10 Egyptian Ramadan Series to Watch in 2022

 

The month of Ramadan encompasses a myriad of blessings, including, the Egyptian drama marathons that unite friends and families. Every year, the universe of Egyptian Ramadan series delivers compelling, thought-provoking, and complex television shows.

It is during the month of Ramadan that millions of people enjoy the overflow of melodramatic series that tell stories of love, power, and much more. Arab television channels air one episode of each Ramadan show every day, often after Iftar, where the post-iftar entertainment keeps viewers on the edge of their seats until they could catch their breath at the finale.

For avid watchers in the United States of America who have often had to struggle to access shows back home or from the region, there’s now a solution: Sling Arabic TV, the leading provider for Arabic Live Streaming and On-Demand channels in the United States, offers the largest lineup of Ramadan series every year.

Here are the 10 most anticipated Egyptian TV shows in Ramadan 2022, all which will also be available to US-based audiences:
