There are always quite a few perks to a holiday weekend, the biggest of which being an extra day off work and school. With Labor Day coming on Monday, HBO wants to make sure everyone can enjoy the long weekend to its fullest extent, so the premium network is releasing its entire Sunday night TV lineup early.
HBO has long been known for its Sunday night programming, rotating its high-tier original shows throughout the year so that one night of your week can be dedicated to a single network. The current Sunday night slate consists of business drama Succession, the final season of The Rock's sports dramedy, Ballers, and the first installment of The Righteous Gemstones, the newest comedy series from Danny McBride. On Friday morning, HBO added the next episode of each series on-demand and on the HBO apps to ensure fans can watch them this weekend if they've got other plans for Sunday evening.
This week marks the fourth episode of Succession Season 2, the third episode of The Righteous Gemstones Season 1, and the second episode of Ballers Season 5. You can check out the titles and descriptions from each of the newly-added episodes below.
