With some of the best new HBO shows that came out in 2021, there’s a reason to look forward to the new year. Although a few of the upcoming HBO TV shows and HBO Max series that were due to be released in 2020 and were held back, just as many were scheduled for the once-far-off date of 2021. The wait is over for shows like The Gilded Age and the reboot of The Boondocks. From Green Lantern to the much-anticipated Zack Snyder's Justice League miniseries, HBO has continued their output of original series based on DC Comics properties.

Between the two of them, HBO and HBO Max's 2021 is packed with dramas, sci-fi, and documentaries that were all great bait for awards (and great adds to your watchlist); and they must know what they're doing as HBO has consistently proved themselves at award shows like the Golden Globes and Emmys. But that doesn't mean they don't also make fun and indulgent shows – something to be grateful for in 2021 - like Justice League Dark, Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, and the new Gossip Girl, which picked up the story and was updated for 2021.

From British comedies to western dramas, there is an HBO original release for everyone in 2021. Vote up the shows you'll be watching as soon as they came out.
