The 14 Most Anticipated Netflix Original Series of 2022


I’m no fortune-teller, but I do own hoop earrings and a lot of scarves and know what you’re going to be watching on Netflix in 2022. You will meet a tall dark stranger and binge The Crown this year. You will be begging everyone you meet to catch up on Mike Flanagan’s latest spooky series so you can talk about that ending. You won’t be ashamed of how much you like Too Hot To Handle, it’s fine!

There are some very glitzy and star-studded new shows coming to Netflix in 2022, taking on famous book adaptations and IRL scandals alike, but I’m almost more excited about the shows that are returning. It feels like I’m getting to see my besties again. A couple of Netflix faves that didn’t drop a new season in 2021 because ~the debacle that was 2020~ put them on pause are finally ready after what feels like forever.

Start marking your calendar, because these are the releases I predict you won’t want to miss.
