What’s new on HBO and HBO Max December 2021

New shows and movies are coming to HBO and HBO Max in December, including the new chapter of Sex and the City and Matrix Resurrections.

‘Tis the season to be jolly and indulge in all the Christmas movie watching you can handle. Of course, if the feel-good and warm fuzzy movies aren’t exactly your type, there are plenty of other gifts waiting for us.

So if you’re not exactly ready for sitting around the Christmas tree in a room littered with holiday decor and drinking hot cocoa out of your favorite Elf mug, we get it — but you’ll totally find us that way until January.

HBO and HBO Max has plenty in the shows and films on the December lineup. From action thrillers to holiday comedies and everything in between, you won’t have a problem finding a classic or a new favorite.

Fans are thrilled with big-name releases like And Just Like That — a new chapter for Sex and the City and Matrix Resurrections. The season 1 finale of Gossip Girl will also hit HBO Max in December and the sweet new animated comedy Ron’s Gone Wrong
