Lanterns: HBO gives series order to Green Lantern series from Chris Mundy, Damon Lindelof & Tom King

HBO has given a series order to Lanterns, a live-action Green Lantern series from Chris Mundy, Damon Lindelof & Tom King.

Lanterns, the long-awaited Green Lantern series, has officially been given an eight-episode, straight-to-series order by HBO, Warner Bros. Television, and DC Studios. Chris Mundy (True Detective: Night Country) will serve as showrunner and executive producer and will co-write the series alongside Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers) and Tom King (Supergirl).

The series “follows new recruit John Stewart and Lantern legend Hal Jordan, two intergalactic cops drawn into a dark, earth-based mystery as they investigate a murder in the American heartland.” I can’t say I expected the first major live-action Green Lantern project in over a decade to involve an earth-based murder mystery, but that said, I am down for whatever Mundy, Lindelof, and King are cooking up.

Casey Bloys, chairman and CEO of HBO and Max content, said: “We are elated to be reuniting with both Chris Mundy and Damon Lindelof as they partner with Tom for this fresh take on DC’s ‘Green Lantern.’ As part of James and Peter’s vision for the DC Universe, this first new live action series will mark an exciting new era.

In a joint statement, James Gunn and Peter Safran, co-chairmen and co-CEOs of DC Studios, added: “We’re thrilled to bring this seminal DC title to HBO with Chris, Damon and Tom at the helm. John Stewart and Hal Jordan are two of DC’s most compelling characters, and LANTERNS brings them to life in an original detective story that is a foundational part of the unified DCU we’re launching next summer with ‘Superman.’
