Now that Game of Thrones is over, you’re probably at a loss what to watch. Some of you may be thinking it’s time to cancel your HBO subscription. But we’re here to save the day. Though it might not seem like it after the epicness of Game of Thrones, there is no better time than right now when the best new HBO series are coming out. And yes, these series are just as addictive as Jon Snow’s hair.
First up is the wildly popular television show Big Little Lies. The season two premieres is just days away. Co-stars include the one and only Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley. Quite a big-name cast! But besides Big Little Lies, there is lesser known television series out there. Euphoria is basically the new Gossip Girl. Years & Years is a political thriller that is reminiscent of The Handmaid’s Tale.
The industry says we are in the golden age of television, and if you didn’t believe it before, after you watch these series you will understand why. Check out all the best new HBO series that you are going to want to add to your queue.
