A Green Lantern original series is coming to HBO Max, reports THR.
The show will focus on Earth-based Lanterns Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, Guy Gardner, and Alan Scott (Earth’s first Green Lantern introduced in the 1940s comics). Fan-favorite alien Lantern Kilowog will be included, as will Sinestro, the Lantern-turned-villain. The Lantern series will be split into 10, one-hour episodes, and will reportedly span decades and galaxies.
Seth Grahame-Smith (The Lego Batman Movie) will be the showrunner and will co-write the first episode with Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Legends of tomorrow), who also wrote for the 2011 Green Lantern film starring Ryan Reynolds. The series will be produced by another 2011 Green Lantern alum – Greg Berlanti, who is producing alongside Warner Bros. Television. Berlanti is also behind Arrow, The Flash, Doom Patrol, and other prolific TV series.
