Reports are that there will be fewer new TV shows to premiere in 2024 than there were in 2023, but there’s still a lot of TV out there! Here we look at those things that have pinged our radar for the upcoming TV season, be they completely new series or new seasons of ongoing series. This list isn’t comprehensive! Feel free to take issue with what we’ve left off the list in the comments, and to use that space to recommend series that may have escaped our notice.
We’ll try to update this list of Spring 2024 premieres as more release dates are announced.
February 14: The New Look, Apple TV+
The New Look is created by Todd A. Kessler and has a star-studded cast, featuring the likes of Ben Mendelsohn, Juliette Binoche, Maisie Williams, and John Malkovich. Honestly, it’s the cast list more than anything that makes me excited for this one, though Kessler has also done some standout work in the past behind the scenes.
The series focuses on Christian Dior in Paris after World War II, but I expect it will be compelling regardless of whether you’re immersed in the world of fashion, which is itself very interesting!
February 14: Resident Alien Season 3, SYFY
Resident Alien returns for its third season on SYFY on February 14. The series, created by Chris Sheridan, stars Alan Tudyk.
February 15: Ghosts Season 3, CBS
The American version of Ghosts returns for a third season on CBS on February 15.
February 21: Constellation, Apple TV+
Apple TV+ continues to expand its catalogue of science fiction with Constellation, a show about an astronaut who has returned to Earth to find that parts of her life seem to be missing. The series stars Noomi Rapace, along with Jonathan Banks and James D’Arcy (among others).
February 22: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Netflix
Netflix’s live-action version of Avatar: The Last Airbender is coming to our screens this February, and if you’re on social media, you’ve probably already seen some discourse about it. Will it be good? I suppose you’ll have to watch to find out.
February 27: Shōgun, FX
Based on the novel of the same name by James Clavell, Shōgun is set in 16th-century Japan and promises to be epic.
February 29: Elsbeth, CBS
The Good Wife-iverse continues with the new spinoff series Elsbeth, featuring Carrie Preston in the title role.
March 3: The Regime, HBO
Created by Will Tracy and starring Kate Winslet, The Regime is billed as a political satire. I really have little idea what to expect from this one, but it looks intriguing, and the HBO name still means something.
March 14: Apples Never Fall, Peacock
Based on Liane Moriarty’s novel, Apples Never Fall stars Sam Neill and Annette Bening as former tennis coaches who’ve sold their successful tennis academy. I’m sure everything will go well for them.
March 15: Manhunt, Apple TV+
Based on James L. Swanson’s book Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln’s Killer, Manhunt is set to focus on the search for John Wilkes Booth in the aftermath of Lincoln’s assassination.
March 20: Palm Royale, Apple TV+
Kristen Wiig! Allison Janney!! Laura Dern!!! Carol Burnett!!!!
Palm Royale is about a woman working to attain status in Palm Beach high society. But, again, that cast!
March 21: 3 Body Problem, Netflix
Created by David Benioff, D. B. Weiss, and Alexander Woo based on the novel series of the same name by Liu Cixin, people have been looking forward to 3 Body Problem for some time. It comes to Netflix on March 21 and should not be confused with Three-Body, a Chinese adaptation of the same source material released in 2023.
March 28: We Were the Lucky Ones, Hulu
Based on the novel of the same name by Georgia Hunter, We Were the Lucky Ones focuses on a Polish Jewish family torn apart by World War II.
March 31: Parish, AMC
Parish is a crime drama based on the BBC One series The Driver. Giancarlo Esposito stars in the title role.
April 5: Sugar, Apple TV+
Starring Collin Farrell, Sugar is billed as “genre-bending.” With elements of sci-fi and noir purported to be in the mix for this drama, you can color me intrigued to check it out in April.
April 12: Franklin, Apple TV+
Based on Stacy Schiff’s book A Great Improvisation: Franklin, France, and the Birth of America, this one’s set to star Michael Douglas as Benjamin Franklin.
April 12: Fallout, Prime Video
Fallout is set to be the latest big-name videogame adaptation to hit our screens, and if the connection to the game doesn’t get you excited, the cast list should. The series is set to feature Ella Purnell, Walton Goggins, and Kyle MacLachlan, among others, and I’m looking forward to checking it out in April.
April 17: Under the Bridge, Hulu
Under the Bridge is a true crime drama based upon the book of the same name by Rebecca Godfrey.
May 8: Dark Matter, Apple TV+
If you’re a fan of the series of the same name that ran on SYFY from 2015-2017, I regret to inform you that this is not a reboot of that property. Rather, Apple TV+’s Dark Matter is based on Blake Crouch’s 2016 novel, which is also called Dark Matter. Crouch is credited as the creator of this show, about a physicist who is warped into an alternate version of his life. It’s set to star Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Connelly, Alice Braga, Jimmi Simpson, and others.
May 8: Reginald the Vampire Season 2, SYFY
Check out our coverage of Season 1 of Reginald the Vampire in preparation for Season 2.
May 12: Interview with the Vampire Season 2, AMC
AMC’s Interview with the Vampire is back for Season 2 on May 12.
June 2024: The Bear Season 3, FX on Hulu
While we don’t have a precise release date as of yet, it looks like we can look forward to a new season of The Bear sometime in June. Hurray!
