The Best TV Shows And Movies Coming To HBO Max In June 2022

The rumors are true, folks: it's summertime! Well, maybe not technically (the much-awaited solstice is still about a month away), but it was hot enough here in NYC for this writer to have made it to Rockaway Beach over the weekend—and that's all that matters in my own personal view of the season. And what's better than heading home from the beach and sitting on the couch for a few refreshing hours of TV time? Luckily, HBO Max keeps their content fresh and exciting all year round, with the month of June boasting returning fan favorites alongside some enticing new options.

Before you're inundated with a glut of titles, let's take a little time to delve into some particularly noteworthy movies that'll hit the streamer shortly. Kicking things off will be "Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore" on May 30, sneaking in right before the official June wave. Though the next two notable films to hit the streamer are a bit dourer in theme, they're nonetheless fascinating portraits of passion and trauma. The documentary "Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain" hits HBO Max on June 9, followed by auteur Paul Schrader's latest success "The Card Counter" on June 10. If you've yet to see the latter, take this as an official recommendation.

HBO Max also has some interesting original content slated for the month to come, the first of which seems both pleasantly nostalgic and nonsensical. A CGI-animated rock opera based on the New York Times bestseller, "Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Underground Rock Experience" evokes strokes of "Kim Possible" while still keeping a wholly original premise. Predictably, it follows a naked mole-rat who decides to don clothes — making him an anomaly amongst his nude brethren. Get ready to groove with Wilbur the naked mole-rat on June 30.

Another new venture for the streamer is the forthcoming comedy series "Gordita Chronicles," which follows a 12-year-old Dominican girl throughout her daily life in debaucherous '80s Miami. With Eva Longoria set to direct the pilot, there's a lot of promise for the series, but a release date hasn't officially been announced. Similarly stoking Latino interests is the arrival of the four-part documentary series "Menudo: Young Forever," which will tell the unfortunate story behind what is arguably the best Latin American boy band. The series will premiere on June 23.

A few other juicy arrivals await us this June, so let's waste no time getting to it.

Westworld season 4

Though the show's quality has somewhat declined in recent seasons, there's still plenty to be excited about concerning the fourth season of HBO Max's "Westworld." Taking place in a dystopian theme park that allows wealthy visitors to torment AI-programmed automatons, it often takes dark turns. It never seemed to shine after its stellar first season, and season 3 managed to correct itself where season 2 went wrong, but it was still nowhere near perfect. Either way, plenty of folks will be tuning in to watch the continued TV adaptation of the novel by Michael Crichton, which premieres on June 26. Here's our review of season 3 if you need a refresher.

Irma Vep

Something truly exciting promises to be in store with Olivier Assayas' episodic remake of his 1996 film of the same name, "Irma Vep." Following a disillusioned American actress (played by Alicia Vikander) who travels to France to star as Irma Vep in an adaptation of the silent film "Les Vampires," it essentially follows the same story as Assayas' original film aside from one key difference. Much like in the remake that's being presented to viewers on HBO Max, the actress is now starring in a TV adaptation of "Les Vampires." If it's to be anything like Assayas' original, a clever satire awaits us, hitting the small screen on June 6.

The Janes

Tragically prescient, everyone owes it to themselves to watch "The Janes" when it hits HBO Max on June 8. The documentary tells the story of the women who dared to take control of their own bodies before Roe v. Wade was ratified into law, creating a network of underground aids who would help women in need of an abortion. With many interviewees speaking on the record for the first time, this documentary will surely add to the contentious conversation that currently surrounds the issue of reproductive rights in the U.S.

Father of the Bride

Another adaptation of an adaptation hits HBO on June 16 with "Father of the Bride." Though perhaps best known to viewers as the 1991 adaptation starring Steve Martin as the titular character, it was actually based on a 1950 film directed by Vincente Minnelli and starring none other than Elizabeth Taylor. In 2022, we're treated to a Cuban-American update, with Andy Garcia now taking on the titular character. Joining him in the ranks are mother of the bride Gloria Estefan, blushing bride Adria Arjona, and groom-to-be Diego Boneta.

Finally, below is the list of absolutely everything that'll be arriving to HBO Max in June—three cheers for the rom-com classic "13 Going on 30" returning to the streamer, just in time for summer sleepover season.
