The year 2022 showed that streaming platforms are at their best. Although Netflix appeared as the undisputed "queen" of this industry, other applications such as Disney Plus, Amazon Prime Video or HBO Max began to launch different series that fell in love with the audience.

All this allows a wide range of options for users, who know that there are high-quality productions that they can watch whenever they want. In this sense, 2022 seems to be the same, as there are new series announced that excite millions of people around the world.

Here we will tell you which are the most important!

House of the Dragon

This production will be available on HBO Max and is shaping up to be one of the most important in 2022. In case you didn't know, it is a prequel series to Game of Thrones, one of the most popular series of all time, as commissioned to break audience records throughout all its seasons.

However, it had a controversial ending, due to the fact that the last two seasons were not in the fans' favourites. Therefore, there will be an opportunity to relive the "fever of Game of Thrones" with this story that will take place 300 years before those events of the first series and will explain how the House of Targaryen rose and fell.

The plot will be based on the novel Fire and Blood by George RR Martin and will probably aim to be the most watched production of the following year.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

This is another of the most anticipated by fans. It will be available on Disney Plus, which is the new home for all Star Wars productions. In this case, it consists of a series that many fans will love, since the characters of Obi Wan and Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) will meet again after several years of absence.

Best of all, the actors who were in the prequels (Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen), icons for an entire generation, will return. The plot will try to tell what happened between Episode III and Episode IV, when Obi Wan went into exile on Tatooine and Darth Vader was already with the Emperor.

If the result is good, Disney will show that the Star Wars path seems to focus on the series, after the failure of the sequels among fans.

The Lord of the Rings

This production will be available on Amazon Prime Video. What stands out here is the huge budget, the platform has invested 465 million dollars in its first season alone. That's a figure that's well over the entire budget for Peter Jackson's movie trilogy.

What you have to know is that this creation will be a spin-off of those movies. It will be set in the Second Age of Middle Earth, the Dark Ages. That is, the period before what happened in The Hobbit. Surely, we will see an important fight between species, with great production details.

The budget they have is huge, so it may serve to regain interest in the story created by JRR Tolkien.

One Piece

It will be available on Netflix and it is a live-action adaptation of one of the longest and most popular anime in history. Created by Eichiro Oda, the story tells the life of Luffy, a boy who wants to become the "King of the Pirates" and find the One Piece, a legendary treasure found somewhere on the Grand Line.

That route will be fraught with danger, with enemies having many supernatural powers that they obtain through Devil Fruits. Therefore, it is a long-awaited adaptation, but also a controversial one, as it is a series that has millions of fans around the world, who hope that the story will be done well.

When it comes out, it will surely appear among the most viewed on the platform, since both anime fans and those who want a great adventure series will reproduce it.

Vikings: Valhalla

We can see a production that will also come to Netflix. It will be a spin-off of the popular Vikings series that will show the events of a century after the original series. The idea is that another facet of history can be explored, when this civilization began to decline due to all its problems.

Here the end of the Viking era will be explored, when England begins to battle against the invaders that come from the Nordic lands. It remains to be seen how enthusiastic the new cast and the stories they will be based on, but the level of production will continue at the highest level.

In this case, it will be highly anticipated as the completion of the original series, with its sixth season, has left fans wishing more.
