HBO Max has given out a series order to “Green Lantern,” Variety has learned. Based on the DC Comics property, the show was first announced as being in development last year. Plot details are now available for the first time, however.
The show will depict the adventures of a multitude of Lanterns, including Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and Alan Scott — Earth’s first Green Lantern, who, true to the comics, is a gay man — and many more.
The series will also include fan favorites such as Sinestro and Kilowog, and will also introduce new heroes to the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps. HBO Max has ordered 10 one-hour episodes.
Bolding is mine.
