Fans Unhappy With Warner Bros. Discovery’s Cancellations

Minx is among several HBO shows that have been canceled abruptly and removed from HBO Max despite being a success among viewers.

Yet, one of these canceled titles that have taken viewers aback is the popular sci-fi hit series Westworld. Although fans were disappointed at its cancellation, HBO hasn’t yet confirmed a reason for the same.
