Everything leaving Max (formerly HBO Max) in October 2023

Two men wearing black hoodies and masked, one wielding a mallet and the other a hammer in a scene from Gangs of London.

All good things must come to an end: romances, seasons, even free Twitter (sorry, X), etc. That’s never been more true for streaming content libraries. Every month, as more movies and shows are added to each of the many streamers out there, it seems just as much content leaves as well.

Max isn’t immune to this vicious cycle, and in October 2023, a fair amount of films and shows are leaving the service for an undetermined amount of time. From a couple of Exorcist movies to the Dolly Parton classic 9 to 5 to the so bad, it’s good teen soap Dawson’s Creek, there’s a lot of good stuff leaving, so check out the list below and try to watch some of these gems before they leave Max for good (or at least a long while).

Editor’s note: This list may not be comprehensive and is subject to change by the network/streamer.

Ben Affleck in Gone Girl.

The holiday weekend is far from over, but time is running out if you want to see some great movies on Max before they take off for other streamers at the end of the month.

Our monthly round-up of what's new on Max always includes a list of what's leaving as well.

Where to watch WWE Survivor Series: WarGames 2023 live stream
Randy Orton stands on the turnbuckle and puts his arms up.

For WWE fans, November means one thing: Survivor Series. As one of the WWE's Big Five events, Survivor Series is the second longest premium live event in the company behind WrestleMania. In 2022, Survivor Series was rebranded as Survivor Series: WarGames to spotlight the men's and women's WarGames matches. The theme returns this year for the 2023 Survivor Series: WarGames.

WarGames is one of the most innovative matches in the WWE. Teams of four to five superstars compete across two rings, side by side, inside a massive steel cage. Two superstars start the match, and every couple of minutes, another superstar enters until both teams are inside the cage. It's one of the most chaotic and exciting matches in professional wrestling.
