Netflix’s Wednesday and House of the Dragon have tied Screen Rant’s fan poll of the best TV series of 2022. Both TV series are entries in wider franchises. House of the Dragon belongs to the universe of Game of Thrones, telling a brand new story from the world of George R. R. Martin’s Westeros as it follows the rise and slow fall of the Targaryen family.
The Other 2022 TV Series That Captured Fans’ Hearts
Franchise spinoffs hold strong in the No. 2 spot as well this year, as the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story prequel series Andor on Disney+ stepped up to the plate. It amassed almost as many votes as House of the Dragon and Wednesday, missing out on No. 1 by a hair. The series was a late entry in the extended Star Wars universe, easily landing the highest marks in favor of rival 2022 series from the live-action branch of the franchise including The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
