Here’s what’s new on HBO and what’s leaving in May 2019

Spring has officially sprung, but HBO still has plenty of reasons for you to stay inside, including new episodes of popular shows and a multitude of hit movies.

May highlights include the final episode of award-winning series Game of Thrones, the premiere of the long-awaited Deadwood movie based on the series of the same name, and documentaries Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, What’s My Name | Muhammad Ali, and At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal.

Several high-profile films also make their HBO debut this month, including the animated feature Smallfoot, the PG-13 version of Deadpool 2, horror films Halloween and Insidious: The Last Key, and sci-fi horror sequel The Predator.

Of course, all of these additions to the HBO library mean the end to some films’ availability. This is your last chance to see Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending film Inception, as well as horror films The Descent and The Descent: Part 2, among other movies.

Read on for our list of new titles coming to HBO. (Bolded titles signify films and shows we recommend.) Interested in what’s on other streaming services? Be sure to check out our what’s new on Amazon Prime and what’s new on Netflix guides.
