This week, Warner Bros. TV Group cut 82 employees across unscripted, scripted Animation and scripted divisions. 

The three brands, Warner Bros. Animation (WBA), Cartoon Network Studios (CNS) as well Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, will remain distinct.

Warner Bros. Animation, as well as Cartoon Network Studios, will be combined into one unit. However, the brands will remain distinct.

In a report by Deadline, Warner Bros. has also changed its mind about its original decision to shut down its Warner Bros. Television Workshop.

The new modifications in Cartoon Network Studios come when some of its shows have already become difficult to locate and watch. 

The cut-backs also come in the wake of Discovery's purchase from Warner Media from AT&T. HBO Max and Discovery Plus are expected to merge into one streaming service by 2023.

Since taking over in April, President David Zaslav, who previously had been the CEO of Discovery, promised to trim $3 billion from the company.
