Welcome, spring! Emerging from the reality TV ground this spring are returning competition shows such as Survivor 44 and Spring Baking Championship and global competitions The Challenge: World Championship and Top Chef: World All Stars.

There will also be non-competitions, from Eva Longoria: Searching for Mexico to yet another Love is Blind.

This guide includes premiere dates for all reality show and documentary series premieres on broadcast, streaming, and cable TV in the United States this spring and beyond. Times listed are in ET/PT.

For any reality shows that premiered before March 1, 2021, such as Tournament of Champions IV, The Challenge: UK, and American Idol, see the winter 2023 schedule.

For feature documentaries and reality TV specials, see the spring 2023 documentary premiere guide.

Program descriptions in quotation marks indicate text that comes from network press releases, the show’s website, or other official materials.

I frequently update this list throughout the quarter, so while dates and times are accurate at the time of publication, please check your TV listings first.

I work hard to ensure this a comprehensive list of reality TV and documentary series premieres, although that’s increasingly challenging now as schedules change frequently and some networks have stopped publicly announcing returning seasons.

If you have any updates, additions, or corrections, please send them to me. Thank you!

If it's a competition show on Food Network, you've seen it all before. Same format, same dumb cooking mistakes being made, same dialog.
