HBO Max is, once again, switching things up.

The streaming service will remove 36 titles from its service this week, including 20 Max originals, according to Variety.

“As we work toward bringing our content catalogs together under one platform, we will be making changes to the content offering available on both HBO Max and discovery+,” the streamer said in a statement Wednesday.

“That will include the removal of some content from both platforms.”

The Max originals losing their home on the service include teen drama Genera+ion, which was canceled last year following a 16-part freshman season.

The creator of Summer Camp Island, Julia Pott, took to social media to open up about the decision to purge the show.

“We worked for five years to make 100 episodes of animation,” she said.

“We worked late into the night, we let ourselves go, we were a family of hard working artists who wanted to make something beautiful, and HBO Max just pulled them all like we were nothing. Animation is not nothing!”

Potts declared that people will see the final season.

Changes are coming to HBO Max, which is gearing up to join forces with Discovery+ to be one unified streaming service next summer.
