Looney Tunes is the latest victim of HBO Max’s library culling.
The streamer has retired seasons 16-31 of the animated series, which translates to 256 shorts from 1950 to 2004, Vulture reports. The site notes that HBO Max chose not to renew its license to the Warner Bros. shorts after it expired in late 2022.
Looney Tunes is the latest series to fall victim to Warner Bros. Discovery’s cost-cutting efforts at HBO Max. The streamer has been canceled since the beginning of December FBoy island, Legendary, bitch (which has been renewed for season 2 and production is almost complete) and Love life. Meanwhile, HBO has canceled dramas The Nevers, western world and The wife of the time traveler was also part of the content from the HBO Max library Raised by wolves and found Magic Mike and leader of the class. Warner Bros. Discovery plans to buy the titles on free, ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) services like Pluto TV, Tubi and Peacock.
