With several interplanetary successes to its name, HBO enjoys a solid reputation on the small screen. The American channel is not going to stop there, and is developing many other productions for its platform. In 2022, the schedule will be loaded according to the video she shared on YouTube. Between Game Of Thrones, His Dark Materials, but also Peacemaker, there should be something for everyone. Overview of what HBO has in store for next year.
Game of Thrones: House of The Dragon on OCS
After 3 years of radio silence, the universe of Game Of Thrones preparing for its big comeback. 200 years before the fall of the throne, the series inspired by the book Fire & Blood will immerse us in the origins of the Targaryen family alongside new characters. A spin-off particularly awaited by fans of the license, since it promises to lift the veil on certain gray areas of the plot of the mother series.
In the casting, exit Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke, Matt Smith and Olivia Cooke will be in the spotlight this time. The two actors camp respectively Prince Daemon Targaryen and Alicent Hightower in the new series. They give the reply to Paddy Considine (Viserys Targaryen) and Rhys Ifans (Otto Hightower). Moreover, we will find Emma D’Arcy in the skin of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Sonoya Mizuno in that of a certain Mysaria.
DB Weiss and David Benioff have also passed the baton to a new showrunner, as it’s Ryan J. Condal who takes on the universe for the first time. The series is nevertheless in good hands since the author is also involved in the creative process. We can therefore be reassured. For the moment, we do not know the exact release date of this new series which already promises to become a phenomenon. On the other hand, we know that as in the good days, it is OCS which obtains French exclusivity. The Orange platform therefore still has good hours ahead of it.
Westworld (season 4) on OCS
After three relatively successful seasons, Westworld returns for a new round of episodes. The series announced as the worthy heir to Game of Thrones is offered a fourth season on HBO and OCS in France. Jeffrey Wright, who plays Bernard, had also shared an image of the return to the sets last June. We can therefore hope to find all these beautiful people next spring, to stick with the broadcast date of season 3 which took place in March 2020.
As a reminder, Westworld follows the adventures of visitors to a park populated by ultra-realistic robots. In this universe inspired by westerns, they can give free rein to all fantasies, even the most shameful. But when a revolt is brewing among the androids, more than ever humans are no longer safe.
Euphoria (season 2) -January 9 on OCS
Critically acclaimed, Euphoria lands on OCS for a new chapter. From January 9, subscribers to the platform will be able to discover the new adventures of Rue and June. As a reminder, Euphoria follows Rue, a young 17-year-old woman fresh out of rehab who seeks to make sense of her existence. Around her, gravitate several characters like Jules Vaughn recently arrived in town after the divorce of his parents and with whom Rue will fall madly in love. A human fresco not to be missed.
In the casting, we find Zendaya (Spider-Man: No Way Home) in the most influential role of her young career, but also the young Hunter Schafer, Maude Apatow (The King of Staten Island) and Jacob Elordi (The Kissing Booth).
The Time Traveler’s Wife – in 2022
After Sherlock and Dracula, Steven Moffat tackles time travel with The Time Traverl’s Wife. The screenwriter will tell the complex and magical love story of Claire and Henry, whose marriage encounters a serious problem. Worn by Rose Leslie (Game Of Thrones) and Theo James (Divergent), the series promises to mix the codes of drama and fantasy, for entertainment, we hope as successful as these last productions. It is not yet known if the series will be broadcast on OCS, or if it will join another French platform.
His Dark Materials (season 3) – on OCS
The adaptation of The Crossroads of Worlds by Philip Pullman continues its path on HBO. His Dark Materials will plunge us back into its fantastic world with a third series of episodes, still under the direction of Jack Thorne.
We will find the young Dafne Keen in the role of Lyra, Ruth Wilson in that of Marisa Coulter and James McAvoy in Lord Astriel. This new season should follow the framework of the third volume: The Amber Mirror. It will nevertheless be necessary to wait a little before discovering it, the shooting having been completed only at the end of November. We do know, however, that the appointment will be set during the year 2022.
Peacemaker – January 13 on HBO Max
The Suicide Squad by James Gunn was a hit. The announcement of a spin-off series, still directed by the filmmaker, is therefore not really a surprise. Peacemaker, as the name suggests, will follow the adventures of the superhero after the events of the feature film. Still played by John Cena, the character will have to ally himself with a bunch of broken arms to fight crime and establish… peace.
For the moment, no French release date has been formalized. Indeed, if OCS benefited from the exclusivity of HBO productions until 2021, things will change at the dawn of the year 2022. The contract between the two companies has probably ended, while HBO Max is preparing its deployment in Europe. However, the platform should not arrive immediately in our green regions, we are talking about the horizon 2023. So on which platform will land Peacemaker ? It is still very difficult to know, even a few days before its launch in the United States. Across the Atlantic, fans will be able to discover it from the January 13th.
2022 therefore promises to be particularly busy for the successful factory, which will therefore not slow down its efforts to satisfy its spectators around the world.
