The Most Anticipated Series Returning on HBO Max in 2022
Westworld Season 4
Westworld is truly one of the most groundbreaking dystopian science fiction in television history. There is nothing that beats the excellence of the first season, however, the following seasons are doing their best to stand out equally. With an ensemble cast, the series has many accolades to its name.
Euphoria Season 2
Sam Levinson’s genius teen drama that won Zendaya a Primetime Emmy is back with a second season. Based on the Hebrew TV series of the same name, the ensemble cast includes Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, and Colman Domingo.

The Flight Attendant Season 2
The mystery thriller that was nominated for the Golden Globes and Primetime Emmy returns with a second season. Given the first season ended with Kaley Cuoco’s Cassie becoming a spy/agent of sorts, we can assume that next season will focus on this trope.

Hacks Season 2
Jean Smart’s comedy-drama Hacks created by Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs, and Jen Statsky, is HBO’s Primetime Emmy hit.

Barry Season 3
Alec Berg and Bill Hader’s creation, the crime comedy has always been a people’s favourite and, no doubt that it is coming back for a third season now! Starring Bill Hader, Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Anthony Carrigan, Henry Winkler and others, the third season will premiere in 2022.
Raised by the Wolves Season 2
With Ridley Scott’s director’s touch that graced the first of episodes, Raised by the Wolves is the science fiction that did receive some mixed reviews but, hopefully, the second season will impress the audience.
