What’s New on HBO in October

This October, we’ve got a line-up of series, movies, and documentaries that you’ll be falling for all season long, available on HBO and HBO Max. New fan favorites like the genre-bending series Lovecraft Country and docuseries The Vow release their season finales this month, while we gear up for new comedy series How To with John Wilson and new drama series The Undoing starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant.

We’re all about the Halloween spirit this month. Whether it’s finding your costume inspiration from Cats (premiering October 10) or binging the night away with a scary movie marathon, including Black Christmas (premiering October 31), we support any way you choose to indulge in it.

Keep reading below to get the full list of what’s coming and what’s leaving HBO in October.
