The end of the year means highly anticipated conclusions for several new HBO series, plus a whole batch of new movies to help fill those extra hours cuddled up on the couch during holiday break. ’Tis the season for some HBO binging!

Season finales for December include the acclaimed new drama series Westworld, the Sarah Jessica Parker comedy Divorce and the sketch comedy show Tracey Ullman’s Show. New programming will include the stand-up special Pete Holmes: Faces and Sounds, a new Vice Special Report that examines the country’s bitter political divisions, and three new documentaries: The Trans List, an exploration of the experiences of Americans who identify as transgender from director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (The Out List, The Latino List); Risky Drinking, a case-study look at the risks of alcohol use and the ways in which the medical community views and treats “risky drinkers” from Oscar® and Emmy®-winning filmmaker Ellen Goosenberg Kent; and Every Brilliant Thing, a unique film from Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

New theatrical highlights include 2016 releases like Keanu, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, Midnight Special and Hail Caesar!, while new and classic films such as Dumb and Dumber, Ghost, Jupiter Ascending, Mistress America and Scarface will leave the service at the end of the month.
