Here’s What’s New on HBO and HBO Max in May 2022

As usual, HBO Max’s May lineup is packed with must-watch titles, new and old

Season 2 of the Emmy-winning comedy “Hacks,” the debut of Colin Firth’s true-crime drama “The Staircase” and the streaming return of “The Matrix: Resurrections” all await HBO Max subscribers in May. If you’re looking for something new to watch or wondering what’s on HBO Max this month, not to worry, we’ve got the full rundown.

There are several must-watch new TV shows on both HBO and HBO Max this month, new and returning. Acclaimed Jean Smart comedy “Hacks” returns for Season 2 on May 12. As for the new debuts, May sees the premieres for HBO Max’s “The Staircase” on May 5, starring Colin Firth as Michael Peterson in the true-crime limited series, as well as the HBO premiere of Steven Moffat’s (”Doctor Who”) series adaptation of “The Time Traveler’s Wife” on May 15.

New films this month include the streaming return of “The Matrix: Resurrections” and streaming premieres for the much-maligned 2021 musical adaptation “Dear Evan Hansen” and M. Night Shyamalan’s latest twisty horror film, “Old.” And, of course, there are plenty of familiar favorites arriving in the library this month, including “The Big Sleep,” Wes Anderson’s debut feature “Bottle Rocket” and the director’s cut of “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” among many others.

Documentary fans can look forward to the premiere of “HBO’s Spring Awakening: Those You’ve Known” on May 3 and “George Carlin’s American Dream” — though the exact premiere date for that one is TBA.
