15 Facts About What’s Streaming In May On HBO Max

The month of May brings forth the summer season, and HBO Max aims to bring the heat (or something to keep you inside watching streaming TV shows and movies). We mean, what better way to start the summer than by doing what you’ve been already doing since the pandemic started: watching streaming content.

Beaches will always be there (until global warming creates new ones), but many of these TV shows and films won’t be. Sure, they’ll be here this month, but who knows when the folks at Discovery or Warner Bros. or HBO or whatever corporation owns them this week will pull the plug? It’s best not to risk it and just sit in the nice air conditioning rather than subject your body to the inevitable skin cancer diagnosis from the sun.

So let’s take a peek to see what’s streaming on HBO Max, and learn some fun facts you can share with your fellow Maxers (that’s what HBO calls their subscribers, right?).
