DC Universe Offers A Timeline For When You Can Expect All Of Its Original Shows

DC Universe has announced a timeline during which fans can expect to see the original programs that the streaming service is offering.  The countdown is on for ‘Titans’ which premieres on October 12, but the new graphic details when the other shows can be expected.  It also indicates that the first season of  ‘Titans’, which consists of 12 episodes, will wrap at the end of December.  DC Universe previously stated that it was their intention to have a new episode available every week through 2019.  This appears to indicate that unlike Netflix, etc., DC Universe will dole all of its shows out one episode at a time, so no binging until a season ends.

As for when to expect everything else:

  • As was previously announced, ‘Young Justice’ will debut in the New Year, on January 4, but the bad news is that this season is being split in two.  The second batch of episodes will arrive in June.
  • ‘Doom Patrol’, which is filming now, will arrive in February and wrap up in May.
  • ‘Swamp Thing’, which is still undergoing the casting process, is expected to debut in late May/early June and will end at the end of August.
  • DC Universe is hoping that ‘Stargirl’ will soar at the end of August, or the beginning of September.  If that works out, the show will wrap up by the end of December.
  • The animated ‘Harley Quinn’, which was teased at New York Comic Con, will arrive in mid-October and will spill over into 2020.

At the bottom of the graphic, it states that these dates are “Subject to Change.”

The biggest bummer is that ‘Young Justice’ is being split into two half-seasons, which is a problem that Cartoon Network had with that and other series.  It takes so long to create animated shows, but producer Greg Weisman has gone on the records saying that 12 episodes are complete and in the can.  That could also explain why ‘Harley Quinn’ is set so far off.

A second season of ‘Titans’ has been ordered, but it may not arrive until 2020.  There is also buzz that ‘Batgirl’ will get her own series, but that isn’t scheduled.  If it materializes, it doesn’t look like fans will get to see it until 2020.

DC Universe recently inked a deal with Netflix to distribute ‘Titans’ internationally.  It remains to be seen whether that will carry over with the others.  However, Warner Brothers is actively looking to expand DC Universe into Canada.

How does this timeline look?  Are you upset that the shows are spaced so far apart?  Would you rather have a variety of original projects available at one time?

Jason Motes

Jason’s earliest memory is of watching ‘Batman,’ followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn’t run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason’s father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of ‘Snow White.’ (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek…) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
