HBO is delaying the release of I Know This Much Is True by two weeks amid the coronavirus pandemic. Here’s all we know about the new release date.and why it’s happening.
Those who were hoping to see Mark Ruffalo in a dual role on I Know This Much Is True are going to have to wait. HBO has made the decision to hold back the release by two weeks amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The decision comes just days after announcing The Undoing was being pushed to fall. The Nicole Kidman limited series was set to premiere on May 10, but now doesn’t have a set release date. It’s mean HBO has had to rethink the release of other shows, and I Know This Much Is True will replace The Undoing‘s slot.

Ruffalo’s limited series sees him playing two roles: twin brothers Dominick and Thomas Birdsey. We follow the two brothers in their separate lives that involve sacrifice and betrayal.
The series was originally set to premiere on Apr. 27 and air for six weeks. However, HBO is making a change to its schedule considering multiple shows have had to stop production due to the global pandemic. Just recently, Barry and Succession halted production meaning that shows would be needed for later in the year.
HBO is certainly trying to manage the lack of new content later this year by rejigging the schedule throughout the year. Other networks will start to look at doing the same, with some already taking longer breaks now to bring episodes back in the spring and even pushing into the summer.
