Perhaps even more than movies, television found itself impacted by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes in 2023, pushing multiple projects out of anticipated (or even announced) schedules and into something far more vague. While that meant the end of last year was, admittedly, a little underwhelming when it came to the small screen, it does mean that there’s a lot waiting for audiences in 2024.
Whether it’s all-new shows like Apple TV+’s Masters of the Air or any of the new live-action Star Wars series (The Acolyte! Skeleton Crew!), adaptations of existing material (Prime Video’s upcoming Fallout series, or their animated Batman: Caped Crusader), or returning favorites like Star Trek: Discovery and The Bear, there’s a plethora of good stuff on the horizon across the next 12 months — including some final seasons of favorite shows like HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm and FX’s What We Do In The Shadows, or Disney+’s Star Wars: The Bad Batch. How can we handle it?
Of course, the real question is: what are you most excited to watch on the small screen in 2024? We’ve offered up no less than 19 possibilities below, with a 20th allowing you to name something that’s not on the list in the comments. (Although some of those shows might be absent because we’re not sure if they’re definitely going to debut this year: Severance Season 2, we’re looking at you. But please hurry up if you can see this; we miss you.) Take a look at the list and choose your warrior for the next 12 months. How else are we going to know what you’re thrilled to check out?
