As we usher in the new year’s energy, so does our broadcast platform—doing the best they could to keep our daily lives entertained with the best tv shows premiere for the whole of 2022. Streaming giants such as Disney+, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu have geared up to serve us with a good mix of drama, action and comedy. Personally, for me, my pick would be the Pam & Tommy series which features Lily James and Sebastian Stan’s epic transformation to be Hollywood’s infamous real-life ex-couple Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, (been waiting since last year so don’t mind me). 

For the OGs How I Met Your Mother fans, the new series which is angled to the female’s point of view will be narrated by the one and only Hillary Duff titled How I Met Your Father, but no, the two series have nothing tied together. Also, we have a new tea on Bridgertons’ Season 2, Stranger Things and all of the best new TV shows that are certified binge-watch worthy. So whew, consider our 2022 packed with good ass tv series. 

Here are Glitz’s choices for the best tv series to watch in Singapore this year! 

The Best New TV Shows This 2022

Pam and Tommy

Given this tv series is set to be 18sx, it’s kind of weird they aired it on family-friendly platform, Disney+. But anyhow, ever since the cast photos were released last year and the fans (me included) were shocked to the core to see how accurate the casts are, we literally cannot wait any longer. The story centres around real-life event where Pamela and Tommy’s infamous sex tape were ‘’robbed’’ from their consent.

How I Met Your Father 

You’ve watched How I Met Your Mother, now get ready for, How I Met Your Father. And no, as mentioned earlier these two series are not tied up together. The new series will be centred towards the modern world where the main character, Hillary Duff, tells her son a story of how she met his father. Little spoilers: it involves some dating app. Oh!

Release date: TBA

The Lord of The Rings Series 

C’mon who doesn’t know of these trilogy, blockbuster movies which were adapted from J.R.R Tolkien sold out novels? We have ‘’graduated’’ from the big screen fandom, now they’re taking it to the streaming platform, Amazon Prime. The series is set to take place thousands of years before the epic event of The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings trilogy. It’s like taking a walk in the memory lane. 

Release date: September 2

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

The House of Dragons

Another middle-aged drama series, House of Dragons will premiere sometime in the summer on HBO series. As the name suggests, it is easy to guess that the series is heavily tied up with the famous Game of Thrones series. The new shows will also take place hundreds of years before the first GOT event. So between Game of Thrones and LotR, which historical and mythical region would you live in? Just asking. 

Release date: TBA

Bridgerton Season 2

When the first season aired early last year, everyone went crazy over the casts. This year, the gossip antic of Lady Whistledown continues as Daphne’s older brother Anthony is set to have his character and love story on blast! So for Anthony lovers, rejoice. There is no news on whether Daphne and Simon will have their cameo, but we’ll just wait (not patiently).

Ms. Marvel 

Last year, Marvel had launched their ‘’nuclear war’’ by producing top characters such as Wanda, Hawkeye, Loki, Bucky and Sam with their own TV series. This year, the gifts continue with Ms. Marvel character taking up the young avengers storylines. Kamala Khan, a 16 years old Pakistani American from New Jersey struggled to find her place in the world but that all changes when she acquires superpowers like the heroes she’s admired for years (yes, you guessed it. Brie Larson’s character, Captain Marvel).

She-Hulk

The words She Hulk printed against a city skyline background.

Ouh, it didn’t stop there though. Another Marvel goodness, She-Hulk is set to air with Tatiana Maslany playing the big green She-Hulk herself. For those who are confused, She-Hulk is the cousin to the beloved Bruce Banner, The Hulk which is famously portrayed by Mark Ruffalo. Whether or not the man himself will make a cameo, that’s yet to be determined.

Ready to get swept off your feet with Business Proposal, a romantic comedy-drama series which is led by Kim Se-Jeong and Ahn Hyo-Seop.

She disguised herself as her friend during a blind date, however unknowingly her date Kang Tae-Moo (Ahn Hyo-Seop) was actually the CEO of the company where she currently works.
