In 2023, the TV market is betting on adaptations of videogames, books and movie sagas

2023 kicks off with the premiere of 'The Last of Us,' an HBO Max adaptation of the video game with the same title on Jan. 15.

The zombie series tells the raw tale of survival and friendship in a post-apocalyptic world that turned millions of people into the living dead after being exposed to a strange virus.

'That '90s Show' (available on Netflix from Jan. 19)

That '90s Show is one new series that should evoke nostalgia with fans. The series, a sequel to That '70s Show, is set in 1995 and brings back Kitty and Red Forman, played respectively by Debra Jo Rupp and Kurwood Smith and their mythical basement. This time it will be the place where Leia Forman, Eric and Donna's daughter, decides to join a new generation of teenagers under the ever loving gaze of her grandmother and the stern character of her grandfather.

The sitcom will follow a grieving therapist (Segel) who goes against the rules and decides to tell his patients exactly what he thinks about their traumas. In this way, ignoring the ethics of his career, he will unwittingly end up provoking gigantic and very problematic changes not only in the lives of those he treats, but also in his own.

Shrinking also stars Harrison Ford in one of his first starring roles on television in addition to Christa Miller, Jessica Williams, Michael Urie, Luke Tennie and Lukita Maxwell.

'The Flash,' season 9 and finale (available on The CW from Feb. 8., arrives to Netflix between May and June)

During the CW's usual announcements of renewals and cancellations in May, the American TV network signified a major transition when virtually no series were spared. With The Flash movie finally hitting the big screen in June, a few months earlier fans will have to say goodbye to the hero on the small screen.

Grant Gustin will be stepping into the superhero's golden boots for the last time starting Feb. 8. After nine seasons on the air, this time, his character, Barry Allen / The Flash, will have to face a new team of villains that will confront not only him, but the entire Team Flash. However, his greatest challenge will come in the form of a deadly new adversary who will rise to challenge the superhero's legacy.

The series will once again feature Candice Patton as Iris West-Allen, Danielle Panabaker in the role of Caitlin Snow, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, Kayla Compton in the role of Allegra Garcia, Brandon McKnight as Chester P. Runk and Jon Cor, whose character, Mark Blaine / Chillblaine will be a regular after being a recurring character in the last two seasons.

In addition, other Arrowverse performers such as Javicia Leslie (who played Ryan Wilder / Batwoman in the superheroine series) and Nicole Maines (Nia Nal / Dreamer on Supergirl) will return for the show's farewell.

'The Mandalorian,' season 3 (available on Disney+ from March 1)

Star Wars fans will have to wait until March 1 to see Chilean actor Pedro Pascal play Mando in the third season of The Mandalorian on Disney+.

'Shadow and Bone,' season 2 (premieres on Netflix on March 16)

Shadow and Bone, the television adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s trilogy known as the Grishaverse, returns March 16 with its second season. This new season will narrate the events that take place in both Siege and Storm and Ruin and Rising, the second and third novels that conclude the main saga. It won't be the only thing we'll see on the small screen this season.

The showrunners of the series assured that some events that happen in Six of Crows will also be introduced into the plot. Viewers will get a first look at Wylan Hendriks, a bomb demolition expert who will be played by actor Jack Wolfe.

The series will continue to narrate Alina Starkov’s (Jesse Mei Li) escape. Considered a beacon of hope to some and a suspected traitor to others, she is determined to end the Shadow Fold and save Ravka from ruin. However, she must contend with General Kirigan (Ben Barnes) who returns to finish what he started. To have a fighting chance against him, Alina and Mal (Archie Renaux) will team up with new allies and begin a journey across the continent to find two mythical creatures that amplify their powers. Meanwhile, in Ketterdam, the Ravens must form new alliances while facing old enemies and even older feuds that jeopardize not only their place in the Barrel, but their very lives.

'Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story' (Netflix, scheduled to premiere during the first quarter)

Lady Whistledown and the small screen's favorite aristocratic family will make a double return during 2023. First, with the third season of Bridgerton centered on Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington, played respectively by Luke Newton and Nicola Coughlan, which is expected to arrive on Netflix in spring 2023.

