10 TV Shows To Premiere This Year

From Peacemaker to The Afterparty to Severance to Our Flag Means Death to Paper Girls to House of the Dragon to Andor, 2022 was a great year for new TV shows. But 2023 is shaping up to be just as great, if not an even greater year for new TV shows. HBO, AMC, CBS, Disney+, Marvel, and Lucasfilm all have tantalizing TV projects on the horizon.

These networks, streaming services, and production companies won’t allow TV audiences to leave their homes in 2023 with such exciting shows as Ahsoka, Secret Invasion, The Last of Us, and The Walking Dead: Dead City hitting the airwaves next year.

True Lies

CBS has picked up a TV adaptation of True Lies for a full season that will premiere this year. One of James Cameron’s most underrated movies, True Lies stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a secret agent who struggles to balance his dangerous duties as a spy with his responsibilities as a suburban husband and father.

This premise is tailor-made for an action comedy TV series, and a small-screen adaptation of the movie has been in development hell for years. Anthony Hemingway directed the pilot episode for the CBS show, set to air in 2023.


The Mandalorian’s live-action incarnation of Ahsoka Tano is getting her own spin-off series in 2023. Not only is Rosario Dawson reprising her role as the title character in Ahsoka; Hayden Christensen is back as her former master Anakin Skywalker.

Spearheaded by Dave Filoni, who co-created the character with George Lucas himself, Ahsoka will also feature Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren and Eman Esfandi as Ezra Bridger.

The Walking Dead: Dead City

AMC has given the greenlight to yet another Walking Dead spin-off, The Walking Dead: Dead City, which will pick up after the flagship series ends this year. Originally titled Isle of the Dead, the Manhattan-set series will bring back Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan and Lauren Cohan as Maggie.

Eli Jorné will serve as the showrunner for the six-episode series, which is scheduled to premiere in April 2023. As The Walking Dead comes to an end, it seems that zombies will be on the small screen a little longer.


In mid-2023, Marvel Studios will release Echo, a spin-off from Hawkeye, on Disney+. Alaqua Cox is set to reprise her role as Maya Lopez, who will return to her hometown to reconnect with her family and make peace with her past. Echo is one of the MCU’s most sympathetic villains, primed to become the star of her own story.

Marion Dayre has created the series and will serve as head writer. Perhaps the most exciting part of the spin-off is that Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio will reprise their roles as Daredevil and the Kingpin, respectively.

American Born Chinese

The stars of Everything Everywhere All at Once – Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Stephanie Hsu – are all reuniting for American Born Chinese, an action comedy series adapted from Gene Luen Yang’s graphic novel of the same name. The story revolves around high schoolers getting swept up in a battle between the deities of Chinese mythology.

Destin Daniel Cretton and Lucy Liu are confirmed to direct episodes of the series. There’s no official release date set for American Born Chinese as of yet, but it’s due to premiere on Disney+ in 2023.

Agatha: Coven Of Chaos

Agatha Harkness, the breakout star of WandaVision, is getting her own spin-off next year. Agatha: Coven of Chaos is described as a dark comedy. Kathryn Hahn is set to reprise her role as Agatha and WandaVision creator Jac Schaeffer is returning as a writer and executive producer.

Set to premiere on Disney+ in the release window of late 2023 (probably around Halloween), Coven of Chaos could be one of the MCU’s funniest and most entertaining entries in Phase Five.

Star Wars: Skeleton Crew

Jon Watts and Christopher Ford have created an original series set in the Star Wars universe. Described as an Amblin-style coming-of-age story set in a galaxy far, far away, Skeleton Crew revolves around a group of kids getting lost in space and trying to find their way home.

Jude Law will play the lead role in the series, which was officially announced earlier this year at Star Wars Celebration.

Time Bandits

Jemaine Clement, Iain Morris, and Taika Waititi are working on a TV adaptation of Terry Gilliam’s fantasy adventure cult classic Time Bandits for Apple TV+. Like the movie, the show will revolve around a ragtag band of outlaws who embark on a daring journey through time and space.

Lisa Kudrow is headlining the cast, with Charlyne Yi and Rachel House in supporting roles. Plus, Gilliam himself is attached to the series as an executive producer.

The Last Of Us

Based on the bestselling video game of the same name, The Last of Us is set to premiere its first season on HBO in 2023. The series, like the game it’s based on, will see a smuggler named Joel tasked with getting teenage Ellie across a post-apocalyptic America.

Joel will be played by Pedro Pascal, better known as the Mandalorian, and Ellie will be played by Bella Ramsey. The Naughty Dog hit has been adapted for the small screen by Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin.

Secret Invasion

Marvel’s most exciting upcoming streaming series is Secret Invasion. It could have massive ramifications for the wider universe. Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Cobie Smulders, Martin Freeman, and Don Cheadle are all reprising their MCU roles alongside newcomers Olivia Colman and Emilia Clarke.

Like the seminal comic book it takes its title from, Secret Invasion will revolve around a Skrull invasion of Earth, and could reveal that some major players in the MCU are really aliens in disguise.
