Lanterns is the new addition to the new DC world and its co-head James Gunn has confirmed the writers of the show.

In a post on Instagram the Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker said Damon Lindelof, Chris Mundy, and Tom King will form the series writing team.

"A hearty welcome to Chris and damonlindelof as they join the DC Studios family (no welcome necessary for old tomking_tk, who has been here nearly since inception)."

Damon previously was known for his in 2019's Watchmen, and the series won the 2020 Emmy for Outstanding Limited Series.

While Chris has received critical acclaim for series including True Detective and Ozark, Tom has years of experience writing for DC under his belt.
