New HBO and Max Shows and Movies in January 2024

We're heading to Night Country

Allison Picurro

It's like the old saying goes: New year, new stuff to watch on Max. January is starting strong with the premiere of True Detective: Night Country, starring Jodie Foster and Kali Reis. It's the fourth season of the crime drama overall, and this time, they're in Alaska. Also premiering this month are the seventh season of Rick and Morty, the Jason Momoa travel series On the Roam, and the final season of the sweet and underrated Sort Of.

Below, we pulled together our picks for the month, plus a list of what's coming to HBO and Max in January.

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

True Detective: Night Country (Jan. 14, HBO)

Bundle up: True Detective is headed to the Last Frontier. After almost five years away, the hit HBO anthology series is returning for its long-awaited fourth season, and it's moving the action to Alaska, a far cry from the hot and sweaty climates the show used to call home. Subtitled Night Country, this season stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as a pair of detectives tasked with investigating a mysterious case — the disappearance of eight men who operate an Arctic research station — during the long winter night. Fans of great television should note that The LeftoversChristopher Eccleston and Fleabag's Fiona Shaw are also in the cast. Here's everything we know about Season 4. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer] [Review]

Sort Of Season 3 (Jan. 18, Max)

The third and final season of Bilal Baig's tender, low-key dramedy finds Sabi (Baig) processing their particularly complicated grief after the death of their father. Free of his expectations, they begin to confront old and new questions about their identity. It'll be sad to say goodbye to one of TV's most underrated gems, but if we're confident in any show's ability to stick the landing, it's this one. -Allison Picurro [Trailer]
