HBO Max is giving us a look at their upcoming slate of shows, and it is queer as hell in here!
As we all worry about which shows are being canceled or removed from streaming, HBO Max wants to remind us of some of the content they still have. Because of that, the streamer has released a new trailer showing upcoming and new content on the platform.
While the trailer highlights two shows especially – House of the Dragon, which premiered this week, and The Last of Us, which will come out next year – it also shows plenty of other shows, including several with lots of queer content that we love.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the gay shows we love that will be coming to HBO Max with new seasons soon.
HBO’s new Game of Thrones prequel series stars nonbinary actor Emma D’arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, one of the people battling for control of the throne. The first episode has dropped, and fans have already noticed sapphic vibes between their character and her best friend Alicent Hightower, daughter of the Hand of the King.
The second season of The White Lotus is coming, this time to the coast of Italy. The new season will take place at a different location for a White Lotus resort, and will feature returning character Tanya McQuoid (Jennifer Coolidge), as well as new actors like Haley Lu Richardson, Aubrey Plaza, and Theo James.
This new series co-created by The Weeknd and Sam Levinson, along with Reza Fahim, is about a self-help guru and cult-leader who enters a complicated relationship with a rising pop star. It stars Lily-Rose Depp and The Weeknd, but also features Troye Sivan, Dan Levy, Hari Nef, and Anne Heche, in her last role before her death.
The much-hyped TV adaptation of the beloved video game is almost here! The Last of Us follows a man named Joel (Pedro Pascal) as he helps guide a teen girl named Ellie (Bella Ramsey) navigate a post-apocalyptic world. In the games, Ellie is gay, and there’s another gay character named Bill (Nick Offerman).
The long-awaited second season of this terrifically weird comedy is coming soon to HBO Max! Created by and starring queer comedians Julio Torres and Ana Fabrega, Los Espookys follows a group of mostly queer friends who have a “horror group” where they use special effects and makeup to conjure up spooks and chills for various clients.
