On May 22, HBO Max is done. On May 23, the streaming service will be relaunched as just “Max,” along with some new programming (and, no doubt, an updated look and interface). So what’s coming to the service in May represents the final official batch of HBO Max original content. That includes White House Plumbers, a new limited series about the Watergate break-in and scandal that stars Woody Harrelson as E. Howard Hunt and Justin Theroux as G. Gordon Libby.

Other new additions include a documentary about the great Donna Summer and more episodes of Rick and Morty. And if you’re wondering what you have to do to maintain your subscription as HBO Max becomes Max, the company says “large portion of subscribers will have their apps automatically updated, while others will be prompted to download the updated Max app.” More details on all of that should be coming in the days ahead.

In the meantime, here’s everything coming in the final weeks of HBO Max:
