The first round of shows to get the axe as Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger implements his new cost-saving measures have been announced. News about the forthcoming cuts came a couple of weeks ago per a CNN report that detailed a multistage plan for reducing its debts. From cutting shows to producing less content Bob Iger is committed to getting Disney’s books in order. At one point he said that “everything is on the table” in regard to Disney’s continued partnership with Comcast for Hulu. Disney owns two-thirds of the streaming service and there have been rumors it may sell it off to Comcast in a drastic move to cut more costs but, for now, it seems it will just remove more shows there as well.

The list of shows that will begin leaving both platforms on May 26 also includes some that have already recently been canceled. Most notably, Willow, which was axed mere months after its first season on Disney+ concluded. Its first episode streamed on November 30, 2022, with the final episode on January 11, 2023. Disney announced its cancellation in March. Willow’s writer, John Bickerstaff, took to social media to vent about what happened to the show, and others.

From Disney+/Hulu to Warner Bros./HBO Max the cuts keep happening

Per Market Watch (via Vulture) the list continues to grow between the two platforms. While this first round of shows leaving both services is lengthy it is expected there will be more which will be added at a later date. It has been said the final tally could be just under one hundred. This move quite literally follows similar decisions made by Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav who has been putting shows, and movies, on the chopping block, as well as removing content from HBO Max, which is soon to don yet another name, Max. HBO’s streaming offerings have had a convoluted history both before the debut of HBO Max and more recently with the HBO Max and Discovery+ Merger.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
