The 70 Most Anticipated TV Shows & Mini-Series Of 2024 - Page 8 of 8

Honorable Mention (via streaming service, network, or platform)
HBO and MAX have a ton of returning shows, including “Curb Your Enthusiasm” season 12, “Sex Lives Of College Girls” season three, and “My Brilliant Friend” season four. Max also has the political journalism mentoring drama, “The Girls On The Bus,” starring  Melissa Benoist and Carla Gugino, and “Duster,” a ‘70s crime drama starring Josh Holloway as produced by J.J. Abrams.

Netflix should give us additional things like “The Umbrella Academy” season four, “Sweet Tooth” season three, “Sandman” season two, and “Boy Swallows Universe,” an adaptation of an acclaimed Australian book adaptation starring Travis Fimmel. Other upcoming Netflix shows include “Toxic Town” created by Jack Thorne, starring Jodie Whittaker; Shonda Rhimes new White-House set screwball whodunit starring “Orange Is the New Black” breakout Uzo Aduba, Andre Braugher, Ken Marino, Jason Lee, Edwina Findley and more; “The Vince Staples Show,” which will be loosely based on the 29-year-old rapper’s life;  Kathleen Jordan‘s period soap drama “The Decameron” with Jenji Kohan executive producing should arrive this year; Benedict Cumberbatch will star in “Eric” from “Shame” writer Abi Morgan which would normally be on our list, but it’s very unclear if it’ll arrive this year; Netflix’s conspiracy theory “Madness” starring Colman Domingo and John Ortiz sounds intriguing. Created by “The End Of The F*cking World” world producers, “Baby Reindeer” is being tipped as a hotly-anticipated U.K. comedy/drama, and Travis Fimmel stars in “Boy Swallows Universe,” which arrives in January.

Showtime has been absorbed by Paramount+ and is basically going away eventually, but we’re pretty sure “Super Pumped” season two, Brian Koppelman and David Levien’s new series centered around Facebook didn’t even shoot, so it’s likely not until 2025. Hulu’s “The Plot” from Disney’s Onyx Collective stars Maherhala Ali in a literary theft drama, but it looks like it didn’t shoot this year as planned. And, of course, one of their flagship shows, “Only Murders In The Building,” could return. Peacock has “Apples Never Fall” starring Annette Bening, Sam Neill, Alison Brie, and Jake Lacy, and “Those About To Die,” a Roland Emmerich gladiator drama with  Anthony Hopkins, among many others, including “Parish” with Giancarlo Esposito.

Apple TV+ will likely give us things like “Pachinko” season two, “Slow Horses” season four, and “Bad Sisters” season two, all of which are highly anticipated, but we’ve tried to focus on newer shows. Other shows that could return on the streamer include “Mythic Quest” season four and “Shrinking” season two with Harrison Ford and Jason Segel.  Silo” season two is another we’re greatly anticipating, but it’s likely a 2025 title at this point. Other series of interest include, “Criminal Record,” a new crime thriller starring Academy Award winner Peter Capaldi and Cush Jumbo; Michael Douglas stars as Benjamin Franklin in “Franklin”;  the A24-produced dark comedy “Sunny” starring Rashida Jones.

Over at Amazon, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” husband-and-wife show creators Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino have announced their new streaming series from Prime Video, the ballet drama “Étoile,” but thanks to the strikes, it’s probably 2025. Starz‘s “Mary & George” starring Julianne Moore looks intriguing too.
