King of Atlantis isn’t the only DC show getting a cross-platform run during the ACME Night block. The highly-anticipated Batman: Caped Crusader animated series is also expected to have dual premieres on Cartoon Network and HBO Max. Neither series has a release date yet. Regardless, Warner Bros. will likely reveal new details at DC FanDome next month.

Secrets of the Mogwai is a prequel to Gremlins that is set in the 1920. The series will reveal how 10-year-old Sam Wing met Gizmo while growing up in Shanghai. HBO Max renewed the show for a second season earlier this year.
