“Green Lantern” live-action series has got the green light at HBO Max and the news is confirmed by the streamer. The show was first announced last year being in development.
Based on the DC Comics property, the show will depict the adventures of a multitude of Lanterns, including Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, and Alan Scott — Earth’s first Green Lantern, who, true to the comics, is a gay man — and many more. The series will also include fan favorites such as Sinestro and Kilowog, and will also introduce new heroes to the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps.
The series will be written by Seth Grahame-Smith, writer of The Lego Batman Movie, and Marc Guggenheim, co-creator of Arrow and a writer on the 2011 Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds.
Marc Guggenheim, who in addition to working as a comic book writer, has written multiple DC projects for both film and television. He co-created and served as showrunner on the hit CW series “Arrow” as well as “Legends of Tomorrow.”
HBO Max has ordered 10 one-hour episodes. Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television.
The project was first unveiled in 2019 at the HBO Max WarnerMedia Day Presentation, where Berlanti said that it would be “unlike anything seen on television.”
He said at the time, “In what promises to be our biggest DC show ever made, we will be going to space with a Green Lantern television series.”
This is the latest DC show set up at HBO Max, it was recently announced James Gunn is working on a series spinoff ‘Peacemaker’ of his “Suicide Squad” film with John Cena attached to star. It was announced in July that Matt Reeves and Terrence Winter had received a series commitment from the streamer to create a series about the Gotham PD from Robert Pattinson's Batman universe.
Other DC shows currently at HBO Max include “Harley Quinn,” “Doom Patrol,” and “Titans.” “Strange Adventures” and “Justice League Dark” are in the works at HBO Max.
