Just when things were getting back to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic-caused shutdown, Hollywood was derailed by drawn-out strikes from the WGA and SAG-AFTRA guilds. This shifted a lot of production schedules, particularly among broadcast shows that saw new (CBS’s Elsbeth) and returning programing (ABC’s Abbott Elementary) bumped to early 2024. Streamers also saw upsets, such as the final season of Netflix’s Stranger Things shifting to 2025 and, with its production not starting until spring 2024, the same might also be true for the second season of its Wednesday.

But this news is not as ominous as it sounds. Hollywood is a resilient industry and a year is a long time (especially since 2024 is a leap year). There are plans for several highly anticipated new and returning programs; some even have official premiere dates. We’ve listed some of our favorites below, including Disney+’s Kathryn Hahn-starring WandaVision spin-off, Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, and the return of Interview with the Vampire on AMC+, as well as Emmy-bait shows like HBO’s The Regime starring Kate Winslet and The Sympathizer on Max.

We’ll update this list as new titles and more details become available. Did we forget your favorite program? Sound off in the comments.

Deliver Me (Netflix)
Starring: Yasir Hassan, Olle Strand, Yusra Warsama, Ane Dahl Torp, Henrik Norlén, Ardalan Esmai
Premiere Date: 2024

A Swedish series based on the Malin Persson Giolito novel, this is less a whodunnit than a who’s-to-blame for whodunnit. It follows a community reeling after a 14-year-old commits a heinous crime — and as they all wonder what events in that child’s life allowed this to happen.

Devil May Cry (Netflix)
Starring: TBD
Premiere Date: 2024

An adult-themed animated action series based on the popular video game franchise, this story will (most likely) focus on a skilled demon hunter named Dante (as in the Italian poet who wrote Divine Comedy).

Hotel Cocaine (MGM+)
Starring: Danny Pino, Michael Chiklis, Mark Feuerstein
Premiere Date: 2024

This biographical drama focuses on the life of Roman Compte (Danny Pino), a Cuban exile and CIA operative who was also the general manager of the Hotel Mutiny, the glamorous epicenter of the late ’70s and early ’80s Miami cocaine scene. If Compte’s last name sounds familiar, it might be because his son Maurice Compte is an actour who has appeared in stars in NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Breaking Bad.

The Jinx: Part 2 (HBO)
Starring: TBD
Premiere Date: 2024

Wait. There’s more to say? Director Andrew Jarecki’s 2015 documentary miniseries The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst was true-crime catnip: A detailed exploration of a wealthy eccentric who’d been on the lam for years and maybe also had killed a bunch of people … only to have said individual confess everything on a hot mic in the finale, resulting in his arrest for first-degree murder (“Killed them all, of course,” Robert Durst famously said). But a new segment, which will chronicle what’s happened in the eight years since that series’ release, will be out in 2024.

Also, a potential complication: Durst died in January 2022.

The Joe Schmo Show (TBS)
Starring: Cat Deeley
Premiere Date: 2024

One of the first reality shows to make fun of reality shows, the original The Joe Schmo Show aired on Spike TV in the aughts and followed a group of people who came together to appear on a reality TV show. The twist? Only one of them wasn’t an actor playing a stereotype of a reality TV contestant. Now with the success of shows like Amazon Freevee’s Jury Duty, which follows a fake trial with a fake jury where everyone is in on the gag except one guy, and the reality-dating-show-that-just-won’t-die, F-Boy Island, TBS has decided to revive this program and has tapped So You Think You Can Dance’s Cat Deeley as its host.

Kite Man: Hell Yeah! (Max)
Starring: Matt Oberg, Kaley Cuoco
Premiere Date: 2024

The spin-off no one asked for but also maybe wanted? This show focuses on one of the break-outs of Max’s Harley Quinn animated series: Matt Oberg’s Kite Man, a supervillain struggling for respect from his peers thanks to his less-than-scary (or useful) super power of using kite-based weapons to commit crimes.

The Librarians: The Next Chapter
Starring: Jake Stormoen, Anand Desai-Barochia
Premiere Date: 2024

A spin-off of the TNT series that starred Rebecca Romijn and Noah Wyle and was about custodians of the world’s most powerful and dangerous supernatural artifacts, the official logline for this show is that it “centers on a Librarian from the past who time-traveled to the present and now finds himself stuck here.”

Marvel Zombies (Disney+)
Starring: Iman Vellani
Premiere Date: 2024

Growing increasingly more meta by the day, this Marvel Cinematic Universe animated series is a spin-off of an episode of the producers’ What If? animated series. That anthology program, which also airs on Disney+, posits theoretical situations involving various Marvel characters in alternate time lines. (So, in this instance, what if … zombies?).

The series will, reportedly, focus on Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel lead, Kamala Khan.

The series, which is based on the books by Matthew Quirk, stars Gabriel Basso as Peter Sutherland. An FBI agent stationed to work the night shift at the White House, Peter discovered (and then thwarted) a major terrorist conspiracy last season. This lead to a big promotion for Peter. But does it also mean more danger?

Starring: Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Sophie Skelton, Richard Rankin
Premiere Date: 2024

The second half of historical drama Outlander‘s penultimate season comes in 2024, meaning we’re getting even so closer to the final days of Caitriona Balfe’s time-traveling doctor Claire and her Scottish soldier, Sam Heughan’s Jamie. Set during the Revolutionary War, the duo must decide which side is truly an ally (and maybe they can also stay out of trouble). Meanwhile, in the more recent past of the 1980s, their daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and her family face their own dangers.

Outlander will end with its eighth season. But a prequel series, Outlander: Blood of My Blood, is already in the works.

The Penguin (Max)
Starring: Colin Farrell, Cristin Milioti, Michael Kelly
Premiere Date: 2024

This eight-episode DC Studios show is set one week after the events of Matt Reeves’ film The Batman and looks at Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot / Penguin’s (Colin Farrell) rise to power in Gotham City’s criminal underworld.

Michael Kelly also stars as Johnny Vitti, an underboss of the Falcone crime family.

Star Wars: Skeleton Crew (Disney+)
Starring: Jude Law, Ryan Keira Armstrong, Tunde Adebimpe, Kerry Condon, Jaleel White
Premiere Date: 2024

Another live-action Star Wars series without a definite release date, Skeleton Crew is a coming-of-age story that takes place during the same time period as The Mandalorian, following four lost kids trying to make their way home across the galaxy. It was co-created by Christopher Ford and Jon Watts, who worked together on Spider-Man: Homecoming before Watts went on also to direct Spider-Man: Far from Home and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Those About to Die (Peacock)
Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Dimitri Leonidas, Jojo Macari, Gabriella Pession, Iwan Rheon
Premiere Date: 2024

An epic drama about gladiators in Ancient Rome that’s based on the Daniel P. Mannix novel, this series comes with some splashy pedigree.

It also counts Roland Emmerich as an executive producer and director and is written by Band of Brothers and Falling Skies’ Robert Rodat.
