We’re still many months away from a new season of “Queer Eye,” but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your Tan France fix in the meantime. “Next in Fashion,” the clothing design competition reality series hosted by France, is returning for a second season of beautiful looks and runway walks. This season, he’ll be joined by supermodel and television personality Gigi Hadid as his new co-host.

For Fans Of: “Lost,” “The Wilds,” “Station Eleven”

Starring: Christina Ricci (“Wednesday”), Melanie Lynsky (“Castle Rock”), Juliette Lewis (“Natural Born Killers”), Tawny Cypress (“Unforgettable”)

The twisty thriller “Yellowjackets” is one of the most suspenseful—and most bizarre—shows on television right now. This story of how a high school girls’ soccer team survives a plane crash in the northern wilderness, and the effects impacting them decades later, has elements of horror interwoven with mystery and dark humor. Season 1 had more plot twists than we can describe here, with a cult, a series of murders, a kidnapping and much more—and its cliffhanger ending left fans with more questions than answers. Here’s hoping that the new faces joining the cast, including Elijah Wood of “Lord of the Rings” fame, help to fill in the blanks. If you missed the first season when it debuted in 2021, make sure to catch up before diving into the new season. Maybe just cover your pet’s eyes during those bloody hunting scenes?



Premiere Date: March 26

For Fans Of: High-stakes workplace dramas like “Billions” and “Industry”

Starring: Brian Cox (“Braveheart”), Jeremy Strong (“The Trial of the Chicago Seven”), Sarah Snook (“The Dressmaker”), Kieran Culkin (“Igby Goes Down”)

One of the most highly anticipated returns of 2023, the Emmy award-winning hit “Succession” will surely be the talk of the internet every Sunday night starting March 26. The show about a power-hungry family whose members have no trouble stabbing one another in the back is fully obsession-worthy (despite the fact that every character is, well, a terrible person). The new season picks up right where we left off, with family company Waystar Royco inching ever closer to new ownership under erratic tech giant Lukas Matsson. Will the Roy siblings band together to save the company? Probably not, but you can certainly expect more rivalries, shocking betrayals and Kieran Culkin’s unmatched comedic timing across these next 10 episodes.

“Rain Dogs”

Premiere Date: March 6

For Fans Of: Dark comedies like “Better Things” and “Shameless”

Starring: Daisy May Cooper (“This Country”), Jack Farthing (“Spencer”), Ronke Adekoluejo (“Been So Long”), Adrian Edmondson (“Bancroft”)

London-born Irish author and screenwriter Cash Carraway is the fresh voice behind this new comedic series that centers on working class single mom Costello Jones and her 10-year-old daughter Iris. It’s a dark comedy that focuses on the complexity of friendships and family relationships, as well exploring matters of poverty, privilege and prejudice—much like Carraway’s bestselling memoir “Skint Estate.” It doesn’t look like there are any actual dogs in this story, but that doesn’t mean you won’t love curling up on the couch with your own pup to watch this poignant series.

Amazon Prime

“Daisy Jones and the Six”

Premiere Date: March 3

For Fans Of: Fleetwood Mac, “Almost Famous,” and rock and roll history

Starring: Riley Keough (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), Sam Claflin (“Me Before You”), Sebastian Chacon (“Emergency”), Camila Morrone (“Death Wish”), Suki Waterhouse (“Seance”)

It’s 1977 and fictional rock band Daisy Jones & The Six have just become a world-wide sensation. But like any musical group, there’s plenty of drama—leading to a legendary rock-and-roll breakup. This new musical-drama series based on author Taylor Jenkins Reid’s bestselling novel of the same name plays out like a documentary on the band’s rise and fall, and offers a glimpse into the world of music stardom. The story itself is said to be inspired in part by Fleetwood Mac’s long history of ups and downs, so if you or your pets are a fan, add it to your list!

“The Power”

Premiere Date: March 31

For Fans Of: “Yellowjackets,” “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” “Paper Girls”

Starring: Toni Collette (“Hereditary”), John Leguizamo (“Latin History for Morons”), Auli’i Cravalho (“Moana”), Toheeb Jimoh (“Ted Lasso”)

In a world where young women are frequently made to feel lesser, evolution takes a bizarre turn when it’s discovered that teenage girls have suddenly developed the ability to electrocute people at will. That’s the unique premise of “The Power,” a show based on Naomi Alderman’s book of the same name that gives a very literal meaning to the term “female empowerment.” What happens when teen girls finally have the chance to make the world take them seriously? Grab some popcorn and some treats for your furry friend and get ready to find out.
