What’s new on HBO and what’s leaving in January 2019

As a new year begins, HBO has lots of reasons for you to get cozy inside when the weather’s cold, including new episodes of popular shows and a multitude of hit movies.

January highlights include the premiere of the third season of True Detective, HBO’s award-winning anthology crime drama, which introduces Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali as the star of the new season. Also debuting in January is the HBO original film Brexit starring Benedict Cumberbatch, which chronicles the polarizing debate and figures involved in the United Kingdom’s potential departure from the European Union.

Several high-profile films also make their HBO debut this month, including heist franchise sequel Ocean’s 8, which reboots the popular series with a cast led by Sandra Bullock. Popular comedies Super Troopers 2 and Tag also arrive on HBO in January.

Of course, all of these additions to the HBO library mean the end to some films’ availability. This is your last chance to see blockbuster horror film It, as well as spy adventure Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Oscar-winning drama The Blind Side.

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.
