    Top 10 Most Anticipated Shows Of 2024

    Hollywood is digging deeper to find stories that resonate with a larger audience, and it is taking steps to represent stories for all racial, caste, sexual, and other identities. Gone are the days when television’s best shows had an all-white cast with cast members from other communities playing side characters. The pandemic has resulted in a multitude of stories coming to the forefront.

    The year 2023 was no different. It gave rise to multiple breakout stars and helped some different stories find their audience. There was the heart-warming ‘Abbott Elementary’, which took the audience by surprise with its gripping comedic tale of a public school in Philadelphia. ‘The Bear’, starring Jeremy Allen-White, was the best culinary drama in contemporary times. While there were limited releases in 2023 due to the writer’s strike, the fan-favorite series and some new titles will be released in the new year 2024.
