What’s Worth Streaming: Here’s everything new coming to HBO Max in April 2022 — and what’s leaving

HBO Max has a loaded lineup of returning favorites, intriguing new series and classic movies coming in April.

Max’s first legitimate hit series, the Emmy-winning comedy/thriller “The Flight Attendant” (April 21), is back for its second season. Kaley Cuoco stars as a — you guessed it — flight attendant who’s now trying to stay sober while moonlighting with the CIA and getting caught up in international intrigue. Staying in the comedy/thriller genre, “Barry” (April 24) returns for its third season, with Bill Hader starring as a hitman who’s trying to escape his violent past while following his dreams of becoming an actor.

Meanwhile, David Simon has a new show with his frequent collaborator from “The Wire,” author George Pelecanos. Starring Jon Bernthal and Jamie Hector, “We Own This City” (April 25) recounts the real-life rise and fall of a corrupt Baltimore police unit. “Tokyo Vice” (April 7) is another crime series based on a true story, as Ansel Elgort stars an American crime reporter embedded in the Tokyo police’s vice squad who descends into the underworld of 1990s Tokyo. Ken Watanabe also stars, and the series is produced (and the pilot directed) by acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann.
