The Most Anticipated TV Shows of 2024 – The Hollywood Reporter

Every broadcaster and streaming platform is focused on the same thing heading into 2024: trying to get back up and running after a year in which Hollywood’s historic double strikes shut down production for months.

Amid the writer and cast strikes, streamers and networks are trying to solidify their programming pipelines as several scripted comedies and dramas have been hampered by the work stoppage. HBO, for example, quickly announced that the third season of euphoria And The White Lotus as well as the second episode of The last of us will now arrive in 2025. Other platforms like Amazon have dropped the program because the delayed production is now affecting their marketing plans for 2025, when the streamer already has big spending planned.

Against this background, The Hollywood Reporter surveyed the TV landscape to find out which new scripted (and US-produced) comedies and dramas could actually debut next year. Below is a look at each of the major platforms and what to expect as the calendar heads into 2024. Remember, as in the past, there are no guarantees, as global pandemics and labor disputes have delayed even the largest of these shows. (Premiere dates are provided when available.
