Streaming and network TV will bring you a slew of new and returning series in 2022. Returning favorites (Barry, Stranger Things) are joined by some fascinating new additions to the program. HBO’s Game of Thrones spinoff will premiere later this year, as well Amazon’s long-awaited Lord of the Rings drama. It’s going to be a big year, and we’re here to help you figure out what’s worth looking forward to. Now we will discuss some of the TV Premieres.
All new and returning TV premieres in 2022
Original network: Disney Plus
“Obi-Wan Kenobi” picks up 10 years after the events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,” in which Obi-Wan Kenobi suffered his greatest defeat: Anakin Skywalker, his best friend and Jedi trainee, fell to the dark side as a malevolent Sith Lord Darth Vader.
The Star Wars episodes on Disney+ are some of the greatest, and a third will bring back a fan-favorite character this year. Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Jedi Master, has returned to Tatooine and is doing everything he can to ensure that at least one of Anakin’s children is safe. The Jedi Master deals with the fallout and corruption of his one-time friend and protégé, Anakin Skywalker, who became the wicked Sith Lord Darth Vader after turning to the dark side.
Original network: Hulu
Shoresy is a Jared Keeso-created and -starred Canadian television comedy series that launched on Crave on May 13, 2022. Shoresy, follows the eponymous character as he relocates to Sudbury to join a faltering Triple A-level ice hockey club.
Shoresy, the town’s most talented hockey player, is recruited to inject some life into a struggling Sudbury team in this hockey-focused spinoff of the beloved Canadian series Letterkenny. Jared Keeso reprises his role as Shoresy in this hockey-focused spinoff of the beloved Canadian series Letterkenny. Yes, we’ll finally see Shoresy’s face in this one (which was always kept covered in Letterkenny because Keeso also plays Wayne, one of the show’s major characters, as an extended part).
Stranger Things 3
Original Network: Netflix
Stranger Things 3 premiered on Netflix, with the same ’80s immersion and openheartedness that made the first two seasons so popular. The season was gorier and gooier than ever before, with plenty of wonderful goofs and the introduction of great characters like Robin (Maya Hawke) and Alexei (Alec Utgoff). While Season 3 came to a rather obvious end, the series’ eternally binge-worthy quality left us wanting more.
Thankfully, Stranger Things isn’t over yet. The post-credits scene from Season 3 generated more concerns than it answered, while simultaneously broadening the scope of the series beyond Hawkins, Indiana. It’s hard to think Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Will, Lucas, Steve, and the rest of the gang are no longer enslaved by their otherworldly adventures.
Original network: Pistol
Don’t worry about the nonsense: a Sex Pistols bio series is in the works. The full six-part drama, which is inspired by guitarist Steve Jones’ biography and spans the punk group’s early days through the release of their first record, is directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 127 Hours). The series has sparked debate among fans of the band, as one might anticipate. Frontman John Lydon attempted to restrict the usage of their music in the series by using other members of the band in 2021. He lost the lawsuit, so expect to hear “Anarchy in the United Kingdom,” “God Save the Queen,” and other classic Never Mind the Bollocks songs.
The Boys (Season 3)
Original network: Amazon Prime
The lads have returned to town! Eric Kripke’s outstanding series, which imagines a world in which superheroes are essentially evil, returns with a three-episode debut, with the remainder of the season following in June. Get ready to meet some new supers and learn about Congresswoman Victoria Neuman’s secret arrangement with Hughie.
The Boys on Amazon Prime has quietly established itself as one of the greatest and savviest series on television in its two seasons. Though it appears to be a conventional “what if superheroes were evil” story on the surface, it’s a devastatingly pointed criticism of American corporate institutions and the atrocities they’ve produced. Fans are eager for Season 3 after a Season 2 conclusion that was predictably gory but left a lot of unanswered concerns. Here’s everything we know thus far about it.
Peaky Blinders (Season 6)
Original Network: Netflix
Peaky Blinders, a Netflix-by-way-of-BBC thriller, closed up its fifth season with a cliffhanger ending that left more issues unsolved than answers. The last episode of Season 5 drove Tommy Shelby and the rest of his old-school razor gang into turmoil with botched plots, astonishing survivals, and stunning returns. With the sixth and final season nearing completion, we won’t have to wait long to see more of Peaky Blinders.
The BBC revealed that Season 6 has recently begun production and that it will be the final season. The network’s plans to cancel the show with the following season were presumably expedited by the year’s delay caused by the pandemic closure.
The Umbrella Academy
Original network: Netflix
Fans can’t get enough of the superpowered, time-traveling, apocalypse-stopping Hargreeves family since Netflix released its adaptation of My Chemical Romance vocalist Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá’s comic book The Umbrella Academy.
It’s been a long time since fans have been reunited with the Hargreeves since Season 2 aired in summer 2020, but even they couldn’t use their time-traveling abilities to film Season 3 ahead of the epidemic. After nearly two years of anticipation, a debut date has been set: June 22, 2022! Not only has the Hargreeves family finally met their equal in the mysterious “Sparrow Academy,” but their presence in an alternate reality may also lead to the destruction of this new planet, as well as their home, according to Netflix’s first decent look at what to anticipate from the upcoming season.
