Other big gets for the new platform are "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and "Pretty Little Liars".

The company said in a statement: "Anchored with and inspired by the legacy of HBO's excellence and award-winning storytelling, the new service will be "Maximized" with an extensive collection of exclusive original programming (Max Originals) and the best-of-the-best from WarnerMedia's enormous portfolio of beloved brands and libraries".

The streamer will house series including Batwoman and Katy Keene from Warner Bros TV, which will debut on The CW and then be added to the United States network's own OTT platform.

The HBO Max service was announced earlier this week, with a promotional video that listed a number of DC titles including Doom Patrol (formerly a DC Universe exclusive show), Batwoman, and the films Wonder Woman, Justice League, Shazam! Another popular show that will be leaving the streaming platform in 2021 is "The Office", which is another bad news for the fans of the show. (Marvel is a Disney-owned company, after all).

A massive raft of Max Original series has already been announced for HBO Max.

The post has led to some anger among the fans who have subscribed to the streaming service, with some even suggesting that they will end their subscription when the show leaves next year, US Weekly reported. In a press release, the company said that the streaming platform will have "an impressive direct-to-consumer experience for everyone ranging from families with young children to adults of all ages". However, "Friends" being the original owner of HBO will be available as an exclusive sitcom.
