It's not just that there are a lot of upcoming TV shows in fall 2022, it's that this fall promises a lot of great shows. Audiences are no longer limited to the big five networks or the big two streamers - the 2022 fall lineup is packed with series premieres from Showtime to Syfy and Peacock to PBS, with something for everyone.
New television series in 2022 range from reboots and revivals like Quantum Leap and American Gigolo to fresh family dramas like Monarch and gorgeous new animated series like Entergalactic. Some of the most anticipated shows of 2022 are also due this fall, like The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power. The Amazon Prime Video fantasy series is set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, evoking a fan-favorite film franchise and using story from Tolkien's appendices.
Joined by shows like The Winchesters and Willow, 2022's fall lineup is packed with nostalgia in the form of expanded stories. But, it's not all the familiar made new and there are plenty of sparkling new stories to be told - from rooted-in-reality dramas such as Alaska Daily and Fire Country to silly but poignant horror comedies like Reginald the Vampire.
In the heat of summer, the coolness of autumn all seems like a far future that will never come, but you can satisfy your anticipation by voting up the shows you're most looking forward to. It's your turn to decide what the most anticipated TV shows of fall. Then, see what episodes (so far) have stood out as the best of 2022.
