Get ready to add another subscription service to your Roku or Console, Warner Bros. is in the process of creating their own DC-branded streaming service. According to an exclusive report by Deadline, and confirmed by DC on twitter, the service is set to debut in 2018 with two highly-anticipated shows.
The first show will be the return of Young Justice for it’s 3rd season. A season that was previously thought to be dead, after it was cancelled, but revived once fans binged it on Netflix. The 3rd season renames the series as Young Justice: Outsiders, which lets us assume that the team will be ex-communicated with the Justice League in some form or fashion. Young Justice: Outsiders was initially assumed to be a Netflix Original, but WB and DC opted to smartly use it as a series launch for their new service, instead.
Following that is a show that few believed we’d even be getting, a Greg Berlanti Teen Titans-inspired live action show called “Titans“. Berlanti, known for being the pioneer of DC Superhero shows on CW, will be joined by writer of the series Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery, Underground), Geoff Johns, and Sarah Schechter as executive producers of Titans.
According to the report, Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.
The creation of Titans shows Warner Bros. and DC’s dedication to creating a Teen Titans Live-Action series. Previously, a version of this show was earmarked for TNT, but was cancelled before it even began. With Titans being on Warner Bros. own DC-branded streaming service, the show will be able to essentially play by its own rules, without fear of cancellation before start.
Warner Bros.’ DC Streaming Service will be available next year, 2018! As more information comes out about this new service, we’ll have it here on Cinelinx!
