Although we are stuck living within the confines of a pandemic, 2021 has given us some great TV shows to binge on. We escaped to lands near and far and followed the lives of a plethora of colorful characters.
According to TV Time, the viewer and viewer tracking app of Whip Media, which has 19 million users worldwide, TV fans are most excited about the following new series. It should be noted that only series with fixed release dates were included in the lists.
Several highly anticipated titles aren’t listed just because their premiere dates are currently not set in stone. For example, the upcoming HBO Max Game of thrones prequel Dragon house is clearly not listed even though it is one of the most anticipated shows of the new year. This series was created by Ryan J. Condal and George RR Martin, author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels which were adapted into the Emmy Award winning series. This new show will tell the story of the Targaryen Civil War which took place approximately 300 years before the events depicted in Had.
It’s also important to note that cable networks are at a bit of a disadvantage when competing with streaming giants like Netflix with its 214 million paying subscribers binge-watching its content. Showtime is a perfect example. The cable company offers some of the best series on TV, but with around 36 million subscribers worldwide, its shows don’t get the same number of viewers. Thus, brilliant series as a new favorite Yellow jackets, which will be the subject of a second season (thank you!), may not attract the same attention, even if it is one of the most captivating series on the market. And the sixth season of Billion is the most anticipated yet for the beloved series but again it doesn’t get the same level of attention from a numbers standpoint
Apple TV + also offers amazing series such as Ted lasso, which is getting a third season although an exact premiere date has yet to be confirmed. The morning show is another favorite and fans are keeping their fingers crossed for a third season although it has yet to be announced.
As for those series with confirmed premiere dates for 2022, there is a lot of fantasy, drama, and a host of shows based on popular video games. A few to watch are coming from Netflix resident Evil, The last of us on HBO Max and the new Halo series that will air on Paramount + in the New Year.
Here are the series viewers intend to watch, although this doesn’t always translate to actual views.

Disney + has several new series that originate from Marvel, including she-hulk, Ms. marvel, Moon knight and Secret invasion. And the next one from disney Obi wan kenobi The limited series, with Ewan McGregor reprising his role as Jedi Master and Hayden Christensen from Darth Vader, is also among next year’s most anticipated shows. by netflix The sand man, based on the popular ’90s comic book of the same name from Neil Gaiman and DC Comics, is another series that gets fans excited.
