• HBO Max is adding tons of great shows and movies in October, including Boogie Nights, The Matrix, The Mummy, Where the Wild Things Are, Us, and The God of High School.
  • Max Originals worth checking out: Charm City Kings and the West Wing reunion.
  • You can see all of the HBO Max arrivals and departures for October 2020 below.

One of the most intriguing aspects of HBO Max is that we never actually know what to expect from month to month. The only real constant is that a bunch of content is added to the library and a ton of content is removed, and that’s the case once again in October, as dozens of shows and movies are joining the service, including the long-awaited West Wing reunion that will feature original cast members and commentary from the likes of First Lady Michelle Obama, President Bill Clinton, and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda instead of commercials.
