Why Your Favorite Show Is Leaving HBO Max

13 December, 2022

If your favorite HBO show has been canceled, take comfort in knowing that at least you’re not alone. This week, the streamer announced a number of shows that have been canceled, un-renewed, or removed altogether by HBO Max. They include fan favorites like Westworld, which built up a loyal following over four seasons before being canceled in November and, this week, slated to be pulled from the platform completely. Others are newer programs that found an audience more recently—Love Life, HBO Max’s first original scripted series, was canceled after two seasons and pulled, and Minx was canceled after having initially been renewed for a second season.

This week’s cancellations follow the first wave of shows axed back in August as a casualty of Warner Bros.’ merger with Discovery. The pile-up of cancellations has saddened showrunners and disappointed their fans, who now have little to no information about whether their favorites might be available to stream elsewhere.
