One HBO Max original series has found a new home.
The first season of Generation (Genera+ion) will be available on Tubi next month. HBO Max canceled the series in September 2021 after a single season, and the show was removed from the streamer, along with dozens of other titles, in August 2022.
Executive producer Ben Barnz shared the good news on Twitter:
Thrilled to announce that @generationonmax has found a home for ALL @Tubi – all we ever wanted was to make people feel seen and now everyone can watch starting February 1st!!! We are thrilled. Please spread the word far and wide. With love and gratitude – Z, D & B

The show centered on a group of high school teenagers in Orange County, Calif., who explore their sexuality in the contemporary world. In this conservative community, this challenges their deeply ingrained views about life, love, and the essence of family.
The mass cancelations and purging of HBO Max programming has happened on a regular basis over the past few months. It started over the summer when the streamer shelved the nearly-complete $90 million feature Batgirl and continued to scrap HBO Max programming and remove titles en masse from the streamer’s library as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s cost-cutting measures.
The practice is supposedly behind us, as WBD CFO Gunnar Wiedenfels said last week the company is done axing shows and movies for tax write-offs.
