Although the decision was made by the new CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery David Zaslav, HBO Max also faced heat for allegedly supporting racism by canceling the Constantine restart of the series.

There have been no further details regarding the release date of the series except for the studio behind which is none other than Warner Bros. Based on the series’ previous releases, the series will likely hit HBO Max’s digital shelves in due course.
