviously going to continue the zombie theme of the episode, but it may shy away from making the Avengers its main focus. According to TVLine, the animated series "re-imagines the Marvel Universe as a new generation of heroes battle against an ever-spreading zombie scourge." This means "Marvel Zombies" could be set to introduce an entirely new cast of heroes.

The outlet has also reported that "What If...?" director Brian Andrews is on board for the series, which has been given a TV-MA rating, per Screen Geek. So, it sounds like "Marvel Zombies" isn't going to be holding back. The mature audience rating means viewers could see more gory and gruesome scenes from the undead in 2024.

Moana: The Series

Moana is back, but this time for television in "Moana: The Series." The animated musical series will continue telling Moana's story following the events of the 2016 film. Disney+ hasn't revealed much about the upcoming show, but, as managing editor of Nerdist Alicia Lutes noted to USA Today, Moana's empathy and compassion make her such an interesting character. The way she helped the goddess Te Fiti instead of trying to vanquish her was "a powerful thing to see in a children's movie, especially between two women," Lutes added. So, regardless of where the plot takes the series, viewers can expect Moana's core character traits to shine through.

The series will be helmed by David G. Derrick Jr. ("Encanto"), rather than Ron Clements and John Musker, who directed the 2016 animated feature. Clements and Musker are both busy with the "Princess and the Frog" spinoff, "Tiana," which is on track for its 2023 release. "Moana: The Series" was on the same timeline, but has since been pushed back to 2024 to allow more time for production.

Auli'i Cravalho is reprising her role as the title character, but no other casting announcements have been made yet, so it's unclear if the likes of Dwayne Johnson will return for the series. Disney could use this opportunity to throw some new characters in the mix. Regardless, the series promises to be an exciting adventure as "Moana and her friends continue to explore the South Pacific," per IMDb.

The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live

"The Walking Dead" universe has been expanding for years. The show's first spinoff, "Fear the Walking Dead," came in 2015 and was followed up by "The Walking Dead: World Beyond" and "Tales of the Walking Dead." Although the original series has now ended, airing its dramatic final episode on AMC on November 20, 2022, there are plenty of stories in "The Walking Dead" universe left to explore. Two new shows, "The Walking Dead: Dead City" and "The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon" bring back some of the universe's fan-favorite characters like Maggie, Negan, and Daryl in 2023.

Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira are also set to reprise their roles as Rick and Michonne in "The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live," which is set to premiere in 2024. "The Walking Dead" Season 11 finale briefly teased what is expected to be the show's starting point — with Rick disappearing into the helicopter and Michonne searching for him on horseback. Their long separation has, of course, been challenging, but the show's new teaser confirms that viewers will see their epic love story continue as they reunite in the AMC six-episode series next year.

Lincoln and Gurira will have more creative control this time around, though. Both actors serve as executive producers, and Gurira is also credited as a writer on the spinoff. Additionally, Scott M. Gimple, the chief content officer of "The Walking Dead" universe, will be the showrunner.

Stranger Things (Season 5)

The Hawkins gang is returning for a last hurrah in "Stranger Things" Season 5, which is due to premiere on Netflix in 2024. Speaking to GQ shortly after Part 2 of Season 4 dropped, actor David Harbour (who plays Jim Hopper) outlined the timeline for the fifth and final season: "I think we'll [shoot] next year. They're finishing writing it this year, and they need to prep and stuff ... so it'd probably come out mid-2024, based on our track record."

Series creators the Duffer brothers have the story all mapped out now, though, and viewers can expect Season 5 to have a time jump because of how quickly all the lead actors are growing up, they said to The Wrap. Ross and Matt Duffer have been keeping quiet about the plot of the upcoming season, other than teasing a Dungeons and Dragons-themed episode. However, they have revealed to Collider that the series is going to be another long one. They're aiming for around 10 hours of TV split into eight episodes.

Thankfully, that means plenty of screen time for fan-favorite characters like Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas Sinclair (Caleb McLaughlin), Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder), and Hopper. Additionally, the brothers told IndieWire that they're trying to resist bringing in any new characters so they can focus on the OGs.

