Despite the end of April being in smelling distance, HBO and HBO Max aren't done with new shows and movies. Tonight marks The Wire creator David Simon's return to Baltimore with We Own This City, following the corruption in the city's real-life Gun Trace Task Force. Plus, Jon Bernthal plays a cop on the take, which is like the most perfect casting ever. Also yet to air this month is Season 2 of Cristin Milioti's Made for Love (April 28) and the second half of the docuseries The Way Down (April 28), featuring one of the greatest hairstyles of all time. 

That will wrap up a busy April, which saw The Batman come home to roost on streaming mid-month, as well as the returns of Kaley Cuoco's The Flight Attendant and Bill Hader's Barry. As for new series, don't miss out on Michael Mann's Tokyo Vice or the dark comedy The Baby, about an adorable little baby... who kills people! 

Below, we have our picks for the month, as well a list of everything that's coming to HBO and HBO Max in April, and everything that's leaving HBO Max, too. Perhaps you can find something down there that isn't so dark.

The New Movies and Shows to Watch on HBO and HBO Max in April

HBO Max streams all HBO shows and movies when they debut on HBO. But not all shows and movies on HBO Max make it to HBO. We'll designate HBO Max exclusives where appropriate.

Tokyo Vice (April 7, HBO Max)

Michael Mann is back on TV, baby! Or, behind some TV, rather. The Miami Vice mastermind takes on his first TV show in over a decade with this noirish crime drama based on the memoirs of an American journalist (played by Ansel Elgort) who covered the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department. [Trailer]     

The Flight Attendant (April 21, HBO Max)

Cassie (Kaley Cuoco) is sober in Season 2 of HBO Max's big hit, but that isn't stopping her from getting caught up in murders! Now living in Los Angeles as a flight attendant and working a side gig as a CIA asset (only in television, folks), Cassie witnesses another murder on assignment and becomes wrapped up in more mayhem in the zippy comedy. [Trailer]     

Barry (April 24)

Barry last aired in 2019. 2019! That's a long time to stew over the revelations of Season 2, when Bill Hader's hitman showed his true self in a finale that saw Barry popping caps and Gene (Henry Winkler) realizing who Barry really was — a murderer first, community theater actor second. Season 2 saw the dark comedy firing on all cylinders and distilling tragedy into one of the best shows of that year. Expect more of the same in Season 3. [Trailer] 

The Baby (April 24)

Ever think your baby is a monster? In this British dark comedy, it is. A 38-year-old woman with no intentions of being a mother, despite her breeding friends' nudges, finds herself with a baby who might be the spawn of Satan at worst, a supernatural menace at best. [Trailer]     

We Own This City (April 25)

The Wire is the greatest show of all time (maybe)! Two of the men behind it, David Simon and George Pelecanos, return to Baltimore with We Own This City, a limited series tracing the real rise and fall of the Baltimore Police Department's Gun Trace Task Force and — say it with me — corruption in the police department as a symptom of a city's institutional decay. Jon Bernthal, Jamie Hector, and Josh Charles star. [Trailer]
