Even though 2022 was an outstanding year for shows, 2023 might have last year beat.

Sure, 2022 brought us "Game of Thrones" spinoff "House of Dragons," "Lord of the Rings" spinoff "The Rings of Power," "Addams Family" spinoff "Wednesday" and even a second season of "White Lotus."

But the new year brings new and exciting shows, including the on-screen debut of Blackpink's Jennie Kim, a Scooby-Doo spinoff about the brains behind Mystery Inc. and a post-apocalyptic show based on a video game that will have you rethinking what it really means to live in a post-pandemic world.

With all the exciting new shows coming in 2023, who has time for New Year’s resolutions? Here are the shows we’re most looking forward to seeing this year:


Velma Dinkley, Mystery Inc.’s most underrated member, is finally getting her own show. The new “Scooby-Doo” spinoff explores Velma’s origin story, and her adventures navigating high school, friendships and a serial killer plaguing her town. And just like her voice actor Mindy Kaling, who is also an executive producer on the show, Velma will be portrayed for the first time as a character of South Asian descent.

Inspired by a popular 2013 video game, “The Last of Us” follows father-daughter pair (played by “Game of Thrones” alumni Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey) doing what it takes to survive a dystopian universe amid grief, PTSD and an endless search for companionship. If we thought we were in a post-pandemic world now, just wait to see what show creators Craig Mazin, the mastermind behind “Chernobyl,” and Neil Druckmann, the writer and creative director of the original game, have in store.