Spider-Man: Freshman Year

It always felt like something was missing when Tom Holland entered the MCU having already semi-mastered his spidey abilities. Unlike in Tobey Maguire's and Andrew Garfield's turns as the character, none of Peter Parker's origin story made it onto the big screen. Moviegoers never saw him get his powers or learn to use them, or one of the most pivotal moments in his life — the death of Uncle Ben — which ultimately shapes him into the hero we've come to know.

Thankfully, Marvel recognized that there was still ground to cover with Peter Parker's early years, and the Disney+ animated series, "Spider-Man: Freshman Year," has entered the fold to fill in the gaps. According to Deadline, the show "follows Peter Parker on his way to becoming Spider-Man, harkening back to the character's comic book roots."

Additionally, the outlet noted that "Craig of the Creek" staff writer Jeff Trammell has signed on to be the series' head writer. However, not much else is known about the cast and crew of the series, and it's currently unclear if Holland will be reprising his role as the title character. That means Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, and Marisa Tomei's roles as MJ, Ned, and Aunt May are still up in the air, too.

Bridgerton (Season 4)

After its initial release in 2020, "Bridgerton" became Netflix's most streamed show ever (though it's since been knocked down a few pegs by the likes of "Squid Game" and "Wednesday"). This means that the streaming giant felt confident renewing the show for multiple seasons at the same time.

It's widely known that Season 3 of the Regency drama, which is due for release in December 2023, will focus on Colin and Penelope's burgeoning romance. This diverges from the book order, but if the series realigns with them for Season 4, then it's Benedict's love affair that viewers can expect to see chronicled in 2024. Benedict has had his share of romantic romps in Seasons 1 and 2, and it certainly doesn't seem like he's in a hurry to settle down. Perhaps it's just a matter of meeting that perfect person? In Julia Quinn's fourth novel, "An Offer From a Gentleman," the second oldest Bridgerton sibling falls for two women, who turn out to be the same person. Sophia "Sophie" Beckett is a character straight out of a fairy tale: The illegitimate daughter of an earl who's forced to live as a maid in her stepmother's home.

If it is in fact Benedict's love life that Season 4 follows, then viewers can expect Luke Thompson to take center stage. However, some fans have speculated that there will be another twist, and "Bridgerton" will skip ahead to Eloise's (Claudia Jessie) season instead. So far, viewers have seen her develop feelings for Theo Sharpe (Calam Lynch) — meaning she may have to choose between the printer's assistant and Sir Philip Crane, whom she marries in the book "To Sir Philip, With Love."

Deliver Me

Netflix is no stranger to adapting books for the small screen, with shows like "Bridgerton" bringing the streaming giant huge success. One of the platform's book-to-screen adaptations coming out in 2024 is the thriller "Deliver Me." The series comes from Swedish author Malin Persson Giolito's best-selling novel by the same name, according to a Netflix press release.

The author had her previous novel "Quicksand" adapted by the streamer in 2019, and she will reunite with Frida Asp and Fatima Varhos, the producer-writer duo she worked with then. Additionally, Giolito will make her screenwriting debut with the series. "I am so proud that this will also be my debut as a screenwriter. I thought Netflix's adaptation of 'Quicksand' was the best thing that would ever happen to me professionally. But I am beginning to think that this is even bigger," Giolito gushed about the announcement.

Per the synopsis, "Deliver Me" begins as "a fourteen-year-old boy lays face down in front of a swing-set as his life drains out of the gaping wound in his head. Behind him stands his best friend, a warm gun in his trembling hand." The series will explore hard topics of children committing violence and how that comes about, whether it's from social alienation, poverty, or negligence. Newcomer Olle Strand plays Dogge, the boy who pulls the trigger, and he's joined by Jhullian Carlsson, Solomon Njie, Yasir Hassan, and "Midsommar" star Henrik Norlén.

Our Oceans

Netflix doesn't just have period romance and dark thrillers on its 2024 slate. The streamer is also set to increase its natural history coverage with documentary series like "Our Oceans." A Netflix press release confirmed that the six-part series will explore the world's oceans, focusing on the parts that remain unexplored: "From the tropical warm waters of the Indian Ocean to the fiery depths of the Atlantic, from the unpredictable waters of the Pacific that are surrounded by a ring of fire to the freezing isolation of the Southern and Arctic Oceans, 'Our Oceans' explores the magical world of wonders that lies beneath the waves."

