TV Shows in 2022 to Look Forward To

Reading Time: 4 minutes

With the start of a new year, many shows are either returning for a new season or making their debuts. However, it can be a bit overwhelming to decide what particular shows to watch. With various streaming services either releasing new shows or new seasons of existing shows, it’s not surprising that some shows stay under people’s radar. I’ve often found myself in a situation of either forgetting that certain shows are coming out or having quite a few shows on my queue that I lose track of. So, since some shows have already been announced, I wanted to put a list together of TV shows in 2022 that you should be on the lookout for.

The shows included on this list were chosen based on several elements, including selecting from various streaming services, encompassing different genres, and picking at least one show returning for a new season. Also included on this list are each show’s main cast and premise.
