With a new month rolling in, many streaming services, including Netflix, have taken to switching up their options for viewers, saying goodbye to a few shows and movies, but also introducing a couple of new ones for their subscribers to enjoy. As of August, HBO will say goodbye with the season finales of both their shows Euphoria and Divorce. And whilst you’ll have to wait until the next season of these two fan-favorite shows, some new favs are making their comeback in the meantime, like old favorite, Succession. HBO will also introduce a slew of new original series, including The Righteous Gemstones and Our Boys. In terms of movies, the streaming service will add a few more names to their 2019 Oscars collection with Best Picture nominee The Favourite and the amazing performance from Best Actress nominee, Melissa McCarthy, in Can You Ever Forgive Me? Other popular movies from the year prior, like Aquaman, willalso be available for streaming as of next month.
Perhaps the most uhh… interesting viewing experience to arrive, will be Julio Torres’ upcoming comedy special My Favorite Shapes by Julio Torres. Torres is a notable master of shenanigans (and apparently, geometry enthusiast) who will make his HBO debut with the help of executive production by Fred Armisen and Lorne Michaels, in an hour-long ode to shapes, described in excruciatingly hilarious detail by Torres. Check out the trailer below, and the complete list of arrivals and departures underneath it.