"Our Oceans" is one of six documentary series that the streamer is producing. The first was the Morgan Freeman-narrated series "Our Universe," which premiered in 2022, and will be followed by "Our Planet II" and "Life on Our Planet," which are scheduled for 2023. Coming alongside "Our Oceans" in 2024 is "Our Living World," which is a "definitive celebration of our living planet, revealing the astonishing web of connections that unites us all and sustains our universe's most magical phenomenon — life." Netflix has yet to announce the narrators for both of these series, but they promise to show off unseen areas of the natural world.

The Penguin

Following the release of the Robert Pattinson-led "The Batman" in 2022, it's full steam ahead on Matt Reeves' BatVerse. The film, which also starred Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, and Jeffrey Wright, introduced viewers to a new version of the Penguin, played by Irish actor Colin Farrell. His performance garnered so much praise that it wasn't long before Reeves was setting up a spinoff series based on the character. He also told Collider that the series will be instrumental in setting up the sequel to his 2022 film, adding that he's super excited about the evolution of this new universe.

Farrell previously expressed his excitement about the series to Collider. "I read the first episode, which is just so tasty and so unusual as the character was on the page and what Matt Reeves kind of envisioned when he was thinking of this iteration of the bang up of Oz." Not much else has been announced about the plot or the cast of the miniseries, but Deadline did report that Cristin Milioti had been cast as Sofia Falcone, the daughter of former crime boss Carmine Falcone, who was killed in "The Batman."

Farrell added that the series will be around six or eight hours long. The series began filming in New York in March 2023, before production was shut down by the WGA strike in June. "The Penguin" is still expected to have a 2024 release on Max.

Squid Game (Season 2)

Korean horror survival drama "Squid Game" became an instant hit on Netflix when it dropped on the platform in 2021. The show's protagonist, Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae), survived the twisted game show while his competitors were executed, but he's been totally changed by the experience, "Squid Game" creator Hwang Dong-hyuk told The Hollywood Reporter.

This has left the writer with an interesting way to move the show forward, saying that Gi-hun's more selfless nature pushes him toward a new mystery rather than a family reunion with his daughter. "So Season 2 is going to be about what that new Gi-hun is going to do and how things will unfold with this new kind of character," he explained.

He continued, teasing that "there will naturally be a flow of events that will lead all the way to the end of the season." Dong-hyuk kept quiet on the particulars of what these events could be, but shared with Variety that he planned to have finished writing the new series by the end of 2022 so that viewers could enjoy it on their screens in 2024. He lived up to his word, and principal filming on the series began in July in South Korea. It is expected to last for ten months, wrapping around May 2024.

Wednesday (Season 2)

Netflix's "Wednesday" ended up being one of the biggest shows of 2022. With Tim Burton behind the camera and "Smallville" writing duo Alfred Gough and Miles Millar penning the script, it's hardly a surprise. And, playing the titular Addams is Jenna Ortega, who delivers snappy dialogue and perfect one-liners in every scene — without blinking, of course.

Ortega is joined by stars like Emma Myers, Hunter Doohan, Gwendoline Christie, and Catherine Zeta-Jones for a thrilling season that concludes with the teen detective outing former Wednesday Addams actor Christina Ricci's Marilyn Thornhill as the infamous Laurel Gates. Of course, it didn't wrap up too neatly, as there's still the question of Wednesday's stalker to attend to. Season 2 is expected to air around October 2024, perfect for next year's spooky season.

As for what else viewers might see at Nevermore Academy next season, there may be a few hugs, but "Wednesday" will be as dark and dramatic as ever. Speaking on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," Ortega teased, "I think we want to up the horror aspect a little bit and then get Wednesday out of the romantic situation and just let her be her own individual and fight her own crime." This should be pretty easy since her first boyfriend Tyler ended up being the Hyde she was chasing and her other possible love interest, Xavier Thorpe (Percy Hynes White), may not even appear in the next season following several allegations of sexual misconduct against White.

