What’s Worth Streaming: Here’s everything new coming to HBO Max in August 2022, and what’s leaving


Here be dragons.

The final season of “Game of Thrones” in 2019 left many viewers with a sour taste, but HBO is placing a big bet that fans will flock back to the intrigue and infighting of Westeros (and its many dragons) in the prequel series “House of the Dragon” (Aug. 21).

With a sprawling cast that includes Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, Paddy Considine, Olivia Cooke and Milly Alcock, the new series takes place 200 years before the events of “Game of Thrones,” and details a war of succession that tears apart the Targaryen dynasty. It’s based on George R.R. Martin’s book “Fire & Blood,” and has a production cost higher than the original series (dragons don’t come cheap, you know). It’s the first of many planned “Game of Thrones” spinoffs by HBO, so get ready for much more to come.

HBO Max also has Season 2 of “Industry” (Aug. 1), the addictive drama about young workers at a top investment bank in London; Season 2 of “Sweet Life: Los Angeles,” (Aug. 4), the unscripted series about a group of friends from South L.A.; a new season of the behind-the-scenes NFL docuseries “Hard Knocks” (Aug. 9), in training camp with the Detroit Lions this year; and movies such as “Blue Velvet,” “Ex Machina,” “Slow West” (all Aug. 1) and Oscar-winner “Belfast” (Aug. 5), while the Harry Potter movies are set to depart at the end of the month.

Here’s the full list of what’s coming and going, as of July 21 (release dates are subject to change):
