HBO Max is the biggest new streaming service to debut in 2021, and while we can't get it just yet in the UK, a lot of its original content has come over here anyway.
The streaming service has now uploaded a new sizzle reel teasing everything coming across the next year, and with it a first look at Kaley Cuoco in The Flight Attendant season 2.
Like all the other shows lined up, very little footage is included, but they've got a lot of things to include. There's Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon, starring Doctor Who's Matt Smith, and new seasons of Euphoria, His Dark Materials, Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, The Righteous Gemstones, Raised by Wolves, Legendary, Bill Hader's Barry, Hacks, A Black Lady Sketch Show, and Westworld.
Other new shows premiering include The Gilded Age, set during the 1880s boom of New York City and starring Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon and Carrie Coon, among others.
Anchorman director Adam McKay's new project Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty sees him reunite with Step Brothers' John C Reilly to tell the story of one of the most exciting times in basketball history (unless you're a Detroit Pistons fan).
The Time Traveler's Wife is getting a new adaptation, this time starring The Inbetweeners Movie and Divergent star Theo Jones, and Thrones alumni Rose Leslie. The 2007 novel Integrity is also being adapted, titled The White House Plumbers and starring Woody Harrelson, Justin Theroux, Domnhall Gleeson and another Thrones star in Lena Headey.
We Own This City is another adaptation, focusing on the public furore that erupts when a young Black man mysteriously dies in police custody. The Punisher's Jon Bernthal and Loki's Wunmi Mosaku star. Similarly to Plumbers, it's going to be a limited series.
Happy Valley's Sarah Lancashire plays TV chef Julia Child in new series Julia, The Mandalorian's Rosario Dawson stars in comic adaptation DMZ, while Peacemaker is spin-off focusing on John Cena's The Suicide Squad character.
WandaVision's Elizabeth Olsen stars in Love & Death, in which she plays a real-life housewife who killed her friend with an axe, while Colin Firth also gets into the real-life crime drama spirit with The Staircase (related to the documentary). On the other end of the scale, new Sesame Street and Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai should keep the kids entertained.
Finally, Our Flag Means Death is a comedy about pirates (!!) that stars both Taika Waititi and Rhys Darby, and that's all we need to know to be sold.
A lot of HBO Max's content comes to Sky's channels in the UK, while the service itself may not come over here for a while yet due to various deals.