Avatar: The Last Airbender

There's no doubt that reboots are having a moment, but there's something extra special about bringing a beloved animated series into the live-action world. Based on the Nickelodeon show of the same name, "Avatar: The Last Airbender" will come to Netflix in 2024. But this live-action show has big shoes to fill as the original animated series, which ran on Nick from 2005 to 2008, has retained a 100% critic approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Thankfully, showrunner Albert Kim thinks they are up to the task. "A live-action version can not only faithfully translate what had been done in animation — it can bring a rich new visual dimension to a fantastic world," he explained to Tudum.

Additionally, Gordon Cormier, who plays the show's 12-year-old protagonist, said this live-action version brings to life everything fans love about the animated series. As the title suggests, Aang is the last Airbender in a land separated by the four elements — the Water Tribe, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and Air Nomads. As an Avatar, Aang is more powerful than most, but he still has a lot to learn before he can stop the Fire Nation from taking control of everything.

Cormier is joined by Kiawentiio Tarbell as Katara, Ian Ousley as Sokka, Dallas Liu as Zuko, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Iroh, Elizabeth Yu as Azula, and Daniel Dae Kim as Fire Lord Ozai who round out the central cast. The series will consist of 10 hour-long episodes.

The Recruit (Season 2)

"The Recruit" sees CIA lawyer Owen Hendricks (Noah Centineo) get swept up into a life-or-death mission involving Max Meladze (Laura Haddock), an untrustworthy former CIA asset. The eight-episode series quickly reached number one on Netflix after it premiered in December 2022, making it a firm favorite with fans and critics alike. The Chicago Sun-Times gave it a ringing endorsement, saying, "flashy, funny and action-packed, 'The Recruit' is a slick confection that pulls off the difficult feat of juggling a multi-plot, twist-filled, globetrotting storyline that careens all over the place and yet is relatively easy and quite fun to follow." Happily for Noah Centineo fans, that review was followed by the announcement that the crime-action series was renewed for a second season, which will come to the streamer in 2024.

Season 2 will no doubt be busy asking (and answering) the question, "Who is Karolina?" after the mysterious Russian woman (Maddie Hasson) shot her alleged mother Max and kidnapped Owen in the final moments of the first season finale. There may be some romance on the cards for Owen and Hannah (Fivel Stewart), who were getting closer in Season 1, but more likely he'll be dealing with the aftermath of having killed someone to protect Max while figuring out if he has a future at the CIA. Fans may be in the dark for now, but showrunner Alexi Hawley teased that he knows what direction he wants to take the series in and confirmed that he plans to kick things up a notch in Season 2.

You (Season 5)

2024 is going to be a banner year for Netflix fans, as the streamer has plenty of exciting TV shows lined up that are sure to blow you away. Along with new shows premiering, there are a number of returning shows, including the fan-favorite drama "You," which will conclude with its fifth and final season next year.

The last dramatic installment of the thrilling series will see Joe (Penn Badgley) return for one last murder spree. It's inevitable his total number of victims (which currently sits at 18, that we know about) will rise again next year. One unsuspecting victim may well be his new love interest, Kate (Charlotte Ritchie), who is also expected to return for Season 5.

Now that he's back in New York, after living in London under the pseudonym Professor Jonathan Moore, showrunner Sera Gamble plans to shake the show up with a mix of new and returning characters. That includes Joe's old neighbor Ellie, played by Jenna Ortega, who Gamble tried to get back for Season 4, too. "We have ideas for Ellie if her schedule allows her to visit us again," Gamble revealed to People. As for other familiar faces, the "You" creator teased that there's room for any past characters to appear — dead or alive. "Any character who's not dead who knows anything about Joe, it's fair game to try to exert any justice. And any character who is dead, [Joe] has a really active imagination," she teased.

