HBO has shifted the premiere date of the Mark Ruffalo-led limited series “I Know This Much Is True.”
The six-episode series will now debut May 10. It was originally set to begin airing on April 27. The show moves into the date previously reserved for the limited series “The Undoing” starring Nicole Kidman. HBO announced last week that show would be moved to the fall due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
This is the latest television scheduling shift in recent weeks as networks and streaming services grapple with the fallout from the pandemic. In addition to “The Undoing,” FX’s fourth season of “Fargo” and “Genius: Aretha” at Nat Geo have also been pushed back. HBO confirmed within the last week that two of its critically-acclaimed returning series — “Barry” and “Succession” — have suspended production as a precautionary measure.
