In parts of Southern California, there is a season dubbed “June Gloom.” During that time, the usually sunny part of the United States tends to get overcast and cloudy, which is pretty rare compared to the actual seasonal weather that most of the country gets to experience. This isn’t a complaint, just go with us here.

During that time, nothing beats just staying inside and seeing what’s on HBO Max. Scrolling through their various hubs and seeing what type of entertainment is just waiting online for you to just sit back and enjoy while the shade falls over the usually dry ground. But you don’t have to wait for weather to be an excuse to just stay inside and Max it up (as kids would NEVER say).

Take a look at some of what is coming to the HBO Max streaming service this month, along with some fun facts to go along with them.
