For many of us, 2021 has been more difficult than we ever could have imagined. One way to pass the time has been watching all of the amazing content on Disney+ and the other Disney-owned television networks. D23, the Official Disney Fan Club, has shared some shows to get you excited about the New Year:
ABC opens 2022 with a pair of new dramas: Women of the Movement, premiering January 6, is a scripted limited series based on the story of Mamie Till-Mobley (Adrienne Warren), who devoted her life to seeking justice for her son Emmett Till (Cedric Joe) after his brutal murder; and beginning January 24, Promised Land—a multigenerational family drama about a Latinx family competing for wealth and power in California’s Sonoma Valley. John Ortiz, Cecilia Suárez, and Bellamy Young lead the star-studded cast.
January also marks the return of several fan-favorite ABC shows. Reality TV lovers can rejoice with a new season of The Bachelor beginning January 3; Jesse Palmer joins the franchise—this time as host—as he guides Clayton Echard through his journey to find love. Then on January 4, black-ish returns to commence its final season, with Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) convincing Dre (Anthony Anderson) to attend a fundraising event for When We All Vote in hopes of making new couple friends… and helping voter turnout while doing so. That same week, The Goldbergs, The Wonder Years, The Conners, and Home Economics all have midseason premieres airing January 5.
Penny Proud and her family are back in The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder—a new animated series coming to Disney+ in February and following the continuing adventures (and misadventures) of 14-year-old Penny and her friends and family as they now navigate the 2020s. Meanwhile, journey down the rabbit hole and dust off the cookbooks with Alice’s Wonderland Bakery—an all-new animated series premiering on Disney Junior in early 2022. Tune in for delicious treats and whimsical stories with a new generation of Wonderland pals.
Hold on—the fun doesn’t stop there! Rounding out the slate is a slew of highly anticipated shows set to air on Disney+ later in 2022, including Baymax!, Star Wars: Andor, Ms. Marvel, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season three, Zootopia+, Kenobi, Limitless with Chris Hemsworth, and Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. There’s truly television for everyone coming in 2022…
