HBO Today announced that the new season of In Treatment starring Uzo Aduba will premiere in May. HBO Max recently announced And Just Like That, a revival of HBO’s signature comedy series Sex and the City (without original star Kim Cattrall). HBO also is developing a True Blood reboot with Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and NOS4A2 creator Jami O’Brien. (That project is in very early stages, and there are no current plans for original cast members to return.)
In a Q&A during HBO/HBO Max portion of TCA, HBO and HBO Max Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys spoke about bringing back popular HBO titles.
“The reboots is what gets written about a lot but when you look at our TCA lineup, you had In Treatment but you also has Generation,” he said, referring to the shows HBO and HBO Max did virtual panels for, including HBO’s In Treatment reboot and HBO Max’s new original series Generation. “It is something I’m mindful of, rebooting material is something we are experiencing across the industry. There is power in that, you are dealing with nostalgia and people’s emotional connection with a show but like with anything, I don’t want to do too many. I think there are original stories to tell, and we don’t want to lose that, so it’s always a balancing act.”
