Tudum 2022 is here in all its glory! Netflix today held its second global fan event and announced all the new TV shows coming to the OTT platform in the future. While some popular TV series like The Crown and Bridgerton return for another season, fans are equally excited to start watching new shows like Wednesday and The Recruit. With that said, let’s take a look at all the new TV series and upcoming seasons announced during Netflix Tudum 2022.
Netflix Upcoming TV Shows List (2022)
Here, we have included a short description along with the trailers for all the TV series that will be released on Netflix in the coming weeks or months. Let’s dive in.
Note: Some of the TV show descriptions might include spoilers or character names, we suggest you tread with caution.
We already know that Squid Game Season 2 development is currently underway. Squid Game’s director and creator Hwang Dong-hyuk is working on the script for the second season, so we didn’t get any news on that, unfortunately. However, we did get an unreleased Season 1 clip, which presumably shows the Front Man (Hwang In-ho) coming back home to refill his fish bowl and his presumed-dead brother Jun-ho (Wi Ha-Joon) spying on his apartment from across the street.
So we can expect the story for Squid Game Season 2 to carry forward the story from Season 1, helping us unfold the mystery of the games.
Everyone’s beloved Geralt of Rivia will return to Netflix for another season in Summer 2023. After nearly 1.5 years, you will be able to meet Geralt (Henry Cavill), Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), Ciri (Freya Allan), and some amazing new characters next year. Cavill, along with his two co-stars Anya and Freya, appeared during the Tudum 2022 event to share some Season 3 art and announce the release timeline. We didn’t get any trailers, so we can’t say how the story continues from here on. More demon slaying is in store soon, though.
Release Date: Summer 2023
The Witcher Blood Origin
Before we meet Geralt again, Netflix will introduce us to the origin story of the Continent with The Witcher: Blood Origin. This is a prequel TV series, which takes place nearly 1200 years before the events of The Witcher.
We will see three warrior elves (Michelle Yeoh, Laurence O’Fuarain, and Sophia Brown) take part in the creation of the first Witcher. And the story will eventually lead up to the Conjunction of the Spheres, a cataclysm that will affect the elf, human, and monster worlds.
Release Date: December 25

You will see the tumultuous lives of the royal family members in the 1990s, as per rumors. This means we can expect to witness the story of the divorces of three of the queen’s children, along with Princess Diana’s untimely demise in a 1997 car crash.
