Deadline is reporting that the upcoming Green Lantern TV show for HBOMax has tapped Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and Marc Guggenheim (2011 Green Lantern) to write the long awaited and highly anticipated show.

Grahame-Smith will also serve as showrunner for the Berlanti Productions (Arrow, Flash, Titans) series.

This project was first revealed to be in the works at the end of 2019 during the HBOMax and Warner Media Presentation. Berlanti promised that it would be unlike anything seen on television. Then earlier in 2020 Sarah Aubrey (HBOMax Head of Original Content) said that the series would “span several decades and focus on two stories about Green Lanterns on Earth” as well as a Sinestro arc in space.

With that the show will depict the adventures of multiple Lanterns, including Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and Alan Scott (Earth’s first Green Lantern, who, true to the comics, is a gay man) as well as many more. The series will also showcase fan favorites such as Sinestro and Kilowog, and also introduce new heroes to the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps
