We have completed another year of TV viewing and 2022 did not disappoint by delivering some standout projects. The wide variety of streaming services that are currently available—including Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Paramount+, Peacock, Disney+, Apple TV+, and Amazon Prime Video, among others—often leaves us with too many options to watch (and even higher bill than a cable subscription). But that also means there was no shortage of excellent TV shows to dive into in 2022.
From sitcoms to dramas, this year provided outstanding, top-of-the-line content with some remarkable performances from our favorite TV stars. People couldn’t stop talking about new shows like The Bear and Abbott Elementary. While the return of highly anticipated fan favorites like Better Call Saul, Euphoria, and Atlanta also had people glued to their screens week after week. Superhero shows also had a strong year with the debut of Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, Peacemaker, and more, while Andor was one of the most superior shows of the last 12 months.
It is our duty year after year to scour every streaming service and TV channel to find the best the entertainment world has to offer, and this year was no different. While some of the shows we loved were highly popular and among the most watched, there are other less obvious titles that we highly recommend you watch before the year is through if you haven’t yet. Check out our list below for our selections of the best 15 TV shows of 2022.
