When a new show premieres on television or on streaming platforms such as Hulu or HBO Max, something has to be removed to make place for the new growth. It has happened before and will continue to happen until the medium passes away or the lights are turned off. And 2022 will be no exception, with some of the most popular shows of the last decade (or longer) airing their final episodes this year, including Better Call Saul, Peaky Blinders, and The Walking Dead Season 11.
