Mexican-American teenager Jaime Reyes gains super powers when a mysterious scarab binds to his spine and provides him with a powerful suit of blue alien armor.
The Biggest Shows Coming Out in 2023
Our Flag Means Death Season 2
We know that the show’s second season of filming just wrapped, so we’re pretty sure we can expect more of the queer pirate romantic comedy. We’re ready.
Marvel’s Ironheart Season 1
After her introduction in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Riri Williams is back to show off more of her tech skills in her own feature series on Disney+.
Agatha: Coven of Chaos
Marvel has plenty for fans to get excited about in the upcoming year, including a follow-up with Agatha Harkness after all her dark-magic trouble in Wandavision.
Loki Season 2
Now that Loki and Sylvie have basically broken the time stream, what will our gods of chaos get up to now? There’s a whole messed-up multiverse out there and these two are bound to be smack dab in the middle of it.
It feels like we’ve been waiting since the beginning of time for this series to come out, and if the Force is strong, we’ll finally get it this year.
History of the World Pt II
Speaking of things we’ve been waiting a lifetime for, History of the World Pt II has always been a running joke – the movie that would never actually exist. And we were kinda right! Because it’s going to be a series. Mel Brooks is back, along with Nick Kroll, Wanda Sykes, and more.
Mindy Kaling brings the Scooby Doo gang’s most lovable geek to HBO Max with a new adult-centric Velma series. HBO has done really well with Warner Brothers property cartoons for grown-up kids in the last few years (looking at you, Harley Quinn), so hopes are high for this nostalgia-fueled queer mystery series.
Ted Lasso Season 3
Last but not least, our spirits could all use a good hug, and Ted Lasso is here to oblige.
