HBO Max's Green Lantern series might be DC's most ambitious project, yet the anticipation behind it is still on a significant level. First announced in 2019, HBO Max officially picked up the Green Lantern series with Seth Grahame-Smith officially set as the director.

The upcoming series won't entirely center on Hal Jordan, instead, it would focus on several core characters from the DC Comics like Alan Scott, Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz, Kilowog, and Sinestro. Unfortunately, just when everything is laid out, the production faced a massive delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which prevented the series from filming.

Recently, one of the writers from HBO Max's Green Lantern series offered new promising details about the upcoming DC show.

Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim sat as a guest on the fan podcast Hall of Justice, wherein he discussed his current project, the Green Lantern series under HBO Max. "First of all, I think it's important to note that I'm not showrunning this show," Guggenheim said. "So, I have even less license than normal to speak about it... I wish I could talk about it. It's a really, really cool project. It's obviously very near and dear to my heart... I can say that I'm -- it's funny, I'm working today, in fact, on the outline for the season finale. So, we're working away."

Hopefully, this new TV series helps the fans who haven't moved on yet from the disastrous 2011 Green Lantern film starring Ryan Reynolds. If the Green Lantern series is as great as what Guggenheim spoke about, it could develop into multiple seasons and focus on the Green Lantern Corps and follow the lengthy storyline from the source material.

HBO Max's Green Lantern series has not yet officially revealed a potential release window, but fans can expect it to premiere sometime in 2023.
