From Dreamland to The Last Of Us, there are so many brilliant new shows to get stuck into in the new year. 

Whether you’re in the mood for a drama, thriller or comedy, there are so many brilliant TV shows coming to Sky and NOW in the new year.

Here’s our pick of the best new titles coming in 2023 (and don’t worry, we’ll be sure to keep updating this list as and when more TV series are announced).

Happy viewing…

The Last Of Us

Set some 20 years after modern civilisation has been destroyed, hard-as-nails smuggler Joel (Pedro Pascal) is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of an oppressive quarantine zone and away to St Mary’s Hospital. 

Unfortunately, though, there’s a horde of infected zombies in the way – and half of them don’t even need to see the duo to attack. Just like bats, they work on the slightest sound alone, which means that they need to listen out for those tell-tale clicking sounds.

Watch the trailer for The Last Of Us below:

A nightmarish horror series? Sure, but one that is rooted in reality and filled with plenty of warmth and heart, too. Just be sure to keep a packet of tissues to hand for those tearjerker moments (and a pillow to hide behind whenever a Clicker appears on screen).

The Last Of Us will air exclusively on Sky Atlantic and NOW on 16 January.

“In series four, the sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) moves ever closer,” reads a synopsis for the much-anticipated fourth season of Succession.

A power struggle ensues as the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed.”

Succession: Season 4 will air in spring 2023 on Sky Atlantic and NOW.
