With streaming services and cable networks willing to throw big bucks at TV series, for many actresses the line between big screen and small screen has become blurred. In recent years, some of the biggest movie stars of our time have made the transition to TV. This means that there’s not much of a difference between a ranking of the richest actresses on television and the richest actresses, period, anymore.
So, for this list, we’ve only included actresses who have been part of the main cast of at least one series during their career. As deals are struck and new series cast between now and December, newcomers may enter the rankings too, but going into the new year, these are some of the richest actresses on television for 2022. You can also compare this power ranking to our 2021 list.