But the new spinoff centered on Queen Charlotte, played in the original show by Golda Rosheuvel, has also captured the attention of fans. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story will recount the monarch's youth and her love story with King George III (played by Corey Mylchreest). The young version of Queen Charlotte will be played by India Amarteifio

There will be no shortage of beloved characters from the original series such as Lady Danbury and Violet Bridgerton who, as in The Bridgertons, will be played, respectively, by Adjoa Andoh and Ruth Gemmell. The young versions of both characters will be played by Arsema Thomas and Connie Jenkins-Greig.

'Riverdale,' season 7 and finale (The CW, scheduled for spring. Available on Netflix in fall)

Riverdale is another The CW series that will say goodbye in 2023. Still without a premiere date, the show starring K.J. Apa, Camila Mendes, Lily Reinhart, Cole Sprouse and Madeleine Petsch will travel back to the 1950s and will once again take place in the neighboring town of Greendale (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina).

After what happened at the end of the sixth season, Archie, Veronica, Betty, Jughead, Cheryl and the rest of the crew must discover how they ended up traveling 70 years into the past and how to return to 2023.

'Secret Invasion' (available on Disney Plus in spring)

Marvel had a score to settle with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). The director of SHIELD appeared in virtually every series and film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but his origin story was never known. It is true that hints were given in Captain Marvel or in the post-credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home. In the miniseries Secret Invasion, the arrival of the Skrulls to Earth is finally explored.

The cast is completed by Ben Mendelsohn as Talos; Cobie Smulders in the role of Maria Hill; Kingsley Ben-Adir as Gravik; Emilia Clarke will be Abigail Brand; Olivia Colman will play Sonya Falsworth; Martin Freeman will reprise his role as Everett K. Ross and Don Cheadle will return as James 'Rhodey' Rhodes.

The second season of 'Loki' (Disney Plus, scheduled for summer)

The series about Thor's brother, Loki, was a hit when it landed on Disney Plus in 2021. That year, fans fell even more in love with the god of deception and his variant, Sylvie, who we will also see in the second season that the streaming platform plans to launch during the summer of 2023.

In the new season, the story will continue where the first season of the fiction starring Tom Hiddleston ended. That is, with Loki in an alternate timeline brought about by Sylvie's (Sophia Di Martino) actions in the previous episodes. In this alternate reality, neither Mobius (Owen Wilson) nor any of the temp agents (AVT) meets Loki who, astonished, discovers that the so-called He Who Remains (the villain from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors) is out of the shadows and now the visible head of the AVT.

'The Witcher,' season 3 (coming to Netflix in summer)

Henry Cavill will say goodbye to the The Witcher after the end of the third season, and Liam Hemsworth will replace him and play Gerald of Rivia in the fourth installment of the Netflix series.

The third season of 'The witcher' will be the last in which Henry Cavill will play Gerald of Rivia (Netflix).

Considered one of the most important and best fantasy series of recent years, the new episodes will be the last in which we will see Cavill playing the show's main character. We will see Ciri (Freya Allan) teach Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) to use her newly acquired magical powers in the protected fortress of Aretuza. However, the refuge will not be spared from dark forces and will soon be threatened by political corruption, dark magic and treachery.

'Dune: The Sisterhood' (available on HBO Max on Nov. 3)

Dune: Part 2 hits the big screen on Nov. 3. That same day, HBO Max will premiere the series Dune: The Sisterhood, which takes place 10,000 years before Paul Atreides began his adventure. It will focus on telling the story of the Bene Gessetit, a community of women who use spice to expand their minds and influence personalities all over the galaxy.

'Dune: the sisterhood' will be set 10,000 years before 'Dune: part 2', a film that will hit the big screen on the same day (HBO Max).

The show will star Emily Watson and Shirley Henderson as sisters Valya and Tula Harkonnen. The cast is rounded out by Indira Varma as Empress Natalya, Sarah-Sofie Boussnina as Princess Ynez, Travis Fimmel as Desmond Hart, Mark Strong as Emperor Javicco Corrino and Jade Anouka as Sister Theodosia.

