Sky TV | What's coming up in 2022?
Our pick of the very best series Sky TV customers can look forward to this year.
Sky will be the home of plenty of fantastic TV series over the course of 2022 so here's five shows that we can't wait to binge.
House of the Dragon
After the hugely disappointing final season of Game of Thrones, there’s a cautious sense of optimism surrounding its first prequel series House of the Dragon. Set 200 years before the events of the main show, it’ll explore the bloody, fiery history of the Targaryens and their many dragons.
More specifically, it’s set to focus on the family’s brutal civil war and the events that led up to it, a pivotal event in the lore of the franchise known as the Dance of the Dragons. Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, Olivia Cooke, Matt Smith, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint and Eve Best are all set to star.
The Gilded Age
This brand-new drama from the creator of Downton Abbey is set in the 1880s during the titular period of extravagance and huge economic change in the US. We follow young orphan Marian (Louisa Johnson) who journeys to live with her two wealthy aunts (Christine Baranski and Cynthia Nixon) in New York City.
Accompanied by new friend and writer Peggy (Denée Benton), Marian soon finds herself embedded in a fierce social war between her traditional old money family and their newly made neighbours, ruthless railway tycoon George (Morgan Spector) and his ambitious wife Bertha (Carrie Coon).
Barry season 3
Another one of HBO’s shows that’s been away for over a year, the brilliantly dark comedy Barry also faced several filming delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Season 3 is set to pick up with the titular hitman turned actor (Bill Hader) after he killed several gang members at the former temple.
It’s likely that his relationship with his self-centered mentor and acting coach Gene (Henry Winkler) will be forever changed, after criminal associate Fuches (Stephen Root) revealed that Barry is responsible for murdering his long-time girlfriend Detective Moss (Paula Newsome).
The Flight Attendant season 2
With its gripping central mystery, dark humor and messy, likeable protagonist in Cassie (played by The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco), The Flight Attendant was one of 2021’s most binge-worthy series. A second season was quickly greenlit in December 2020 just days after its finale aired.
It’s not yet known exactly what plotlines this second outing, which is again expected to consist of eight episodes, will dive into. With Cassie now living in L.A, attempting to stay sober and operating as a CIA asset in her spare time however, there’s plenty of intriguing possibilities.
Euphoria season 2
The dark teen drama Euphoria which stars Zendaya as drug-addicted high school student Rue returns after nearly a year and half absence this month. This next lot of episodes was originally set to begin filming in March 2020 but was delayed until the summer due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Not too much is known about its overarching plot but the recently released trailer suggests plenty more trouble. Despite going back to support meetings, Rue is now using again and seen getting into dealing alongside long-time supplier and friend Fezco (Angus Cloud).
