Here’s a look at what’s new on HBO Max this month, along with what’s leaving the streaming service. You can sign up for HBO Max at the link below, or you might get it for no additional cost with your HBO cable subscription.

HBO Max

HBO Max is your home for Warner Bros-made movies and TV shows like The Lord of the Rings, the DC Comics superheroes and more. It’s also the home for new and original movies and shows available nowhere else.


The Matrix Resurrections (December 22)

The last of Warner Bros’ date-and-date films on HBO Max and theaters is a huge one. Lana Wachowski returns as co-writer and director of the fourth film in the action-packed Matrix film series. The trailers show Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) alive and well and apparently living in San Francisco. However, it looks like Neo is having dreams of being in another world, and it’s not long before they start to go back to the Matrix.

This movie will only be on HBO Max for 31 days after it drops, before likely returning to the service in 2022. It will also only be available for people on the $14.99 a month no ads plan.


And Just Like That (December 9)

One of the biggest HBO series of all time is coming back as an HBO Max exclusive. Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon reprise their Sex and the City roles of Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda as the trio try to keep living their lives in New York City. Look for other Sex and the City characters to pop into this new series.


Station Eleven (December 16)

Are you ready to watch another TV series about a post-apocalypse Earth? HBO Max hopes you are. This series, based on the best-selling novel of the same name, takes place in multiple timelines, centering on how human civilization copes and tries to rebuild following a devastating flu epidemic.


Finding Magic Mike (December 16)

This reality competition series should get very hot indeed. 10 men who are looking to gain some self-confidence will use their bodies to turn themselves into exotic dancers. The series comes from Magic Mike’s original director Steven Soderbergh and stars Channing Tatum, both of whom are also coming back to make a new Magic Mike movie in 2022 for HBO Max.
