2023 TV Shows

However, I can share some general 2023 TV Shows and popular series that were gaining traction around the time of my knowledge cutoff. Please note that the popularity of series can change quickly, so this information may not reflect the current trends

The Walking Dead: Dead City (June 18)

The Walking Dead: Dead City is a six-part miniseries that is the first spin-off series to take place after the main show. Lauren Cohan (The Vampire Diaries) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen) return as Maggie, the badass widow, and Negan, the villain you love to hate. They have to work together to infiltrate a zombie-infested Manhattan to search for Maggie’s missing son. Fans of the original series will know this alliance is tenuous at best, but that dynamic is the exact type of powder keg that audiences can’t wait to go off. The series will also feature an all-new faction of enemies that promise to give our main duo the fight of their lives.

Secret Invasion, Disney+ (June 21)

With everything that is going on within the MCU and with so many characters to balance, sometimes it’s easy to forget just how strange Nick Fury’s story has been in recent years. Samuel L. Jackson’s Fury hasn’t been as omnipresent in this series these days, as he’s had a pair of Skrulls impersonating him on earth, as Fury flies around space in a Skrull ship. But also, after 15 years in the MCU, it’s about damn time Nick Fury gets his own story.

The first trailer for Secret Invasion has a much darker tone than we’re used to with the MCU Disney+ shows, almost more akin to Captain America: The Winter Soldier (the best MCU film, btw). Secret Invasion will be one of the first TV projects in Phase Five, and this latest phase looks to be off to a good start, as Mr. Robot writer Kyle Bradstreet is the show’s creator, while the cast will also feature Ben MendelsohnCobie SmuldersKingsley Ben-AdirEmilia ClarkeMartin FreemanDon Cheadle, and Olivia Colman. It’s taken a while for Fury to be in the spotlight, but Secret Invasion certainly looks like it was worth the wait. — Ross Bonaime

The Bear Season 2

The Bear Season 2

Everyone’s favorite kitchen crew is back, and this season, it’s time for a facelift. Carmy Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), along with his trusted sous chef Sydney Adamu (Ayo Edebiri), start stripping the old sandwich shop down to its bones to update it into Chicago’s next destination restaurant, but their big ambitions are neither cheap nor easy, so everyone has to pitch in. The first season of The Bear was about grit and adjusting to a new normal while taking care of yourself, but the second season shifts its focus outward towards hospitality and caring for others, which feels like a natural next step since the restaurant and its crew are on parallel journeys of improvement.

The Witcher Season 3 (June 28)

As the final season to feature Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) as Geralt of Rivia, Season 3 of The Witcher is going to be quite bittersweet. Audiences have enjoyed watching Cavill grow into the role; plus, the lone wolf and cub relationship that has developed between Geralt and his young ward Ciri, brought to life by the talented Freya Allan (Gunpowder Milkshake), has been absolutely charming. However, it’s that very relationship that’s being threatened this season, as everyone from mages to monsters wants to get their hands on Ciri and the power she possesses, forcing Geralt to use everything at his disposal to protect her — even if it costs him his life. Expect the magic and mayhem to be through the roof, and toss a coin to your Witcher as a final swan song to Cavill.
