The Most Anticipated New and Returning TV Shows Coming in 2024

Given that Netflix is the streaming service with the most series overall, it stands to reason that the platform with the most high-profile projects without dates is Netflix. The last seasons of “Umbrella Academy,” “Cobra Kai,” and “Ripley” starring Andrew Scott are anticipated by viewers (perhaps in time for the spring Emmys). The Netflix audience will eventually see “Dead Boy Detectives,” Hayley Atwell as the lead in “Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft,” and David E. Kelley’s eagerly awaited adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s novel “A Man in Full,” starring Jeff Daniels and Diane Lane, among a plethora of other new and returning series.

Huge IP plays of the Batman spinoff “The Penguin” (starring Colin Farrell!) and “Dune: Prophecy,” a prequel series to the blockbuster movie franchise, are also available on Max and HBO. The highly anticipated undated shows begin with the Robert Downey Jr. satire “The Sympathizer” (probably this spring, for Emmy purposes). Season 2 of “Tokyo Vice” and the third seasons of “Hacks” and “The Sex Lives of College Girls” will both return for fresh seasons on Max.

While several Apple TV+ programs are included in this list, many more have not yet been scheduled, including “Dark Matter,” which is Joel Edgerton’s adaptation of Blake Crouch’s own novel, and “Lady in the Lake,” a limited series starring Natalie Portman and based on Laura Lippman’s 2019 mystery. Then there’s the minor issue of “Severance,” an Emmy-nominated show, returning for Season 2, which, in spite of rumors to the contrary, we’ve been told will be fantastic.

Netflix, Apple TV+, and HBO/Max are not the only streaming services failing to reveal the premiere dates of highly anticipated series: eventually. The release date of Georgia Hunter’s highly anticipated adaptation of her blockbuster book “We Were the Lucky Ones” on Hulu, which stars Joey King and Logan Lerman and is about a Jewish family during World War II, remains TBD. This also applies to Charles Yu’s Hulu adaptation of his own 2020 novel, “Interior Chinatown,” which employed a screenplay framework to remark on representation and race in popular culture. Disney+, Hulu’s corporate sister, will also showcase Leslye Headland’s interpretation of “Star Wars” in “The Acolyte,” in addition to “Agatha.” Marvel Studios will also be dabbling in the genre with the animated “X-Men ’97.”

These are only a few of the unaired programs from the major players. Season 2 of “Interview With the Vampire” and “Orphan Black: Echoes” on AMC are other things we’re eagerly anticipating. Speaking of second seasons, “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” is also scheduled to premiere in 2019. If nothing else, we hope that it won’t clash with “House of the Dragon” once more. In addition, there’s Ewan McGregor’s “Gentleman in Moscow” on Showtime. Speaking of star power, “Mary & George,” a new Starz series starring Julianne Moore and Nicholas Galitzine as a mother and son, has the best trailer for a historical drama we’ve seen in a long time.
