The first two months of the TV calendar are a bit of a warmup. While the new year has no shortage of new shows to offer — how else are you going to fit hundreds of series into 12 months? — things really start to heat up in March.

Once the entertainment world puts both the Oscars and SXSW (where some of these new shows will premiere) in the rear view, all eyes turn to the heart of TV awards season and all the prestige vying that comes with it. Certainly, not all the shows in the below collection of March TV premieres will be in that conversation. But there’s always the potential to mint a brand new TV phenomenon in the faint early glimmer of spring.

Where most months have plenty of box-ticking adaptations and franchise extensions, even those in this upcoming March have a slightly different feel. There’s a comedy institution making a return after over four decades. There are a handful of series with a fresh spin on the standard horror show. We’ve got musicals and music competitions and Kiefer Sutherland trying to expose a massive conspiracy. Some of the biggest novels of the 1860s and the 2010s get a chance at a(nother) screen version.

As usual, the shows in these roundups (like the ones we did for January and February) traverse network and cable and streaming and all those confusing areas in the middle. If somehow, none of these pique your interest, there’s also our broader list of Anticipated 2023 TV, which includes shows that will come a good time later in the year. For now, here’s March.
