August on HBO Max Looks Good!

August is almost here, streamers. If you’re looking for something good to watch, you’ll have plenty to choose from on HBO Max.

Admittedly, I like talking about HBO Max. It’s part of the AT&T family, and Signal Group is an AT&T Preferred Dealer, so it feels like I’m rooting for the home team, so to speak. Along those lines, HBO Max is adding 143 new TV shows and movies to its August lineup. This includes series and season finales for HBO originals including Perry Mason and I’ll Be Gone in the Dark. HBO Max is also premiering several new movies and shows including Richard Jewell, Selena + Chef, and Class Action Park. Let’s take a closer look at some of these amazing shows that are leaving (some to return) and coming to this streaming service.

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark

If you’ve already been watching these series, then its ending might be bittersweet. On the one hand, you’ll find closure for this gripping HBO original documentary. On the other hand, you’ll probably be saddened to see the end of a series you’ve come to love so much. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can bingewatch the entire series about the Golden State Killer after August 2nd.

Richard Jewell is another real-life story, and it looks like a very compelling one. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because it was all over the news in 1996. Jewell, a security guard, was falsely accused of bombing the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. This Clint Eastwood-directed movie from 2019 looks at the media circus that smeared Jewell’s name and reputation. Here’s the trailer:

Guess What Else Ends in August?

I May Destroy You. No, I’m not saying that to you. (I would never do such a thing.) It’s the name of an HBO original series I’ve been watching. If you’re a hardcore fan of Streaming Saturday – if such a thing even exists – then you might remember me mentioning this show. It’s a 2020 British comedy-drama-mystery TV series stars the multi-talented Michaela Coel. The last episode airs on August 24th, but is it a season or series finale? I guess I’ll find out eventually.

“I’m Batman”… on HBO Max, Anyway

Are you a fan of Gotham’s caped crusader? If so, you might be a member of the mob that ravaged HBO for getting rid of many 1980s/1990s Batman flicks. Well, you’ll be glad to know the execs listened. There are at least five Batman titles in August as well as some Harley Quinn content. How many other networks are that responsive to their viewers’ needs?

HBO Max Has Something for You

I’ll be the first to admit that I have eclectic tastes. My family calls it “eccentric,” but that’s a discussion for another time. The takeaway here is that most people will find plenty of content to stream on HBO Max, especially during the eighth month of the year.
