Browse American detective shows by decade or return to the TV Detective Database:
As part of my mission to compile a TV Detective Database listing all mystery/detective/crime shows ever made, I am getting a head start in compiling a list of mystery shows produced in the United States that premiered (or have been announced to premiere) in the year 2022.
As usual, I use the term “detective show” rather loosely and include anything that can be classified as a mystery/thriller/crime drama. However, I exclude true crime documentaries and reality shows, as I want to focus on scripted stories.
I hope that you find the list below helpful — both in highlighting shows that are coming out later this year that you can look forward to, and in helping you discover something that came out earlier in the year that you haven’t yet seen. For that reason, I have organized the list according to the month in which each show premiered (or will premiere). Where possible, I’ve included information about where the show will be airing or streaming, along with the specific premiere date.
