Many TV programs are returning in 2022, and some new TV shows are premiering, with some of them being greatly awaited since their announcement. Many new series debuted in 2021, both on regular TV programming and on streaming platforms, with the most notable being all Marvel original episodes on Disney +, which began at the beginning of the year with WandaVision. Disney + will expand on these in 2022, not only for Marvel’s original series but also for Star Wars brand shows. All of this indicates that there will be a slew of highly anticipated TV series in 2022.
Some of the shows that will premiere in 2022 were meant to premiere sooner. New productions experienced comparable impacts to numerous current productions that were interrupted because of the Covid-19 epidemic in 2020. Among these, the epidemic halted development on both the long-awaited Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon and Amazon’s Lord of the Rings prequel, causing its release to be delayed.
How I Met Your Father (Hulu)
The spinoff of How I Met Your Mother will center on Sophie, played by Hilary Duff in the present timeline beginning in 2020, and Kim Cattrall in the future, recounting her son the narrative of how she met his father. The show will pay homage to the 2005 comedy by employing the same framework, but will also use the gimmick of relaying the narrative to the son to do the same for the audience, reliving Sophie’s early adulthood stories. Hulu will premiere How I Met Your Father on January 28.
Daisy Jones And The Six (Amazon Prime)
Daisy Jones and the Six, produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, is based on Taylor Jenkins Reed’s 2019 popular novel of the same name, which focuses on the iconic fictitious rock band The Six and their relationship with solo singer Daisy Jones. It chronicles their meteoric ascent to popularity in the 1970s Los Angeles scene, as well as the abrupt end of their cooperation. Daisy Jones and the Six’s premiere date has yet to be confirmed, however, given that the program only began production in November 2021, it will most likely broadcast later in the year.
Star Wars: Andor (Disney +)
Diego Luna will resume his role as the title character Cassian Andor in Star Wars: Andor, a 12-episode prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The program will serve as an origin tale for the hero of the Star Wars stand-alone film, although few narrative elements are available at this time. Although the exact release date is uncertain, Star Wars: Andor is expected to be published between July and September.
House Of The Dragon (HBO)
House of the Dragon season 1 will consist of ten episodes based on George R. R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood. It will center on House Targaryen, especially the beginning of the collapse of Targaryen influence and supremacy. House of the Dragon stars a number of well-known actors, including Doctor Who’s Matt Smith as Daemon Targaryen. Its release date has yet to be determined.
She/Hulk (Disney +)
Mark Ruffalo will reprise his role as Bruce Banner in the ten-episode legal dramedy, while Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany will play his cousin Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk. Part of Marvel’s Phase 4, the TV program will follow the eponymous heroine Jennifer Walters, a lawyer who specializes in cases involving superhumans and who, like her cousin, can change into a stronger, green-tinted version of herself. The premiere date for She-Hulk has yet to be confirmed, but it remains one of the most anticipated TV Shows for 2022.
