Legendary Canceled After 3 Seasons at HBO Max

By Jessica Lerner 

HBO Max is canceling the reality competition series Legendary after three seasons.

The news comes a day after the streamer axed fellow reality competition series FBoy Island.

Legendary follows LGBT house members, from eight to ten houses, as they go through nine balls (dancing, voguing and walking events), with a $100,000 award for the winning house. Cast members included judges Jameela Jamil, Law Roach, Leiomy Maldonado, Megan Thee Stallion and Keke Palmer; MC Dashaun Wesley and DJ MikeQ.


The cancellation adds to the long list of shows that the streaming service has either canceled or removed in recent months. As Warner Bros. Discovery prepares to combine HBO Max and Discovery+ into one streaming service, scheduled to debut in spring 2023, more cuts and cancellations are expected.

Variety reporting no unscripted series at HBO Max has been renewed since the Discovery-WarnerMedia merger in April.

The news source earlier stated that Casey Bloys, the chief content officer, explained in a memo how scripted programming would take center stage for the brand, which “involves an honest assessment of what we need moving forward,” following 70 layoffs across HBO and HBO Max.
