What Were the Most Streamed Shows in 2022?

By  | 

Even now, strict, albeit occasionally over-stretched, epidemic measures are still not helping the situation in cinemas to improve spectacularly, with audiences preferring to watch films at home, and streaming services are continuing to expand.

More and more sequels got aired, and fans are grateful. 2022 was an excellent year for OTT streaming platforms. ExpressVPN’s piece reveals this year’s most successful series.

What Were the Most Streamed Shows in 2022?

1. Euphoria 2

The two-and-a-half-year wait is over, with a new season of one of 2019’s most anticipated series, Euphoria. The covid-19 pandemic has repeatedly disrupted the filming of the second season, so we didn’t see the cast until January 2022. The second season was aired on HBO MAX.

2. Peaky Blinders 6

The British series The Peaky Blinders did end with his season, the team behind the series announced on Twitter. The sixth season was released in February. But there’s no need to say a tearful goodbye to Thomas Shelby and his family, as the half-dozen seasons will be crowned with a standalone film in 2023 – a kind of conclusion. If you want to catch up, you can watch the previous seasons on Netflix.

3. Stranger Things 4

It’s been a long wait for the fourth season of this series of child actors who’ve grown up in the meantime, but in 2022 we could travel back in time a few decades. Producer Shawn Levy admitted that the season had taken much longer to complete than previously hoped but said it was worth the wait to continue the series.

4. Ozark 4

The following season of the American thriller series was released on 21 January 2022. This is the last season of the Netflix show, split into two parts, and will consist of fourteen episodes. The series was originally going to be a ten-part series, but the thriller, which has been running since 2017, will be completed in seven episodes.

5. Umbrella Academy 3

The third season of The Umbrella Academy arrived in 2022. Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheenan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, and Ritu Arya are all returning to the series.

6. The Crown 5

The Crown was initially planned to be five seasons long, but Netflix has confirmed that this isn’t the end after all. The streaming platform has already announced several new cast members, despite the delays caused by the Crown virus outbreak. The fifth season of the series was released in November 2022.

7. Bridgerton 2

The Bridgerton Family was Netflix’s most-watched series for almost a year, only to be overtaken by South Korean hit Squid Game. The second season of the British romance series did arrive on 25 March and focused on Anthony Bridgerton, the eldest Bridgerton brother. The second season began filming in the spring of 2021 and finished in November.

8. Killing Eve 4

The fourth and final season of Killing Eve, a hugely thrilling and addictive killing spree series, was announced before the third was even released. Not surprisingly, the lead actors (Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer) have won numerous awards for their performances in the production. Filming started in June 2021, and the series’ final episode will be an eight-part series, as in previous seasons. The first part of the final chapter was released on February 27. (Previous seasons are available on HBO GO.)

9. The Handmaid’s Tale 5

The Handmaid’s Tale, Hulu’s 2017 series, returned for the fifth season. The series’ unique atmosphere has won many fans, so the series may not be completed yet.

10. Russian Doll 2

Natasha Lyonne performed of a lifetime as Nadia Vulvokov in the first season of the 2019 series: no character was more at home than the New York protagonist, who is always on the run but has a good sense of sarcastic humor. Filming was due to start in the spring of 2020, but due to the pandemic, work started a year later.

In summary

We can’t complain about this year’s series; everyone could find something close to their interests.