The Acolyte

Ever since Pedro Pascal debuted as the Mandalorian in 2019, Disney+ has been delighting "Star Wars" fans with a slew of live-action TV shows. Fans have been especially excited about 2023's "Ahsoka," which gives the titular Jedi more live-action screen time than ever before. However, 2024 also promises an exciting new adventure with "The Acolyte," which is set in a time period never before depicted in a "Star Wars" movie or series. It takes place around 100 years before "The Phantom Menace," during the High Republic, which is essentially the golden age of the Jedi.

It's initially an idyllic time where the Jedi Knights don't have to use their lightsabers to battle anyone — but of course, that doesn't last. While the Sith are supposed to be gone, a mysterious Dark Side power is on the rise. Per the show's official synopsis, "A former Padawan [will] reunite with her Jedi Master to investigate a series of crimes, but the forces they confront are more sinister than they ever anticipated."

Pegged as a mystery thriller, "The Acolyte" stars some familiar faces including Dafne Keen ("Logan"), Amandla Stenberg ("The Hunger Games"), Manny Jacinto ("The Good Place"), and Lee Jung-jae ("Squid Game"). Jacinto revealed that viewers can expect a lot of action in this "Sith-led story," with plenty of lightsaber battles thanks to their samurai training. "If you loved that sequence with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan and Darth Maul [in The Phantom Menace] I think you're going to enjoy this show," he teased to Entertainment Weekly.

Red Eye

"Red Eye" is billed as an intense thriller set between the U.K. and China, and will premiere on ITVX in 2024. It follows Richard Armitage's Dr. Matthew Nolan, who has just returned to London after attending a medical conference in Beijing. However, a near-fatal crash in China's capital has seemingly followed him home as he's arrested at the airport in London. "Exhausted and confused, Nolan is accused of the murder of a woman who was in the car he crashed. Despite his protests that he was driving alone, Nolan is set to return to China to face charges," the show's official synopsis reads.

"Crazy Rich Asians" star Jing Lusi plays DC Hana Li, the British officer tasked with taking Nolan back to Beijing. Set over six episodes, "Red Eye" cuts between scenes in London, Beijing, and Nolan and Li's plane, where mysterious inflight deaths are beginning to occur. As she tries to protect Nolan, DC Li uncovers an escalating international conspiracy that seems poised to consume them both unless MI5 boss Madeline Delaney (Lesley Sharp) can help them expose the truth in time. Armitage, who's no stranger to intense mystery thrillers and crime dramas like "The Stranger," "Stay Close," and "Obsession," praised the production, saying, "This action-packed espionage thriller is one of the best scripts I have read in a long time."

Creature Commandos

Together, co-CEO's James Gunn and Peter Safran have set out an 8-10 year plan to unify DC's film, TV, and video game projects. In the same way that Marvel has its phases, the newly restructured DCU is set out in chapters. Following on from its 2023 projects — "Shazam! Fury of the Gods," "The Flash," "Blue Beetle," and "Aquaman 2" — the DCU will launch its "Gods and Monsters" chapter in 2024. The TV series "Creature Commandos" kicks things off.

Teasing a little about what viewers can expect from the 7-episode show, Gunn made an announcement on Twitter, saying, "Creature Commandos is an animated series. I've written all of the episodes. Something we are going to do that's a little bit different at DC is we are gonna have characters move into animation, out of animation, usually having the same actor play their voice as who plays them in live action."

"Guardians of the Galaxy" star Sean Gunn has followed his brother by also making the move to DC. He plays two characters, G.I. Robot and Weasel, while his former co-star Maria Bakalova joins him as Princess Ilana Rostovic. Frank Grillo takes the lead as Rick Flag Sr. and the trio are joined by Indira Varma, Zoë Chao, Alan Tudyk, and David Harbour who round out the Creature Commandos team. Viola Davis will also reprise her role as Amanda Waller alongside Steve Agee, who plays one of her A.R.G.U.S. agents. Additionally, Gunn confirmed on Threads that principal production has been completed.

The Night Agent (Season 2)

"The Night Agent" premiered on Netflix in 2023 to a favorable 74% critical consensus on Rotten Tomatoes and an even higher audience rating. The first season of the spy thriller follows FBI agent Peter Sutherland (Gabriel Basso) as he uncovers an increasingly complicated conspiracy about a high-level mole at the White House. The finale ends with Peter saving President Travers' (Kari Matchett) life, only to be left with a mysterious job offer as the show heads into Season 2.

