  3. Are we going to be subject to never ending babbling of Bill Maher forever? Time to move on and get someone else, or just end it all together!

    We get it Republicans bad, liberals good! Enough of the same shit machine churning out the same show every Friday!!!! We’ve all heard enough…. The same exact message FOR YEARS NOW!

    Really, if anyone loved the sound of their own voice, its Bill Maher!

    • James /

      This response sounds like a pro Trump Russian robot! Bill Maher is a national treasure. You can go back to watching Russian TV if you don’t like what he’s got to say.

    • Jim D /

      Rob – no one is making you watch Real Time… and when it comes to loving the sound of his own voice, he is busy making Republicans look worse than bad, more like batsh*t crazy.

    • Linda Hanson /

      Totally agree. Bill Maher has past his prime. He has become one-sided and irrelevant.

  4. Christina Hernandez /

    Please back Capadocia. Ready season 4!

  5. Is there a release date for the Cormoran Strike series yet?

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      CORMORAN STRIKE is a BBC/HBO joint production. THe BBC has recently announced that the limited series will air in the UK starting August 27, 2017. So that means it could appear on HBO by the end of this year or early 2018 at the latest.

      • Barb Nikola /

        CRAP. Why do we have to wait for so long for good programs from BBC. Why so long a wait?

  6. Lizzy Schofield /

    will the defiant ones documentary be released on dvd?

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      We are sure that it will but I checked HBO Shop & Amazon for you and a DVD or Blu-Ray is not released as of yet.

  7. Michael /

    Insecure announced July 23 Season Two Premiere!

  8. Michael /

      Yes, it is halfway through a 30 installment run and I watch every week.

      • Scott Ritter /

        Thank you Jef! Any other Gems showing late summer – fall. I am pushing costumes to stores based on your licenses GoT. West World, I would love to have stores loaded up on costumes form their favorite shows that are fresh on their minds. Thanks again, scotty

  11. Janet Brown /

    When is The Deuce going to be shown?

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      It is coming this fall but no actual debut date has been set. So, we’d say mid-October. We will announce it when it becomes official.

      • I read the premiere will be held during the ‘Split Screens Festival’. Will it start airing then or will that be a “private” premiere? Source:

        • Jef Dinsmore /

          That is a special screening. THE DEUCE will not be premiering on HBO in June. They are late in submitting their press announcement about June’s schedule, but this series will not be on it.

          • That’s too bad. Anything David Simon touches is gold! Been looking forward to it since I first heard about it. Thanks for getting back to me. By the way – you seem to know the field, so: Do you know if there’s any word on whether the rumored Legacy of Ashes will become a reality?

          • Jef Dinsmore /

            According to what David Simon’s own website reveals the answer is “No” but then he hasn’t touched the site in a long while.

  12. doodlev /

    is grimm season 6 comming soon or

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Uh, wrong network and think it aired it final season already.

  13. Siegrid De Montigny /

    Where is season 2 of Outcast???????

  14. moneygame /

    Why the hell is GOT not airing until July? What a bunch of horseshit

  15. Shari Covens /

    Please, please, please continue THE BRINK! So good!

  16. Steven Mulroney /

    Too many pussified new shows. The young pope, sucks, big little lies, sucks, girls, sucks!!!! Time for more action…..

  17. Jim5757 /

    HBO line-up is politically correct fare with little to no entertainment value – SHO, which is also politically correct with a dose of the mainstream, offers entertainment for a more diverse community that is watchable on its own merit.

    • Bradley Adams /

      Huh? That’s crazy. The only notable show on showtime is shameless.which is absolutely not politically correct. hbo has game of thrones and westworld. There haven’t been two better shows imo.

  18. Bruce Robert's /

    when will be the next game of thrones marathon?

  19. Wasn’t girls on to be shown on february????? I’m sure I heard it from u guys ?!!! Why it’s tbd now?

  20. demonweber666 /

    Anyone know how to get the upcoming movies for February 2017 on HBO?

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      I’m not sure what you are asking. Do you want a list of the Saturday night premieres for Feb? A list of all the movies on the channel and its sites for the month?’s Schedule module can provide answers or you can clarify your inquiry here and we will assist.

  21. racewme /

    I hope you are bringing the 3D back soon. What a horrible time to remove it…Thanksgiving weekend???

    The 3D content is the only reason I kept HBO….

  22. where are the 3D movies? I always looked forward to new 3D movies, now there are none, what happened?


