75 brilliant new TV shows coming in 2023

The Last of Us

It’s one of the most highly anticipated TV series in years. Based on the critically acclaimed video game of the same name, HBO’s The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed.

Joel (Pedro Pascal), a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie (Bella Ramsey), a 14-year-old girl, out of a quarantine zone.

A brutal, heartbreaking and terrifying journey follows as the pair travel across the US and battle for survival.

Stream The Last of Us weekly on Sky Atlantic with NOW on Mondays until 13 March.

Funny Woman

It’s 1964 and girls are expected to be flirty, fabulous and fertile - they are not expected to be funny, but Barbara Parker is different. 

This comic drama follows Barbara (Gemma Arterton), a young woman working in a Blackpool rock factory who sets off for London without a plan, but with a dream. 

She embarks on a mission to reinvent herself and find her voice in the male-dominated world of the 1960s sitcom. 

However the road to stardom is paved with banana skins and she suffers many a pratfall before she achieves her goal.

Stream Funny Woman on Sky Max with NOW from Thursday 9 February.

Django

Django is a high-concept reimagining of the classic Western, loosely based on Sergio Corbucci’s eponymous cult classic film.

Set in Texas in the late 1800s, Django is a jaded cowboy in search of the daughter he thought he'd lost. 

The series stars the award-winning Matthias Schoenaerts as the iconic title character, alongside Nicholas Pinnock as John Ellis, visionary founder of the town of New Babylon, Lisa Vicari, who plays Django’s daughter Sarah, and Noomi Rapace in the role of John’s powerful and ruthless enemy, Elizabeth Thurman.

All That Breathes

Oscar and BAFTA-nominated documentary All That Breathes is the first film ever to win the best documentary prize at both the Sundance and Cannes film festivals.

Against the darkening backdrop of New Delhi's apocalyptic air and escalating violence, two brothers devote their lives to protecting one casualty of the turbulent times: the bird known as the black kite.

It's been hailed as “one of the best movies of 2022” by the New York Times.

Stream All That Breathes on Sky Documentaries with NOW from 8 February at 9pm.

Right Here, Right Now

Right Here, Right Now is a feature-length documentary about Fatboy Slim's notorious July 2002 event on Brighton Beach, which was described as the “biggest outdoor party the UK has ever seen”.

Right Here, Right Now takes the audience back to 2002 and an extraordinary moment in time, when social and cultural history reached a crossroads at The Big Beach Boutique II. 

The event made history – both good and bad. Organisers and police were expecting 40,000 people but more than a quarter of a million turned up on Brighton Beach for the free event, changing the way UK events were run forever.

Right Here, Right Now features interviews with those who were there on the Brighton sands and witnessed it first-hand including Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Vernon Kay and John Simm, all of whom recount their personal experiences of the era-defining gathering.

Stream Right Here, Right Now on Sky Documentaries with NOW from 4 February at 10pm.
