New TV Shows and Movies on HBO and HBO Max (September 2022)

The Vampire Diaries is now on HBO Max

The list of the best new HBO Max shows and movies in September isn't that long, but there are a few gems on there. Season 2 of the quirky and gothy bilingual series Los Espookys premieres on Sept. 16, the 1979 Iranian hostage situation is documented in the miniseries Hostages on Sept. 28, and Baz Luhrmann's Elvis came out earlier this month. Maybe you should just binge all eight seasons of The Vampire Diaries, which is now streaming on HBO Max. Or do what everyone else is doing and just keep up with House of the Dragon.

Below, we pulled together our picks for the month, plus a list of everything else coming to HBO and HBO Max in September, and everything that's leaving HBO Max, too. (As you might expect considering Warner Bros. Discovery is actively purging HBO Max's library, there's an unusually large number of titles expiring at the end of September, so add them to your queue now before they disappear.)

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.

Elvis (September 2)

Whether you count yourself as a fan of his or not, culture is unquestionably better when Baz Luhrmann gets to go wild and make a big-budget spectacle. His latest is the Elvis Presley biopic Elvis, a disorienting '50s-themed carnival ride condensed into a two-and-a-half-hour movie. Here, a star is born in Austin Butler, who gives what just might be the best film performance of the year as Presley, and it's made even more confounding by the fact that a gonzo Tom Hanks gives what is easily the worst film performance of the year, and definitely of his career, as Presley's mustache-twirling cartoon villain of a manager Tom Parker. But how am I supposed to criticize or care when Luhrmann, in all of his galaxy-brained ingenuity, decided to score a scene with a mash-up of "Viva Las Vegas" and Britney Spears' "Toxic"? What's going on in Elvis is bigger than all of us. You might as well give yourself over to it. There are a handful of the real Elvis' movies coming to HBO Max, too, including Jailhouse Rock and Elvis on Tour[Trailer]

Los Espookys (September 16)

Los Espookys, HBO's zany Spanish-language comedy about a group of friends who turn their love of horror into a peculiar business, deserves to be a huge hit. Julio Torres, Ana Fabrega, and Fred Armisen co-created and star in the series, which is finally releasing its second season after a long COVID-induced hiatus, and hopefully the world will finally come around to its many goth charms. There's nothing quite like it on TV, taking place in the cross-section between the real and the surreal, and relishing its own inherent oddness. [Trailer]

Magnolia Network Collection (September 30)

As a precursor to the forthcoming merger of HBO Max and Discovery+, a sizable selection of shows from Chip and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Network (streaming on Discovery+) is becoming available to stream on HBO Max on Sept. 30. That means people who signed up to watch Succession or House of the Dragon will also be able to watch the soothing home improvement stylings of America's sweethearts Chip and Jo without leaving the app. Joanna Gaines' ability to reimagine spaces is basically the exact opposite of Nathan Fielder's ability to recreate them, so a double feature binge of Fixer Upper and The Rehearsal might be a fun bit of counter-programming. -Liam Mathews
