What Time Will The Righteous Gemstones Season 2 Be on HBO?
The first episode of this new season will premiere on HBO at 10/9c. This first week will be a little weird because of the two-part premiere. New adventures from the Gemstone family will be on HBO from 10 to 11:25 p.m. ET. After this week, new episodes will premiere on HBO Sundays at 10/9c.
That takes care of HBO. But what if you’re an HBO Max loyalist? New episodes of The Righteous Gemstones will be available on HBO Max the same time they premiere on HBO proper. If you don’t see these new episodes appear right away, simply refresh your HBO app or desktop version. Sometimes it just takes a second for them to appear.
How to Watch The Righteous Gemstones on HBO and HBO Max
You’re not going to want to miss this dissection of religious hypocrisy and the worst family around. That’s why you need HBO. If you’re subscribed to HBO through your cable package, you’re golden. Simply make sure your TV is set to HBO on Sunday before 10/9c p.m. You can also use that same cable username and password on HBO Max to watch the first two episodes of Season 2 from anywhere.
You also have a more direct subscription option. If you subscribed to HBO digitally, enter your username and password into HBO NOW or HBO Max and stream away. If you want our advice, use HBO Max. In addition to HBO’s list of originals, you also get the newer streamer’s long list of library content.
What if you don’t have any version of HBO but you don’t want to miss Danny McBride’s latest and greatest? You can always sign up for the streaming service. There are currently two pricing options for HBO Max. A plan with ads for $9.99 a month, and an ad-free plan for $14.99 a month. Unfortunately, neither of these plans come with a free trial. Church may be free, but HBO isn’t.
Is There a Trailer for The Righteous Gemstones Season 2?
You know there is, and it’s as wild as you expect. We’re talking screaming about your sister-in-law’s “played out pastrami”, Eric Andre in a cowboy hat, nosey reporters, burning houses, wrestling matches, failed stunts, and Judy’s (Edi Patterson) awkward church dancing. Scroll up to the top of this article to revel in the chaos and get hyped.
