We love queer TV! There’s nothing better than tuning in every week (or binging an entire season all in one day) to see what our favorite LGBTQ+ characters are doing. And 2022 is going to be an even better year for queer TV than this one was.
Some of our favorite shows (like The L Word: Generation Q and Q-Force) are waiting to hear if they’ll be renewed, and others were canceled, but a lot of the queer shows we love are definitely coming back in the new year. Meanwhile, other favorites like The Other Two, Gossip Girl, and Love, Victor have all been renewed, but we don’t know yet when their new seasons are coming. So hopefully, we’ll see more of those shows in 2022 as well.
There are also plenty of new queer shows to sate your appetite, including some that could be real groundbreakers in the genre (Queer as Folk and A League of Their Own, I’m looking at you). Here are 13 of the upcoming LGBTQ+ shows we’re most excited for in 2022!
