Over the last year, DC Universe has attracted subscribers thanks to its selection of comics, classic films and TV shows, and new original scripted series like Titans and Doom Patrol. But DC’s parent company, WarnerMedia, is launching HBO Max next May. However, DC Universe is assuring fans that this won’t leave the fledgling streaming service in the dust.
After WarnerMedia announced HBO Max’s release date, DC Universe reps shared a statement on the platform’s official message boards. They dispelled any theories that the upcoming service will replace them as the home for all streamable DC shows. In fact, they sound genuinely excited about what HBO Max has in the works.
“Our WarnerMedia partners made some exciting news today, and we’re psyched!” the statement began. “We also want to assure you that DC Universe is still going strong with an exciting year of super-fan service coming through this year and next. From our original programming, library of beloved series, ever-expanding comic library, real world events, and our just launched all-new Community, we’re just getting started.”

DC Universe also once again teased what’s on the immediate horizon. Fans can expect the debuts of the Bizarro TV animated anthology series as well as DCYOU: Unscripted. The latter show invites DC fans to create their own program for the chance to premiere it on the platform in 2020. Additionally, the new Harley Quinn animated series and another season of Doom Patrol are dropping soon.
Meanwhile, HBO Max is developing a Green Lantern series as well as a Strange Adventures anthology show. It will also house every live-action DC movie released in the last 40 years.
