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 August 2019 on HBO Now.

HBO’s summer of comedy continues as The Righteous Gemstones, the latest creation from Danny McBride, and A Black Lady Sketch Show, from creator, executive producer, writer and star Robin Thede, premieres alongside comedy special My Favorite Shapes by Julio Torres.

August also marks the season two premiere of Emmy-nominated drama Succession, the season finale of the new series Euphoria, and the series finale of Divorce. Plus, Puerto Rican reggaeton artist Farruko’s exclusive concert special Farruko: En Letra De Otro makes its HBO debut.

Blockbusters like Aquaman, Mortal Engines, The Mule starring Clint Eastwood, Boy Erased with Nicole Kidman, and Can You Ever Forgive Me? starring Melissa McCarthy, also arrive on HBO Now in August.

It’s also your last chance to catch Tag, Ocean’s 8, Geostorm, Date Night and 50 First Dates before they leave the service at the end of the month.
