Westworld will no longer stream on HBO Max in a continued effort to cut costs at Warner Bros. Discovery.
Following yesterday's news that HBO Max original Minx had been canceled, the platform is now also set to remove series including Westworld, Love Life, and The Nevers. The move to pull series will reportedly save the company money when it comes to residuals for cast and crew.
Westworld was canceled last month after four seasons, while The Nevers was set to debut the second half of its first season next year. Both series are likely to find new homes on another platform.
Minx had already been renewed for a second season when it was canceled, effectively reversing the decision. It will now be shopped around by Lionsgate TV. Romantic comedy anthology Love Life, another Lionsgate series, had been in limbo regarding news of a third season prior to its cancellation. Both seasons will now be taken off HBO Max.
Exactly when these series will be removed from HBO Max has not been revealed yet.
