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 October 2020 on HBO and HBO Max.

Max Originals debuting in the month include the new Sundance award-winning film Charm City Kings, starring Jahi Di’Allo Winston and Meek Mill; A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote, in which the original cast reunites for the first time in 17 years for a special theatrical presentation of the “Hartsfield’s Landing” episode; Greg Berlanti’s documentary series Equal, honoring the LGBTQ+ rebels of yesteryear with never-before-seen archival footage; and A World of Calm, a TV experience that combines mesmeric imagery with narration by stars like Mahershala Ali, Idris Elba, Oscar Isaac, Nicole Kidman, Zoe Kravitz, Lucy Liu, Cillian Murphy, and Keanu Reeves; and the first two seasons of Gomorrah will also debut in the month.

HBO Originals premiering this October include limited series The Undoing, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant; David Byrne’s American Utopia, a special event that gives audiences access to Byrne’s critically acclaimed Broadway show that played to sold out, record breaking audiences; docu-comedy series How To With John Wilson ; documentary special The Perfect Weapon, based on the best-selling book revealing the rise of cyber conflict; and documentary Siempre, Luis, a portrait of activist Luis A. Miranda, Jr. To top it off, the season finale of Lovecraft Country, the docu-series finale of The Vow, and the series finale of Room 104 will be available to stream on the platform.

Hit films including The Matrix trilogy, Million Dollar Baby, You’ve Got Mail, Se7en, Sherlock Holmes, Tin Cup, When Harry Met Sally, and Man of Steel will also arrive on HBO Max. Popular films such as Downhill, Emma, and Black Christmas, join the HBO service this month alongside Cats and Dirty Dancing. Plus, HBO Max is the home this Halloween of a wide range of scary movies available to stream like It: Chapter Two, Us, and The Hills Have Eyes as well as classics like Critters 2, Critters 4, The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula Has Risen from The Grave, The Haunting, and Scooby-Doo! Haunted Holidays.

HBO Max’s Last Chance to Watch section includes Fantastic Beasts: The Crime of Grindelwald, The Conjuring 2, V for Vendetta, and Blade Runner: The Final Cut. October will also be the last chance to watch Yesterday, Home Alone, and Crazy, Stupid Love before they depart the HBO service.
