It is impossible to know how a year will go, but we can predict that in 2024 there will be a lot of television and many series to watch, although not as many as in previous years. We review what is coming this year. We’ve narrowed it down to 24 titles, but many that might be released in the coming months have not even been announced or confirmed yet. For example, Stranger Things begins filming its final season very soon, but it is not yet known when it will premiere. For now, here are some titles that should be on your radar.
