2022 Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Series

At the upcoming Emmys, reigning Best Comedy Series champ “Ted Lasso” stands a strong chance of becoming the eighth sitcom to win the top honor for both of its first two seasons. It would join “All in the Family,” “Taxi,” “Cheers,” “The Golden Girls,” “Frasier,” “30 Rock,” and “Modern Family.” Scroll down to see our 2022 Emmy predictions for Best Comedy Series.

The likelihood of “Ted Lasso” facing off against former Emmy Awards rivals is also high, since the concluded “The Kominsky Method” is the only one of the other seven 2021 nominees to not air episodes during the eligibility period of June 1, 2021 to May 31, 2022. The half dozen that did are “Black-ish,” “Cobra Kai,” “Emily in Paris,” “The Flight Attendant,” “Hacks,” and “PEN15.”

Also back in the running after brief hiatuses are 2018 Emmy Awards winner “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and previous nominees “Atlanta,” “Barry,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Insecure,” “Russian Doll,” and “What We Do in the Shadows.” This would be the 10th series bid for “Curb” and would put it within one of tying the record held by “Cheers” and “M*A*S*H.”

New shows looking to emulate the first-outing victory of “Ted Lasso” include “Abbott Elementary,” “Only Murders in the Building,” and “Reservation Dogs.”