'Ahsoka' (available on Disney Plus later this year)

The story of one of the most beloved Star Wars characters will arrive in late 2023 on Disney Plus. The ex-jedi Ahsoka, played by Rosario Dawson, will be the main character of the new show on the streaming platform. For the moment, little is known about the main plot of the series, simply that it will take place after what happened in The Mandalorian.

Rosario Dawson will play the ex-jedi 'Ahsoka' in the Disney Plus fiction (Disney Plus).

There is more luck with the cast of the series, which has already been announced. Rosario Dawson will be joined by Hayden Christensen, who will reprise the role of Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader; Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren and Eman Esfandi as Ezra Bridger. Ivanna Sakhno and Mary Elizabeth Winstead will also be cast in undisclosed roles and Ray Stevenson is cast as a villainous admiral.

'The Boys,' season 4 (Amazon Prime Video, end of the year)

One of Amazon Prime's most popular projects returns to the small screen with the fourth season of The Boys, the series that proves superheroes aren't all they're cracked up to be.

The show will resume the action with an even more radicalized Patriot who finds himself with the unexpected support of the public after his bloody confrontation with Maeve. In the meantime, Victoria Neuman has achieved her goal of continuing her rise in U.S. politics and is just one step away from achieving a power that, under no circumstances, should be held by someone with the ability to exploit human minds.

Season 2 of 'Squid Game' (Netflix, due later this year)

The Korean Squid Game was an unexpected success for Netflix when it premiered the series in 2021. Its plot and its peculiar aesthetics, especially the trademark green tracksuits, became a worldwide trend and even won some unexpected awards.

With no confirmed premiere date, Netflix is expected to release the second season of 'The Squid Game' in late 2023 (Netflix).

The plot, as revealed by the lead actor in an interview with GQ, will offer a darker and, therefore, unknown side of Seong Gi-hu (Lee Jung-jae). During the first season, he was shown as an honest and nice person despite all the problems that surrounded him. After participating in the Squid Game, he was changed forever and will seek revenge.

'The Morning Show,' season 3 (Apple TV +, sometime in 2023)

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon could be saying goodbye to Alex and Bradley, the leading ladies they play in The Morning Show in 2023. The Emmy-winning show tells the life story of the two hosts of one of the most watched morning shows on American television. It has been on the air for two seasons on Apple TV+ and the third season may be the last.

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon could play, for the last time, Alex and Bradley on 'The morning show' (Apple TV+).

With no plot yet confirmed at the moment, it is expected that the story will jump forward in time (as it happened during the second season where they narrated everything that happened during the coronavirus pandemic) and, this time, it will be set just when things seemed to be getting back to normal, likely between 2022 and 2023 itself, Witherspoon hinted to ET recently.

'Only Murders in the Building,' season 3 (Hulu and Star, sometime in 2023)

Paul Rudd (Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania) appeared in the final episode of the second season of Only Murders in the Building, and everything indicated that he would be part of the cast during its third installment, which was later confirmed.

Martin Short, Steve Martin and Selena Gomez will return as Oliver, Charles and Mabel in the third season of 'Only Murders in the Building' (Hulu).

His character, Ben Glenroy, whom Oliver (Martin Short) signed for his play, collapsed on stage shortly after arguing with Charles (Steve Martin). This is the moment when the third season will begin. Selena Gomez will reprise her role as Mabel.

'Red Queen' / 'Reina Roja' (Amazon Prime Video, sometime in 2023)

One of the most popular Spanish series is Red Queen (Reina Roja). Amazon Prime Video's show will be an adaptation to the small screen of Juan Gómez-Jurado's novels and will star Vicky Luengo.

Vicky Luengo will give life on the small screen to Antonia, the main character of the novel by Juan Gómez-Jurado, 'Red Queen' / 'Reina Roja' (Prime Video).

The main plot will revolve around Antonia (Luengo), the smartest person on Earth who became the Red Queen (Reina Roja) of a police project while, at the same time, solving the most sinister crimes. Years after Antonia decided to disappear, a terrible murder will lead her to put her detective skills back to work and solve the crime.
