Summer is heating up with hit shows on HBO Latino, starting with the highly anticipated return of Sr. Ávila. The fourth and final season of the International Emmy® award winning program takes viewers into a world on the edge of life and death — a place where Ávila is confronted by his history and victims, giving way to an action-packed season.

In the fourth installment of Entre Nos, Christine Medrano, Jerry Garcia, and Francisco Ramos answer some of life’s most perplexing questions such as: How can you make Alexa understand your accent? Are tattoos addictive? And, why is real life nothing like it is in Lifetime movies? Catch-up on Entre Nos: Part 1 (HBO Latino’s Spanish-language comedy special) and Entre Nos: Part 2 and Part 3 on all HBO® digital platforms.

Don’t miss the series finale of El Negocio, the successful HBO original series from Brazil, and see how Karin, Luna, Magali, and Mia’s stories all unfold when it pre-premieres on HBO NOW®, HBO GO®, and free On Demand Channels on Sunday, June 3rd and on linear on Monday, June 4th.

HBO’s new drama Succession also premieres this June, which explores themes of power, politics, money, and family, played out within a rich and dysfunctional family whose patriarch is the CEO of one of the world’s largest media and entertainment conglomerates.

Kick-off July with Sharp Objects, an eight-episode limited drama series that stars five-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams as reporter Camille Preaker, who returns to her small hometown to cover the murder of a preteen girl and the disappearance of another. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, she finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely.

Estreno highlights include Mi Mundial, based off the book of the same title by Daniel Baldi, which follows the story of a young soccer prodigy, who gets a chance to follow his dreams, and El fútbol o Yo starring Adrián Suar as a sports fan who is on the brink of losing everything to his soccer addiction. The fantasy hit Blade Runner 2049 and American Made, a biographical crime film, starring Tom Cruise make their way to HBO Latino this summer, along with It, the Stephen King horror remake, and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
