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 like HBO Max.

Speaking of that, here’s what’s new on HBO Max and HBO (as well as what’s leaving) during the month of May 2022.

This May, HBO Max is springing into a wide array of award-winning comedies, documentaries, and thrillers from a unique group of creators.

New in May is season two of the Emmy winning comedy Hacks, the true story The Staircase starring Colin Firth and Toni Collette, and The Time Traveler’s Wife, inspired by the novel by Audrey Niffenegger.

This month also brings the two-part documentary George Carlin’s American Dream, the season two premiere of That Damn Michael Che, and the season two premiere of PAUSE with Sam Jay.

The Matrix: Resurrections returns to HBO Max in the month along with new HBO Originals Old, Dear Evan Hansen, Zathura: A Space Adventure, and Sesame Street Mecha Builders.
