Sumptuous costumes, whip-smart dialogue and plot lines sprawling enough to spawn endless spin-offs: the best TV shows of 2023 boast everything one could hope to find in a must-watch series. Returning favourites include The Gilded Age Season 2, which brings to life 1800s New York high society, and Bridgerton Season 3, which will see two new characters take centre stage. It will be a farewell tour for two blockbuster series — Succession and The Crown — but in their place come new arrivals like Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, Daisy Jones & The Six and (hopefully) the long-awaited Feud: Capote’s Women. Here, Tatler shares the best TV shows of the year…

    Daisy Jones & The Six

    Prepare for serious Seventies style envy with Daisy Jones & The Six, the new Amazon Prime series based on the Taylor Jenkins Reid bestseller of the same name. The atmospheric show follows an ultra-cool band (think Fleetwood Mac) on their rise and fall in the music scene in 1970s California. Starring Sam Claflin, Camila Morrone, Suki Waterhouse, and Riley Keough, it promises sex, drugs — and style inspiration. Amazon Prime Video, 3 March

    You, Season 4

    This cult hit Netflix series might not yet be on your radar but it should be. This season the stalker-murder drama relocates to London, where lead character Joe (Penn Badgley of Gossip Girl fame) rubs shoulders with the aristocracy and lands a plum role at a prestigious university. But, as fans of the series will no, nothing is as straightforward as it seems. Netflix, Season 4, part 2 lands 9 March.

    Succession, Season 4

    The rollicking ride of the cut-throat Roy family will come to an end with Succession, Season 4. A trailer shows Roy’s four children, Connor (Alan Ruck), Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Shiv (Sarah Snook), in turmoil following their failed attempted coup in the Season 3 finale. ‘This is a chessboard. And every move is crucial,’ the trailer promises. Also returning, naturally, is Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and fan favourite Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun). US: HBO, 26 March. UK: Sky Atlantic/Now, 27 March.
