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

HBO Max will roll out the second season of “Hacks” in May, along with a George Carlin documentary, an adaptation of “The Time Traveler’s Wife” and a slew of movies.

After a debut season that won multiple Emmys, the comedy “Hacks” (May 12) returns for its second season, with the give-and-take mentorship between legendary comedian Deborah Vance (Jean Smart) and writer Ava Daniels (Hannah Einbinder) facing new challenges as the duo take a cross-country tour to workshop their new standup material.

May 15 brings Stephen Moffatt’s adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger’s popular 2003 novel “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” starring Rose Leslie and Theo James as star-crossed lovers plagued by a time-travel disorder that keeps somehow reuniting them at various points in their lives. There’s also “The Staircase” (May 5), a true-crime limited series starring Colin Firth and Toni Collette.
