Check out some of our picks for the most highly anticipated shows premiering in 2023 below.
2023: Most Anticipated Original Shows & Adaptations
Marvel’s Secret Invasion (Disney+)
This Marvel series will see Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) try to save the planet from an invasion of Skrulls (the shape-shifting aliens from Captain Marvel). It’s supposed to mark a new turn in the Marvel genre, as the show looks to be more of a dramatic thriller. Cobie Smulders and Ben Mendelsohn also reprise their roles, along with characters played by Olivia Colman, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Emilia Clarke. Marvel’s Secret Invasion will hit Disney+ in Spring 2023.
The Last of Us (HBO Max)
HBO Max’s The Last of Us adapts the apocalyptic action-adventure video game of the same name.

The Last of Us premieres on HBO Max January 15.
Daisy Jones & The Six (Prime Video)
Daisy Jones & The Six adapts Taylor Jenkins Reid’s bestselling novel. The story follows the rise of the titular (imaginary) rock band in the ’70s, documentary-style. The series stars Riley Keough, Sam Claflin, Camila Morrone, Will Harrison, Suki Waterhouse, and more. Daisy Jones & The Six premieres on Prime Video March 3.

Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches premieres on AMC and AMC+ January 8.