However, there's a big twist for the upcoming season, which has been greenlit by Netflix and is set to reach the streamer in 2024. "The Night Agent" showrunner Shawn Ryan previously confirmed to Collider that Season 1 was a self-contained story. In a more recent interview with Comic Book, Ryan said viewers should expect major changes in the next season. "It does not take place in the DC area, which is where Season 1 took place. So we'll be in a different part of the world exploring different characters than we had in Season 1," he teased, before confirming that the show would still be centered around Basso's character.

Knowing that they set the bar so high with Season 1, Ryan and the creative team are going all out to create a fresh story for Season 2. However, that doesn't mean they've completely ruled out having a few familiar faces return, too — meaning that Peter's love interest Rose Larkin (Luciane Buchanan) might not be gone for good.


From superheroes to romantic dramas, Justin Hartley has done it all. Now, the "This Is Us" star is taking on a brand new role in the CBS crime drama "Tracker." Previously titled "The Never Game," "Tracker" follows Hartley's character Colter Shaw, a survivalist and nature expert. According to the show's official synopsis, "Colter roams the country as a 'reward seeker,' using his expert tracking skills to help private citizens and law enforcement solve all manner of mysteries while contending with his own fractured family."

"Tracker" is based on the 2019 novel "The Never Game" by Jeffery Deaver. The plot of the book sees Colter take on a missing persons case in California where he must track down a missing student from Silicon Valley. His investigation leads him to a series of grisly murders and kidnappings based on a video game. It's very possible that this could also be the premise of the series, but it may also just be a jumping-off point.

Deaver followed up his Colter Shaw Novel with three sequels — "The Goodbye Man," "The Final Twist," and "Hunting Time." which means there's plenty of source material for the CBS show to draw on if it continues beyond its first season. It is set to premiere after Super Bowl LVII on Sunday, February 11, 2024, before finding a home on Paramount+. Hartley will be joined by Fiona Rene ("The Lincoln Lawyer"), Robin Weigert ("Deadwood"), Abby McEnany ("Work in Progress"), and Eric Graise ("Locke & Key").

Vikings: Valhalla (Season 3)

"Vikings: Valhalla," better known simply as "Valhalla," is returning to screens for an adventurous third season in 2024. Filming on the upcoming series was completed in Ireland in October 2022, and Season 3 is expected to be 24 episodes, premiering on Netflix in the first quarter of 2024.

A teaser trailer for the new season was released shortly after Season 2 dropped in 2023. It confirms that Leif Erikson (Sam Corlett), Freydís Eiríksdóttir (Frida Gustavsson), and Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Sutter) will be back, but also suggests there are some pretty major changes ahead: The "Vikings" spin-off might be in for a time jump. The teaser showed Freydis with a young red-headed boy who might be her and Harald's son. However, whether Freydis and Harald have reconciled during the missing time (after she hid her pregnancy from him in Season 2) remains to be seen.

The teaser also confirms that Leif and Harald will reunite for a treacherous journey. Viewers can expect the Vikings to leave Scandinavia and travel to lands unknown — and undoubtedly, there will be some fierce battles along the way. As they explore new lands, the characters may start to experience a clash of cultures as Christianity takes root in Scandinavia. Additionally, the show will welcome some new cast members. Namely, Croatian-American actor Goran Visnjic is set to make his debut in the series as Erik the Red, Leif and Freydis's father.

Welcome to Derry

Since his original "IT" novel was released, Stephen King's universe has continued to expand, taking shape through movies, TV shows, and video games, as well as more books. Now the horror franchise is getting a long-awaited prequel in the form of the Max series "Welcome to Derry," which is scheduled to premiere in 2024.

"Welcome to Derry" features King's most iconic villain, Pennywise the Clown, but the 1960s series is set to act as an origin story for the infamous monster and lead up to the events of Andy Muschietti's 2017 film. The "IT" and "IT Chapter Two" director will serve as an executive producer on the series while also directing a handful of episodes, but it's Jason Fuchs ("I Still See You") and Brad Kane ("Black Sail") who are taking the helm on this sinister series.

