The Vow continues but how many episodes are there? Let’s explore the release schedule of the entire HBO documentary series.
This year has been a catastrophe in many respects but TV enthusiasts have fortunately had one reason to remain optimistic.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic affecting and disrupting a wealth of productions, audiences have still been treated to lots of quality content so far this year.
Arguably, all tastes have been catered for, especially those partial to a good documentary.
The year’s biggest hit – and an unexpected one at that – was perhaps Netflix’s Tiger King, focusing its lens on the mythological Joe Exotic.
A thirst for knowledge has persisted in recent months too and one title which has been keen to cater is The Vow.
This HBO series explores the cult NXIVM, along with its leader Keith Raniere.

Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim on The Vow
In conversation with Variety, one of the series’ directors – Karim Amer – spoke out regarding why NXIVM shouldn’t simply be called a “sex cult”, calling this dismissiveness “deeply problematic”.
He expressed: “People put a lot of faith in the documentary. I’m not saying we’re here to right all wrongs, but we’re trying to help bring in more nuance.”
Its other director – Jehane Noujaim – also offered some insight:
“We were following the story long before there was any news element. It started as a very personal story. Mark was somebody I had known for 10 years at that time and had always believed very much in the organization and the ethical mission of the organization was all of a sudden talking in a very different way, questioning everything that he believed, and it was very much a crisis of faith.”
