2022 is already looking like a golden year for TV. ✨
2022 is already shaping up to be a big year for new television series. Even though it’s only just getting started, dozens of exciting projects have been announced to keep fans on their toes, wanting more. There’s plenty of great TV to watch this year, and you’re going to want to mark your calendars accordingly so you don’t miss a single thing!
Luckily, a strong lineup of old television faves are coming back (like Bridgerton season 2, which looks amazing even sans-Regé Jean Page; Euphoria, which, FINALLY; and Atlanta, which has been on hiatus since way back in 2018). Other shows will officially come to an end this year (we’ll miss you, Killing Eve). And then there are the special surprises set to premiere—from shows that’ll see the light of day after literal years (why hello, Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon) or ones that are ready to simply fill our hearts with every single episode (and hello to How I Met Your Father!).
Whether you’re looking for your next big watch or you’re hoping to see your favorite TV show finally return in 2022, there’s something here for everyone, and you’re not going to want to miss a single second.
