The Warner Bros. Discovery merger has led to a number of surprising moves, like the nearly-completed film Batgirl being scrapped and the last-minute cancellation of Chad on the day Season 2 was set to premiere on TBS. And now we can’t help but wonder about how some beloved HBO Max originals could be affected.

In recent months, a number of originals have been canceled, such as Raised by Wolves, Made for Love, Close Enough, Gordita Chronicles, and Little Ellen (with its third season completed). “Live-action kids and family programming will not be part of our programming focus in the immediate future,” an HBO Max spokesperson said in a statement (via Deadline) regarding Gordita Chronicles‘ cancellation.
