5 Best Upcoming Sci-Fi Series We Can’t Stop Raving About

OTT fever is on with each new platform in a space race against each other to bring larger-than-life wholesome TV shows to the table to keep us entertained. 2023 has almost come to a close and some of the biggest shows are yet to be released, and we can’t control the excitement.

With platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and Apple TV+ merging the best of motion pictures across continents and cultures, there are plenty of options to choose from. However, when it comes to the sci-fi genre engaging and impressing the erudite sci-fi audience has been a difficult task for most platforms and production houses.

The main reason for this is this audience looks for something out of the ordinary with scientific and technological accuracy, which most shows lack because of plain old bad writing.

Star Wars: Skeleton Crew – Disney+ (2024)

Star Wars is in high demand and Disney can’t get enough of producing spinoffs to keep a large Star Wars immersed in its crafty over-the-top and action-packed offerings.

In the same scheme of things, Skeleton Crew is a coming-of-age story of four kids and their adventures around the galaxy. The presumable story revolves around the concept of returning home or realizing one’s true potential in the midst of overbearing circumstances.

It is set in the same timeline as The Mandalorian and is written by Christopher Ford and directed by the iconic Marvel Spider-Man trilogy director Jon Watts. Scheduled to be released in the last quarter of 2024, it is simply an unmissable experience for the fan-lings of the Star Wars aesthetic.

3 Body Problem – Netflix (2024)

If you love reading Sci-Fi books and are familiar with this one then we would advise you to hang on tight as your favorite book is about to be released in a full-scale TV series. The 3 Body Problem is based on the bestseller novel by Cixin Liu and features a superbly crafted screenplay that depicts humanity’s first contact with aliens following an alien invasion.

The initial premise of the series is based on the investigations of a nanomaterials expert who is trying to dissect the web of lies surrounding the alien invasion by the higher authorities. He does this through a VR game called Three-Body that helps him jump back and forth across timelines while staying closely connected to the present day.

An ambitious time-travel flick with an equally amazing cast, the 3 Body Problem is a must-have on your binge-list.

Ironheart – Disney+ (2024)

If you cried hours on end when Tony Stark died towards the end of the Infinity Wars saga then fret no more as we have Ironheart coming soon. MCU’s Phase 5 is bringing us an entirely fresh spin-off series exploring the adventures of Riri Williams who first appeared in 2022’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

According to recent rumors, the characterization and storyline are somewhat similar to Tony Stark with an exploration of Riri Williams creating her very own uber-tech-powered suit similar to Iron Man and will allow us to further deep dive into the origin story of this unexplored MCU character.

A show based on the adventures of Tony Stark’s daughter would have been more amazing, but this is a must-watch show if you want to simply bring back the memories.

Fallout – Amazon Prime (2024)

Your favorite action-thriller role-play game will be available as a full-scale post-apocalyptic drama series in 2024. One of the highest-rated and longest-running game series of all time, Fallout is more than just a game as it boasts an interesting storyline and depiction of a retro-futuristic world.

Primed to be released during the first half of 2024, what adventures Vault Dweller will see in the first season is still a mystery.

Still, one thing is certain as is the case for most Amazon productions that it will be a treat for gaming and Sci-Fi lovers alike.

Star Trek: Section 31 – Parmount+ (2024)

After the culmination of her character in Star Trek: Discovery fans wanted Michelle Yeoh to reprise the role in some other timeline as whether she will be coming back in season 5 remains a mystery. If you were one of these fans then there is some good news for you.

The academy-award winner will be reprising her role as Philippa Georgiou soon in the upcoming paramount feature, Star Trek: Section 31, and the iconic character will be hitting the screens soon.
