New and Best Shows Coming to Netflix in 2022
Check out the upcoming TV shows Netflix has in development for release in either 2022 and beyond:

You season 4 release date
You season 3 premiered on Netflix on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021. Fans waited almost two full years for the new season, and it was well worth the wait.
Just days before You season 3 was released, Netflix surprised fans with a big announcement: You season 4. Netflix renewed the hit series starring Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti for a fourth season.
It looks like the early renewal could shed some months off the wait until You season 4. Right now, we’re expecting You season 4 to be released on Netflix at the end of 2022 (likely October, November, or December).
There are a lot of moving parts with a show like You. They change casts each season, and the new season moves to a new location. There’s some chatter You season 4 could take place in Paris. It could also take place in a small town if it follows the You books a little more closely.
We’ll have to wait and see, but the key part of that is “wait.” It’s going to be a while until we see Joe Goldberg in You season 4. Hey, at least Cardi B might be involved this time, though.
The popular Ubisoft video game will be making its way onto Netflix in a brand new series and other formats in the near future.

Netflix is moving forward with its live-action Avatar series with filming beginning in late 2021. The series is set to faithfully recreate the original Nickelodeon series following the adventure of Aang who is on a mission to defend the world from the Fire-Nation.
The development of the live-action series has not been smooth sailing. The series notably lost its original creators (who were also behind the Nick series).
Boom! Studios are adapting the popular comic series BRZRKR with Keanu Reeves set to voice the main character.
The comic book followed the immortal warrior Berzerker fighting throughout the ages.
Cabinet of Curiosities (10 After Midnight)
Creator: Guillermo del Toro
Also known as Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight, this horror anthology series will see horror stories from one of the greatest minds of the genre.

Cast: Ciara Riley Wilson, Bryana Salaz, Shiv Pai, Keyla Monterroso Mejia
On My Block came to an end with its fourth season in 2021 but we will be returning to the fictional location of Freeridge with a new story to follow.
To what extent (other than being set in the same town) this series will be connected to On My Block is unclear right now.
Locke and Key season 3 release date
Locke and Key season 2 premiered on Netflix on Friday, Oct. 22, 2021. Like You season 3, fans had to wait a super long time for Locke and Key season 2, and that was mostly because of the pandemic.
Locke and Key premiered on Netflix in February 2020, one month before all TV and film production shut down for at least six months. The cast and crew were finally able to get back at it, but it was clear that fans were in for a long wait.
Well, that good news is that might not happen with Locke and Key season 3. There’s a really good chance we could see the new season soon-ish.
Locke and Key season 3 has already wrapped production. The cast and crew started filming the new season this spring and wrapped this summer. That’s the good news.
Now, it’s just whether or not Netflix wants to roll out the new season so close to Locke and Key season 2. If that happens, we could see Locke and Key season 3 on Netflix as early as February 2022.
It’s much more likely that Locke and Key season 3 will be released on Netflix in late summer or fall 2022, but fans definitely won’t have to wait 18 months between seasons this time.
The Green Beret’s Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse
Creators: Daril Fannin, Shawn Vance
Cast: Kristen Schaal, Flula Borg, Yasmine Aker, Emily Maddison
Produced by Peter Berg and Matt Damon, this comedy series will follow Vance who “plays a comic version of himself as he tries to survive through various apocalyptic scenarios, including a nuclear attack, supervolcano eruption, or of course a zombie attack.”
Confirmed for 2022 release.
Showrunner: Andrew Dabb
Cast: Madeline Zima, Jaime Ray Newman, Kevin Corrigan
Netflix will be adapting the Grendel comic book fantasy series that follows a talented assassin who is looking to avenge the death of a lost love.

Kings of America
Creator: Jess Kimball Leslie
Cast: Glenn Close, Amy Adams
Mini-series from one of the producers of HBO’s Succession that tells the story of three powerful women whose lives were intertwined.
Ozark season 4 release date
The Ozark season 4 release date has been announced! You can watch the first half of Ozark season 4 on Jan. 21, 2022.
Netflix is starting the year with a bang!
Netflix also announced some big news about Ozark season 4 at TUDUM. We learned that the new season is coming in 2022, not 2021 as we anticipated.
Netflix also confirmed the full season is coming in 2022. There was some hope that the first half of season 4 would be released in late 2021, but that’s not happening.
It’s very likely that the second half of the final season coming in the late summer or fall of 2022, especially with the first half of the season arriving in January.
Ozark is very popular with Emmy voters, so it makes sense that we’ll see the first half of season 4 on Netflix before May 31, 2022. Then, we’ll see the second half of the season after that, likely in the late summer or early fall to qualify for the 2023 Emmys.
Ozark season 4 has been in production since November 2020. Production is ending in October 2021.
