The fate of the Batman: Caped Crusader animated series is looking a bit brighter as multiple outlets are reportedly interested in securing the rights.

Following the merger of Warner Bros. and Discovery, newly minted CEO David Zaslav has made a lot of big decisions about changes to various productions, such as canceling the Batgirl movie. Another big surprise came when it was announced that the upcoming Batman: Caped Crusader animated series would no longer be coming to HBO Max.

The series was being overseen by Bruce Timm of Batman: The Animated Series with J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves, and Ed Brubaker serving as executive producers. While HBO Max will no longer be airing the series, it was made clear at the time of the announcement that it was not entirely dead.

According to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, Timm, Abrams, and Reeves have done major pitches for the series to multiple streaming platforms over this week and last. As of today, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu are all said to be interested in picking up the series.

No timeline is known for when a decision will be made, but it does appear that we will still be getting to see this highly-anticipated series at some point.
