Top new shows of 2023

5 January, 2024

In 2023, the world of streaming platforms experienced significant turbulence, characterized by a prolonged strike involving writers and actors, numerous platform mergers, and a mix of show launches and cancellations. As the year concluded, certain new releases stood out for their impact on the streaming industry.

Netflix led the charge, claiming half of the top 10 spots for the most in-demand streaming originals of 2023. The standout was the live-action adaptation of the anime One Piece, which topped the list. Released in August, it garnered a remarkable 52.8 times the average demand of other shows in its first month. Other Netflix hits included Blue Eye Samurai, an adult animated series; the action-packed The Night Agent; the competitive reality show Squid Game: The Challenge; and The Fall of the House of Usher, a miniseries inspired by Edgar Allan Poe.


Disney+ also made its mark with releases tied to its flagship Star Wars and Marvel franchises. Both Ahsoka and Secret Invasion resonated strongly with audiences, surpassing an average demand of 40 times.

Amazon Prime Video introduced a new addition to The Boys universe with Gen V, which secured the fourth spot in the rankings. This was closely followed by the platform's contrasting musical drama, Daisy Jones & The Six.

The list was rounded out by Apple TV+'s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters. As a sequel to the 2014 Godzilla movie and the second TV series in the MonsterVerse franchise, it made a significant late-year splash following its mid-November release, ranking as the second most recent show on the list.
