The 2021-22 Premier League 2 is the sixth year of the top tier of the Professional Development League. It was rebranded from the previous Under-21 Premier League in 2016, with the age range changed from Under-21 to Under-23. Clubs are also still permitted to field three 'over-age' outfield players and one 'over-age' goalkeeper.

The league remains split into two, with both Leeds United and Crystal Palace promoted to the top division. They replace Southampton who were relegated from Division 1. Birmingham City and Nottingham Forest earned Category One status in the summer of 2021 and provisionally join Divison Two for this season. Manchester City are the defending Division 1 champions.

Promotion and relegation of two teams will apply once again this season. The teams finishing 13th and 14th in Division 1 will be relegated, while the team finishing top of Division 2 will be automatically promoted. Those teams finishing second, third, fourth and fifth in Division 2 will compete in a promotion playoff.
