Let's take a look at what we can look forward to on Netflix in 2024.

6. Avatar: The Last Airbender

Release date: February 22

Number of episodes: 8

Netflix has a rather complicated history with live-action adaptations. While the recent One Piece has been universally praised, most other live-action shows like The Witcher have been panned to the hilt. As a result, fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender, the original animated series by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, are particularly anxious for the show's release. To make matters worse, DiMartino and Konietzko originally served as executive producers, but left the project due to creative differences.

Still, unlike M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender, this series boasts a far more faithful casting that takes into account the cultural inspirations of the animated original.

5. The Gentlemen

Release date: March 7

Number of episodes: 10

Guy Ritchie teamed up with Netflix to produce his first television series, with the plot following the story of the 2019 feature film of the same name. Ritchie executive produced and co-scripted (with Matthew Read) the new show. According to the premise, Eddie Halstead (Theo James) inherits an impressive estate, only to discover that the property is tied to the activities of Matthew McConaughey's Mickey Pearson and his weed empire. In addition to James, the series also stars Kaya Scodelario, Giancarlo Esposito and Vinnie Jones.

Well, let's wait for cameos with famous actors from the original!

4. 3 Body Problem

Release date: March 21

Number of episodes: 8

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss may have lost the trust of some fans after the failed final two seasons of Game of Thrones, but that doesn't make 3 Body Problem any less intriguing, especially since Alexander Woo, known for the chilling ghost story in the second season of The Terror, worked with them on the adaptation. Based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Liu Cixin, 3 Body Problem will follow an astrophysicist during the Chinese Cultural Revolution who manages to make contact with an alien civilization. At the same time, the story will unfold in the present day, following the consequences of the astrophysicist's actions.

3. Eric

Release date: First half of 2024

Number of episodes: 6

New York City, 1980s. A puppeteer is devastated by the disappearance of his young son. Half mad, he finds solace in Eric, a supposed living monster under his son's bed. With him, he delves into the creepy underground of Manhattan, where he realizes that the real monsters are the people themselves. Sounds fascinating, doesn't it? Especially when you consider that the father is played by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch!

2. The Perfect Couple

Release date: First half of 2024

Number of episodes: TBA

Nicole Kidman, Liev Schreiber, Dakota Fanning and Eve Hewson are set to star in a new crime drama about a murder that takes place at a wedding and puts everyone in the family under suspicion. Despite the strikes, filming has already finished, so we should expect an announcement very soon.

1. Monsters: The Lyle and Erik Menendez Story

Release date: Late 2024

Number of episodes: TBA

After the unprecedented success of Dahmer and the controversy that followed, the true crime genre has become one of Netflix's calling cards. Ryan Murphy is ready to deliver a new story, this time focusing on Lyle and Erik Menéndez, who murdered their wealthy parents. Some believe they did it for selfish reasons, while others take their side, claiming they were victims of sexual and physical abuse. What was the real story?

Filming is set to begin as early as December, so don't expect the show until late 2024 at the earliest.
