It may seem like just yesterday that the biggest new and returning shows were debuting on TV for the 2021-2022 TV seasons, but now spring finale season is upon us. For some series – like Young Sheldon, Grey’s Anatomy, and the three shows of One Chicago – there’s no need to worry about whether or not they’ll be renewed, while others still have their fates up in the air. The excellent news for the coming weeks and months is that we know when shows will air their finales. With series like Abbott Elementary already ending for the season, it’s time to look ahead at the big spring finale dates. 

So, get ready to start planning for the cliffhangers that are undoubtedly on the way to wrap up the network TV season, and check out the list of finale dates so far! (Note: all times listed are in ET.)

Late April 2022 Finales

April is a little early for many shows to come to an end for the season, but there are certainly exceptions to that rule. Abbott Elementary Season 1 and The Thing About Pam limited series are already done for the 2021-2022 season as of early April, and more shows will air their finales before the end of the month, including one that will release its very last episode after eight seasons

May 2022 Finales

While April is when the finales start to trickle in, May is the month when the finales begin to flood. TV fans may want to keep their calendars open in primetime this month – or at least make sure to have the right streaming subscriptions and/or record their favorites – because there are some big shows wrapping their seasons, and probably not with episodes that you’ll want to have spoiled.

June 2022 Finales

Most of the biggest shows on television will have wrapped their seasons in May, but that doesn’t mean that TV will be out of finales by the time June rolls around. Some of the bigger networks have finales on the schedule, and The CW saved some of its most popular series for June as well. Fans of The CW are also lucky enough to know about renewals ahead of time, including The Flash and Superman & Lois.

Friday, June 10

  • Charmed Season 4 - The CW - 8 p.m.

Wednesday, June 15

  • Kung Fu Season 2 - The CW - 9 p.m.

Thursday, June 16

  • Legacies Season 4 - The CW - 9 p.m.

Tuesday, June 21

  • Superman & Lois Season 2 - The CW - 8 p.m. 

Thursday, June 23

  • MasterChef Junior Season 8 - Fox - 8 p.m.
  • Walker Season 2 - The CW - 8 p.m.

Wednesday, June 29

  • The Flash Season 8 - The CW - 8 p.m.

Saturday, July 16

  • Transplant Season 2 - NBC - 8 p.m.

The summer TV season will boast its own batch of shows that will premiere to fill the gaps left by all of these series. Summer is a big time for streaming, and 2022 will be no exception with the returns of shows like Amazon’s The Boys, Hulu’s The Only Murders in the Building, and Netflix’s Stranger Things after nearly three years without any new episodes and “war” on the way. Throw in the returns of The Bachelorette and Better Call Saul in the 2022 TV schedule, and there’s plenty to look forward to even after all of the finales.
