Touted as one of the major OTT platforms, Netflix abounds a plethora of popular comedy shows that are now becoming the talk of the town. Sifting through this litany and choosing one to watch becomes a struggle. However, if you’re looking forward to watching some of the fresh comedy Netflix Originals, then you’ve landed on the right destination.
We’ve compiled some of the most popular Netflix comedy shows which will arrive in 2023 with no requirement of any pre-contextual knowledge pool whatsoever. These are the most popular shows which are expected to make a cut in Netflix’s top 10.
5 comedy shows coming to Netflix in 2023
1. Sex Education Season 4
Sex Education was renewed for a fourth season on September 25, 2021. This exciting announcement was made during Netflix’s TUDUM event. The renewal does not come off as a surprise, owing to the series being one of the most popular Originals, whose fame and audience are exponentially observing a rising graph. Moreover, being the flagship comedy series for the streaming service, it has ricocheted the charts and made a seemingly permanent position on the top 10 lists around the world.
The latest season of Sex Education has even been successful in dethroning Lucifer from its top spot. Additionally, it boasts a number-one spot on Netflix in 70 different countries including the US, UK, Australia, and Canada. Based on Netflix’s top 10 data released in August 2022, season 3 of Sex Education is touted to be one of the biggest shows of September.
The official outline of Sex Education season 4 reads:
“Following the closure of Moordale Secondary, Otis and Eric now face a new frontier – their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College. Otis is nervous about setting up his new clinic, whilst Eric is praying they won’t be losers again. But Cavendish is a culture shock for all the Moordale students – they thought they were progressive but this new college is at another level.
“There’s daily yoga in the communal garden, a strong sustainability vibe and a group of kids who are popular for being… kind?! Viv is totally thrown by the college’s student-led, non-competitive approach, while Jackson is still struggling to get over Cal. Aimee tries something new by taking an Art A-Level, and Adam grapples with whether mainstream education is for him. Over in the US, Maeve is living her dream at the prestigious Wallace University, being taught by cult author Thomas Molloy. Otis is pining after her, whilst adjusting to not being an only child at home, or the only therapist on campus…”
The filming for Sex Education season 4 began last summer. This implies that it would probably release sometime in early 2023.
2. Never Have I Ever season 4
We have officially entered March 2023 and the fans of the smash hit Mindy Kaling Netflix original, Never Have I Ever, are still perched on the edge of their seats, waiting for some news regarding its upcoming fourth season. Ever since Netflix announced the filming for the latest season had wrapped in August 2022, fans had speculated that this romantic comedy would hit the Netflix library in 2023. Written and produced by Mindy Kaling, this coming-of-age show has garnered the People’s Choice Award for the Comedy Show of the Year in 2021 and 2022, with a 93% score on Rotten Tomatoes, and has consistently been among Netflix’s top 10 shows.
Season 3 ended with high tension between Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) and Ben (Jaren Lewison) which will only culminate in the corridors of Sherman Oaks High in season 4. Netflix has reportedly confirmed that season 4 of Never Have I Ever will be premiering in 2023. In addition, the official Twitter account of the series in September 2022 also hinted at the arrival of the season to come “soon”. With that said, we can certainly predict that the fourth and final installment of the series would hit the Netflix library in the early half of 2023. Love, Victor star Michael Cimino will be joining the cast of Never Have I Ever season 4 as Ethan to add more spice to Devi’s life (as if it wasn’t already there!)
Concerning the plot of the upcoming installment, Deadline writes:
“It is senior year, after all, so there has to be a mix of school goals and dating fun. There’s at least one other exciting element that was revealed in the video below, there’s a wedding celebration in the future and it’s somebody unexpected.”
3. Emily in Paris season 4
With season 3 encircling the perfect amalgamation of relationship fiascos, office adventures, and glittering sartorial couture, fans are wondering what is the future of Emily Cooper in Paris. As you might be knowing, seasons 3 and 4 of Emily in Paris were renewed in early 2022. If we take into consideration the production schedules of Emily in Paris seasons 2 and 3, we expect the filming process of the brand-new installment to end by season 2023.
In a conversation with TVGuide concerning what turn the plot will take in season 4, the creator Darren Star said, “Season 4 is going to be more about navigating complicated relationships; personal relationships and work relationships, and how they come into conflict with each other…”
Lily Collins, who reprises the female protagonist, Emily Cooper is also serving as the executive producer on the show. In a conversation with People about her character arc in Season 4, she revealed that she wants her character to receive closure. Additionally, she mentioned that her character’s friendship with Ashley Park will remain honest and grounded in the upcoming season as well.
Expecting the fourth season to follow in the footsteps of its predecessors in terms of its production and post-production schedule, we expect Emily in Paris season 4 to drop in late 2023, maybe in the holiday season itself.
Save the date folks because a new Netflix comedy featuring Rob Lowe and his son John Owen Lowe is hitting the library on Thursday, March 30th, 2023. Titled Unstable, the show is co-created and executive produced by Rob Lowe, John Owen Lowe and Victor Fresco. Interestingly, the show is inspired by the father and son’s off-screen dynamic.
The show encircles the life of a successful biotech entrepreneur Ellis Dragon (Rob Lowe) who finds moving on with life after his wife’s death. Upon the arrival of his socially-challenged son, Jackson Dragon (John Owen Lowe), who starts helping his dad in his company to prevent it from collapsing. However, Jackson would like to create his own identity and not be adumbrated by his dad or his company. The cast also includes the likes of Sian Clifford, Rachel Marsh, Emma Ferreira, Aaron Branch, Fred Armisen, Tom Allen, JT Parr, and others.
The official synopsis of the first season reads:
“Ellis Dragon (Rob Lowe) is a universally admired, eccentric, narcissist-adjacent biotech entrepreneur working to make the world a better place. He’s also in an emotional free-fall. His son Jackson Dragon (John Owen Lowe) is… none of those things. Can Jackson save Ellis and his company and salvage their estranged relationship while also doing what may actually be impossible: escaping the shadow of his larger-than-life father?”
