OK, hands up if you watched a LOT of TV in 2021.
From Succession to Selling Sunset, it was a veritable feast for the eyes.
We know we should probably get out there for a walk, but how can we when this flickering little box in the corner is so entertaining!?
2022 is shaping up to have an outstanding line-up.
Here’s what we’re most looking forward to.
Sex Education – Netflix, Series 4
This will return for a fourth round in 2022.
It’s not over for Otis and Maeve and we’re not over the Adam and Eric break-up.
Release date is yet to be confirmed and we simply cannot wait.
Ozark – Netflix, Season 4
The brilliant Netflix crime drama is back and we don’t have long to wait.
Part one of the incoming season will be released on January 21st so that’ll brighten up the greyest month of the year.
Sort of, anyway.
The money-laundering family are in more trouble than ever and we are so ready to watch the drama.
Pam and Tommy – Disney+
Disney+ is giving us a thoughtful and romantic Valentine’s Day present this year.
It’s the story of the first ever celebrity sex-tape scandal back in 1995 with Pamela Anderson (played by Lily James) and Tommy Lee (played by Sebastian Stan).
Top tip: Don’t watch this one with your mum and dad.
The Crown – Netflix, Season 5
Make way for The Crown!
It’s the jewel in the Netflix. . . err. . . crown and it’s back with a brand new and highly anticipated series.
2022 will see the release of series five and it’s the one we’re been waiting for.
The Charles and Diana (played by Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki) storyline really starts ramping up.
Bad news is, you’ll have to wait for it until November 2022.
Peaky Blinders – BBC One, Season 6
We’re certainly looking forward to the spring, and not because of the fresh green shoots and warm sunshine.
Because that’s when we expect season 6 of Peaky Blinders to drop.
In the trailer we see Tommy (played by Cillian Murphy) and others giving each other many very sinister, cold, dead-eyed stares.
The only other thing we can be sure of is that it’s coming early in 2022.
You – Netflix, Season 4
Literally the world’s worst boyfriend is still at it.
Murdering, that is.
After the shocking ending of season three, we’ve been told season four will be MORE shocking, more outrageous and more twisted than ever.
The Tourist, BBC
This new thriller stars Jamie Dornan.
Is that enough?
Well, if you need more information than that, it’s set in Australia and stars Jamie Dornan playing a man with amnesia trying to work out who he is.
Coming in January 1, 2022 so kicking the New Year off just beautifully.
The Curse – Channel 4 and Netflix
Channel 4 has released a sneaky first look at a new crime-comedy it’s rustled up for the new year but there’s something familiar about it.
A 1970’s colour palette of burnt orange and cream, a sinister looking guy with a moustache and a beautiful brunette.
The image reminded us so much of BBC1 and Netflix collab The Serpent we had to do a double-take.
Having binged the series, based on the crimes of serial killer Charles Sobhraj, who murdered young tourists in the 70s we still find images of The Serpent immensely triggering.
However, unlike The Serpent, which we still can’t think too much about, The Curse (we’re assured by Channel 4) is a comedy.
All we know so far is that it’s set not in the 70’s but in the early 80’s and follows a gang of hopeless small time crooks who, through their own stupidity and poor judgement, find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest gold heists in history.
The release date is yet to be confirmed.
Derry Girls – Channel 4, Season 3
The final instalment of the hit show is currently filming and we’re told it’ll be ready in early 2022.
Nicola Coughlan is back as Claire and the rest of the main cast will stay the same too.
Saoirse-Monica Jackson plays Erin Quinn, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell is Michelle Mallon, Louisa Harland is Orla McCool, and Dylan Llewellyn is James Maguire.
It’ make us laugh even seeing the names.
Successon – Sky Atlantic, Series 4
If you’re still reeling for the absolute perfection of season three then you’ll be comforted to know that there will be a series 4.
We have no other information for you, other than it took a year between seasons last time, so maybe December 2022?
We can dream.
The Handmaid’s Tale – Channel 4, Series 5
It’s time to return to the misery of Gilead and we can not WAIT.
That incredible finale episode where they… well, you know… they chased the Commander down in the woods to then beat him to death.
And then they sent his ring finger to his wife, the dreadful Mrs Waterford.
Anyway, we enjoyed it.
Don’t judge us.
It’s possible that series five will air in Summer 2022, but most definitely by the Autumn.
Can you wait that long…?
