A few days ago we learned that HBO Max had removed 6 original movies from the platform by surprise. It soon became clear that it was a move that was part of his new strategy, which had also led to the surprising cancellation of ‘Batgirl’. However, it does not end there, because 4 other series of his have disappeared, thus raising the total to 7as another 3 evaporated without a trace this past July.
the new casualties
The new “victims” of the restructuring of HBO Max are ‘Vinyl’, ‘Run’, ‘Mrs. Fletcher’ and ‘Camping’. And the truth is that it is difficult to understand the criteria (if there is one), since one was released in 2016, another in 2020, the next in 2019 and the last in 2018. Obviously it will not have been random, but the feeling that remains is that.
These four disappearances are added to the three Spanish series that disappeared a few weeks ago. I’m referring to ‘Nothing New’, ‘Foodie Love’ and ‘By H or B’. It draws attention to the whole case of the last one, since HBO Max renewed it for a second season several months ago, which suggests that the new episodes could end up forgotten in a drawer.
The worst of all is that We have no sign that this is going to end here and it may be that any day we enter the platform and some other HBO original series or movie has disappeared. Nothing good can come out of this uncertainty, so let’s hope they make things clear soon.
