DC Universe has had a heck of a debut year. With shows such as Titans, Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing (RIP), and Young Justice: Outsiders, it’s easy to see how and why they will continue to keep the streaming platform open. At least for now. So what good news did the DC bring us on Saturday night at SDCC?
Titans is currently wrapping up their second season and gave fans an exclusive look at some of the characters featured – including Aqualad and Deathstroke! The cast and crew were not at the panel due to the death of a crew member earlier this week. The sophmore season will feature Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne, Esai Morales as Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke the Terminator, and Natalie Gumede as Mercy Graves. We won’t have to wait long for the next season as it’s dropping Friday, September 6th.
In exciting news for everyone, we learned that Doom Patrol will be getting a second season! Showrunner Jeremy Carver and star Diane Guerrero were there to tell the news. The zany show of misfits with superpowers will be returning to DC Universe AND HBO Max in 2020. Additionally, all 15 episodes of the first season will be available on HBO Max when the service debuts next year. Unfortunately we don’t know much more about it but bring it on!
The Harley Quinn animated series has yet to debut but we learned a little more about it thanks to producers Jennifer Coyle, Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumaker. “The aim of the show is very much on the liberation of Harley Quinn (with help of Ivy) from Joker.” As stated before, the series is not for children and contains a lot of adult language and themes. Bonus fun fact! Kite-Man will be in the series. Hell yeah. You can check out the teaser trailer below!
Want more Young Justice? You got it! A fourth season of the animated series is currently in development. Greg Weissman & Brandon Vientiane of the creative team behind the series thanked fans for their continued support. The show wouldn’t exist without them. No news of when we’ll get to see it on DC Universe but exciting times are ahead for fans. As a treat, they aired the first episode to fans exclusively at the panel.
That was it! No mention of Swamp Thing and surprisingly nothing about Stargirl. I honestly expected a bit more from them but alas, it wasn’t in the cards. Maybe in the coming days we’ll see a bit more news from these series.
