HBO Max to Purge Nearly 40 Titles This Week — Including 20 (!) Max Originals

Your favorite HBO Max originals may not be available to stream much longer.

As Warner Bros. Discovery prepares to combine HBO Max and Discovery+ into a single, unified streaming service, HBO Max is doing away with more than three dozen titles — including 20 original series.

By removing series and movies from its library, HBO Max no longer has to pay licensing fees for them, which is a bottom line-boosting measure for the streamer even when said checks are being made out to sister company Warner Bros. Television.

“As we work toward bringing our content catalogs together under one platform, we will be making changes to the content offering available on both HBO Max and discovery+,” the streamer said in a statement Wednesday. “That will include the removal of some content from both platforms.”

Among the Max Originals set to leave HBO Max this week are the critically acclaimed, short-lived teen drama Genera+ion, adult animated comedy Close Enough and the children’s late-night program The Not-Too-Late Show With Elmo (along with an unspecified slate of Sesame Street specials).

The purge also includes unscripted series 12 Dates of Christmas, About Last Night, Ellen’s Next Great Designer, Generation Hustle, My Mom, Your Dad (hosted by Insecure‘s Yvonne Orji) and Ravi Patel’s Pursuit of Happiness.

Animated titles being pulled include Aquaman: King of Atlantis, Esme & Roy, The Fungies!, Infinity Train, Little Ellen, Odo, Summer Camp Island (read creator’s statement), Tig n’ Seek and Yabba Dabba Dinosaurs.
