The voting process for the 2022 Emmys began today. Consequently, everyone involved in the decision-making process for the 74th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will cast their ballot concerning lots of categories. But today, we’re focusing on the Top 10 Comedy Series likely to win an Emmy in 2022. Some of these series have a serious chance of taking home an award.
Maybe you’ve seen them. Perhaps you haven’t. Still, 118 titles will compete for a Primetime Emmy Award next year. And the decision-makers must cast their ballots. So, let’s take some time and review some of these comedy series that have a solid chance of winning an Emmy without further ado.
Top 10 Comedy Series Likely To Win An Emmy In 2022
When the pandemic hit us all by surprise two years ago, we had two choices: Remote work and streaming. Consequently, streaming services went up in demand. Still, the productions halted, and the entire entertainment industry suffered an unexpected pause. But that didn’t stop viewers from catching up on the previous series or trying new ones.
10. Reservation Dogs
Taika Waititi —she also directed Thor: Love and Thunder— and Sterlin Harjo bring us Reservation Dogs (a pun on the Tarantino classic) that has a novel cast made up of Native Americans on-screen and behind the screen.
Furthermore, the show tells the story of a bunch of teenagers on a crime rampage in rural Oklahoma as they plan to move to Sunny, Liberal California. With great performances, a cool script, and nice reviews, this series has a lot of potentials to grab an Emmy. Moreover, the series has already received a Peabody Award and a Golden Globe nomination, making it a strong candidate. Lastly, this show is available on Hulu.

9. The Flight Attendant
Kaley Cuoco’s Cassi Bowden character is back for the sophomore season of The Flight Attendant as she tries to shake off some crimes that she was framed in.
In the second season of The Flight Attendant, we see a great performance by her, a solid script and good delivery make the show an ideal candidate to become the accolade recipient. Lastly, this show is available on HBO, HBO GO, and HBO Max.
The Flight Attendant Trailer:
This irreverent yet tough-as-nails comedy starring Donald Glover tells the story of a rapper and his manager trying to make it in the Atlanta rap world. While incredibly funny with great lines, there is a solid cast with Lakeith Stanfield, Bryan Tyree Henry, and Zazie Beetz. This show makes a good competitor, as it has already received nominations for an Emmy for the Outstanding Comedy Series in 2022.
Furthermore, the third season, more dramatic than comedic, had mixed reviews and lowered ratings. And that might be dissuasive for the electors to cast their vote in Atlanta’s way. Lastly, this show is available for streaming on Hulu, FX, DirecTV, Fubo TV, Spectrum on Demand and Amazon Prime Video.
7. What We Do In The Shadows
The vampire mockumentary based upon the movie is a dark comedy about bloodsuckers living on Staten Island. It has just about everything you could expect from those elements. The weird, the dark, the blood, and the laughs.
Moreover, it has a good script and a great cast that delivers strong performances. Furthermore, the series was nominated two years ago for Outstanding Comedy Series. But can it win facing the tough competition out there? Lastly, you can stream this show from Hulu, DirecTV, Spectrum on Demand, Fubo TV and Amazon Prime Video.

6. Abbott Elementary
ABC’s Abbott Elementary takes the mockumentary format to an elementary school where teachers, students, and everybody else has something to say in that suburb school in Philadelphia. With a great ensemble cast led by Quinta Brunson and renewed for a sophomore season, the show delivers a good laugh, and it also managed to get good ratings.
But can that be enough to get an Emmy? After all, this up-and-comer is competing against tough names. Lastly, this show is available on Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Fubo TV, DirecTV, Sling and Spectrum on Demand.

5. Only Murders In The Building
This Hulu original series starring Martin Short, Steve Martin, and Selena Gomez got greenlit for a sophomore season after a good debut. It tells the story of three apartment tenants that started a true-crime podcast with the intent of solving a murder that took place in their building.
Moreover, the sophomore season drops later this month. So, the ballots will have a chance to revisit the debut and the new material when they cast their vote. And that makes it a strong candidate to win an Emmy by the repetition factor, strong script, and great cast. As stated earlier, you can stream this show on Hulu, Disney+, and Stars+ depending on your location.

4. The Marvelous Ms. Maisel
Season four of Amazon Prime Video’s The Marvelous Ms. Maisel came back after two years, and it’s got the same good ol’ spunk of Jewish cultural separatism from that New York humor Americans enjoy so much. Moreover, the series is an Emmy-grabbing powerhouse. It managed to get the Award for Outstanding Comedy Series on its debut season and managed to rake in a bunch of nominations for its sophomore and third season. But can it deliver on an Emmy for the fourth one?
So far, the plot and the reception haven’t been as hot as the debut. Still, it’s a top contender for the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards. So we’ll have to wait and see! Lastly, the only place to watch this show is on Amazon Prime Video.
The Marvelous Ms. Maisel Trailer:
HBO’s Hacks took many Emmy Awards in the past ceremony. Jean Smarts and Hannah Einbender tell the story of a stand-up comedienne trying to revamp her act to avoid her residency papers. And to do so, she joins forces with an aspiring writer to come up with her jokes. So, together, they go on the road.
The sophomore season was a bang, and if they manage to nail it again, the top spot is in check as this HBO show is angling to snatch a few trophies again! As stated earlier, you can stream this series on HBO, HBO Max and HBO Go.
HBO’s series starring Bill Hader, about a hitman with self-esteem issues, came back after three years out of circulation. And it came back with a boom. The dark comedy has us following the life of a man who’s so accustomed to violence that quitting his day job for acting class is just too much for him.
Coupled with some dating woes, Barry has to deal with his day-to-day while also facing the skeletons in his closet. The solid acting and its script make it an ideal candidate to receive the silver medal in Emmy Awards this year. As stated earlier, you can catch this series on HBO, HBO Max and HBO Go.
1. Ted Lasso
Ted Lasso is a comedy series on Apple TV+ about an American Football coach outsourced from the USA to work in a struggling English football team. And what ensues is a cross-cultural comedy full of warmth with great performances by its cast. Moreover, its sophomore season was bigger in reception than its first one.
Consequently, it’s no surprise that the Apple TV+ ranks on top of the countdown for an Emmy this year for Outstanding Comedy. As stated earlier, you can catch this one on Apple TV+
