Coming and Going on HBO Now in January 2019

In January, HBO brings back the original series True Detective with a new mystery set in the Ozarks starring Mahershala Ali and presents the lighthearted heist hit Ocean’s 8 with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, and Anne Hathaway.

HBO also debuts the original drama Brexit starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Rory Kinnear and new seasons of Crashing, High Maintenance, and Real Time with Bill Maher in January, plus the films Tully with Charlize Theron and Tag with Ed Helms and Jon Hamm.

Older films returning to HBO include Logan with High Jackman as Wolverine, The Losers with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, and Chris Pine, Francis Ford Coppola’s The Outsiders, and the original 1959 The Diary of Anne Frank.

Among the films leaving at the end of January are the hit horror film IT, the animated adventure The Lego Batman Movie, The Mountain Between Us with Kate Winslet and Idris Elba, and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
