As people tackle their New Year's resolutions for 2023, most probably won't be thinking to themselves: “I’m going to watch more television this year.” However, that might have to become a priority, because there are a lot of good selections coming our way.

From the return of beloved series like Succession and Yellowjackets, to exciting new adaptations like The Last Thing He Told Me, these are the 10 titles, in alphabetical order, that we can't wait to see in 2023.

The Top 10 Shows of 2022, According to PureWow’s Editors

1. All American (Season 5 Part 2)

Inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger, this CW drama follows an L.A.-based teen who gets recruited to play football at a Beverly Hills high school, and who must suddenly balance two very different worlds. The fifth season of the sports drama premiered back in October, and if the show follows its typical format, then the second half should start airing in February. We'll be counting down the days.

Release date: TBD

2. And Just Like That... (Season 2)

This Sex and the City revival series premiered in December 2021 and brought *loads* of surprises, with a major time jump, new characters and a shocking death in the first episode. Suffice it to say: we were hooked. And while AJLT... was originally billed as a miniseries, the show got renewed for a second season, which began filming back in October. Since a release date hasn't been announced yet, we're just left to wonder what’s in store for our favorite Manhattanites.

Release date: TBD

3. Heartstopper (Season 2)

This heartwarming Netflix teen romance was one of our favorite shows of 2022, and luckily, it's already been renewed for a second (and a third) season. Earlier this month, filming wrapped on the second installment, which means we can likely expect new episodes in 2023. Until then, we'll just keep rewatching all those feel-good scenes between the lovable Charlie Spring and the sweet Nick Nelson. #Narlie4ever.

Release date: TBD

4. The Idol (Season 1)

HBO's latest original series comes from the “sick and twisted minds” (their words) of Sam Levinson (the creator of Euphoria) and global pop superstar The Weeknd. In this drama series, an aspiring pop singer (played by Lily-Rose Depp) must reshape her image, so she turns to a “guru”/cult leader (played by The Weeknd) for help. The series also boasts cameos from Schitt's Creek star Dan Levy and singer Troye Sivan. Consider us intrigued.

Release date: TBD

5. The Last Thing He Told Me (Miniseries)

Laura Dave's 2021 mystery novel The Last Thing He Told Me was so gripping that it became an instant bestseller and was immediately picked up by Reese Witherspoon's production company, Hello Sunshine, as an Apple TV+ miniseries. This adaptation, about a woman searching for her lost husband with the help of her stepdaughter, will star Jennifer Garner, Angourie Rice, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Aisha Tyler and more. The series reportedly wrapped filming this past summer, so fingers crossed that we get to watch this thriller sooner rather than later.

Release date: TBD

6. Lupin (Part 3)

Omar Sy stars in this French thriller series, about a skilled thief who vows to get revenge on the wealthy family that caused the death of this father. So far, two parts of the series have been released, with 5 episodes that came out in January 2021 and 5 more which premiered in June of that same year. Now, we're finally getting a part three, which was teased by Netflix with a new video in September, where the streaming service said the third installment was “coming soon.” It can't get here fast enough.

Release date: TBD

7. Sex Education (Season 4)

This Netflix dramedy about a series of high schoolers trying to navigate the many complications and thrills that come with having sex is easily one of the best shows that's come out in recent years (and one of the most realistic series about high schoolers, too). In 2022, filming for the fourth season began, so we can likely expect new episodes to drop in 2023. (Oh, and did we mention there will be a new character played by Dan Levy? Yeah, he's in everything now and we're thrilled.)

Release date: TBD

8. Succession (Season 4)

When it comes to the Roy family, you can always expect plenty of lying and backstabbing (and laughs), and season 4 is sure to be just as tense. Following 4 Primetime Emmy Award wins for its third installment, Succession is on a hot streak, and fans are eager for the HBO series to return in spring 2023. We are definitely among them.

Release date: Spring 2023

9. Ted Lasso (Season 3)

Our lives have been a whole lot sadder without quippy pop culture references from Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) and explosive expletives courtesy of Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein). However, the third season of the Emmy-winning comedy was filmed in Amsterdam last year, which means we will likely get new episodes in 2023. Until then, we'll be baking a lot of Ted Lasso's biscuits.

Release date: TBD

10. Yellowjackets (Season 2)

Yellowjackets was one of the most chilling shows of 2021, with its Lost meets Lord of the Flies plotline, and season 1 ended with a shocking death and a major cliffhanger. Now, we're finally getting more time with these marooned soccer players (and their future selves), as the Showtime original is set to return on March 24. We've got loads of questions, and we have a feeling we'll have even more once season 2 airs.

Release date: March 24
