There are going to be quite a few shows coming out in Fall 2022 that will keep us glued to our seats even more than usual, from the Lord of the Rings prequel, The Rings of Power to some less advertised but promising new creations like The Patient.

Keep reading for our list of the 5 must-watch shows coming up in the next few months.

Tolkien’s universe for the screen by using not only the original book trilogy but also its many appendices.

The show will be run by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay and is to be released exclusively on Amazon beginning on September 2.

A new mini-series called The Patient is set to release on August 30, 2022 for FX on Hulu. It’s about a therapist whose patient turns out to be a serial killer.

The therapist will be portrayed off-type by Steve Carrell and the killer will be played by the Irish actor, Domhnall Gleason (best known as the villain, Admiral Hux, in the Star Wars sequel trilogy). Fans of limited-run psychological thriller series should be excited.

It wouldn’t be a list of new shows without at least one entry from Disney’s seemingly endless stream of new licensed content. For the next couple of months, the biggest release is going to be She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.

The show will be about Jennifer Walters (played by Tatiana Maslany), a lawyer who occasionally turns into the 6’7” powerhouse green protector-goddess, She-Hulk. Not everyone on Twitter has been thrilled with the CGI so far, but the show is still one of the year’s most anticipated.

The Takeaway

Television is now more important than ever as a medium of artistic exchange and entertainment for the sheer fact that the pandemic has made so many of us more obsessed with it than ever before. The shows listed above aren’t a comprehensive list of the upcoming debuts, but they should serve as a starting point for anyone looking for the next great shows as they come out.
