What’s new on HBO (October 2018)

Rick Marshall
Whether you're a cable lifer or a staunch cord cutter, there's never been a better time to get down with premium TV. Follow us to find out what's new on HBO each month. October 2018 brings My Dinner With Hervé and Camping.

Fall is officially here, and HBO has lots of reasons for you to get cozy inside as the weather turns colder, including new episodes of popular shows and a multitude of hit movies.

This month features the premiere of HBO Films’ My Dinner with Hervé, which explores the real-world friendship that developed between a journalist (Jamie Dornan) and actor Hervé Villechaize (Peter Dinklage), famous for his roles in Fantasy Island and The Man with the Golden Gun, a short time before Villechaize’s suicide.

Also premiering in October is the new HBO series Camping, starring Jennifer Garner and David Tennant, about a group of old friends whose decision to go on a camping trip together brings up old rivalries, fresh tensions, and memories they prefer to leave forgotten.

Flight of the Conchords duo Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie also return to HBO for a new special, Flight of the Conchords: Live in London, bringing the pair back to the network for the first time since their quirky comedy series ended in 2009.

Several critically acclaimed films also make their HBO debut this month, including Oscar-nominated feature The Post, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep. The Halloween season also brings a horde of noteworthy scary movies to the network, including the terrifying cave-horror feature The Descent and ’80s classic The Lost Boys.

Of course, all of these additions to the HBO library mean the end to some films’ availability. Some of those aforementioned scary films will vanish at the end of the month, so make sure to schedule PredatorThe Omen, and The Silence of the Lambs early in your Halloween movie marathon.

Read on for our list of new titles coming to HBO. (Bolded titles signify films and shows we recommend.) Interested in what’s on other streaming services? Be sure to check out what’s new on Amazon Prime and what’s new on Netflix guides.
