What’s Worth Streaming: Here’s what’s new to HBO Max in October 2022, and what’s leaving


Summer may be long over, but HBO is all about awful vacations in October, reviving last year’s hit resort comedy “The White Lotus” and premiering a new season of the space-cruise comedy “Avenue 5.”

Mike White’s hilariously scathing satire “The White Lotus” (Oct. 30), which just cleaned up at the Emmy Awards, returns for a second season and moves to a new location of the fictional luxury hotel chain, in Sicily. The cast is mostly new too — though Emmy-winner Jennifer Coolidge will return — with F. Murray Abraham, Michael Imperioli, Aubrey Plaza, Sabrina Impacciatore and Tom Hollander.

In the future and far, far away, the space-cruise comedy “Avenue 5” (Oct. 10) returns for its second — and likely last — season. Armando Iannucci’s series first debuted way back in January 2020, and the pandemic forced long production delays. Hugh Laurie, Josh Gad, Zach Woods and Rebecca Front star, as clueless crewmembers and disgruntled passengers stuck together on a disastrous intergalactic cruise that veers off course after an accident, adding years to the trip.

Warner Bros. Discovery’s WBD, -1.37% HBO Max also has Season 3 of the newly rebranded “Batman” prequel series “Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler” (Oct. 6); “Fixer Upper: The Castle” (Oct. 4), a new series from Chip and Joanna Gaines as they restore a castle in Waco, Texas; and “The Vow, Part Two” (Oct. 17), a follow-up documentary series following the legal journeys of those involved with the NXIVM cult.

Max is also adding a ton of movies, including “Hoosiers,” “Juno,” “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping,” “Slacker” and “Terms of Endearment” (all Oct. 1), while losing some older series that were licensed from Comedy Central, such as “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Reno 911” and “Key & Peele” at the end of the month.

Here’s the full list of what’s coming and going, as of Sept. 25 (release dates are subject to change):
