If you’re going to be stuck inside, you might as well have over 10,000 hours of content to keep you company. That’s how much programming that HBO Max boasts, and now we know when the streamer will be available.
HBO Max launches on May 27th, and will have some original programming on launch day. While the list of scripted programming will be mostly reality and documentary based, there is one title that caught my eye. The much anticipated Looney Tunes Cartoons will be the new show I’m waiting for the most. Here’s the new trailer:
The press release does say that more originals will roll out in the Summer and Fall. This includes The Flight Attendant, starring and executive produced by Kaley Cuoco, from Berlanti Productions and based on the novel by New York Times bestselling author Chris Bohjalian; the highly anticipated Friends unscripted cast reunion special; all-new original episodes of the critically acclaimed DC fan favorite Doom Patrol; the return of the critically beloved mystery comedy Search Party with a brand new season; the three-part documentary series Expecting Amy, an unfiltered and intimate view into comedian Amy Schumer’s life on tour creating a stand-up special during her difficult pregnancy; sci-fi series Raised by Wolves from director and executive producer Ridley Scott, the award-winning creator behind The Martian, Gladiator, and Blade Runner; the adult animated comedy Close Enough, from J.G. Quintel (creator of Cartoon Network’s Emmy-winning Regular Show), a hilarious look at the surreal life of a millennial family living with roommates; and Adventure Time: Distant Lands- BMO, the first of four breakout specials resurrecting Cartoon Network’s Emmy and Peabody award-winning franchise Adventure Time.
This likely hinges on how quickly life gets back to normal. Either way, there will still be plenty of shows and movies to enjoy outside of originals. We’re talking about Arrowverse series, Doctor Who, Westworld, Doom Patrol and more. Plus, it’s a good chance to catch up on movies like Joker and Lord of the Rings.
