As we make out way 2022, one thing is clear – there has never been more TV.

Now, is it all good? No. Is it all worthwhile? Also no. But there’s no disputing the fact that we are awash in more options than we have ever had before when it comes to the small screen.

The lion’s share of that massive growth comes, of course, from the expansive array of streaming services that are available to us. So many outlets, competing for our eyeballs.

There are so many new shows coming to streamers, in fact, that for the first time in the ongoing history of The Maine Edge’s New to View TV preview series, we will not be looking at any shows from the traditional broadcast networks. That isn’t to say that there will be none – all of the networks have new material arriving in the coming weeks – but considering the sheer mass of offerings from other outlets, I thought I’d try something different.

The vast majority of shows we’re looking at this time around come from streamers, with a smattering of offerings from cable outlets like HBO, Starz and the like. And as usual, these are all new shows making their premieres – obviously, there are some eagerly anticipated returning shows, but we’re all about what’s new here.

As to whether any of these debuts have staying power? Well, that remains to be seen. Regardless, here are 22 new shows taking their initial bows over the course of the next couple of months.
