Top 22 New Shows of 2022: #9

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. It’s always nice to check in midway through the television season to reflect back on all the calendar year introduced us to. As 2022 closes out and 2023 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

There was plenty of pressure for the prequel to “Game of Thrones” to be anywhere near as good as the highly-acclaimed original, but this show managed to build itself up and somehow be even better than it by the end of season one. Multiple actresses delivering astonishing regal performances enhanced this show that somehow felt more accessible and comprehensible than its predecessor, and will soon return for a second season and likely much more beyond that. Watch it now on HBO Max.

Best Episode: “We Light the Way
Pilot Review | House of the Dragon
