DC Comics has several ongoing and new TV shows based on their superhero features to be released in 2022. They will include the various CW “Arrowverse” features, in addition to completely original shows and animated series. An upcoming show will even take place in the cinematic DC Extended Universe (DCEU).
One of DC’s largest and most successful live-action properties, Arrowverse, began a year earlier Man of steel (and thus the DCEU) was initiated. The successful Green Arrow adaptation, Arrow, became a favorite among viewers, regardless of their knowledge of the comics. It also led to shows like Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow, and parallel universe shows (which were nevertheless associated with it) as Super girl.
In addition to the shows confirmed for release in 2022, others are set for a later release date or one that has not yet been announced. This includes two potential film affiliates, one for DCEU’s Green Lantern Corps and another for Batman’s iteration of Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin. Here are DC Comics TV shows coming in 2022.
The Flash Season 8
While Arrow initiated Arrowverse, Lightning introduced some of DC Comics’ most robust concepts for live-action television, namely the multiverse and Barry Allen’s time travel adventures. Lightning Season 8 began in mid-November and is not yet over. Given that each season of the show lasts for about 20 episodes, the season can be expected to continue through 2022.
Legends of Tomorrow season 7
Another Arrowverse feature, Legends of Tomorrow features a team of superheroes (or redeemed villains) who travel through time (or to different timelines) and often cross with other Arrowverse shows. Like Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow is in the middle of a season that began in the fall of 2021. After a holiday break, season 7 resumes in January 2022.
Titans season 4
Based on DCs Teen Titans comics (and does not take place in Arrowverse), Titans follows a team of young superheroes, some of whom are former sidekicks of great DC heroes like Batman and Wonder Woman. The recently concluded third season featured former Robin, Jason Todd, who adopted his identity as Red Hood and clashed with his predecessor, Dick Grayson (now Nightwing). The fourth season of Titans has been confirmed, and will probably be released sometime in 2022.
Doom Patrol season 4
Despite sharing some cast Titans, Doom Patrol takes place in a separate, but perhaps similar, continuity. Now exclusively for HBO Max, Doom Patrol has completed its third season and has been renewed to a fourth. Doom Patrol season 4 does not yet have a specific release date, but it is set to begin in the fall of 2022.
Pennyworth Season 3
A prequel series exploring the adventures of a young Alfred Pennyworth, Pennyworth was originally exclusive to Epix. With two seasons completed, the Batman prequel has been renewed for a third season, with the series moving to HBO Max. Though Pennyworth season 3 does not have a specific release date, its third season will be released sometime in early 2022.
Batwoman season 3
Another series taking place in Arrowverse, Batwoman began with Bruce Wayne’s cousin Kate Kane in the title role, but now follows Ryan Wilder’s adventures. Like its Arrowverse counterparts, Batwoman began season 3 in November 2021 and is currently pausing. Season 3 can be expected to resume in early 2022.
Based on Geoff John’s cartoon, Star girl follows Courtney Whitmore’s adventures in this exclusive series of streaming services. Star girl does not take place in Arrowverse, although the series is crossed with it in the TV version of Crisis on infinite lands history. With a recently concluded second season, Star girl season 3, baptized Stargirl: Frenemies, begins in the spring of 2022.
Superman & Lois season 2
Another Arrowverse series, Superman and Lois is known for his depictions of his titular duo, played by Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, respectively. After separating from the recently completed Super girl, some viewers hope to see Jon Cryer return to the role of Superman’s nemesis, Lex Luthor, in a future story arc. Superman and Lois recently finished its first season, and a second season starts on January 11thth, 2022.
Young Justice: Phantoms
Young Justice began in 2010 as a critically acclaimed animated series on Cartoon Network, but was unfortunately canceled after only two seasons. After several years of fan campaigning to renew the series, Young Justice finally returned for a third season in 2019. To the delight of its longtime fans, it is in the middle of a fourth season with the title Young Justice: Phantoms, which began in the fall of 2021. Phantoms expected to continue into 2022.
DC Super Hero Girls Season 2
A series of growing stories that emerged as an animated web series, DC Super Hero Girls began its second season in June 2021. Since October, season 2 has been paused, but it will most likely resume in 2022. Given that DC Super Hero Girls season 1 had over 50 episodes, season 2 will likely have the same number of stories.
Teen Titans Go! Season 7
Uses the same cast and a similar animation style as the famous 2003 Teen Titans animated series, Teen Titans Go! parodies both the original TV show and the DC universe in general. Corresponding to DC Super Hero Girls, the series’ previous seasons consisted of 52 episodes each, so its ongoing seventh season will most likely continue into 2022.
Harley Quinn Season 3
Harley Quinn is another animated DC comedy, though for adults. The show follows Harley Quinn after her breakup with The Joker as she tries to make a name for herself in Gotham’s criminal underworld and develops a romantic relationship with her best friend, Poison Ivy. The series’ animation and cheeky humor are well received, and it has been renewed for a third season. Although there is no set release date, season 3 will begin sometime in 2022.
The upcoming animated series, Bat wheels, focuses on Batman’s most famous vehicle, the Batmobile. Batwheels envisions the Batmobile as a sentient crime fighter, just like Batman, and is set to premiere sometime in 2022. However, there is no specific release date for the series yet.
Based on Brian Michael Bendi’s cartoon of the same name, Naomi premieres on The CW and will be the latest addition to Arrowverse. The main character, Naomi McDuffie (aka Powerhouse), will be played by Kaci Walfall. Naomi premieres on January 11thth, 2022.
Sweet Tooth season 2
The post-apocalyptic drama, Sweet tooth, released its first season on Netflix in June 2021. The series is critically acclaimed, with critics and viewers praising its plays and themes, so of course another season is underway. Sweet tooth Season 2 does not yet have a fixed release date, but it is expected to be released by the end of 2022.
Founder of Peace
After a breakout appearance in James Gunns’ The Suicide Squad, John Cena’s comically unbearable Christopher Smith returns as the star of the HBO Max series Founder of Peace. Following Peacemaker’s survival of the Corto Maltese mission, the series will explore Smith’s background and perhaps his origins, explaining his idiotic behavior and strained relationships with his family and allies. Peacemaker is the only one coming DC Comics TV show that is part of DCEU and it is set to premiere on January 13thth, 2022.
