It’s far too early to know what 2022 has in store for us, but this year’s first TV premieres are full of familiar faces and concepts. James Gunn and John Cena bring Founder of Peace to HBO Max, where he can toot and miss something more in his tighty-whities. (Full disclosure: There are no confirmed reports that said underwear reappeared.) CWverse welcomes Naomi, a new show developed by Ava DuVernay and based on the DC Comics superhero. ABC launches the historical drama Women of the Movement, which tells the story of how Mamie Till-Mobley’s search for justice for her murdered son, Emmett Till, fueled the American civil rights movement. Eliza Coupe leads the ensemble comedy Pivoting along with Ginnifer Goodwin and Maggie Q, and Apple TV + takes us back to Fraggle Rock.
