the knick streaming

The Knick, Steven Soderbergh‘s amazing series about the life and times of people working in and around a fictional 1900s New York hospital, is finally headed to HBO Max. The series ran for two seasons on Cinemax, but even though Cinemax and HBO Max are owned by the same company, The Knick hasn’t been available to stream on the new-ish streaming service. That’s going to change this weekend, with The Knick streaming on HBO Max starting February 20. In addition to that, another Cinemax show, Banshee, is also headed to HBO Max next week.
