Westworld is leaving HBO Max
It’s presently not clear when Westworld will likely be faraway from Warner Bros. Discovery’s flagship streaming service, nevertheless it doubtless gained’t be alone. The experiences point out that HBO’s Love Life and The Nevers can even have to search out new houses.
Once we checked on Monday night, all three reveals have been nonetheless out there on the service.
