New on HBO and HBO Max in May 2021

HBO has long been a reliable destination for some of the best shows on TV, and HBO Max has absolutely crushed it with their streaming library since launching last year, so as you’d probably expect, there are a whole bunch of new movies and shows you need to know arriving on HBO and HBO Max this month. And if you’re looking for something new to watch, but not sure where to start, we’ve got a handy rundown of all the new titles and premiere dates set for May 2021.

In the realm of movies, this month’s headliner is the day-and-date release of the new Angelina Jolie thriller Those Who Wish Me Dead, which arrives in theaters and on HBO Max on May 14. Written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, Yellowstone creator and Oscar-nominated writer of Sicario and Hell or High Water, the film stars Jolie as a survival expert who has to protect a young murder witness from assassins while also contending with the dangerous forest fire unfurling around them. So yeah, that’s probably going to be pretty dang intense!

Elsewhere, Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is finally making its streaming debut, after the wild mid-pandemic release date saga, and Wonder Woman 1984 is making a return to HBO Max after its limited premiere run back in December. If the new Mortal Kombat has you craving a revisit of the 1995 adaptation, you’ll find that version is also available this month – but be aware it’s a limited window, it’s also leaving this month, along with the 2021 version! And as usual, there’s a whole cavalcade of classics.

In the TV highlights, this month brings the new Jean Smart comedy vehicle Hacks, along with premieres for Gomorrah Season 4, Legendary Season 2, In Treatment Season 4 (now starring Orange Is the New Black favorite Uzo Aduba as the therapist fielding complicated doctor-patient relationships), and the two-part documentary The Crime of the Century. May also has finales for new HBO originals The Mare of Easttown and The Nevers, as well as Season 2 of A Black Lady Sketch Show.

Check out the complete list of new movies and shows on HBO Max below, along with their premiere dates.
