Best Drama Series – GoldDerby
Before you make your 2023 Emmy predictions for best drama series, take a tour of our photo gallery showcasing the leading contenders. Unsurprisingly, the list is topped by “Succession,” which hopes to become the 10th show to take home the Best Drama Series trophy three times. It won last year and 2020.
“Better Call Saul” and “Yellowjackets” are the only other 2022 Best Drama Series nominees qualifying for this year’s Emmys. Four of the other five shows that ousted “Succession” last year — “Euphoria,” “Severance,” “Squid Game,” and “Stranger Things” — will not return in time to meet the May 31 eligibility deadline. The remaining spot in the last lineup belonged to “Ozark,” which ended its run last April.
Two former category champions – The Crown (2021) and The Handmaid’s Tale (2017) – are back in contention, as are previous nominees The Boys, The Mandalorian and Westworld.
‘Succession’ – which is ending after four seasons – also faces stiff competition from ‘The White Lotus’. It won Best Limited Series last year but is now competing as a drama for Season 2, set in Sicily rather than Hawaii.
Rookie contender House of the Dragon is hoping to build on the success of its parent series Game of Thrones, which has won that race a whopping four times.
Other new series in the mix include Andor, The Last of Us, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, and The Old Man.
