Here’s Everything That’s Coming To HBO Max When It Launches Next Month


The one where you had to decide about getting another streaming service!

So as you might have already heard, WarnerMedia is jumping into the streaming biz and launching its own brand new service, HBO Max.

And earlier today, they announced some of the things to expect when HBO Max launches on May 27.

Arguably the biggest thing it will launch with is Friends, which left Netflix at the beginning of this year.

The streaming service will also air the eventual Friends reunion, which was originally supposed to launch with HBO Max but was delayed because of the coronavirus.

Also launching with HBO Max is all 12 seasons of The Big Bang Theory.

And 23 seasons of South Park (plus three new seasons to come — which will allow you to watch a new episode 24 hours after it airs on Comedy Central).

Also, the service will begin streaming additional classic TV shows from its launch date through the fall.

Of course, you’ll also get access to all those great HBO shows like Game of Thrones and Succession.

HBO Max will also be the exclusive home of all the Studio Ghibli films here in the US.

As for superhero films, it’ll launch with movies from the DC Universe, including Joker and Wonder Woman.

As well as movies it has acquired over the years, like The Wizard of Oz.

HBO Max will also be home to Bugs Bunny and the rest of the classic Looney Tunes cartoons.

And it will also have shows from Cartoon Network. As well as content that has aired on other WarnerMedia channels, like CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies.

HBO Max will launch with original content too! Anna Kendrick will star in the scripted comedy Love Life.

While YouTube star LaurDIY will host a kids competition show called Craftopia.

And Legendary is a reality dance competition show set in the ballroom community.

There will also be a brand new Looney Tunes series of shorts — which closely resembles the animation style of the originals — titled Looney Tunes Cartoons.

There will be 80 11-minute episodes of the new shorts!

And finally, Elmo will be getting his own late-night-style talk show titled The Not-Too-Late Show With Elmo, where he’ll interview celebrities and I am hoping a lot of the other Sesame Street Muppets as well!

Well, that’s all for now, folks! I am sure we’ll get a full list of shows and films that will be on HBO Max closer to the launch date.

And just in case you were wondering, a monthly subscription to HBO Max costs $14.99.

Okay, now the real question: Are you going to get HBO Max?!
