There are many streaming platforms available these days, but one of our personal favorites is still HBO Max. The service is home to some of the biggest movie features, and it has plenty of fun and action coming in January 2022.

Harry Potter fans, a dream is coming true in a few short days as the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts premieres on Jan. 1, 2022. We’re super excited about how it’s the first special out the gate! Return to Hogwarts will feature Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and other cast members and crew. We can’t wait to experience the nostalgia.

Those who love the superhero genre and are ready for action will love Peacemaker, which drops on HBO Max on Jan. 13. The series explores the origins of Peacemaker, portrayed by John Cena, a character fans met in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. 

Other noteworthy shows include Euphoria, the long awaited second season will arrive on Jan. 9. This month will also be giving us the new drama series The Gilded Age on Jan. 24, and the final season of Search Party on Jan. 7. Finally, at the top of my list is the SXSW multiple-award-winning feature The Fallout, starring Jenna Ortega, Maddie Ziegler, and Niles Fitch.

Need more? HBO Max has plenty! Read on.