    One of the easiest decision I have ever made was when I accepted to get married to a man I thought was my soul mate, my lover for 2yrs. He was the most handsome and honest man I have ever encountered, he was so kind respectful to me and my entire family. He gave me the reason to spend my entire life with him. I enjoyed 3yrs of love and sweet romance as his wife before the devil came into our home, his ex-girlfriend worked voodoo on him, she made him show me the bad side of him and also caused our divorce. The most annoying part was when she tried to take my life spiritually and physically, fighting to ensure am thoroughly erased from my husband before she takes over. It was getting tensed till the extent that I couldn’t sleep both day and night because she must be there to trouble me.
    Story short, I used the only available options left which was Dr. Wakina @ {} before I lose everything including my life. Dr. Wakina was the last option because every other sources failed and his love spell worked wonders after 7days which saw the evil lady flee from us with immediate effect, the divorce case was reconciled within days as well.
    Since after the spell, I finally knew how to treat wicked and jealous people and a whole new lot of thing from Dr. Wakina. Happiness and joy has been in abundance in my family for the past 8months after the love spell. Thanks to dr. wakina’s love spell that works wonders {}.

  24. We cannot wait for “Fumes” to premier.

  25. Josh Jennifer /

    Am josh Jennifer from Sweden. I
    was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had
    resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got
    worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with
    his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on
    phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend
    has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years
    which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on
    therapists until I was introduced to Dr.Ade by a friend whom he
    helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence
    and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my
    boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us
    emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant
    friends. It’s a miracle I never believed it was possible because I had lost
    all hope until I found Dr.Ade. So that’s why I promised to share my
    testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.Ade for the
    excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in
    situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he
    has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too or call him

  26. Erica L. /

    Love the new series “The night of” Will there be a new series now that Episode 8 had such an anticlimactic end?

    • Selassie Pickney /

      How was the end anti-climactic? We’re so used to writers not wrapping up stories, we forget how stories are supposed to end.

  27. Aria Kumar /

    Really loved the Newsroom. I hope it wasn’t a ratings issue that drove the decision to cancel that show :(( Jeff Daniels was FANTASTIC as an ego-centric news anchor!

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Aaron Sorkin is the one who killed it himself.

    • shanauer /

      Agreed. But I LOVE anything by Aaron Sorkin.

    • Diana Bialkowski /

      Jeff Daniels as well as the other cast were fantastic and I wish you would bring the show back. I just finished watching The Wire in its entirety (5 seasons) and it was great. So if the Deuce is anything like it I will be watching. You could bring The Wire back also. Baltimore still has massive crime.

  28. Dylan /

    Will the free preview weekend be available in Canada??

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Not likely. You can easily find out though as it is underway. Search on your schedule guide of your cable or satellite provider and see if they have unscrambled the channel.

  29. Dan75 /

    Is HBO Go airing GoT as the same time on tv?

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      GAME OF THRONES will appear on HBONow/Go at the same time as it airs on TV. However, the streaming sites are NOT a part of the free preview weekend. You will have to have a subscription in order to watch on the sites.

  30. billy /

    it now looks like Westworld will start sun sep 11 instead of the summer

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      How do you know that?

      • billy /

        Well it looks like of the night will get the 9 o’clock summer slot. That series ends right before Labor Day. HBO takes a break Labor Day weekend for their series. Sunday, September 11. Would be when HBO would start up the fall lineup. I was one that thought Westworld would start in the summer but I guess extra time was needed for Westworld

        • Jef Dinsmore /

          I am not arguing the logic behind the premiere date it is just no official declaration that it will be WESTWORLD..

          Though we all hope for it sooner than later its actual arrival is one of the great mysteries still. Half of what you read states it will appear yet in 2016 while others say it will make a great launch for Winter 2017.

          WESTWORLD has been back in production for a while and only had a final few episodes to shoot so it could easily make it in 2016 yet if post-production work is not overly extensive. We all eagerly await.

          • billy /

            I agree, It my pure speculation that WESTWORLD will start in Sept. Though, Hbo web site has WESTWORLD 2016 and with production ending soon, my guess ,is now WestWorld starts this fall. The Deuce and 2nd season of Vinyl this winter… but will see. Maybe more info will be provided prior to sunday night premier of GOT

    • xyz /

      i hope its 10pm…..twd will be on in oct at 9pm

  31. Kaguya /

    wow almost forgot about games of thrones airdate just like DD, just 4 more days left.

  32. Jessica Alves /

    When will Girls season 6 start shooting and when will it air? Any clues?

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Usually something pops up where Lena a crew are seen filming in NYC, but so far nothing. As for air date we are assuming that the final season will roll around this same time next year.

  33. Youssef Alhalwagii /

    When is this Dark hunters series gonna be released starring Chris Hemsworth and Colin O’donogune or whatever??

  34. Thatsmia /

    I dont see anything about Issa Rae’s series, insecure..was expecting to see it under in
    development. Any updates on it??

