Schmigadoon! Season 2

Apple TV Plus, 5 April 2023

Fired On Mars

HBO, 20 April 2023

A tricky one, since HBO hasn’t released any trailers of news yet. But we know that HBO bought the rights to produce a series based on the 2016 short film by Nate Sherman and Nick Vokey, Fired on Mars. As the name suggests, a graphic designer on a one-way trip to Mars gets fired from his job when he gets there. Now what? Well, the team recently did an interview re the show at WonderCon, and it looks to still be set for a 20 April release. So let’s see what happens on Fired on Mars.

Mrs Davis

Peacock, 20 April 2023

One of the month’s most anticipated sci-fi series, Mrs Davis is an AI. And Simone is the nun who is hell-bent on destroying her. It? Staring Betty Gilpin and produced by Big Bang Theory creator Tara Hernandez and Watcmen’s Damon Lindelof, it looks bananas and we should probably prepare for a crazy ride in Mrs Davis.

Tooth Pari: When Love Bites

Netflix, 20 April 2023

And for something a little quirkier, the Netflix India production Tooth Pari: When Love Bites (loosely means tooth repair in Hindi) is set for a global release on 20 April. Sparks fly when a rebellious young vampire goes to a boy-next-door-type human dentist to have her broken fangs fixed. But, there are a lot of machinations in both the human and vampire world on the streets of Kolkata that threaten to tear them apart in Tooth Pari: When Love Bites

Mike Judge’s Beavis And Butthead Season 2

Paramount Plus, 20 April 2023

We all must have done something either very right or very wrong in the past because Mike Judge’s Beavis and Butthead reboot is coming back for a second season on 20 April. And, though there’s no hard and fast rule, you probably have to watch it at exactly 4:20 in the afternoon to enjoy it to the fullest.

Welcome To Eden Season 2

Netflix, 21 April 2023

There are scant details on it, but the Spanish sci-fi-esque drama Welcome to Eden got renewed almost the moment it was released on Netflix International. And Netflix says it’s coming on 21 April. In season 1, a group of attractive social influencers got invited to an idyllic island by the Eden Foundation. But they got a bit more than just paradise in the bargain. And all we know about season 2 is that a set of new members are arriving on the island.

Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures

Disney Plus, 26 April 2023

Possibly the most anticipated entry on this list, we join Gus, Big Man and the Hybrids in Sweet Tooth Season 2 on 27 April. Gus, held captive with the hybrids and Dr Singh by General Abbot’s Last Men, agrees to explore his mother’s dark past. But a new wave of The Sick sweeps across the world and pressure mounts to just destroy the hybrids.

Amazon Prime Video, 28 April 2023 

A lot of people seem to have really big plans for the new series Citadel. And, from what we’ve seen so far, they could be onto something. Starting as this first series on Prime Video, the emotionally charged sci-fi spy/techno-thriller stars Richard Madden and India’s Priyanka Chopra Jonas, supported by Stanley Tucci, and is produced by the Russo Brothers (Marvel Cinematic Universe). It’s said to feature a major global event that will kick off a whole host of spin-off series in multiple countries and languages. Ambitious. Let’s see what it’s all about in Citadel.

Hope to See Soon

Frog And Toad

Apple TV, 28 April 2023 (TBC)

Apple TV is meant to unveil its rendition of Arnold Lobel’s classic ’70s children’s books Frog and Toad on 28 April. But there’s no information from Apple yet, no trailer and the show page only says “on a later date”. So we hope to see it soon, but unsure if it’ll be in April after all.

Plus: Still Streaming: New Episodes of Sci-Fi and Fantasy Series in April 2023

More New Episodes Of The Mandalorian Season 3

In this season Pedro Pascal’s The Mandalorian aka “Din Djarin” is in fact reunited with Grogu, aka “Baby Yoda”. (The Book of Boba Fett fans will already know that.) Din and Grogu are set for the Mandalorian home planet, Mandalore, so Din can atone for removing his helmet. It’s exciting because Jon Favreau was again very active this season, penning at least 5 out of the 8 episodes of The Mandalorian Season 3.

More New Episodes Of Riverdale Season 7

The final season in the modern-day, horror-mystery rendition of the Archie universe lands on 29 March 2023. And, as the end of Season 6 made clear, a spell has taken the entire town and all its residents back to the 1950s. Which is kinda more like the Archie comics we know and love. And everyone seems to have forgotten and is happily living out their 1950s lifestyle. Except for Jughead, who seems to be the only one who remembers that they don’t really belong here. In Riverdale Season 7.

More New Episodes Of School Spirits

When a teen dies and gets stuck in the afterlife at her school – of all places – she struggles to get to grips with being able to see the living kids’ lives play out, without being able to interact. Thing is, she’s not alone, there are others who suffer the same fate in Paramount+’s new show School Spirits.

More New Episodes Of Yellowjackets Season 2

Showtime’s runaway hit Yellowjackets is finally getting a second season, for better or worse (it probably contains cannibalism). If you missed number 1, it’s a dual story about a sports team whose plane crashes in the wild and they must survive, and the aftermath of all that trauma 25 years later. Now, however, winter sets in for the survivors and, in the future, surprise characters are introduced in Yellowjackets Season 2.

More New Episodes Of Superman & Lois Season 3

Clark and Lois Kent are settling into small-town life again as reporters for the Smallville Gazette. But Lois discovers a new enemy that could derail everything. To make matters worse, their children are drifting apart in the CW’s Superman & Lois Season 3.

More New Episodes Of Gotham Knights

When Batman is murdered, his adoptive son Turner Hayes (a new character, exclusively created for the show) befriends the children of some of the Bat’s arch nemeses to form a new squad of protectors. It looks like we’ll get to see Navia Robinson as the new female Robin, both Harper and Cullen Row, Stephanie Brown, the Cluemaster’s daughter and Olivia Rose Keegan as Duela, The Joker’s kid. Pretty cool too to see Supernatural’s Misha Collins as Harvey Dent in The CW’s new Gotham Knights.
