Only a few days to go before 2022 will end. Phew! 2022 has been such a rollercoaster ride in terms of everything. From movies, and shows to COVID, 2022 has been emancipating and a flagbearer of more open and broad concepts that generate more discourse in every field. Shows like Emily in Paris, Wednesday, and The Umbrella Academy have topped the list of 2022. But if you’re looking at the early release list of the shows in 2023, you might feel that early 2023 has the potential to top this year. Don’t believe us?
Take a look at the five most awaited shows that will release in early 2023.
5 Shows to look forward to in early 2023
1. You Season 4
2023 is now all set to give you the chance to say, “Hey, you!” Releasing in two parts, Netflix will start streaming the first part of the thriller on Friday, February 10th, 2023, whereas the second part will premiere on Friday, March 10th, 2023. As per Netflix Life, we can expect Joe to don the garb of a Jonathan Moore who has relocated to London “to bury his dark past and is looking forward to a fresh start by working as a professor at a university.”
From New York to Los Angeles and Madre Linda to Paris, Joe has been shifting locations from season one. And now, London. In every place, we see Joe adopting a new façade, only to be dictated by the motives of his real self. We don’t expect anything different in this season. Netflix Life also corroborates, saying:
“Something or someone will tick him off, and then he’s back to his old ways on a killing spree again.”
2. Ginny & Georgia Season 2
Dropping on Netflix on January 5th, Ginny & Georgia season 2 has only piqued the anticipation of fans all over the globe, which was exacerbated owing to the delay in the release date. Premiered on February 24, 2021, Ginny & Georgia is an American comedy-drama television series created by Sarah Lambert and run by Debra Fisher. In the span of 10 episodes, the first of this comedy televised the demise of Georgia’s husband and the pair leaving Texas to move into a new town for a new chapter. The series broached upon a slew of themes ranging from crime, race, marriage, friendships, and self-harm.
In the span of 10 episodes, you can expect the second season to pick up two after season 1 left the story. Season 2 will underscore Ginny’s actions in the aftermath of what her mom has done, while she simultaneously manages the school, romance and her social circles. With Ginny knowing Georgia’s dark past and the appearance of Georgia’s ex-husband/Austin’s dad, you can only expect more dramatic tension in season 2.
3. That ’90s Show

According to Netflix Life, That ‘90s Show will “centre on Red and Kitty Forman (Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp reprising their roles) taking in their granddaughter Leia (Callie Haverda, playing the daughter of Eric and Donna) for a summer. Once again, these ’90s teens will get up to no good.”

“Hello, Wisconsin! It’s 1995 and Leia Forman, daughter of Eric and Donna, is visiting her grandparents for the summer where she bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red. Sex, drugs and rock ’n roll never dies, it just changes clothes.”
4. Vikings: Valhalla Season 2
