Year in Review

2022 in Review: The Most Dynamic 'Ships From White Lotus, Heartstopper, Abbott Elementary, NCIS and More

Best TV Couples 2022

The edges of our seats endured some extra wear and tear this year, thanks to a handful of relentlessly dramatic TV couples.

From the horny halls of Abbott Elementary to the sensual shires (?) of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, these on-screen pairs refused to let us rest until they squeezed every ounce of emotion out of us. And some of them aren’t even official couples!

As with any year-end list, this collection of couples is a spoiler minefield, so proceed with caution if you aren’t caught up on any of the following shows: Abbott Elementary, All American, Bridgerton, Euphoria, Fire Country, Ghosts, Good Trouble, Heartstopper, Law & Order: SVU, Legacies, Loot, Lord of the Rings, NCIS, NCIS: Hawai’i, The Resident, The Rookie, Severance, The Sex Lives of College Girls or The White Lotus.

Read on to see which couples kept us in their clutches all year, then drop a comment with your own additions to our list. Which pairs did you obsess over in 2022?
