New HBO and Max Shows and Movies in June 2023

You are not ready for The Idol

Tim Surette

HBO Max became just plain 'ol Max last month, but it still has all the same great content... minus everything CEO David Zaslav has been scuttling for tax breaks, of course. (Raised by Wolves, we miss you!) This month features one of TV's most talked about (for the wrong reasons) shows of the year, The Idol, debuting on June 4. Expect the internet on June 5 to be filled with some extremely passionate discourse about The Weeknd's new series about the music industry. Later this month is the return of And Just Like That..., featuring the highly anticipated return of Kim Cattrall as Samantha, and the outlandish comedy The Righteous Gemstones

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

Last month's guide: New HBO Max Shows and Movies (May 2023)

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.

The Idol Season 1 (June 4, HBO)

I hope you like messy! The headlines surrounding Euphoria creator Sam Levinson's new drama have nothing to do with the actual show and all to do with how crappy — or not crappy, if you ask co-creator and star The Weeknd — production on the series has gone. A Rolling Stone exposé on The Idol painted behind-the-scenes turmoil that included financial irresponsibility, gross dudes being gross, and whittling down the music business drama into a "rape fantasy" of star Lily-Rose Depp. As for what the show is actually about, Depp plays an aspiring pop star who gets taken under the wing of a self-help guru/cult leader (The Weeknd). [Trailer]

Avatar: The Way of Water (June 7, Max)

James Cameron's version of grown-up Smurfs comes home to be watched just the way he intended it to be: on the cracked screen of your iPhone while you're on the toilet. It will also stream on Disney+ the same day. [Trailer]

The Righteous Gemstones Season 3 (June 18, HBO)

Your sibling rivalry for ultimate power doesn't have to end with the Roys of Succession. Jesse, Judy, and Kelvin Gemstone (Danny McBride, Edi Patterson, and Adam DeVine) get their shot at heading up the megachurch in the latest season of HBO's ridiculous comedy, but guess what? Being in control ain't all that it's cracked up to be, despite the monster trucks and NASCAR autos the trailer shows. Also coming this season: Steve Zahn playing a truly batsh-- right-wing nutso. [Trailer]

And Just Like That... Season 2 (June 22, Max)

The Sex and the City sequel is rolling out another season of pallin' around the town, and this time it's bringing back a familiar, fan-favorite face. John Corbett will make an appearance this season, reprising his role as Aidan Shaw, the yin to Mr. Big's yang in Carrie's (Sarah Jessica Parker) love life. Also showing up will be Candice Bergen and Tony Danza. [Trailer]

Warrior Season 3 (June 29, Max)

The former Cinemax action drama returns with fists clenched after the massive race riots of Season 2 turned the power balance of Chinatown upside-down, leaving the city's tongs to fight for what's left while the police enforce brutal laws meant to keep the Chinese down. In other words, more badass punching and kicking is coming your way. This underrated series is a must for martial-arts fans. [Trailer]

Watch House of the Dragon, And Just Like That..., and More $9.99 at Max
