HBO Max has announced that Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond and Green Lantern: The Animated Series, among many other titles, will be joining the streaming service starting January 1, 2021.

Warner Media confirms that all 109 episodes of Batman: The Animated Series will be available, as will all 52 episodes of Batman Beyond and 26 episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series.

HBO Max previously added Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Batman & Mr. Freeze: Sub-Zero, Batman & Harley Quinn back in July 2020, with Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman also recently added to the service’s library. The majority of the DC Comics-based animated content coming to HBO Max was previously available on the DC Universe streaming service, which is in the process of switching over to a comics-exclusive streaming platform starting January 2021.

Additional related titles coming January 2021 to HBO Max include the DC Showcase Batman: Death in the Family interactive animated short, the CW Seed Vixen animated series, and the DC Universe Movie titles Batman: Bad Blood, Batman: Hush, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, Superman: Doomsday and Superman: Man of Tomorrow.

More content – both new and classic – is slated to be added to the service in 2021 and beyond.

Additionally, The Batman is slated to join the streaming service starting February 15, 2021. All 65 episodes plus the series’ spin-off feature will be available.

HBO Max and Warner Media have provided program descriptions for Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond and Green Lantern: The Animated Series, all of which are available below:

Batman: The Animated Series
When the two shots rang out, Bruce Wayne’s life changed forever. He pledged himself to justice and he held that oath for years. Wearing many names – the Dark Knight, the World’s Greatest Detective, the Caped Crusader and Gotham’s Greatest Hero – he battled tragic foes like The Joker, Penguin, Mr. Freeze and so many more. But deep inside, he knew that he shared something with them that most of humanity wouldn’t understand – a commitment to the fight. The acclaimed, Emmy-winning TV series redefined this complex man as an edgy hero struggling for revenge and redemption each time he donned the cape and cowl, and this comprehensive collection contains every episode, with all the allies, criminals and showdowns in Batman’s history.

Batman Beyond
Terry McGinnis was just an ordinary teenager…until his father was mysteriously murdered. Suspecting foul play at his father’s company Wayne/Powers Corporation, Terry meets Bruce Wayne and learns a secret identity hidden for decades. Now too old to battle injustice, Wayne refuses to help. So Terry does what any brash young kid would do: steal the Batsuit and take matters into his own hands! Vowing to avenge his father’s death, Terry dons the high-tech suit tricked out with jetpacks, a supersensitive microphone and even camouflage capabilities in search of his father’s assassin. Get in on the action from the beginning of a new partnership between an ex-crimefighter and his apprentice.

Green Lantern: The Animated Series
The Green Lantern lights up adventure in this CG animated action series from world-renowned producer, artist and animator Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League). Based upon the DC Comics legend, this 26-episode groundbreaking superhero series follows Earth’s Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, a onetime test pilot who’s used to being in dangerous situations – but he’s never faced anything like this! Set in the farthest reaches of deep space, Green Lantern: The Animated Series finds Hal on the Guardian Frontier, where he must face down an invasion from the Red Lantern Corps. Powered by pure rage, the evil Red Lanterns have sworn to destroy the Green Lantern Corps and everything they stand for. Dispatched on the experimental spacecraft The Interceptor, Hal is soon joined by a group of heroes on a mission to protect Guardian Space – and the Green Lantern Corps itself!
