HBO is gearing up for its Fall 2014 TV season with the return of many favorite shows, including one from 2005.
Boardwalk Empire just premiered its final season on Sunday and it will continue through the fall, concluding with its eighth and final episode on Sunday, Oct. 26 at 9 p.m.
The cable subscription channel is also continuing with its much buzzed about talk show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver in the Sundays at 11 p.m. timeslot.
Real Time with Bill Maher is slated to return after a month-long hiatus Friday night at 11 p.m. with special guests Jerry Seinfeld and Nancy Pelosi.
The miniseries Olive Kitteridge, starring Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins and Bill Murray, is slated to premiere its first segment on Sunday, Nov. 2 while the second half airs Monday, Nov. 3. Olive Kitteridge is a four-part miniseries from director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right) and tells the tale of the titular character over 25 years living in a small New England town, in which affairs and tragedy are commonplace.
Sunday, Nov. 9 will be a big night of premieres. The Aaron Sorkin cable news drama The Newsroom is returning for a six-episode third (and final) season on Nov. 9 at 9 p.m. The series, which has been plagued with mixed reviews from the beginning, actually won star Jeff Daniels an Emmy for the first season.
Next up is the return of The Comeback, a mockumentary show that aired only one season on HBO in 2005. The series is returning for eight new episodes with star Lisa Kudrow reprising her role as washed up actress Valerie Cherish trying to make her big comeback as she films a reality TV show about her life. It will return Nov. 9 at 10 p.m.
