It’s not HBO Max, it’s HBO.

While the lines between WarnerMedia’s streaming platform and its premium cable network continue to blur, there’s still a brand behind new series, movies, and projects housed under HBO prime TV OK, OK, no more modifiers — it’s just HBO, and typically you know an HBO original series when you see one.

With that in mind, we here at IndieWire want to help you sort through the increasing array of viewing options on HBO Max and find what you’re probably looking for anyway: the best HBO has to offer. There’s plenty to appreciate in what HBO is churning out now, and there are even more gems produced in the past. So each month, we’ll highlight a selection of new, high-profile HBO series and a themed assortment of classics from HBO’s vast library of originals. Somewhere within the two categories, there’s bound to be a show or two that merits your viewing consideration, and just in case there’s not: We’re also including a few bonus picks from the HBO Max side of things.

If you’re looking for movie recommendations, be sure to click over to IndieWire’s film streaming guide for newly released titles, and if you’re on the prowl for TV picks outside of HBO Max, our monthly TV streaming guide has you covered.
