Like most writers, I’m trying to understand these wild moves at HBO Max.
Cancelling Westworld? Sure. Happens all the time. That’s TV.
Ditching an unaired season you’ve already shot, like what just happened to Minx? That’s heartbreaking, but I guess not unprecedented after Batwoman.
Pulling Westworld off the service is just bonkers to me. My only guess is that they’re going to stick it on an ad-based service with a different residual formula.
Makes it hard to want to make a show for HBO Max.
I mistakenly titled this post “Wither Westworld” instead of “Whither Westworld” and both work.
