From Netflix, to Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max, and more, here are the most anticipated upcoming TV shows and movies for 2022.

Most Anticipated for Netflix

  • Bridgerton

Desde los radiantes salones de baile de Mayfair hasta los palacios aristocráticos de Park Lane y más allá, la serie desvela un mundo seductor y suntuoso repleto de intrincadas reglas y dramáticas luchas por el poder, en el que nadie se encuentra nunca en terreno firme. En el corazón del espectáculo está la poderosa familia Bridgerton. Este divertido, ingenioso, audaz e inteligente grupo de ocho hermanos muy unidos, deberá navegar por el mercado matrimonial en busca de romance, aventura y amor.

    Coming to the platform on March 25, 2022, Season 2 of “Bridgerton” will definitely attract more viewers during its debut. As we have reported before, the series ranks as the number one most-viewed English-language Netflix original series by hours viewed within 28 days of its release. To get fans even more pumped, there will be a pop-up event called “The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience” all across various cities in March that will take guests into the world of the Regency-era.

  • Stranger Things

    15 de julio de 2016

    A raíz de la desaparición de un niño, un pueblo desvela un misterio relacionado con experimentos secretos, fuerzas sobrenaturales aterradoras y una niña muy extraña.

    Since “Stranger Things” has such a big cult following, it’s very likely that the series will gain viewership in the Summer of 2022, when Season 4 debuts. Especially since Netflix recently launched the “Stranger Things” mobile games which may attract a newer audience of gamers who have yet to stream the show. The show has also ranked among Netflix’s top 10 all-time most-watched English-language series for two of its seasons thus far.

  • The Crown

    4 de noviembre de 2016

  • Spiderhead

    17 de junio de 2022

    A prisoner in a state-of-the-art penitentiary begins to question the purpose of the emotion-controlling drugs he’s testing for a pharmaceutical genius.

Also coming to the platform is “The Gray Man” which will be released in the summer and has A-listers Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans starring which will without a doubt be a crowd-pleaser. The film marks the first blockbuster that the Russo brothers have directed since “Avengers: Endgame,” so it will be a hit among action lovers.

Another title is “The Sandman,” which its release date has yet to be announced. Based on Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman,” comic book fanatics are looking forward to the DC Entertainment show.

Most Anticipated for Prime Video

  • El señor de los anillos: Los anillos de poder

    1 de septiembre de 2022

    Coming to the platform in just a couple of weeks (January 18), the spinoff of the binge-worthy classic “How I Met Your Mother” will be one of the highlights among Hulu originals this year.

    Se centra en Obi-Wan Kenobi 10 años después del final de las Guerras Clon, donde enfrentó su mayor derrota; la caída y corrupción de su mejor amigo y aprendiz de Jedi, Anakin Skywalker se convirtió en el malvado Lord Sith Darth Vader.

    While the release date is still to be decided, the expectations for “Obi-Wan Kenobi” are high, considering how well “The Mandalorian” has been able to do for Disney+. Fans will watch as Ewan McGregor reprises his role as Obi-Wan 10 years after “Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith,” which grossed over $800 million globally at the box office. This is especially good for Disney+ because it will likely bring in an older audience which they have been aiming for.

    Another anticipated title that doesn’t have a set release date, “She-Hulk” will star Tatiana Maslany as a lawyer named Jennifer Walters who acquires Hulk powers after receiving a transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo).

    It’s safe to say that a lot of those with Peter Pan syndrome will tune in to this one. Although the release date is unknown, the live-action remake of Disney’s 1953 animated classic “Peter Pan” will star Jude Law as Captain Hook and will remind Disney+ subscribers how to feel like a kid again.
