The DC Universe streaming app debuted early this year, and along with many older shows and movies from the DC library, it brought with it the service’s first original series, Titans. Since then, those behind the service have announced a handful of new series – both live action and animated – including Doom Patrol, which spins out of a backdoor pilot in an early episode of the Titans, as well as Stargirl, which has steadily been moving forward with casting major recurring roles the past week and a half. While fans have been kept in the dark as to when to expect these shows to debut, now that 2019 is just around the corner, it looks as though we’re getting a clearer idea of when to expect the new series to start streaming.
Though an official announcement from DC Universe is pending – and sometimes even after a date has been announced, things have been changed – the way the dates are staggered out make it seem as though it’s fairly likely that this is the real release schedule.
Season 3 of Young Justice, subtitled Outsiders, will premiere on January 4, as has previously been announced.
On February 15th, Doom Patrol is expected to debut. Doom Patrol is about a team of misunderstood misfits who receive a call from Cyborg with a mission that will change their lives. The series stars Timothy Dalton as Dr. Niles “The Chief” Caulder, Brendan Fraser as Robotman, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Matt Bomer as Negative Man, Alan Tudyk as Mr. Nobody, and Jovian Wade as Cyborg.
About three months after that, on May 10th, Swamp Thing is expected to make its debut. Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana, but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe. Swamp Thing also stars Andy Bean as Alec Holland and Derek Mears as his elemental alter-ego Swamp Thing. In addition to them, the series will star Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne, Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu, Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland, Will Patton as Avery Sunderland, Henderson Wade as Matt Cable, Kevin Durand as Jason Woodrue, Jennifer Beals as Lucilla Cable and Ian Ziering as Daniel Cassidy, also known as the Blue Devil.
Stargirl is expected to debut in late summer, on August 9th. Starring Brec Bassinger as the eponymous heroine, Stargirl follows Courtney Whitmore, a high school sophomore who moves to Blue Valley, Nebraska after her mother gets married. When she discovers that her stepfather was once Starman’s sidekick Stripesy, Courtney uses Starman’s old cosmic staff to become Stargirl and inspires and rallies a motley crew of young, aspiring heroes to help her battle villains from the past. In additin to Bassinger, Stargirl stars Joel McHale as Sylvester Pemberton/Starman, Henry Thomas as Charles McNider/Doctor Mid-Nite, Lou Ferrigno Jr. Rex Tyler/Hourman, Brian Stapf as Ted Grant, and Anjelika Washington, Yvette Monreal and Christopher James Baker as undisclosed DC characters.
Last, but certainly not the least, is the streamer service’s second animated outing, Harley Quinn. A story about how Harleen Quinzel – better known as Harley Quinn – attempts to join the Legion of Doom after breaking up with the Joker, the animated series stars Kaley Cuoco as Harley and Lake Bell as Poison Ivy. Along with them are Diedrich Bader as Batman, Alan Tudyk as Joker, Christopher Meloni as Commissioner Gordon, and Rahul Kohli as Scarecrow. Also joining the cast as undisclosed DC characters are Ron Funches, J.B. Smoove, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes, Giancarlo Esposito, Natalie Morales, Jim Rash, and Tony Hale.
