And how will Tom’s (Matthew Macfadyen) betrayal impact the family’s dynamic moving forward? Only time will tell.

True Detective - Season 4 - Jodie Foster

True Detective

The acclaimed anthology series returns for its fourth season, titled Night Country, starring Jodie Foster as Detective Liz Danvers alongside Kali Reis who will play Detective Evangeline Navarro.

Our Flag Means Death

The sweet and surprising rom-com following the love story of ill-prepared pirate wannabe Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby) and the “fearsome” Blackbeard (Taika Waititi) can’t return soon enough. Thankfully, it will set sail once again in 2023, as filming recently wrapped on the David Jenkins-led HBO Max Original. When it will officially return in 2023? Just as mysterious as buried treasure, but mercifully not as elusive.

The comedy starring Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder left things uncertain between their characters as Smart’s Deborah Vance seemingly ended her mentor relationship with Einbinder’s Ava.

Until we have more information about an exact date, we’ll be waiting with bated breath.

Barry left viewers with quite a cliffhanger in its third season, and although fans had to wait nearly three years between Season 2 and its most recent entry, the dramedy will officially return for Season 4 in 2023. So, while it’s unclear exactly when the show will finally offer up answers regarding Barry (Bill Hader) and Gene (Henry Winkler), there’s a comfort in knowing the wait won’t be as long as last time.
