Are you a winter person who loves warm Christmassy vibes, and awaits the season eagerly to spend the cold nights in a warm blanket watching cozy tv series and drinking hot chocolate? If yes then you came across the perfect article to get you started on the best tv show suggestions for the winter season of 2022. Want to feel like a Christmas movie character? These shows will bring you the coziness you need in these cold afternoons and will switch your mood after a busy long day. Here I have selected some old and new goodies for you to enjoy your favourite season.
The first TV show to start with is the classic “Gilmore Girls”. This show is an American comedy-drama television series, that started airing on October 5, 2000, on the WB and that ran for seven great seasons. The show is an amazing day-to-day life journey of a single mom “Lorelei Gilmore” and her teenage daughter “Rory Gilmore” living in a small, beautiful town named “Stars Hollow”. The show goes through the life of the mother and her relationship with her parents, alongside the story of her daughter who grows through the seasons until graduating from college. This show is one of the best cozy shows to keep you company on winter nights, each episode is 45 minutes leading to a total of 153 episodes of caffeine-fused, pop-culturing spewing goodness. Everything about this show is warm and aesthetic, from the town to the costumes, the simple romance, the characters, and the storytelling. Just the perfect combination for a winter show. The show is now available on Netflix, with a bonus of four episodes that keep you away from the emotional breakdown you might feel after finishing the seven seasons. It’s called “A year in the Life”, and this revival follows the main show characters through four seasons of change: winter, spring, summer, and fall.
The second suggested TV series is “The middle”. This American television sitcom aired on ABC from September 30, 2009, to May 22, 2018, is now available to watch on HBO MAX. The series, set in Indiana, follows a middle-class family living and facing the day-to-day struggles of home life, work, and raising children. The show has the family as the main characters, the dad named “Mike”, the mom called “Frankie” and their three kids, the elder “Axl” a teenage boy, then comes “Sue” the daughter in the middle and finally their youngest son “Brick”. The show goes for nine amazing seasons that take you through adventures, dreams, and the daily life of this family all with a great dose of comedy. The series is your comforting show, just perfect for switching to a happy mood through winter days. The show also earned numerous award nominations.
The third show to make it to this list is “Mom”. With eight seasons and 170 episodes, “Mom” is also an American television sitcom that aired on CBS from 2013 to 2021. The series follows a dysfunctional mother/daughter duo “Bonnie” and “Christy Plunkett”, who, after having been estranged for years and both struggling with addiction, attempt to pull their lives and their relationship together by trying to stay sober and attending Alcoholics Anonymous. The series is both funny and cozy to watch and it’s currently available on fubo TV and Hulu Plus.
The fourth series that I will be adding to this list is perfect for winter nights as it was filmed for the Christmas season, it’s “Dash & Lily”, an American romantic comedy television series based on the young adult novel series Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. It’s a total of eight episodes that follows the titular characters around New York City during the Christmas season as they try to find each other. If you are looking for cute characters, some romance, and Christmas vibes in New York City, then for sure you have found your call.
And to sum up, last but not least, I am highly recommending you the famous Netflix show in case you haven’t watched it yet, “The Queen’s Gambit”. This series will make you for sure want to learn how to play chess if you aren’t familiar with the game. The series is an American coming-of-age drama based on the 1983 novel of the same name by Walter Tevis, and it feels like reading a good historical novel, but with the extra pleasure of contemplating the amazing outfits of Anya Taylor Joy while dominating the game of chess. Such an iconic tv show to feel the mystery vibes on winter nights.
