Summer 2022 will be jam-packed with new television series. The year 2022 is already shaping up to be a great one for television, with a slew of new programs set to premiere in the spring.
Peacemaker, a highly praised spin-off from The Suicide Squad on HBO Max, a new MCU hero’s debut in Moon Knight on Disney+, and critically acclaimed programs like Yellowjackets, The Dropout, and Severance have all premiered in 2022.
So far this year, numerous forms have been tried. Because of the increase in binge-watching with the introduction of streaming services, TV series are now more often published one season at a time.
Many 2022 films, like the DCEU soft reboot Peacemaker and the MCU’s Moon Knight, have reverted to weekly installments with great success.
From May through September 2022, these are the most anticipated shows.
Hulu’s Conversations With Friends
Few TV series this year are more eagerly awaited as Hulu’s adaptation of Sally Rooney’s Conversations With Friends, after the runaway early-season success of Normal People.
When the show premieres later this year, it will certainly spark lots of social media watercooler moments as it weaves a complicated love web between two college kids and an older literary couple in Dublin.
Ms. Marvel is set to premiere on Disney+ on June 8th.
Ms. Marvel will be the next entry in the MCU, after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and will introduce the titular hero to the series ahead of the next film The Marvels.
