10 Most Anticipated HBOMax Shows Coming in Fall 2021 | ScreenRant

There's no doubt that HBO Max has seriously proven itself as a streaming heavyweight. With cultural sensations like Game of Thrones, Euphoria, and, more recently, Mare of Easttown, HBO Max is showing up as a streaming platform worth tuning into.

While second, third, fifth, and even eleventh seasons of HBO faves like We're Here, Succession, Insecure, and Curb Your Enthusiasm will be arriving just as the weather cools, HBO Max is also debuting some fun, fresh, and fervent series this fall.

10 The Sex Lives of College Girls

Mindy Kaling is back, back, back again with another comedy series viewers won't be able to wait to watch. There have been quite a few projects Mindy Kaling has worked on over the years, showcasing her producing, writing, and acting chops. As a result, fans are expecting nothing less than brilliance from The Sex Lives of College Girls, created by none other than Kaling.

This Max Original comedy series follows four roommates as they navigate their lives as university students in Vermont. The 13-part series will touch on all the same experiences real-life college students go through, with a particular emphasis on sex.

9 Station Eleven

Though Station Eleven was published back in 2014, Emily St. John Mandel somehow managed to pen a novel a little too relevant to today's times. Now, in 2021, HBO Max isn't letting the parallels between fiction and real-life stop them from releasing this Max Original limited drama series.

Much like the novel it's based on, Station Eleven will explore the lives of those who survived a deadly global flu that wiped out a majority of the world's population. Though purely science fiction, this series will not be for the faint of heart.

8 Landscapers 

Viewers looking to add another true-crime series to their autumnal watchlists won't want to skip Landscapers. This HBO limited series is ripe with murder, mystery, and dark humor as it hashes out a peculiar story, which the show creators pieced together after extensive research and interviews with the real-life couple.

7 One Perfect Shot

Based on the viral Twitter account of the same name, One Perfect Shot is for movie buffs looking for an immersive moviemaking experience chock full of industry knowledge and tidbits. Not to mention, this series is produced by prolific director Ava DuVernay.

6 Finding Magic Mike

The Magic Mike competition dance show produced by Channing Tatum is finally coming to a small screen near you! Finding Magic Mike introduces a new competition element to the same franchise that brought viewers Magic Mike, Magic Mike XXL, and Magic Mike Live Las Vegas.

The Max Original unscripted reality series will transform a group of men into real-life Magic Mikes all in the name of a good ol' fashioned confidence boost. The winner of the series will not only nab a cash prize but also a spot on the Magic Mike Live Las Vegas stage

5 Sort Of

What the television world needs is more shows centered around gender-fluid characters. Luckily Sort Of is here to provide exactly that. Created by showrunners and executive producers Bilal Baig and Fab Filippo, this eight-episode Max Original comedy series is big-hearted in all the best ways.

Sort Of is a coming-of-age story following Sabi Mehboob (Baig), a gender-fluid millennial juggling multiple identities like sexy bartender, youngest child in a large Pakistani family, and parent to a found family. Get ready to feel all the feels in this exploration of identities and labels.

4 Ten Year Old Tom

All aboard the animation station! That's right, HBO Max is once again adding to its growing list of animated series with Ten Year Old Tom. This Max Original adult comedy series was created, written, and executive produced by The Life and Times of Time creator Steve Dildarian.

Each episode features Tom, an ill-fated ten-year-old continuously thrust into the looming world of grownups. This show has it all: drug-dealing bus drivers, the corruption of youth, and nefarious influences at every turn.

3 The Way Down

Churches come in all shapes and sizes, and the Remnant Fellowship Church is no exception. However, unlike other places of worship, this one originated from  Gwen Shamblin Lara's religious weight-loss program, the Weigh Down Workshop. The Way Down is a Max Original docu-series that dives deeper into the inner workings of this unique church and its equally unique congregation.

The first three episodes will premiere on September 30, with the rest of the series set to follow in 2022. Originally, the entire documentary was slated to be released in one go. However, following the plane crash that killed Lara, the series shifted to cover the unfolding story.

2 Scenes From A Marriage

Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac introduce a fresh take to Ingmar Bergman’s classic Swedish series of the same name in this HBO Original limited series. Scenes From A Marriage follows a modern-day couple as they grapple with issues like love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage, and divorce.

Although Scenes From A Marriage makes its debut a little before the official start of autumn (September 12), no fall release list would be complete without this complex five-part drama.

1 And Just Like That…

And just like that, And Just Like That... is almost here. Soon the outfits, chats with friends, and New York City escapades viewers hope to see for Carrie in the Sex and the City reboot won't just be a dream but a reality.

The sequel series picks up the lives of best friends Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte (minus Samantha) as they navigate life and friendship in their 50s. Longtime fans will get to be a fly on the wall of the quartet-turned-trio for ten episodes, each of which will introduce new additions to Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte's social circle.
