Netflix
If you like Toy Story (and literally who doesn't), this animated Netflix project should be on your radar. Shannon Tindle—the creator of Kubo and the Two Strings, Utlraman writer, and Coraline designer—and Peter Ramsey, one of the directors of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, will co-pilot the series, adapted from William Joyce’s 2016 book Ollie’s Odyssey, about a cute plushy toy looking for its boy. Jonathan Groff, Mary J. Blige, Tim Blake Nelson, Gina Rodriguez, and Jake Johnson are among the voice cast.

Love and Death

HBO Max
This drama tells the true story of how a Texas woman named Candy Montgomery brutally murdered her best friend Betty Gore in the '80s. If that sounds familiar, it should: Hulu released another dramatized miniseries about the exact same case in spring 2022 with Jessica Biel and Melanie Lynskey as the stars. In this version, Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland) directs, David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies) produces, and Elizabeth Olsen and Lily Rabe are in the starring roles. 

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story

Netflix
There was a time when American Horror Story staple Evan Peters had to call it quits on starring in the series because he said the material was getting too dark. He did eventually return to the FX series, but now he's starring in perhaps his most intense role ever, playing serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. It's yet another Netflix project from Ryan Murphy, co-created with his frequent collaborator Ian Brennan, and the limited series is said to be told from the perspective of his victims, exploring how police incompetence contributed to a killing spree that lasted decades.

The Power

Amazon Prime
Naomi Alderman is the creator and executive producer of Amazon Prime's upcoming series about her own 2016 novel The Power, a composite story about women suddenly developing an electrical current in their bodies and the shift in society's power dynamics that it brings. Reed Morano (The Handmaid’s Tale) will direct, and Leslie Mann, Auli’i Cravalho, Rainn Wilson, John Leguizamo, and many others will star in the feminist sci-fi thriller.

The Watcher

Netflix
Another Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan production headed to Netflix this year, The Watcher is inspired by a true story, first covered in The Cut, about a couple who bought their dream house in New Jersey—only to be stalked and receive threatening letters from someone signed "The Watcher." Naomi Watts, Bobby Canavale, and Jennifer Coolidge lead the cast.

The White House Plumbers

HBO
In this five-part historical drama, Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux will portray E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, two members of the Nixon White House and Watergate orchestrators who inadvertently led to the downfall of the presidency. Lena Headey, Domhnall Gleeson, and Ike Barinholtz are also among the cast.

Netflix
The Witcher was a huge hit on Netflix, and two seasons in, the fans are craving more lore. The Witcher: Blood Origin will follow a new band of heroes 1,200 years before the events of The Witcher and right before the catastrophic Conjunction of the Spheres that brought monsters and magical creatures to the Continent—and created the world's very first Witcher.
