HBO Max’s Generation Moves to Tubi

By Jessica Lerner 

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:


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.
