We truly are living in the golden age of television, aren’t we? There are more good shows and movies available now than ever before in history. And it’s all thanks to our favorite online streaming services.

Speaking of our favorite online streaming services, here’s what’s new for the month of December 2020 on HBO and HBO Max.

Celebrate Christmas Day with Wonder Woman 1984 when it flies onto the platform the same day it hits theaters around the country as Wonder Woman’s next big screen adventure finds her facing two all-new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah.

Also premiering this December is the holiday special My Gift: A Christmas Special from Carrie Underwood as well as the premiere of the new Euphoria special episode starring Zendaya.

Steven Soderbergh’s new comedy film Let Them All Talk boasts an A-list cast including Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest, Gemma Chan, and Lucas Hedges. The third season of Summer Camp Island, following best friends Oscar and Hedgehog as they have strange encounters with mystical creatures, discovering their own magical potential is also set to debut this December.

There’s even more in store with the premiere of Heaven’s Gate: The Cult of Cults, an intimate, four-part docuseries that explores the infamous religious movement and the stranger-than-fiction circumstances that culminated in the biggest mass suicide to ever take place in the U.S.

Top films debuting include The Shawshank Redemption, Snakes on a Plane, Striptease, Gladiator, and Demolition Man. December will also be the last chance to watch Analyze This, Citizen Kane, Boogie Nights, La La Land, and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider before they depart the service.

Reminder: most HBO subscribers in the U.S. have access to the HBO Max app as part of their HBO subscription.
