HBO and HBO Max's New Shows and Movies in July 2022

Issa Rae's latest for HBO gets into the rap game

HBO is welcoming back one of its greats in July: behold the return of Issa Rae, creator of Insecure, whose new comedy Rap Sh¡t premieres July 21 on HBO Max. In it, a pair of friends, played by comedian Aida Osman and Miami rapper KaMillion, decide to form a rap group. Wildness ensues. Other show highlights include Nathan Fielder's new cringey experiment The Rehearsal, the Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward Ethan Hawke-directed docuseries The Last Movie Stars, the Pretty Little Liars spin-off Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, and the second season of the Emmy-winning animated series Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal.

For the family, the streaming debut of The Bob's Burgers Movie will be appointment viewing when it's out July 12 on HBO Max, but there are also plenty of other films to watch, including Edgar Wright's Last Night in Soho, the Kate Bush-ified She's Having a Baby, and Mad Max: Fury Road (July 9). 

Below, we pulled together our picks for the month, plus a list of everything else coming to HBO and HBO Max in July, and everything that's leaving HBO Max, too.

The Biggest New HBO and HBO Max Movies and Shows in July

Nathan Fielder, The Rehearsal

Nathan Fielder, The Rehearsal


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.

Last Night in Soho (July 1)

Woman of the moment Anya Taylor-Joy stars in Edgar Wright's psychological thriller about an aspiring fashion designer (Thomasin Mackenzie) who finds herself mysteriously able to travel back to the 1960s, where she meets a singer (Taylor-Joy), who may or may not be in danger as the past and present begin to blend. [Trailer]

The Bob's Burgers Movie (July 12)

In many ways, The Bob's Burgers Movie is just one particularly long episode of Bob's Burgers, but who cares? Bob's Burgers is consistently good after 12 (and counting) seasons, so spending some more time with the Belchers isn't exactly a chore. It has a plot — the family is trying to save the restaurant from the latest threat of financial ruin, this time in the form of a sinkhole that opens up in front of the building — but it's mostly a showcase for this creative team's talent for great musical scenes. [Trailer]

The Rehearsal (July 15)

Something about me is that I will always implicitly place my trust in Nathan Fielder when it comes to entertainment. Here, in his follow-up to his great series Nathan for You, Fielder returns to help everyday people prepare for life's biggest moments through carefully constructed rehearsals. I don't really know what that means just yet, but I can't wait to find out. [Trailer]     

Rap Sh¡t (July 21, HBO Max)

Phew, Issa Rae is back on TV. Well, kind of. She's not in her Insecure follow-up, but she did create this comedy series about two estranged best friends who decide to start a rap group. No one is better at nailing the complicated ebb and flow of female friendship, so this should be great. [Trailer]

The Last Movie Stars (July 21)

This one's for all the classic film freaks out there. Ethan Hawke directs this docuseries about the lives, careers, and marriage of Hollywood icons Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. It's a whole six parts long, so strap in.

Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin (July 28, HBO Max)

It simultaneously feels like five minutes and 18 years since Pretty Little Liars ended, but that doesn't really matter, because it's now being rebooted, kind of. It follows a new group of teen girls being terrorized by an anonymous person seeking revenge for sins committed by their parents two decades earlier. Uh oh! Though it's set in a new town and focuses on a new group of liars, it somehow takes place within the original Pretty Little Liars universe. [Trailer]      

Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal Season 2 (July TBD, HBO Max)

Adult Swim's Emmy-winning series takes its time. The first five episodes of Season 1 were released in 2019, and the last five were released a year later. Season 2 is coming sometime this month, but as always with this incredible series, it will be worth the wait. The animated series follows a caveman named Spear and his unlikely but incredibly loyal friendship with a Tyrannosaurus named Fang as they struggle to survive a brutal prehistoric world populated by man-eating dinosaurs, savage primates, and eerie supernatural beings. There's no real dialogue, but it's a tribute to Tartakovsky's storytelling and direction that the emotional impact is so visceral, making it one of the best shows on TV, animated or not. Episodes will air on Adult Swim first and stream on HBO Max the next day. [Trailer]