In a huge change for the franchise, Bill Skarsgård, who played Pennywise in the films, will not be returning to the role. His replacement has not been announced. However, other casting announcements have been made, as Taylour Paige, Jovan Adepo, James Remar, Chris Chalk, Madeleine Stowe, and Stephen Rider are slated to appear in the series.

Although the identity of the actor playing Pennywise is so far being kept under wraps, filming for the series is underway. It began in Toronto in May 2023, before it was suspended by the SAG-AFTRA strike two months later. Prior to the delay, principal production was expected to wrap in December, but will likely now spill into 2024.

High Potential

"High Potential" is a new detective drama coming to ABC in 2024. It stars Kaitlin Olson of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" fame as single mom Morgan who moonlights as a private eye. Per the show's official synopsis, Morgan's talent for solving unusual crimes leads to a partnership with Karadec, a no-nonsense detective played by Daniel Sunjata.

The show is based on the popular French series "Haut Potentiel Intellectuel (HPI)." If it follows suit, viewers can expect to see Morgan to be a feisty character who stands up for herself and pushes back against authority. In "HPI," Morgan has a 160 IQ and is asked to partner with detectives to catch highly intelligent criminals.

"High Potential" is written and executive produced by Drew Goddard, who got his start as a staff writer on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" before going on to pen the screenplay for "The Martian" and serve as the showrunner on the "Daredevil" series. Alongside Olsen and Sunjata, the cast includes Javicia Leslie as Daphne, Deniz Akdeniz as Lev "Oz" Osman, Amirah J as Ava, Matthew Lamb as Elliot, and Judy Reyes as Selena. Per TVLine, "High Potential" was the first ABC pilot to be ordered for the 2023-3024 TV season, and with the line-up behind the scenes, it's sure to be a gripping drama.

Full Swing

Netflix's golf documentary series "Full Swing" was a smash success when it premiered in February 2023, and it has retained a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. With that clout, it's unsurprising that the sports series was renewed for a second season just a month later. When the news was announced, Brandon Riegg, Vice President of Unscripted and Documentary Series at Netflix, said, "Like so much of our growing sports slate, the compelling characters, competitive stakes, and vibrant storytelling reveal sides of the game you've never seen before, and we're excited to follow the unpredictable turns of the year ahead," per pgatour.com.

The first season of "Full Swing" followed a host of professional players, including 23-time PGA Tour winner Rory McIlroy, along with the likes of Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Sahith Theegala, Matt Fitzpatrick, and Joel Dahmen, just to name a few. The upcoming series will observe a new group of PGA Tour pros, recording them on and off the green throughout the 2023 season.

Along with the usual drama associated with professional sportsmanship, viewers can expect to see the fallout from the merging of the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour, and LIV Golf as 2023 marks the last year in this current tour format. The Netflix sports documentary is set to arrive in 2024, perhaps around the same time of year as the first season. Filming is expected to conclude around the end of November in conjunction with the end of the PGA Tour at the RSM Classic in Georgia.

The Americas

From the BBC's Natural History Unit, responsible for producing documentaries such as "Frozen Planet II," "Blue Planet II," and "Planet Earth II," comes a new entertainment series called "The Americas." In conjunction with NBC, this ten-part series, which features narration from Tom Hanks, will be released in Spring 2024.

Although this is the first time Hanks has narrated an unscripted entertainment series, "The Americas" promises to be quite the adventure. Originally titled "The New World," "The Americas" "will employ revolutionary filmmaking technology that will showcase the wonders, secrets and fragilities of the Americas — Earth's largest landmass and the only one to stretch between both poles — and reveal extraordinary, untold wildlife stories that deeply connect with millions around the world," per BBC.

"The Americas" is executive produced by Mike Gunton, an Emmy and BAFTA Award-winning wildlife producer who has worked alongside David Attenborough on projects like "Dynasties," "The Green Planet," and "Planet Earth II: A World of Wonder." This exploratory documentary will also feature music by two-time Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer, who has scored films such as "Interstellar," "Dune," and "Top Gun: Maverick."
