What’s New on HBO Now in October? Deadpool, Westworld, and More

Nancy Messieh 29-09-2016

Like Netflix and Prime Video, HBO NOW will be debuting quite a few new fall shows in October along with a small list of movies, including 2016’s Ride Along 2. All of these will be gracing your TV or computer screens soon.


Sarah Jessica Parker returns to HBO with the new comedy Divorce, joined by Thomas Haden Church, in what has been described as the “spiritual sequel” to her previous HBO series, Sex and the City.

HBO series Insecure, another comedy also debuting on October 9, is partially based on the web series, Awkward Black Girl, and stars Issa Rae. HBO members can actually already watch the premiere on HBO Now or HBO Go.

HBO is also premiering Tracey Ullman’s Show, and miniseries Magnifica ’70 is back for a second season. Movies coming to HBO in October include 80s classics Cocktail and Jewel of the Nile, and a couple of horrors just in time for Halloween with An American Haunting and two Poltergeist movies making it into the lineup.

The movies Lucy, Juno, and The Theory of Everything are among the films that will no longer be available to watch by the end of the month, so catch them while you can.
