Westworld Is Leaving HBO Max

Just over a month after canceling its once-popular original show Westworld, HBO plans to remove the back catalog from its streaming service.

It's unclear when Westworld will be removed from Warner Bros. Discovery's flagship streaming service, but it likely won't be alone. HBO's Love Life and The Nevers will also have to find new homes.

Westworld and The Nevers were produced by Warner Bros. and HBO; the others were made outside the company and licensed for HBO and HBO Max.

When we checked Monday evening, all three shows were available. It reports that Gordita Chronicles creator Claudia Forestieri tweeted that this past weekend was the last one for her show 

The cut is reportedly taking place as part of a "financial review" at the company, and they are "likely to resurface on other company platforms."

HBO Max, which may soon be called "Max" after merging with Discovery Plus, has lost other content in recent months, but this would be a whammy.

Since David Zaslav took over the company that was made when WarnerMedia and Discovery merged earlier this year, it's been clear that HBO Max was in for some rough waters

Executives were already telling investors that they would be looking for "content efficiencies" before the deal was even completely done.

While Westworld's ratings did fall throughout its four-season run, it'll be difficult to believe that anything will remain on the streaming service if the show is indeed canceled.
