On the TV front there are several high-profile new series including HBO’s “Game of Thrones” prequel spin-off “House of the Dragon,” the long-gestating Netflix TV series adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman” comics, the latest “ Star Wars” series with “Andor,” while Marvel drops the legal comedy “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” and a series of “I Am Groot” short films.

On the new series front, there’s Apple’s bound to be controversial “Five Days at Memorial,” Amazon’s high profile “A League of Their Own” series adaptation, Mike Judge bringing back “Beavis and Butt-Head,” British mini-series import “ The Undeclared War,” FX’s football club docuseries “Welcome to Wrexham,” the anime “Tekken: Bloodline,” the new animated FX comedy “Little Demon”.

Returnees wise, there are the final seasons of “Locke & Key” and “See,” the thirteenth season of “Archer,” and the return of recent success stories like “Star Trek: Lower Decks,” “Kevin Can F— Himself, ” “Reservation Dogs,” “Industry,” “The Cuphead Show,” “Stargirl,” “Resident Alien,” “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” “Tales of the Walking Dead” and a “South Park” concert special.

On the games front, the PC finally gets PlayStation-exclusive “Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered” and gets all the bells and whistles. SEGA delivers the long-anticipated follow-up to the great “Two Point Hospital” with “Two Point Campus,” “Destroy All Humans 2 – Reprobed” remasters the classic game sequel, and the “Saints Row” franchise gets a full reboot.
