New Details About HBO Max's Green Lantern TV Series Revealed
The new series will focus on classic and contemporary ringslingers Alan Scott, Jessica Cruz, and even Guy Gardner in its first season.
Green Lantern at HBO Max has been given the green light straight to series. The ten-episode series is the latest DC addition to HBO Max's lineup following the order of a Peacemaker prequel series for next year.
Announced late last year, we now have plot details for the first time. ComicBook is reporting that the show will showcase the adventures of a series of well-known Lanterns, including Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, and Alan Scott. The series will also feature classic characters such as Kilowog and Sinestro and will introduce new heroes to the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps along the way (here's hoping for a G'nort cameo).
HBO Max has ordered 10 one-hour episodes that will be co-written and executive produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim. Grahame-Smith is serving as showrunner. Both have previously worked on DC productions, with Grahame-Smith on The Lego Batman Movie and Guggenheim with the CW DC Universe. He also co-wrote the 2011 Green Lantern movie with Ryan Reynolds.
It's interesting to note that any mention of Hal Jordan, John Stewart, and Kyle Rayner is missing from the show's details, but of course, that doesn't mean these characters won't appear in the initial season. Simon Baz and Jessica Crews are two of the latest additions to the Green Lantern Corps having made their first appearances only in the last decade.
The Green Lantern show does not have an official premiere date or casting just yet.
