HBO Announces Premiere Dates for The Leftovers, The Knick, and More


Just mark today "HBO Day" on your calendars, because the premium network took over the Television Critics Association press tour with a slew of information and announcements. 

The Leftovers, Damon Lindelof's examination of loss in a world where two percent of the world's population mysteriously disappeared, will return for Season 2 on Sunday, October 4. The second season follows the Garveys as they move to a small Texas town that experienced no departures. But will teens hold parties where they ask to be choked while masturbating? The world needs to know.

The Knick, Steven Soderbergh's period medical drama that airs on HBO sister network Cinemax, will return for its second season on October 16. HBO also announced that Season 1 of The Knick will air on HBO's online platforms for a 10-week period starting August 14 so laggers can catch up. Additionally, HBO2 will air the first season as a marathon on October 10. In Season 2, disgustingly progressive-for-the-time medical advancements will make their way to San Francisco.

HBO also revealed that Season 2 of Doll & Em will debut on September 13, Amy Schumer's stand-up special Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo is scheduled to air on October 17, and Jonah Nolan's Westworld adaptation and Martin Scorsese's 1970s rock drama Vinyl will both air in the first half of 2016. As previously announced, Will Ferrell's Ferrell Takes the Field, in which the comedian suited up for 10 Major League Baseball teams in one day during spring training for charity, will air on September 12. 

Which of these news announcements excites you most?

Looking forward to more of both The Knick and The Leftovers.
Excited for Vinyl, Scorsese is a god amongst men, so this should be good.
And Westworld created by the man behind, Memento, The Prestige, Interstellar, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Person of Interest. Everything Nolan touches turns to gold, so sign me up for this one.

I believe that for some reason The Knick would get much recognition if it aired on HBO rather than Cinemax

I'm psyched for The Knick, Leftovers & Vinyl. Westworld will be a touch & go thing for an episode or few, but the rest I just can't be bothered to tune into.

Maybe the cable channels realized how much better their late summer shows were than fall broadcast shows in 2014. Several 2015 returns seem to be delayed until September or later.

P.S. Yay, The Knick!
