2022 Is A Sad Year, Because Of TV Show Cancelations

We got extremely excellent at saying goodbye to TV this year, with more than 90 shows showing their final episodes in 2021 – and we’ll be even better in 2022!

Before we ring in the new year, we’ve compiled a list of the nearly 30 (and counting!) Popular tv series that will end in 2022, are all described in the list below.

It’s a mix of old favorites like Grace and Frankie on Netflix and ABC’s black-ish, as well as newer shows like AMC’s Kevin Can F**k Himself and Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga. A couple of syndicated daytime shows and at least one beloved children’s program are all well-represented in the graduating class, as are broadcast (This Is Us), cable (Animal Kingdom), and streaming (Dead to Me).

And the year will get off to a busy start: The Expanse on Prime Video, HBO Max’s Search Party, and Netflix’s After Life, to name a few, will all have series finales in January.

We don’t have a premiere and/or finale dates for every departing series just yet, but we’ll be updating this list with fresh information throughout the year, so bookmark it for the most up-to-date information. In the meantime, take a look at the photographs below for a reminder of what’s ending in 2022, and then let us know which series you’ll miss the most in the comments!

At the end of Season 18, DeGeneres informed her audience, “I always follow my instincts.” “It’s time, according to my instincts.” As a comic, I’ve always recognized the significance of… timing.

OWN has renewed Queen Sugar for Season 7, which will also be its final season, just ahead of its Season 6 finale in November. In early 2022, production will commence in New Orleans.
