Thanks to What’s On Netflix

All of the TV shows we can’t wait to return:

stranger things

Although season four of Netflix show Stranger Things was all set to land in 2020, production was postponed due to the Coronvirus pandemic.
It was later confirmed Volume 1 of Stranger Things season four will land on 27th May 2022, with Volume 2 landing on 1st July.

Clarksons Farm

Following a massively successful first series, Jeremy Clarkson confirmed in July 2021 that his show, Clarkson’s Farm, had been renewed for a second series on Amazon Prime.

Although there’s no release date just yet, filming has started.

Emily In Paris

Following the success of series one and two, Netflix confirmed a third and fourth series of hit Netflix show Emily In Paris!

At the moment, we don’t have any start dates, but filming for series three is due to begin in 2022.


BBC bosses confirmed in March 2022 that Suranne Jones will reprise her role as DCI Amy Silva in griping drama Vigil for series two.

The cast and crew are set to return to Scotland to film series two later this year, so keep your eyes peeled for any release dates.

Squid Game

Another roaring Netflix success, Squid Game had us all hooked when it was released in 2021. Breaking records and topping streaming charts, the show proved incredibly popular and after THAT ending, left us all wanting more.

Show creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has confirmed that season two is officially happening, and has even hinted of ‘talks’ over a third season!


Season one of BBC drama Bodyguard, starring Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes, had the nation hooked with a whopping 17 million tuning in to the series finale.

Although creator Jed Mercurio confirmed there’s going to be a second series, the BBC are yet to announce when it will arrive, but we expect it will be late 2022.


With the almighty cliff-hanger ending of You series two, fans were over the moon when Netflix confirmed a third series, which arrived on Friday 15th October.

As if that wasn’t enough, bosses have now confirmed a fourth series of the hit show, although we don’t have a release just yet. However, filming did start in March 2022!

dead to me

In July 2020, Netflix confirmed American series Dead To Me will return for a third and final series! Will any of the fan theories turn out to be true?

The show will return in ‘fall 2022’, so that’s between September and December!

finding alice

After series one aired across January and February this year, ITV bosses confirmed Keeley Hawes will be back for a second series of Finding Alice, with filming beginning in February 2022.


ITV bosses confirmed in January 2022 that filming has started for new detective series Ridley. The show features Adrian Dunbar as lead character Detective Inspector Alex Ridley and is due to land later in 2022.

The Bay

Following series three in January 2022, ITV bosses confirmed The Bay had been renewed for a fourth, with filming due to begin later in the year.

Happy Valley

Six years after BBC drama Happy Valley aired, bosses have revealed the third and final series will be back on our screens with main actress Sarah Lancashire playing the role of Police sergeant Catherine Cawood.

Filming has already started so we expect Happy Valley to land later in the year.

The Responder

Following a successful first series earlier in 2022, BBC bosses have confirmed Martin Freeman’s The Responder will return for a second series.

A start date hasn’t yet been revealed, but it has been confirmed that Martin will return as PC Chris Carson.


BBC prison drama Time received a 100% score from Rotten Tomatoes when it landed in June 2021, so it’s no surprise bosses have renewed the show for a second series.

Main actors Sean Bean and Stephen Graham won’t appear in the second series, with the show turning their attention on an all-female prison.

Heartstopper was added to Netflix at the end of April, it’s about a group of teenage friends. When quiet Charlie and rugby-playing Nick get chosen to sit together they form an unlikely friendship that turns into a blossoming relationship. We caught up with actors Joe Locke, who plays Charlie and Kit Connor who plays Nick to ask them some questions.
