Of course I had to do a favorite shows of 2022 post. While I also haven’t watched that many shows compared to previous years, I do think I have more than enough to write this post haha. I will only include shows that have had a season this year. And like we did we our favorite books, I’m going to narrow it down to my top 10. It’s going to be hard, but I can do it haha. Let’s jump in!
10. First Kill
I really liked the short story this was based on. There aren’t a lot of anthologies I read, but I did like Vampires Never Get Old (for the most part at least). And V.E. Schwab’s story was definitely one I liked. So it was amazing when it got made into a tv show. I really enjoyed First Kill on Netflix and it was watched a lot I believe. Unfortunately it didn’t get picked up for a second season.
9. The Lincoln Lawyer
I adored this show! The movie was great, but the show was even better. I liked the characters, the actors did a great job and the plot was good as well. There will be a second season, they started filming at the end of 2022. I’m super excited for it and I might just pick up the books this show was based on to tie me over.
8. Never Have I Ever
It took me awhile but I finally watched the third season of Never Have I Ever at the end of 2022. I really like this show, even though our main character can make all the wrong decisions over and over again. This third season you can really see the character development and I can’t wait for the next season.
7. Dead To Me
I have cried so hard during the final season! This show is amazing, it is a lot different from anything I was expecting when I first started watching it but I just couldn’t stop. And I binged this final season as well. Even though I didn’t want it to end, I just couldn’t pace myself. The friendship at the centre of the show is simply a work of art.
6. The Recruit
I really enjoy Noah’s acting so when he shared his newest show The Recruit on instagram I decided to take a look. And I was not expecting to find a show I loved so much. This was a great ‘spy’ show, it had a great storyline, it was funny and I binged it in no time. There better be a second season!
As a big fan of the Heartstopper graphic novels I couldn’t wait for the Netflix show. And I was not disappointed! This was done so well and I loved it a lot. There are so many moments that are straight from the graphic novels and it was perfect. I can’t wait for the next season.
4. Black Bird
Another show I started because of an actor haha. I really enjoy Taron Egerton’s work and that meant I wanted to watch Black Bird. Wow! This was incredible. The acting was all mind blowing. This story is pretty horrifying but at the same time it was so well done. I would recommend it to everyone!
3. Only Murders In The Building
This was one of my favorites last year as well haha. This second season did not disappoint! Like I said last year, this show has a vibe that is hard to explain. I love the murder podcast aspect (obviously) but I think the dynamic between the main characters is what makes this such a great show. If you haven’t watched this yet, I would highly, highly recommend it!
This is probably one of the most talked about shows lately. And it’s in my top 3 as well haha. I adored this show so much! The Adams Family has always been fun but I wasn’t a big fan of it. It was just something that was there. However, now…. There will be a second season and I just can’t wait for it. This was pretty much perfection, the story, the characters, the soundtrack, everything!
1. Criminal Minds: Evolution
There was no way this wasn’t going to be my number one pick. I have watched Criminal Minds for years and have always loved it. It was a very sad day when it was announced that it was going to end and I just had to live with rewatching it. But then there was news of a bit of a renewal! And in November we got it. There will be a new episode every week, there is currently a mid season break that is killing me. This season there is an season long plot with a very interesting serial killer, who we get to see a little bit of every week as well. It’s just so cool. I love seeing my favorite characters and I hope it won’t be just this season.
And those were my favorite 2022 tv shows! Did I miss any good ones? What do you think of my picks? Let me know in the comments!
