Series 85 is the current series of Countdown and the second series presented by Anne Robinson. It began on 3 January 2022, and is expected to conclude in June 2022.

Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon will temporarily serve as stand-in arithmetician for the first 51 episodes of this series due to Rachel Riley's maternity leave; her last episode will be Episode 7717.

Apterite Adrian Fletcher has so far appeared on the series, though he became a member after his preliminary games were filmed. Apterites confirmed to also appear include Dan Byrom, Gabriel Thallon and Robbie Pender.

Since Series 60, players are sorted by number of wins, then by number of points. Points from both wins and losses count. Points from sudden death conundrums are not counted, and players with the same number of wins and points are sorted by the number of conundrums correctly guessed, then highest individual score.