  35. TimSPC /

    What will be on Sunday nights after Game of Thrones finishes its season?

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      HBO has not officially announced that far ahead, but we are still saying that WESTWORLD will be the summer drama hour. Most of its premiere season is ready and they have resumed production already to complete the remaining episodes in the production.

      If we are wrong then likely a couple of the limited series could slip into the schedule to fill the void before THE LEFTOVERS airs in the fall.

  36. katie /

    does anyone know what song that is playing during the promo?

  37. rudster69 /

    When will season 7 Game of Thrones air?

  38. Masha Yastrebova /

    the knick HAaaaaaaaaaa the show is dead

  39. season 4 Banshee any word

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      BANSHEE will return for its eight-episode fourth and final season Jan. 29, 2016, exclusively on CINEMAX.

  40. Fucking BALLERS instead of Looking or The Brink?????

    Thanks. I feel better now.

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Yeah, I wish we were privy to HBO’s decisions on what stays and what goes.

  41. jholgate /

    Should I torrent Game of Thrones, or get a subscription to HBO Go? :-D
    Seriously, though I have Kabletown, but I’d rather pay you guys direct…

  42. J•••••a /

    I miss boardwalk empire

  43. Jasoomian /

    Cinemax has a series called QUARRY in post-production….

  44. Matt Eagan /

    Will there be a “True Detective, Season 3?” If so, any ETA for its premiere? The first season was absolutely phenomenal! Woody and Matthew had awesome chemistry! The second season, though not horrible, left much to be desired after such an amazing 1st season. I think a Brad Pitt/Morgan Freeman cast would be great for a show of this genre (Think back to the movie “Seven”). Or how about a Tom Hanks/Liam Neeson, or even a Al Pachino/Robert Deniro reunion? Personally, I couldn’t get enough of the first season, and I pray they don’t end this series after laying an egg in season 2!

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Check out our Yearender/Speculation post for our thoughts on TRUE DETECTIVE. We don’t think it will appear in 2016 at all.

  45. This schedule is listing outdated news as 2015 schedule information. It says The Wire is running in marathon Dec 26, but that’s from 2014, not 2015 as described here.

  46. Any news on the foundation series rumored way back when?

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Sadly, there is not any word. That is a colossal undertaking and if it happens it will take a long while to write the screenplay alone I would think. We will jump on any news the second we have any.

  47. Brad Delaney /

    Any word on when “Sesame Street” season 46 debuts on HBO?

  48. dragonfan /

    we don’t have internet & would like to watch reruns of game of thrones….any idea when they will start the reruns??

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Sadly, with HBO’s whole 2016 season pushed back we don’t even know when the next season will premiere let alone see any reruns.

    • nick4158 /

      get down to you’re local library and watch it there, that’s probably how you’re making this comment, right?

  49. Kelly Idzi /

    Did I just watch 7 season of true blood, for it to just end like that!!! Shocking!!! At least they could of done a few more episodes!!!

  50. dannielle hankin /

    Where is the live action adaptation of the manga “monster”?

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Sadly, we have not heard anything. It is supposed to be by del Toro and he always seems to have so many irons in the fire that he never can keep up with them all.

  51. paka lolo /

    Need more True Blood

  52. Kathleen Robertson /

    1st time since 1997 considering canceling; Newsroom should have stayed, then True Blood gets a little stale & gone. Where’s shows Paquin was going to do…PLEASE look at Sarah Durant books HUGE variety reading thru all. East of China Sea! Great books out there waiting for creativity to bring to TV

  53. Capadocia – why did HBO cancel it. Should seriously consider bringing it back.

    • Gomorra76 /

      Couldn’t agree with you more! Currently rewatching it all again.In my top 5 shows of all time! Alot of people didn’t like season 3,so I doubt they will bring it back.I didn’t mind s3,just wasn’t as good as the first two.

  54. shyla /

    Not sure which idiot thought it was a good idea to cancel boardwalk empire, second best show they have under GOT. Disappointed.

    • where else could the story have gone????? they pretty much exhausted themselves because they were trying to stay close to the true history…..

  55. Augustus /

    I would love to see a revival/ spin off of Rome showing the reign of Octavian, perhaps past Tiberius into the rule of Caligula

  56. Looking forward to ‘The Leftovers’ returning.

  57. spidermonkey /

    Bring back Kenny Powers… East Bound and Down.

    • Jef Dinsmore /

      Kenny Powers is not returning anytime soon, but the next best person is when Danny McBride returns to HBO with VICE PRINCIPALS.

  58. bcanndid /

    SO sad to see “The Newsroom” has run its course. That was a series I was hoping would be around for years. SO well written, SO well executed. Sadly, not even a full final season…..
