HBO Max upcoming shows 2023

The battle between streaming services does not seem to be ending anytime soon. HBO Max might seem like a new entrant when compared to seasoned giants like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. But it holds more television heritage than possibly any other studio or service. And HBO Max’s upcoming shows in 2023 are full of promise.

It’s hard to rival a platform that’s home to the most iconic shows like The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, and The Wire. Their slate of upcoming shows in 2023 is well-positioned to live up to the HBO gold standard and heritage.

  • The Last of Us on HBO Max is the highly anticipated series adaptation of the critically acclaimed video game of the same name. 
  • Premiering in January, the post-apocalyptic show stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as the lead characters, Joel and Ellie as they embark on an emotional survival adventure.
