The days are numbered for the year and it is inevitable not to make a recount of what this 2022 has given of itself… at least in terms of the series. Especially those that have offered us a happy and comforting place, where you would move or simply break up.
So, let’s review what are the 21 Best TV Comedies of 2022. New series or seasons released in Spain this year and that have provided us with great fun and, why not say it, a little heartbreak.
The ranking of comedies of the year
And it is that this 2022 we have had the farewell to the latest comedy by Ricky Gervais (‘afterlife‘), great summer surprises like ‘they give the blow‘, longed for returns of geniuses such as ‘Russian doll‘ either ‘Atlanta‘, serious as ‘The Bear‘ and already comedy classics like ‘What we do in the shadows‘ have their presence on this list among many others.
On the other hand, we also invite you to know the best series Y 2022 miniseries; Also, these are the tops of Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+ Y Prime Video. If the comedy does not finish convincing you, we also have our ranking with horror series highlights of this 2022
created by Ricky Gervais | Distribution: Gervais, Tom Basden, Tony Way, etc.
We kick off one of those comedies in the “downer series” subgenre with the final season of Ricky Gervais’ wonderful exploration of grieving and getting back up (if you can).
created by Christopher Miller | Distribution: Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson, Zoë Chao, etc.
We lovers of mystery comedy are having such good years and this is a great example of this with a fun murder case in a series that jumps from genre to genre according to the different stories and personalities of the main suspects.
created by Donald Glover | Distribution: Donald Glover, Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield and Zazie Beetz
It has taken a while to come out but how good it is to come out. A season 3 that takes Earn, Paper Boi and company on tour in Europe while continuing to mark fabulous self-contained episodes in its incisive message.
created by Bill Hader and Alec Berg | Distribution: Bill Hader, Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, etc.
Perhaps too much time has gone by with this one as well, and the truth is that the life of this murderer with an acting vocation has returned more powerful and darker than normal, delving into the inconsistencies of leaving the past behind.
created by Christopher Storer | Distribution: Jeremy Allen White, Ebon Moss-Bacharach, etc.
While it may even be somewhat daring to consider it a comedy because of the intensity it carries, this is probably one of the series that has hit critics the most this year with an oppressive “kitchen nightmare.”
‘Abbott College’ (Abbott Elementary)
created by Fifth Brunson | Distribution: Brunson, Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, etc.
Now let’s go for something much more classic with this wonderful “office” comedy that takes us to the lives of some teachers. One of the series with the most heart (and full of love for the guild) of all the ones you will find on this list.
‘Derry Girls’ S3
created by Lisa McGee | Distribution: Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Louisa Harland, etc.
We’re leaving our favorite Irish teens but that hasn’t stopped us from having a big send-off. Fun, quirky and very true to herself with her 90’s look.
‘They give the blow’ (A League of their Own)
created by Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham | Distribution: Abbi Jacobson, Chanté Adams, D’Arcy Carden, etc.
Every summer a big surprise falls and this one has been the new version of the 90s sports movie. On this occasion and in series format, we find a wonderful comedy that takes us to those beginnings of the women’s baseball league .
created by Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs, Jen Statsky | Distribution: Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder
It was the revelation comedy of 2021 and this year it has confirmed, with this bus tour, that excellent is insufficient to describe the give and take of this comic duo. Sharp, thoughtful and hilarious.
created by Alice Osman | Distribution: Kit Connor, Joe Locke, etc.
Another of the surprises of the year has been this magnificent adolescent romantic comedy that goes far beyond the boy meets boy and those clichés to tell us about the day-to-day life of a group of young people in a way that is as beautiful as it is casual.
‘What we do in the shadows’ (What We Do in the Shadows) S4
created by Jemaine Clement | Distribution: Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demtriou, Harvel Guillén and Mark Proksch
I admit that this season has come a little late in my year (it hasn’t given me life) but it was putting on the first episode and watching all of season 4 in just a couple of days. The most hilarious vampires return showing why they are still the kings of absurd comedy.
can be seen in HBO Max
‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) S4
created by Amy Sherman-Palladino | Distribution: Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, Michael Zegen, etc.
We may now see this series with a touch of “who’s seen you and who sees you” but it’s still as wonderful, as happy place as ever. A superb biting period comedy and wonderfully shot.
‘Russian Doll’ (Russian Doll) T2
created by Natasha Lyonne, Leslye Headlan, and Amy Poehler | Distribution: Natasha Lyonne, Chloe Sevigny, Charlie Barnett
Its first season was brutal and this second installment has been even better. The loop is reinvented to put us back into a new temporary nightmare, this time via the New York subway.
‘Mythic Quest’ S3
created by Charlie Day, Megan Ganz, Rob McElhenney | Distribution: Rob McElhenney, Charlotte Nicdao, etc.
Within the great office comedies category, Ubisoft’s continues to be a great example of how to address both the genre and the world of videogames with a season 3 that continues to deliver very, very special episodes.
‘I don’t like driving’
created by Borja Cobeaga | Distribution: Juan Diego Botto, Lucía Caraballo, etc.
The only Spanish entry goes to Cobeaga’s latest comedy, which takes us to the world of driving schools when you are already old. Very polished and with directly priceless characters.
It can be seen on TNT Now | Criticism
‘Rick and Morty’ S6
created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon
Harmon and Roiland are spoiling us with the new production rates of this magnificent animated series whose last season has come to us in two batches, the first a bit “bottle” and the second more “as always”. Hilarious but also aware of his own maturation.
‘Only Murders in the Building’ (Only Murders in the Building) T2
created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman | Distribution: Steve Martin, Martin Short, Selena Gomez
The podcaster trio returns and they have done so with a season that, although it loses the surprise factor, retains all its ingenuity and even manages to bring a certain self-awareness to the table as it delves deeper into the lore of the building.
created by Hannah Bos and Paul Thureen | Distribution: Bridget Everett, Jeff Hiller, etc.
Almost as soon as the year began, we were able to devour one of the best series of 2022 with this tender comedy about friendship and finding its place once we are over forty.
created by Rose Matafeo | Distribution: Rose Matafeo, Nikesh Patel and Emma Sidi
In the “why is this treat so short” category we have this British romantic comedy that jumps from date to date to explore this couple’s relationship. Light, intelligent and hilarious at the same time.
‘The sex lives of college girls’ (The Sex Lives of College Girls) S2
created by Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble | Distribution: Pauline Chalamet, Amrit Kaur, Reneé Rapp and Alyah Chanelle Scott
And we end this list with a double from Mindy Kaling. The first, the university partying of these girls who continue to be the most charismatic and with the most chemistry that you can find on television. A new season directly hilarious.
‘I never’ (Never Have I Ever) T3
created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher | Distribution: Maitrey Ramakrishnan, Darren Barnett, Jaren Lewison, etc.
The second series is this monumental teen comedy with a season 3 of Devi’s moves. The best thing is that you think about it and it’s really a one-of-a-kind series with that unusually sensitive exploration of adolescence.
The best of 2022
