What’s new on HBO and HBO Max and what’s leaving in September 2020

There are plenty of options for compelling television these days, but HBO and its partner streaming service HBO Max have plenty of reasons to hold your attention, including new episodes of popular shows and a multitude of hit movies.

September sees a swath of new and classic movies come to HBO and HBO Max. Whether you’re looking for recent hits like Michael B. Jordan’s Just Mercy or The Invisible Man starring Elisabeth Moss, or older classics like Midnight Run or Fatal Attraction, September offers something for everybody.

September also sees the premiere of Raised by Wolves, a Ridley Scott-produced epic sci-fi drama that centers on two androids who are tasked with raising human children on a mysterious new planet. It’s been billed as part Westworld and part Ex Machina, and with Ridley Scott behind it, it’s sure to be weirdly provocative.

Read on for our list of new titles coming to HBO and HBO Max in September. (Boldface 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.
