Everything Coming To HBO Max In May 2022

From ‘Hacks’ season two to ‘The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.’

Originally Published: 

A new month is right around the corner, and as always HBO Max is ready to freshen up your streaming routine with a bunch of new programs.

In May, it’ll launch season two of the long-awaited comedy Hacks, starring Jean Smart (Deborah Vance), and breakout star, Hannah Einbinder. The streamer just released the series’ trailer, and from the looks of things, season two picks up right where we left off. Tune in on May 12th to see how the unlikely duo tries to revive Vance’s dwindling career on a cross-country roadtrip.

Later in the month, HBO Max will release its version of The Time Traveler’s Wife, based on Audrey Niffenegger's novel of the same name. Her best-selling book was adapted into a film, starring Rachel McAdams, in 2009. HBO’s televised reboot stars Rose Leslie and Theo James, as a couple navigating their love story which is upended by a peculiar time-traveling curse.

The fun doesn’t stop there, though. Look no further for a list of everything that’s coming (and leaving) HBO Max next month.
