Here’s How (and When) to Watch Every Episode of Station Eleven, HBO Max’s Best New Series

Fashion

To fill the Succession-sized appointment-viewing hole in your heart, might we suggest the pandemic show? We know what you’re thinking—the last thing I need is another reminder of the deadly virus still sweeping the world—but HBO’s new must-watch, Station Eleven, isn’t the kind of doom-and-gloom post-apocalyptic vision you might be expecting.

The series, based on Emily St. John Mandel’s beloved novel of the same name, features a lush post-pandemic world full of art and opportunity. As the Traveling Symphony curves its way around the Great Lakes region every year, they perform Shakespearean theater for the smattering of homesteads that have popped up in the pandemic’s wake. There is a threat here, yes—a mysterious prophet and his apocalypse-induced traumas spell trouble for our protagonists—but there is also an extraordinary lightness, one those of us watching at home might need after a year like 2021. The result is a spellbinding masterwork from the Maniac writer Patrick Somerville.

But, unlike Succession before it, Station Eleven will adhere to a slightly less conventional rollout. Here’s when to tune in to each of the 10 episodes.
