HBO Max is loaded with new original series and library movies in January 2023, and will kick off its first live-sports programming.
The most anticipated addition may be “The Last of Us” (Jan. 15), a post-apocalyptic drama starring Pedro Pascal (“The Mandalorian”) and Bella Ramsey (“Game of Thrones”) as a pair trying to survive a treacherous journey through a quarantine zone full of killer zombies. It’s based on the popular videogame series, and boasts an sprawling cast that includes Gabriel Luna, Anna Torv, Melania Lynskey and Nick Offerman.
There’s also “Velma” (Jan. 12), an adult animated comedy/mystery series telling the origin story of the brains behind the Scooby-Doo gang; the rock-climbing competition series “The Climb” (Jan. 12), hosted by Jason Momoa; Season 2 of the news-interview show “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace” (Jan. 6); and the return of the investigative show “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” (date TBA).

HBO Max and TNT are becoming the new home to live coverage of the U.S. men’s and women’s soccer teams in 2023. The U.S. women will tune up for next summer’s World Cup with a pair of matches against New Zealand (Jan. 17 and 20), while the U.S. men, coming off a mostly satisfying World Cup run of their own, play Serbia (Jan. 25).
HBO is also adding a solid slate of movies, including the “John Wick” trilogy, “Lawrence of Arabia,” “The Crying Game” and “When We Were Kings” (all Jan. 1).
Here’s the full list of what’s coming and going in January, as of Dec. 20 (release dates are subject to change):
