Happy Monday heroes! We’ve learned over the weekend that Aqualad aka Jackson Hyde will be getting a HBO Max live-action series. The series will be produced by one Charlize Theron will be a executive producer on this “Dramedy” along with A.J. Dix, Beth Kono, and Andrew Haas of Denver & Delilah Films. What we know about the show itself is that it is based upon the Young Adult graphic novel “You Brought Me the Ocean,”. For those who do not know what the book was about, I’ll post a bit of a summary down below.

The series will explore the life of Jackson “Jake” Hyde, a gay teenager living in New Mexico. All his life, he has had a strange attraction to the water and yearns to escape his desert surroundings for the ocean. As he explores his abilities, including breathing under and controlling water, he also finds himself falling in love with his classmate, high school swim captain Kenny Liu.

Overall, I’m looking forward to seeing Jackson Hyde come to the small screen. Not that I’m unhappy with how the character has been on Young Justice but I think well be getting version of the character that people would be excited to see now that well be able to see him without the covert ops background.
