The year is ending and we continue to look back. If we recently talked to you about the best movies of the year, now it’s time to review the quality of the best series of 2022. A year with interesting fantasy prequels, new seasons of cult series and a greater number of series created by women.
2022 has been the year of disappointing series such as the vaunted and ridiculous adaptation of The Sandmanthe sultry She-Hulk, the disappointing season 6 of Elite either resident Evilbut also of very interesting proposals such as Irma Vep either Self defense Y of hits What Dahmer.
blockbusters rings of power Y the house of the dragonThey came loaded with absurd polemics and the Spanish series once again showed that we have a lot to tell and we know very well how to do it.
2022 has been a year in which series proposals (or as they now call it: content) seemed to have no end. It was difficult, if not impossible, to keep up to date with the productions of all the platforms. Many were just noisebut still we have been able to write an interesting list of the best series of 2022, so you can enjoy the best thing that has been released this year.
The best series of 2022
The second season of The White Lotushas been one of the funniest and most addictive series of the year. The acid criticism of “snobbery” and wealth, mixed with the beautiful settings of Sicily and the interpretations of Aubrey Plaza and Jennifer Coolidge, has generated a delicious cocktail with which to end 2022.
Easyby Anna R. Costa (Movistar Plus+)
Controversial and free adaptation of the novel by Cristina Morales about four cousins with disabilities who live in a supervised flat in Barceloneta. A series as raw as it is funny that portrays a reality that is never talked about enough and that contains the best interpretation of the year, that of Natalia de Molina as Margarita.
The definitive series on the suffocating days of work in a restaurant kitchen. Realistic proposal about the good and the terrifying that the hotel industry hides. A series with wonderfully written characters, from a gender perspective more than successful and with the ability to make us feel the suffocation suffered by its protagonist.
Awarded at Cannes for best series. The lesson It poses different dilemmas that we should finish developing in our heads. From the classrooms of an Israeli institute we will see the clash of ideas between a teacher and his student and the different ways to defend them.

The creator of the great Sherlock introduces us to a charming prisoner, wonderfully played by stanley tucci, who, from his cell, receives different “clients” to solve a mystery for them. So that, like a detective, find the solution to a mysterious crime or find someone who has disappeared. A great miniseries that can remind The green Mile and to the best David Fincher.
Amanda Seyfried, who won an Emmy for her performance, plays Elizabeth Holmes, a visionary woman who built an empire from scratch and ended up destroying it due to her greed and ambition. A work that reveals the critical scrutiny that a woman suffers when she reaches power and the harsh consequences for being wrong and losing it.
Wonderful series about the sorority of a group of friends of those who do not meet. The best of Sánchez Arévalo since Cousins. Hats off interpretations, a delicious script, and authentic and interesting visual proposals for a series that has not been talked about enough and that deserves, on its own merits, to be on this list of the best series of 2022.
On May 17, 2019, same-sex marriage was approved in Taiwan. The fragrance of first love It is the first Taiwanese series starring two lesbian women. since its legalization. It tells us the story of two homosexual women who could not enjoy freedom, nor demonstrate their own nature.

Excellent feminist series about the place of women in a world ruled by men; about political violence and the digital sexual violence suffered by many women of any social stratum. Privacy shows the disastrous consequences of this type of violence and why often the victims do not dare to denounce it.
Candyby Nick Antosca and Robin Veith (Disney+)
One of the best true crime a year loaded with them. Jessica Biel, in one of her best performancesputs himself in Candy’s shoes to tell us the true story of Candace Montgomery and the murder of Betty Gore in Texas in 1980. A brutal ax murder during the same year that The glowKubrick’s horror classic with Nicholson, was released in theaters.
severanceby Dan Erickson (AppleTV+)
This dystopia in a time not much more distant than ours is one of the best series of 2022. A truly original and fascinating work in which all departments are placed in excellence. A series influenced by Marxist alienation theories. Theories that exposed the idea of labor exploitation as a necessary condition for the maintenance of the capitalist system. That exposed the false idea of freedom of choice when it comes to working or not. We are looking forward to seeing its second season.
British miniseries of the genre true crimeabout the true story of Susan and Christopher Edwards and the murder of William and Patricia Wycherley in the 1990s, for which they both ended up being arrested in 2014. Olivia Colman and David Thewlis are amazing as the killers. The creators of the series use an interesting and risky audiovisual narrative with which they play and honor the seventh art. An essential 2022 series.
