The new year is just a few weeks away now, and Netflix is ready with a horror-packed schedule.
The streamer this week confirmed its genre lineup for 2022 and, while almost no specific dates were revealed for the shows discussed below, horror fans will get a good idea of what to expect in the coming year.
The Netflix offerings, as reported by Variety, start off with Archive 81 on Jan. 14, 2022. This supernatural horror series follows archivist Dan Turner as he reconstructs the work of a documentary filmmaker and “becomes obsessed with saving her from a fate she met 25 years ago,” according to the official synopsis.
The other shows–which do not have debut dates at this time–include Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, the animated origin story of Scott (Dave Bautista) and his rescue crew during the initial fall of Vegas as they confront the source of the zombie outbreak. Showrunner Jay Oliva will direct two episodes, as will Zack Snyder.
Season 3 of Locke & Key is also on the way next year, with the Locke family uncovering more magic within Keyhouse, while a new threat looms. And a new horror series from Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy–The Midnight Club–will draw inspiration from the works of bestselling author Christopher Pike.
A new live-action Resident Evil series will also debut. This show, set nearly 30 years after the discovery of the T-virus, follows an outbreak that reveals the secrets of the Umbrella Corporation. And The Sandman–a blend of modern myth and fantasy from Neil Gaiman–will follow people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King.
Also, Stranger Things 4 will finally debut next summer, complete with top-secret government experiments and a dangerous gateway to a sinister realm in the spotlight. Rounding out the lineup is The Witcher: Blood Origin, which will introduce fans to the first Witcher and the events that led to the “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men and Elves merged.
