HBO Max has lots of exciting new movies and series in store for this year.
All the HBO Max Original Movies and TV Shows Coming in 2022
HBO Max has a lot that’s worth getting excited about. Although the streaming service is still relatively new, having launched in spring 2020, and doesn’t have as massive an output of original content as Netflix, the Max Originals library is growing steadily with plenty of new movies and series heading to the streamer this year. Here, we’re rounding up the slate of titles on the way—from popular shows that are coming back for another season to brand-new series. Just note that on this list you’ll find strictly HBO Max Originals—not HBO series (such as House of the Dragon), although they do stream on the platform. We’ll keep updating this list as more shows and movies are announced throughout the year.
HBO max coming soon 2022 – JULY 28
New documentary. If you missed Rex Miller and Sam Pollard’s Arthur Ashe documentary when it aired on CNN, good news: It’s coming to HBO Max at the end of July. Aside from being the country’s first great male tennis star, the course of Ashe’s life set him on a path of political and medical activism, outspoken against South African apartheid and advocating for victims of AIDS.
Season 3. Everybody’s favorite supervillain is coming back for even more mayhem. The latest season of the animated DC series finds Harley and her girl Poison Ivy on an “eat, bang, kill” tour, so get ready for chaos and a whole lot of fun.

New movie. Music-video director Calmatic (who’s known for helming “Old Town Road” and working with major rappers) is making his feature-length directorial debut with this LeBron James-produced remake of the 1991 movie House Party. Definitely look forward to an incredible soundtrack with this one.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin
New series. Pretty Little Liars, which ran from 2010 to 2017, was one of Freeform’s biggest successes. Based on Sara Shepard’s YA novels, it spawned many spinoffs, although none were as successful as the original series about teens Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily, who were terrorized by the mysterious “A” after their friend Allison disappeared. Now, the show is getting rebooted by Lindsay Calhoon Bring and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) with a new cast in a different town and another set of melodramatic horrors. “Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead,” baby!
