13 Best Science Fiction Shows on HBO Max's

HBO Max is slowly but steadily filling its streaming library with interesting science fiction television episodes. Smaller, odder entrants that offer something different are sandwiched between prestige dramas with great production values and extensive episode times. The shelf is quite large.


The best sci-fi TV series on HBO Max are listed here.




Raised by Wolves (2020—)

Raised by Wolves will please those who wish to spend a long period (almost 10 hours) immersed in a world created by Ridley Scott. After Earth is destroyed by a religious institution, two androids, Mother and Father, strive to establish an atheist human colony on a new planet. 


They quickly learn, however, that manipulating human beliefs is a difficult undertaking. Scott sets up a fascinating inquiry into AI and religious ideas by directing the first two episodes and pulling the reins as an executive producer. In Amanda Collin's Mother, there's blood, tremendous performances, and a strong protagonist.



Station Eleven (2021)

Don't believe all you've heard about Station Eleven. The meditative dystopian thriller (the latter adjective can only be used to select episodes) is prestige television that whisks you away on a voyage to surprising, moving, and distinctive locales, and it's one of the greatest shows of 2021. 


The film follows two histories, with the main focus on clever protagonist Kirsten (Mackenzie Davis), who survived a world-destroying epidemic and now travels across the ruins with the Traveling Symphony theatrical troupe. Station Eleven is a hopeful take on the end of the world, created by Patrick Somerville, whose writing work on The Leftovers can be sensed here.



Made for Love (2021—)

Made for Love (2021—)



What if your husband implanted a chip in your brain to monitor your every move? Hazel Green (Cristin Milotti) is confronted with this problem and immediately flees, with the unhelpful support of her father (Ray Romano). Navigate the perilous waters of this satirical romantic story with a Black Mirror twist and a helpful dolphin. Yes, Made for Love is both surprising and distressing in equal measure.



Peacemaker (2021—)

Peacemaker (2021—)



While Peacemaker is mostly a superhero show, it does involve extraterrestrial visitation, earning it a slot on this list. The Suicide Squad spinoff series follows the titular Peacemaker, a wild John Cena who investigates the origins of his catchphrase — "Peace is something I deeply value. 

I don't care how many men, women, or children I have to slaughter in order to have it "— was derived. The James Gunn-written series is a rollicking time with surprising heart, spooky, gruesome, and bouncing to a rocking soundtrack.



Snowpiercer (2020—)

Of course, you should see Snowpiercer, a 2013 sci-fi action film directed by Bong Joon-ho, but the TV version has a few nice touches. Melanie Cavill, played by Jennifer Carpenter, is the head of hospitality aboard the continually rolling luxury train that keeps its passengers safe from the world's freezing wasteland. 

Nonetheless, this small segment of mankind is not immune to class struggles, with the lower carriages edging closer to revolution. This is a fantastic story that works well on both large and small screens.



Doctor Who (2005—)

New fans for this long-running British show may be difficult to come by at this point. Try the later Jodie Whittaker episodes if you're interested in dipping into the wonderfully imaginative, genre-bending, barnstorming adventure. Whittaker takes on the role of the Doctor, a time-traveling, space-faring alien adventurer with a kind heart and an out-of-this-world sense of humor. Serious amusement.



Fringe (2008-2013)

There are five seasons of this science-fiction procedural to look forward to. Investigate inexplicable phenomena with the Fringe Division, a team of agents entrusted with probing parallel universes and different timelines. Fringe found its own after a mediocre first season, bringing original ideas and a powerful emotional core along for the voyage.



Westworld (2016—)

Westworld (2016—)



Alice in Wonderland encounters a slew of robots. Season 3 of the genuinely mind-bending sci-fi Western may be traveling in convoluted circles, but the first exhilarating season slammed the barn door shut. 


The spotlight is drawn to Dolores, a host who begins to become sentient in a violent and filthy amusement park where rich guests can shoot, kill, and violate the android hosts in various ways. No, she is dissatisfied with the way she has been treated. Westworld is both addictive and thought-provoking, requiring you to piece together the riddle.



Person of Interest (2011-2016)

Person of Interest (2011-2016)



Jonathan Nolan's sci-fi crime drama has earned a spot on the list of the top sci-fi TV shows of all time. The series revolves around a government-developed piece of Precog-like equipment that is used to forecast terrorist strikes. 


The machine, on the other hand, can warn of minor but still lethal crimes, and a splinter squad of underground investigators is dispatched to assist linked persons of interest. Person of Interest is an intriguing, stunning, and full spy procedural that deals with difficult topics such as the concept of "the greater good."



Beforeigners (2019—)

Beforeigners (2019—)
HBO Max



HBO's first Norwegian series is a gripping sci-fi crime drama with the oddest detective partnership you've ever seen. Lars, a senior investigator, links up with Alfhildr, a Viking-era recruit, to investigate the death of a Stone Age woman. Oh, yes, the show is set in a modern-day Oslo where migrants, or "Beforeigners," from the Viking Age and beyond emerge. Beforeigners is a one-of-a-kind murder mystery with plenty of ripe fish-out-of-water comic fodder.



Babylon 5 (1993-1998)

Babylon 5, an influential legacy show, may have antiquated edges nowadays, but it would be sacrilege to leave it off this list. The primary premise is that a group of humans and alien species collaborate on the Babylon 5 space station as Earth establishes its place in the galaxy. The plot includes political intrigue, character studies, and the prospect of war.



Falling Skies (2011-2015)

Falling Skies (2011-2015)



This post-apocalyptic sci-fi, which features executive producer Steven Spielberg, blends family drama to alien invasions. Falling Skies follows a group of survivors who plan to fight back following an extraterrestrial invasion. Multiple alien races, space travel, and a satisfying climax standoff are introduced over the course of five seasons.



Years and Years (2019)

Years and Years (2019)



Years and Years is a must-see for everyone who was blown away by Russell T Davies' It's a Sin. The ambitious sci-fi series jumps ahead 15 years in time, capturing the ups and downs of the eccentric Lyons family in each episode. 


The Lyons go through it all, from technology advancements to life-changing events, all while maintaining a charming sense of humor.
