HBO Max is at a crucial turning point for its future. The brand has already undergone a name change in the United States—it’s now called simply Max—and is preparing for many new productions while bidding farewell to some of its beloved series. This has been the case with Barry and, of course, Succession, and now another one has been announced to reach its conclusion soon: How to with John Wilson.
While some may not be familiar with this series, it is one of the finest documentaries ever made, especially in the 21st century. The show has spent two seasons evoking laughter and stirring emotions with its portrayal of contemporary society, and in its third season, it aims to do it once again, as evidenced by its trailer.
An end to match
The third season of How to with John Wilson will be the last, marking the end of one of the most remarkable documentary series in recent memory. In the show, John Wilson takes his camera and simply strolls through New York, capturing the diverse “indigenous fauna” he encounters.
However, what starts as a collection of curiosities quickly gains momentum. John Wilson delves into the lives of the most intriguing and eccentric characters in the big city, delivering heartwarming stories that evoke both laughter and emotion in each episode. It is essentially a pinnacle of visual storytelling. Wilson himself explains his approach to this final season in the press statement:
“As we began working on Season 3, I got excited thinking of it as the last one. It opened up a lot of narrative possibilities that hadn’t been available to us before and gave us the freedom to attempt really ambitious things.”
“While a part of me would love to continue making “How To” indefinitely, I take pride in striving to keep the style and visuals feeling fresh, and I prefer to end the series while that remains the case. Thematically, we also feel that we have reached a point of departure towards the finale, and it seems like a natural place to exit.”
On July 28, we will be able to witness this great conclusion on HBO Max.
