What’s New on HBO Max in May 2023

New titles coming to HBO Max in May 2023: 'The Other Two,' 'LEGO Batman Movie,' 'Parasite'

On May 23, HBO Max will officially become Max. Just … Max. However you feel about the coming name change, there’s plenty to look forward to: Namely, the entire 90 Day Fiancé universe will soon be available to stream alongside the DC franchise and Adult Swim, thanks to Max’s impending assimilation of the whole Discovery+ library. That means you can alternate binge-watching The Wire with season 44 of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. This is the future we were promised! Highbrow and lowbrow art given equal status! Dogs and cats living together!

But before May 23, HBO Max will continue adding new titles to its existing library as it always has, offering a mix of classic movies and recent favorites … and San Andreas. Arguably the most exciting addition to HBO Max in May is the third season of The Other Two, the hilarious series about two adult siblings (Drew Tarver and Heléne York) struggling to attain success while their teen brother—and in season 2, their mom (Molly Shannon)—stumbled into massive celebrity. Season 3 premieres on May 4, just in case you need a little Star Wars Day counter-programming.

Here’s the full list of everything coming to HBO Max in May 2023. Titles also arriving on HBO have been noted.
