Max, the streaming service formerly known as HBO Max, is adding 142 new titles in September. Here are the three most interesting, in my humble opinion:
The AMC+ Shows
Max has partnered with AMC+ to provide seven AMC shows to the Max audience for two months. The list, which includes season one through seven of Fear the Walking Dead, season one of Dark Winds and all four seasons of Killing Eve, among others, is frankly more interesting than any of the new titles coming to HBO/Max in September. Considering that HBO and Max are supposed to be known for providing thought-provoking programming, that’s not a good thing. But at least Max subs have the AMC shows now. For two months, anyway.
Again, one of the more interesting things happening on Max this month is not a scripted program. It’s CNN, the news, folks. Yes, Warner Bros. Discovery on September 27 will add live newscasts and on-demand CNN programs to the Max offering. Live sports, possibly the MLB playoffs, is likely to come thereafter.

The Exorcist (1973)
The 50-year-old movie makes the list because it’s not available very often on streaming or premium cable channels. The horror film stars Linda Blair as a movie star’s daughter whose body is taken over by the Devil himself. (Or herself. Veteran actress Mercedes McCambridge did the voice of Satan). Directed by the recently departed William Friedkin, The Exorcist scared the bejesus out of moviegoers in the 70s and it still holds up today as a great film.

All in all, it’s a weak month for Max, but hopefully the rest of the fall will get more interesting. Here is the complete list of new titles coming to Max this month:
