WB pulls ‘Friends’ and ‘Riverdale’ from Netflix, and announce streaming service

WarnerMedia announced yesterday that its long untitled streaming service will be called HBO Max and launch in Spring of 2020 with exclusive rights to all the episodes of current Netflix favorites like Friends, Riverdale, and Pretty Little Liars. The platform will also be home to some series that have been harder to find on streaming platforms, like The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. The Netflix deal will reportedly expire at year’s end.

HBO Max has also already announced a variety of original upcoming series like a Gremlins animated prequel, a Dune sequel series called Dune: The Sisterhood, and Kaley Cuoco-starrer The Flight Attendant. The service will be home to programming from Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes and more. HBO Max also has a two-feature-film deal with Reese Witherspoon.
