There’s always something exciting about ending one year, and turning the page into another, but the transition to 2023 to 2024 is shaping up to be one of our most anticipated! Obviously, we love television and entertainment here; and 2024 is shaping up to be one of the best years yet for great content. There are so many amazing shows and series releasing that we have on our radar – from new seasons to full series reboots! That’s why we wanted to take a minute to count down our 7 Most Anticipated TV Shows of 2024!
#7 – Griselda
Sofia Vergara as a world-famous drug cartel boss? Say no more – we’re in. This Netflix show features one of the industry’s most popular actors in the leading role of Griselda Blanco, a Colombian drug lord in 1970’s Miami, Florida. Based on true events, the series will follow her rise to power after illegally immigrating to the United States and setting up one of the world’s most powerful drug trades. Once in Miami, her reign of terror begins – with drive-by killings being the most-used tactic. Miami is thrown into turmoil, and the local police and DEA are forced into action against the cartel. Many key players from the Narcos series have moved their talents to Griselda, so we are really expecting a high-quality series that keeps us on the edge of our seat.
#6 – Dune: The Prophecy
Since the first movie of the Dune trilogy released in 2021, we’ve been enthralled by the spice-based science-fiction world of Dune, and finally we’re getting more. While we still have to wait longer for the second film, Dune: The Prophecy serves as a prequel to the first film, and will serve up more information about the mysterious Bene Gesserit. Available on Max, the series will dive into the inner workings of the sisterhood, as they punish their minds and bodies to achieve relative superhuman status. Max has been on a hot streak with some great series, so we imagine Dune: The Prophecy will be exceptional, and shed some light on a franchise people can’t get enough of.
#5 – Creature Commandos
James Gunn has officially left the Marvel Cinematic Universe to helm the ship for DC, and we couldn’t be more excited. After masterminding the lovable loser Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, as well as DC’s surprise Peacemaker series, Creature Commandos will fight right in! The animated series focuses on a team of mutants assembled and managed by Amanda Waller. Conceptually similar to the Suicide Squad, the Creature Commandos are an unlikely combination of supernatural beasts, killer robots, mythical villains, and more – tasked with impossible black ops missions. It’s sure to have Gunn’s wild and humorous twists, and we couldn’t be more excited!
#4 – Daredevil: Born Again
The original Daredevil series was one of the first shows to really launch the superhero genre to the forefront of entertainment, and we couldn’t be more excited to see Matt Murdock’s glorious return on Disney+! In the series reboot, everyone’s favorite blind lawyer/part-time-vigilante Daredevil, is forced to team up with his arch nemesis Kingpin in order to help restore order to New York City. Jon Bernthal is also making his return as anti-hero, The Punisher. With MCU’s Phase Five really splitting between film and television, we couldn’t be more excited to see where Daredevil: Born Again takes us!
#3 – 3 Body Problem
Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss teaming up once again for their return debut! Based on a book by Chinese author Liu Cixin, the series revolves around an astrophysicist in 1960’s China, who has been forced into government conscription after the Cultural Revolution. When she receives a transmission from a different planet, the world changes forever; as humanity further splinters and divides from their own thoughts about the alien “problem.” It’s a haunting tale that is sure to spark debate and thought-provoking conversation upon its release, and we are ready to experience the ride!
#2 – Avatar: The Last Airbender
The beloved animated classic is finally getting a live-action remake, and fans couldn’t be more excited! When two Water Tribe children accidentally awaken Aang, the last Airbender and current Avatar, he’s immediately set on a path with destiny. The Fire Nation is slowly tearing the world apart and it’s the Avatar’s duty to use his master of the four elements – earth, water, fire, and air, to bring peace. Unfortunately for Aang, because he was frozen after an accident, he’s only mastered air-bending, so he must quickly learn the other elements before the Fire Nation catches up with him!
#1 – Masters of the Air
Based on the book “Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany” by Donald L Miller, this Apple TV+ series follows the heroic actions of the 100th Bomb Group of the United States Air Force during World War Two. The group quickly became known as “the Bloody Hundredth” because of its deadly reputation of suffering heavy losses. Masters of the Air is being executively produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, and will serve as a companion show to Band of Brothers, one of the most beloved mini-series of all time. The show will also feature some fantastic actors including Austin Butler and Barry Keoghan. In a year that will feature a number of amazing series debuts and returns, Master of the Air soars high above them all!
