Fans are relieved today to learn that Our Flag Means Death will not be on the chopping block for HBO – at least for now. After the merger between parent company Warner Brothers and Discovery on 4/8, and reports of HBO Max halting production of (and even cancelling) its originals for many of their markets, many have been fearful for Our Flag Means Death, the platform’s most successful show that nevertheless they seem to be avoiding advertising.
Thankfully, the news came out today during the Warner Bros. Discovery’s Q2 earnings call that HBO Max will not be gutted, though it will be merged with Discovery+ in summer 2023.
We can only hope that the merger with Discovery+ will not affect S2 next year.
More updates to come as we have them!
